Exhibition in St Nicholas’ Church

Friday 28th - Saturday 29th July 2017

St Nicholas Church Exhibition, Country Fayre New Romney 2017

The Club held a display of members’ work to coincide with the New Romney Country Fayre. The display was held in the centre of New Romney in St Nicholas church, which traditionally provides light refreshments, lunches and various exhibitions not only on the day of the Fayre but also the day before.

This year the church has reported a bumper year, estimating from the numbers of lunches and cups of tea sold that about 450-500 Fayre-visitors crossed the threshold. Club secretary Paul Sanderson was in the church for some of the time and, although not monitoring the display constantly, still tallied about 100 people stopping to inspect the prints (as opposed to glancing at them as they passed by), so the actual number of visitors interested in the club’s display would have been far higher than that.

For the first time, the new club flyers and business cards advertising ourselves were on display and almost a whole dispenser’s contents had been taken by the end of the day, which is great news. Many thanks go to the club members who supplied the mounted prints that made the event such a success.

If anyone would like any flyers or cards to dispense themselves, please email the club secretary, Paul Sanderson.

Day Trip To Arundel

Arundel Castle by Paul Sanderson

Saturday 17th June 2017

On a beautiful Saturday morning, the club joined a coach trip to Arundel in West Sussex, famous principally for its castle and cathedral but also well-known for its independent shops, contemporary art galleries, restaurants, cafes and tourist-trap olde worlde ambience.

This was one of the hottest weekends of the year and the excursion ticket included the castle and gardens and the four-nation medieval tournament that was happening in the grounds that day. The enactment soldiers must have been very well-done by the end of the day!
