Exhibition Openings

 Photographic Exhibition

A beautiful Autumn day was the perfect setting for a well attended opening of the Photographic exhibition this afternoon.  
First Prize Winner- Simon Slattery.
First Prize (my appologies  for the reflections


The quality of the work presented is exceptional and made it very difficult for the judging, which apparently took 2 hours. 

Second Prize

Second Prize Winner- Jan Worden.




Due to the difficulty and quality of photographs, there were also several honourable mentions given. 






Third Prize- Julia Mannix.
Fourth Prize- Joanne Emmery.
Well done to all those who have entered their work and congratulations to the winners.
Highly Commended
This is one of four Highly commended pieces awarded, at the time of taking these the others did not have their labels up.

This Tryptich received many
wonderful comments on the day.












Travelling Wrinklies 

by Carol Clue, Kerrie Bennet and Pat Low.





This lovely group opened their exhibition on Sunday 1st June, to lovely weather yet again and a nice little group of visitors.


I understand that the day was very busy and had several sales.  Well done everyone.
Above is a selection of their work which I hope will entice you to come out and visit us to view the two exhibitions in full which are now currently on display until the 29th of June.

Future Events


As the year continues to move along so very fast I would like to say that we will be holding a FATHER's DAY raffle, I am in the process of looking for sponsors and prizes, so that is something else to look forward to.

BIG INCREASE VISITOR NUMBERS

The Committee and Shop Coordinator have been 

keeping a running tally of our visitors for the year.  
It is very pleasing to be able to report that without exception- EVERY month has seen a marked increase in Visitor numbers. 
Our best day is Sunday for every month, and it is a toss up for Friday and Saturday coming in second.
Thursday continues and has traditionally been our quietest day, yet I am pleased to say that over the coarse of each month even these numbers are steadily increasing.

SO WITH VOLUNTEERS DAY APPROACHING -

A HUGE  THANK YOU TO ALL OUR VOLUNTEERS

 FOR SUCH A GREAT EFFORT!!!
