This year’s art exhibition went off very well. Pictures were contributed by 49 artists and of the 279 on show, 71 were sold. The exhibition made a profit of £556 pounds. Most years (except when the Society has unexpected large expenses) the profits are donated to a deserving local charity. This year the Society will round up the profit made to £600 from its own funds and donate this to the Children’s Hospice at Quidenham. The Art Section, who put in so much work to make the exhibition a success, can be satisfied that their efforts are benefiting a very good cause.
The picture shows the Town Mayor, Councillor David Gooch, talking to members invited to the preview evening after he had formally opened the exhibition.
