A series of sculptures from a prominent Dutch artist are on display in a Fenland museum until the new year.

The History Rising project, produced by Dutch artist Marjolijn Dijkman, is being showcased at Wisbech and Fenland Museum.

MP Steve Barclay joined artists, sculptors and residents at the exhibition’s launch.

He said: “Funding for artistic projects in Cambridgeshire is often unfairly focused around the city at the expense of rural areas like Fenland.

“The great thing about this programme is that there’s clearly a real interest in innovative artistic projects that involve people of all ages and get them thinking about the importance of history to our shared culture.
