On Wednesday 22 November 2023 we had our Creative Activities session featuring short works by our our Creative Authors and artworks by our Watercolour Group.
The art was of a very high standard, and exhibited on one side of our meeting room. As you can see below, we have a group where all levels are welcome, and they are to be congratulated. We also congratulate the group leader Lyn for another outstanding exhibition. You can find out more about our Watercolour Group from here, or you can email the group here.
In addition to the watercolour exhibition, we had no less than sixteen stories and poems read to us, mostly by their authors. You can find more about our Creative Writing Group here, or you can email the group here. There was the usual wide range of items as shown below:

It was then time for tea, coffee and a cake sale – both in portions and as whole cakes – raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, a really worthwhile charity, which – in a manner of speaking – placed a cherry on the morning for us all!
