What a lovely day we had in Barrow on Soar last Sunday.
The weather was kind and we managed to get a space with lots of steps, so perfect for displaying a few paintings. Peter brought his dog, Scrap, to help by modelling at the top of the steps, so many people came to see him as well as the paintings.
The market was very busy most of the day, people wandering about and enjoying the stalls, buying plants and cake from the WI. We had loads of interest in the Club, especially the Beverage Club painting session which is on alternate Mondays 12.30-2.30pm. People are always concerned as to whether they would be ‘good enough’ to join, we don’t mind how good you are, its great fun, you will improve, it doesn’t cost much and you will meet some lovely people as well, so please come and join us.
Peter handed out loads of leaflets whilst wandering around looking very ‘French’ in his stripy shirt, beret and red bandana, he even managed to sell a painting which was a bonus too!
It was a great way to promote the club and I am sure we have made some new friends, the next one will be the Heroes Day in Loughborough on August 2nd, if anyone would like to help out we would love to see you there.
