Children’s Art Exhibition
We held a borough-wide art competition during the autumn. The contest was for primary school pupils and culminated in a grand exhibition on the 22nd and 23rd of November.
Trophies were awarded to the successful young artists and their schools by Ashley Jackson, who had generously judged the entries and also awarded an overall prize of his own. All entries were subsequently displayed at the Metodome and were visited by parents, pupils and local residents over the course of the weekend.
Pictures of all the entries are available to view on the Art Exhibition page.
This year the club presidency will be shared by two members – Trevor Smith and Payman Nayeri, seen above with the outgoing president, Ian Ireland. The handover took place on 3rd July at the Holiday Inn.
Philip Thompson Trophy
The trophy is awarded annually to the member who has made an outstanding contribution to the work of the club. This year’s recipient is Terry Sykes, seen above with president Ian Ireland.
