The Summer Show was held on Saturday 27 June. The main features were exhibitions of Art and Photography by village exhibitors – and also Flowers, Flower Arrangements and Homecrafts –plus several competitions for children. Thanks especially to the organisers of the Art (Mary Elkerton and Jan Leech) and Photographs (Paul Shepherd, Chris Hancock and David Hannan) and Children’s competitions (Barbara Atkins). The standards this year were again incredibly high: if you missed it then you missed a treat – and you really should make sure you come (and enter) next year!

Past event: Getting Ahead for Christmas
An evening of festive inspiration and creativity was held on Friday 28 November 2014. There was a demonstration of Christmas flowers by Suzanne Evetts and workshops on Christmas tree decorations, canapes, cake decorations, gift-wrapping and make-up. Thank you to everyone who came. It was a very successful evening – very well-attended and many requests that it should be repeated on a future occasion. Thank you also to all the workshop and demonstration leaders who gave their time for free – eanbling us to raise over £400 for the Community Centre funds. You will find some photos of the event here.
