.Christmas Party and Donation Evening

Our Art Group Christmas Party evening was held on the 13th December in 2016. This was attended by most members and was a lovely opportunity to have a relaxing evening before our Christmas break. This is also the evening that we invite representatives from the charities we have supported during 2016 to come along to meet our members and receive their cheques. We collect donations at every exhibition and also contribute some of our commission money - and this goes to support local charities.

 

In 2016 we gave out £1,600 to six local charities - and below are some photos from the evening.

Father Chris receiving his cheque for £1,000 from Wendy Lindsey - and this will go towards work on the tower
A cheque for £200 to help support the work of BLUGs (Barncoose Limb User Group)
£100 to support Padstow's Little Theatre - presented by Debbie Henshaw

Padstow Memorial Hall receiving a cheque for £100 from Peter Henshaw
Julia Prior handing over a cheque for £100 to help support the Padstow Christmas Lights fund

And finally - a lovely spread of food brought in by all members

Art Group Christmas Meal

We always have our Christmas Meal after Christmas as we find most of our artists and partners can make it then - plus its always nice to have something to look forward to in January!! For the last few years we have enjoyed the hospitality of Pescadou in Padstow, and here are a few photos from this year's meal.

Our Chairman Derek and Wendy his wife and our Treasurer - Derek is enjoying himself - he just never smiles in photos!!
Some of our artists and their partners enjoying the meal.
And even though Christms has past - Santa has left us a few gifts.

 

 

Padstow Art Group has now finished its exhibition season for 2015, but you can always see some examples of our artists works on this site under 'View our Paintings'.

 

Many thanks to all of you who have visited us this year, and particularly those who have bought paintings or donated some money to help local charities. We'll be posting some pictures from our Chritmas party next month and you can see who the money has gone to.

 

Visit us early next year when we will be posting the exhibition timetable for 2016.
