Update – March 2017

I hope that you will be able to attend our next lecture on the 29th March when Douglas Skeggs will be talking to us about David Hockney, a very talented artist who has never stood still and who is also a draughtsman, photographer and stage designer. He turns 80 in July but is still working. Many of us will have seen his current exhibition at Tate Britain or are planning to see it before it closes on the 29th May and this lecture will, I am sure, enhance the experience. After our lecture, others may be tempted to visit it too!

Visitors to this lecture will be asked to make a donation in the usual way.

Interest has been expressed in taking over from Lesley as our Society’s secretary.  However as this has not yet been confirmed, if you are interested in finding out more about it, please contact Lesley or myself. As was mentioned at our recent coffee morning, being a member of the committee is an excellent way of meeting other members and previous secretarial experience is not essential.

Kind regards,

Felicity Furber (Chairman)
