Spring Exhibition

At the Management Committee meeting yesterday we took the difficult decision to cancel the Spring Exhibition.  We hope that this is only a postponement until the autumn.  I know the amount of effort that all of you who have entered have already put into your work and, from the plans that I have seen this promised to be one of the best Spring Exhibitions ever which I hope will be on display then! Thank you for all your support!
