This is one of Martin McGing’s portraits which did so well in the Maurice Ashwin Trophy for prints last week. The winner was actually another portrait of his called Pippa. The trophy is one of two portrait awards we make the second being the Howard Edwards Trophy which is for prints. The Howard Edwards winner was Peter Robinson whose picture was shown last week..
Next Thursday (20 April) is our AGM and Awards Evening. We always welcome visitors and this week is no exception but be prepared for a lot of goings on which only mean things to us! We can find time to talk to you about the club though,
