(recheduled from April)

Our annual celebration evening, held in the Hydroponicum at Nature's World, was once again well attended and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. There was a second chance to view our 'Spirit of Place' paintings, first seen at the Python gallery, together with other recent work.

Kate Geelan was presented with the Marilyn Bramley Plate for her sterling work in supporting the group, especially for her brilliant felt workshops.
