An art society which as been running in Weston-super-Mare for more than 60 years has come to an end.

Weston Society of Arts, which has been running since the 1950s, has donated its remaining funds to Weston Museum, to support its refurbishment project.

The £3,330 will pay for plinths to hold the marble busts of Weston men, including Joseph Edgar, Thomas Tutton and Edward Smyth-Pigott.

The money will also go towards paying for an interactive facility in the new Seaside Gallery.
