Children from Prince's Mead School, Abbots Worthy, are helping to cheer up patients waiting to see the doctor.

Striking pictures in the style of Picasso, which were painted by Year 5 pupils, will be on display in St Clement's Surgery, Winchester.

Dr Kim Roberts, who works at the surgery and whose son attends the school, said: "I am delighted by the colour and vibrancy of the pictures.

"They will enhance the waiting room and cheer up patients."

The project was co-ordinated by Dr Roberts and art teacher, Daphne Vaughan. The pictures will be changed each half-term.

"The pupils were delighted to be involved," said head teacher, Penelope Kirk. "We are working at improving links with the community."
