Spokeswoman Rosemary Hodge said: “Members are very grateful to Steve Hall, exhibition organiser, who master minded the weekend, members of the committee and the DLWP staff, especially Naomi Scully for her help with new signage and ensuring the venue was Covid secure. We missed our normal preview opening but hope life will be returning to normal by next year.

“A wonderful variety of work was displayed ranging from oils to acrylic, water colour, pastel and more unusual - woven pictures to collage scenes, together with cards and a display of crafts. The group is very grateful to Rother District Council for their very generous grant that enables them to stage the exhibition each year.

“A future one-day Crafts sale will be held on Saturday, November 6, again at the DLWP Studio.

“Many new membership application forms were handed out and it is hoped that workshops will resume in September with Portrait, Life Drawing and a varied program of other workshops. The group is always pleased to welcome new members of all abilities. Phone 01424 732891 or visit our website for more information.”
