Winter Warmers 2014-15 at All Saints

All Saints had a full house for Martin Andrew’s lecture on Rena Gardiner this Thursday. Over half the people came from outside the village including some of Rena’s friends and former pupils. Martin gave us a wonderful insight into her remarkable career accompanied by beautiful artwork and insightful photographs. Julian Frances, co-author of the book “Rena Gardiner Artist and Printmaker ” also attended, bringing some lovely cards of her work. We also have three different cards newly printed: they can be seen in the church should anybody wish to order any.

It is extraordinary that none of us really knew what a talented artist we had living amongst us.

With the money from Thursday evening, combined with that taken at the last three Winter Warmers, a net profit of £642.01 has been raised for the church heating. Thank you all very much indeed for your support.
