A joint photography and film exhibition by two University Centre Weston pupils will take place this weekend.

Film and media students Georgia Chesters and April Christine will be screening two projects they made for their final-year university studies.

Georgia’s film, No Place Like Home, focuses on life on the Bournville estate, while April’s photography project, This Is Our Weston, highlights some of the businesses operating in the town through pictures.

Georgia’s proud mum, Pauline Gilpin, said: “Georgia is very nervous as she has worked so hard on this.

“She has lived on the Bournville all her life and wants to paint the estate in a better light than it is often perceived in.”

The screening will take place at the For All Healthy Living Centre, on Lonsdale Avenue, on Saturday at 3.30pm.

Refreshments will be served and no entry is free.
