THE SUMMER PAINTING COMPETITION in aid of Motor Neurone Disease held on August 17th at The Barn, Springbottom Lane proved a great success.The theme was 'Summer Pleasures' judged by Reg Haley. Veronica Johnstone won first prize and a silver cup inscribed with her name for her delightful depiction of artists in a garden. Second and third places were won by Carol Brown and Heather Humphrey who each received Marks and Spencers vouchers and two Highly Commended awards were made to Caroline Howard and Jennifer Burnett who received a travel set of watercolour pencils and sketching pencils. The competition was followed by tea and cakes in the garden. The event was well attended and 230 raised for MND. The competition will be an annual event and is open to all those who attend the Art Events workshops and courses. See 'About Us' page for details and pictures.
