Painting Competition

Archie - Animal, vegetable and mineral
It was our AGM this month and after we'd got through the business in hand, it was time to enjoy ourselves by taking part in the Painting Competition, which is designed to take the stress out of the AGM!

Thirteen members took part and we were allowed to vote for three paintings which we liked. After a refreshment break and milling around the paintings, it was time to count the votes and announce the winners.

This year, Archie scooped 1st place with his painting "Animal, Vegetable and Mineral". New member Helen came second with a miniature painting of her kitten "Poppy". Lastly, two members shared third place, David with "Euphorbia" and me (Frank) with "Cow".

Everyone got at least one vote and the voting and social atmosphere soon banished any trace of the dullness of an AGM!

Helen - Poppy
