Tribute to late Hollingworth artist

An exhibition in memory of talented artist Roger Bamford is now showing at The People's Gallery in Stalybridge. 

Roger, 66, who lived in Hollingworth, specialised in watercolours and taught a popular class at the Melbourne Street gallery.

In tribute to Roger, the gallery is holding a display of his fine work this month, with everyone welcome to go along and see Roger’s talent for themselves and remember him.

His funeral service was held at Dukinfield Crematorium last Wednesday and attended by around 100 family, friends and colleagues.

The People’s Gallery is open from 9.30am-4.30pm from Tuesday to Friday, 10am-5pm on Saturdays and 11.30am-4.30pm on Sundays.
