Painting in Val’s Garden

This is a big thank you to Val, our very own Treasurer, for the invitation to spend a very pleasant evening in her garden painting.

Luckily, the rain that had arrived in waves in the afternoon had decided to stay away just in time for our evening that started at 6.00 p.m. Val and Rob had really worked very hard to make their garden look the best it possibly could for us and we were there in our droves to take advantage of it.

We all seemed to take a very slow wander around the many nooks and crannies that are to be found in this pretty garden and then one by one we either set ourselves down to draw or paint or a few just chatted along, laughter seemed to be plentiful too.

Val and Rob are lovely hosts and Val had gone to much trouble and made us lovely cakes to have with our teas and coffees, possibly not much painting went on after the cakes and teas came out as the chatting and laughter seemed to take over from many of us.

It was a delightful evening, thank you Val and Rob for inviting us into your lovely garden and for all your hospitality. Also we must not forget little Jake, he was so happy to see us all and so busy following us all.


Finally a big thank you to those who donated to the Club’s funds by contributing £11.00 for the teas etc.
