Great Spring Exhibition

The fine weather enabled us to introduce a little café culture with tables in front of the village hall and with all the delicious refreshments on offer this proved to be very popular.
This year’s winner of the Favourite Picture award as voted by the visiting public was Angela Thomas and the Best in Show award, as voted by members, was won by Lorraine Richardson.
The awards were presented by Hinckley and Bosworth Deputy Mayor, Jan Kirby. Congratulations to Angela and Lorraine and our thanks to Jan.

Successful Winter Exhibition

This year’s winter exhibition was a great success.
The weather was kind over the weekend and with some great artworks on display and delicious refreshments on offer both days were very busy.
Radio Leicester put us firmly on the map early Sunday morning with their ever popular ‘Clueless’programme. The first clue directed the team to Peckleton village hall where Jude, very professionally, live on air greeted our guests. The second clue was located behind Anne-Marie’s picture ‘Midnight Sunflowers’ and they were on their way.
Congratulations to Lenny Moule whose picture was voted the exhibition’s favourite.
With an increasingly diverse range of subjects and media this event is becoming more and more popular. Our thanks for all the support.
