A CRAFTY Gourock mum has scooped two top accolades at a national awards ceremony.

Cheryl Gray, who runs ARTventurers Inverclyde, took home 'Most Loved Creative Franchise Territory' and 'Most Loved Activity Leader' in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The prestigious 'What's On 4 Kids' award ceremony would usually have involved a trip to London, but instead Cheryl was able to tune in from the comfort of her Gourock home.

The 40-year-old has been a pioneer for the franchise across Inverclyde and has watched children in her classes growing from babies to beginning primary school this year.

She has been running the ARTventurers franchise locally for the last five years and has been keeping youngsters busy during the Covid-19 pandemic.

In March, she held a 'Neighbourhood Easter Egg Hunt' before taking part in the 'Big Neighbourhood Sunflower Project' in aid of Ardgowan Hospice.

She is currently planning a Hallowe'en event and more information can be found on the ARTventurers Inverclyde Facebook.
