Art Club Annual Show

“This yearly event regularly attracts a large crowd of visitors to the Keene Hall and Lodge Room. The showing of pictures by the club’s members is supplemented by a dozen or so stalls presenting a wide range of craft work. The club displayed over 175 pictures , many of local scenes, in a variety of media. This year’s show, which raised over £700 to be divided amongst several charities, was ably organised by the chairman, Ray Fullerton, supported by secretary, Maureen Stoneham.

The club meets every Tuesday afternoon throughout the year at the vicarage hall in Beehive Lane. The fifty active members pay a subscription of £12.50 with a further 100 or so associate members paying £2.50. The programme includes demonstrations, talks and trips to places of interest. Occasional exhibitions are held by invitation at other local venues, raising funds for a variety of good causes.”
