Hall Bower Art Group

Little ditty by Fred Raine:

The Hall Bower Art Group was formed some years ago

To provide a place for local people to go

To share the joy of painting

A joy we hope never ends

But what is more important

It allows us to make friends

 

The Art Group runs every two weeks until 18th June 2019 when it finishes for the summer break. People are welcome to come along, enjoy painting, and meet like minded people.
