Our new ART EXHIBITION from 1st November is by local artist Meryl Lovatt

I didn’t start painting until about 10 years ago – retirement is a wonderful thing. I have painted in acrylics, oils, on silk and with watercolour. It is just good to “try something new every decade of one’s life” according to Dame Joan Bakewell. None of the paintings on exhibition are on sale on this occasion, but I will have a go at painting most things if asked.
