A STAINED-GLASS window created by the community at Falmouth Art Gallery has been highly commended in national heritage awards.

Falcare, formerly Mencap, and children from the Kerrier Pupil Referral Unit transformed the stairway into a sea of shimmering colour, inspired by Henri Matisse's stained-glass windows at the Chapel of the Rosary in Venice.

Gallery staff worked with heritage consultant Michael Swift of Truro Cathedral and ran workshops with artist Susan Kinley.

The Hudson's Heritage Awards celebrate business success and creativity in the UK heritage industry.
