The Society Committee recently reviewed the possibilities for the operation of events over the coming monthsand regrettably things don’t look too great !Currently we are unable to hold meetings in our usual Winslow venue and we are advised that unless government guidance changes in the near future, we may be looking at 2021 before we can use the Bowls Club House for demonstration meetings and painting groups.The Society had an established booking for the Public Hall in Winslow to hold our usual November Exhibition ( Oct 31st Nov 1st 2020 ), but that has had to be cancelled as it would not be possible to mount an exhibition and provide stewards, and also meet the maximum 6 persons rule in the hall. There would just not be the ability to let people in and walk around.In place of this we are intending to mount an on-line exhibition using this website and pictures will be displayed - for sale - from November 1st 2020. Fuller details will be given on the exhibitions page here in the next few days as arrangements are agreed.We held our Annual General Meeting in September and that was an on-line one in common with many similar organisations this yearThe Society has a full Committee and officers will continue into next year, and while the Society is unable to operate fully, Subscriptions will be at a reduced rate for the coming year.The Society is solvent and once the limitations on meetings and meeting places is relaxed, there is no reason why the Society shouldnot return to its normal programme of social painting groups, demonstrations and workshops and at that time the committee will make recommendations to members about future subscriptions if neccesary. In the meantime, this page will be regularly updated to keep all our members and friends up to date on anything happening in our art worldPeter Weatherill
