Stamford solicitors Buckles have had something of an art attack at their town centre branch – thanks to the creative talents of local schoolchildren.

Buckles property solicitor Claire Tomlinson approached Copthill School to ask if a selection of pupils’ work could be displayed in the St Mary’s Hill office.

The legal team was delighted when the school said yes, and the artwork – which includes pictures, painting and models – has now taken pride of place, to be admired by staff and clients alike.

Sarah Westwood, who heads up the office, said: “The art looks amazing. I came up with the idea to try and bring the office to life, and Claire contacted the school to see if they could help us out.

“As well as Buckles being able to continue to forge links with the local community, in this case Copthill School, the work has certainly injected some vibrancy to the office and has certainly become a talking point among visitors.”

Deputy head at Copthill Helen Schofield said the budding young artists were thrilled to have the opportunity to show off their hard work to the community.

Helen said: “The ‘Ascot Hats’, which were made by some of our Year 6 pupils, have been a really well received as have the ‘famous portraits’ by Year 2 children, including some colourful portraits of celebrities such as Jeremy Clarkson and Usain Bolt!

“Pupils at Copthill are lucky enough to be able to create these wonderful pieces in a purpose-built art studio, forming part of a creative suite here at the school.”
