People from near and far flocked to Warcop’s fifth annual Art & Craft Exhibition over the Bank Holiday weekend. Visitors were treated to a fantastic range of arts and crafts produced by local artists and craftspeople.
New this year was an impressive letterpress machine demonstrated by Charles Blackett-Ord. George Bennett’s hobby of making walking sticks also interested visitors. As well as a full display of local arts and crafts, all pupils from Warcop C of E Primary School exhibited a piece of their work. Visitors were asked to vote for their favourite piece by an adult and a child. Refreshments were, as ever, delicious and highly popular, as were the workshops and demonstrations.
David Keetley, organiser, said “The exhibition was really successful with many visitors and excellent sales for those who sold their work. After a 3-year gap, it was great to be back and I’d like to express my thanks to the many volunteers who helped to make the event run so smoothly.” The exhibition raised over £2000 which will go to support the running costs of the Parish Hall.
I’m pleased to announce that the cinema will restart on Thursday 17 February and I hope you will be able to make it. Here are the details of all the films that will be screened this season:
