Open Day November 2017

DSC02565What a brilliant day!

The culmination of a years work.

Well done for the huge team effort; whether you were helping to hang, setting up, chatting to the visitors, making tea and washing up. We had plenty of help and it all went very smoothly.

On the day we had a constant stream of visitors; so another big thank you to everyone who told all their friends and families and put posters up in their neighbourhood. Really well done to Rosemary who delivered hundreds of flyers in Chalk and put posters on lamp posts. It all paid off.

Well done to everyone who helped out in the kitchen, you just stepped in when help was needed. So good to see.
