It had been a real scorcher during the day so we expected to see quite a few members coming along to take advantage of the hall’s air conditioning. Sadly we were only 9 in total which was disappointing.
Members painted various subjects, finished off work started at Chalk Church and some made a start on this months’ subjects of Transport and Animals
There was also a preliminary portrait of our PAOTM subject, Elaine Page
All refreshments including various biscuits have been renewed and the kitchen fully open so do come along to our next meeting on Saturday the 25th September. We need your support to keep the group financially viable.

The weather on the day was changeable. We saw the sun, briefly, it was a bit breezy, chilly and finally smoky. In spite of this we had 15 hardy souls just enjoying being together and producing quite a bit a work
