Headley Venture Group arranged a trip to Borough Market in London on 10 August 2018. Transport was provided by Candy tours in the form of a mini-bus, and 10 members and a friend came along. It is a bustling part of London, and the quiet atmosphere of Southwark Cathedral next door made a calming contrast.
This year we held our biennial exhibition in St Luke’s church rooms. Several visitors expressed an interest in joining after seeing the prints displayed on our boards. Thanks go to Brian Thomas for organising it, and to the helpers who put up the boards, hung the prints and organised publicity and refreshments.
Visitors voted for their favourite print. The winners were
First – Chinese Fuchsia by Jim Henson ARPS
Second equal – Rush Hour by Andy Mayson
– Fritillaries meet by Mike Young ARPS
