The Exhibition is now open and it looks great. As we worked, we received many positive comments about the standard of the professional images.

Thanks to our helpers, Thomas Buckwalter, Bill Chambers, Jill Helps, Katherine James, Rob Oyston, Susan Slack and Colin Schofield, the work of hanging the images, was quickly completed. A special thank you to Katherine James for organising and framing both exhibitions.
