"I want to thank everyone for a very successful Summer Exhibition. In the context of our present times everyone has made a great contribution and I feel we should all be proud of what has been achieved.

In particular the Committee Members, many new to their role, have put in a great deal of time and effort to mount the exhibition and perform the many tasks needed. The consensus seems to be that the quality of art work was really very good this year."
