Our Programme of Events for Summer 2020 has been badly affected by the Corona Virus. Most of the planned Events have been cancelled. Check out the up to date position by clicking in to the Events Page.
Jane Chandler, a local amateur artist has been very busy over lockdown and has painted dozens of pictures.
She enjoys working with different mediums and in different styles - so some are watercolour landscapes of Dorset, Scotland, Belgium and even Thailand which she visited just before the first lockdown.
Others are what she calls her “Wonky Pictures”in wonderful bright colours using Inktense paints and there are also a few pastel doggie portraits.
She is now selling them to help raise money for the new Clock House in Greenhill Gardens. These paintings, which are all originals, are very reasonably priced at £45 and of that £25 goes to the project.
They will be on display in the Bennett Shelter every Sunday afternoon, unless it is raining, so do come along and have a browse.
