ARTIST Haidee-Jo Summers braved the pouring rain by the River Thames to paint the Diamond Jubilee River Pageant last weekend.

Haidee-Jo, from Sudbrook, was one of only 20 artists from across the UK given a prime spot to capture the event.

As the weather worsened throughout the day, many of Haidee-Jo’s fellow artists fled for cover but the local girl kept calm and carried on - and was rewarded with a television interview with Anneka Rice.
