We are pleased to announce that the Winter Programme will commence at the;-

The Riverside Centre
Trafalgar Room
2pm Tuesday 12th October

We shall resume all the usual activities and will be punctuating the first half of the programme up until Christmas, with Talks, Demonstrations, and a Christmas Quiz. (see Winter Programme for details).

Zooming has become a very useful asset to us recently and we hope to be able to stream the Portrait painting and Demonstrations to those unable to attend in person. More information to follow.

Covid precautions will still be in place at the Riverside in accordance with regulations, with social distancing. Masks will be required when moving around the room but the wearing of masks when seated and socially distanced will be up to the individual. Of course, it may be necessary to review this policy if Government Guidelines change. There will be no teas / coffees at present.


The long postponed AGM will take place as part of the regular sessions on Tuesday 16th November 2021 at the Riverside at 2pm.
Looking forward to seeing you all again.
