Biennial Dinner – June 2018

Biennial Dinner – June 2018

Next year on Wednesday 13th June 2018, we shall be holding our biennial dinner at Walton Hall, near Wellesbourne.  Tickets will be on sale at our April/May/June meetings.

The grounds of the hotel, which include a large lake, are beautiful, and as the occasion is to take place in June rather than May, as usual, the lengthier summer evening should afford a longer time to enjoy the view.

Special Interest Day – Augustus and Gwen John – November 2017

Augustus and Gwen John – November 2017

On Friday 17th November 2017, we are hosting a Day of Special Interest at The Warwickshire Golf & Country Club, Leek Wootton, near Warwick CV35 7QT.

This will be given by Mrs Sandra Pollard, entitled “Augustus and Gwen John: the lives and works of two contrasting artistic siblings.”

It promises to be a real joy – strength and sensitivity – and tickets will be on sale at our September, October and November meetings.

Young 2017 –


Rosie TaylorAs previously mentioned, Rosie Taylor, a Year 13 ‘A’- level student (2016) from North Leamington School was a finalist in the ‘Make your Mark’ competition. This was organised by the West Midlands Area to coincide with the national AGM  which was held in Birmingham in May 2017.

All the work of the finalists was of a very high standard. We were therefore very pleased that Rosie was awarded 3rd prize.
