At our recent meeting we decided to hold fees for Shepherds Dene as they are despite them having increased the cost to us. The Club will cover any shortfall for the current financial year. The position will be reviewed after the October visit.
Please pay attention to your latest newsletter in relation to booking for Shepherds Dene and getting painting for this year's exhibitions.
Also, please take note of the Painting Challenge at Hardwick Park and the painting day arranged by Mike for July 13th. Directions are enclosed with your newsletter.
We hope to run another trip to the Great North Art Show at Ripon Cathedral. See flyer for details. Names to be given by 9th July and payment by 13th August. Last time we made a loss so we need your support this time if the trip is to run. The Club Exhibition Rules have been updated, so please click on the file below and then open it from your download files.
