Yet another successful Spring exhibition has now closed. We had a wonderful display of arts and crafts and some delicious homemade cakes in the cafe. The winner of the public vote for the best craft table was Sandra Lee with her delightful display of felted items and Eric Humphries won the best picture vote with his oil painting entitled Green Pond.
This was a very successful exhibition with more visitors than in recentl years. Both the artists and crafters had some good sales which was very encouraging after the last 2 years of lockdowns and shutdowns due to the covid pandemic.
The winner of the most voted for craft table was a new member, Sandra Lee. She displayed a lovely selection of needle- felted items.
The winner of the most voted for picture was Sara Sawers with her beautiful brown bear picture.
