Local Talent Displayed at the Craft Exhibition

The first exhibition devoted entirely to the work of Galleywood Residents attracted an impressive range of entrants to the Keene Hall in September. The numerous crafts displayed included quilting, patchwork, dolls houses, tapestry, woodcraft, toys, watercolour painting and miniatures, picture framing, cross stitch, knitting, bridesmaids dresses, christening gowns, floral displays, canal art, painted glassware, greeting cards, cookery and embroidery. Galleywood library displayed a selection of books on various crafts and Christine Whybro was signing copies of her book on 19th Century Galleywood. Ron White’s collection of photographs of the old village attracted, as usual, great interest. A Tea Towel and notelet set showing selected scenes from around the village had been commissioned by the Parish Council and these were selling well. The event was judged a resounding success by all who attended.
