Exhibition 28th & 29th March This has now been postponed due to Corona virus. Further details will follow.
"Exhibition Update. Wednesday 4th March 2020. 24 more sleeps! It looks like our 2020 show is on course to be another tremendous success. We have sold 38 boards and 9 tables, the board numbers are down by 9 on last year but that should allow for more space to put the extra table in! If you do want an extra board or have booked a full table and could manage with half, please let me know. I need the full details of all pictures for your board/s as soon as possible, definitely by Tuesday 24th March at the latest, this allows me to complete the Sales spreadsheet. If you are entering the “Tree” competition, the details of pictures for this won’t appear on the spreadsheet. Don’t include these on your entry form. We will have a separate list for these pictures with prices displayed on a list on the Competition Boards. Please limit your entry to one picture. I hope to have posters, flyers and car “stickers” available for you to distribute next Tuesday. I won’t be at art myself but will send them with another member. Please do takes these and find a place for them in your village. We really need to advertise our show as widely as possible. I will post on the Facebook page again frequently, please share this! The banner and road posters should go up next week as well. Linda Hellawell is organising the raffle, it was agreed last night that members would provide the prizes, obviously this is voluntary and we don’t want to be overloaded so don’t feel obliged. Maybe you could offer a small piece of your Art Work or the usual bottle or chocolate always goes down well, Easter is nigh!! We make most of our money on the raffle and the refreshments so it is vital that we sell, sell, sell both of these. There is always tremendous pressure on the kitchen staff who need all the support they can get, especially at lunch time. Please aim to be around for most of the day if you can be and pop in to the kitchen for a bit of washing up whenever it looks stressful. We could do with one more person to definitely commit to the 1200-1400hrs slot. If you need any information from me or have lost the email containing your entry form, please email me on : firstname.lastname@example.org Linda"

You may or may not be aware we have again been invited to exhibit at the Market Hall Fringe this summer. We had great success last year, selling over £1200 worth of work and contributed £300 to the Macmillan Cancer Support. Also it is a good opportunity to promote the group and our work to a wider audience.
This year the dates are Saturday 6th July to Saturday 13th July.
To aid us in organising the event please can you let us know how many boards and/or table space you need (at this point, this need only be an indication and not a definite commitment), also if you can help with any of the setup, close down and/ or covering of shifts through the week.
To cover associated costs this year there will be a charge of £5 per board or table section. Commission will be 20% to Macmillan Cancer Support for all work sold.
There will be lists available from next Tuesday’s meeting to sign up. Alternatively you can email Geoff or myself your requirements/availability to help or if you have any questions. (email address have been added to the group email sent 9th May).
