A print of a warship has been donated to the town that helped fund it.

Andrew White gave the picture of minesweeper HMS Beryl to Bourne Town Council earlier this month. Andrew, pictured above with town mayor Bob Russell, commissioned the original painting and wanted to do something for the town that helped build it. Town clerk Nelly Jacobs said: “I believe the people of Bourne contributed about £50,000.”

The print will be displayed in the library in Bourne Corn Exchange.Photo: MSMP030315-002js
