It will be a bittersweet moment for Guiseley artist Ian White when he finds a buyer for his original pencil sketch of Yeadon Town Hall.

Ian, 49, drew the local landmark back in 2005, and the sketch was used to create a successful print and even appeared on a mug. But now it is up for sale to make more space in the artist’s home gallery.

The town hall and drawing have a great sentimental attachment for Ian, having spent 20 years appearing in amateur shows and pantos in the building. He said: “That’s why I want the picture to go to someone who shares the same affection for the place which is such a focal point for the local community.”

Anyone interested in buying the sketch can contact Ian on 01943 878466.
