Art in the Park Event 2017

This years’ Art in the Park event in Leek took place over the weekend of Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 May. As in previous years, the Society had a stand at this event hosted principally by Eric England, but he asked for any Society members who could volunteer to spare the time and support him in promoting the Society. In the past Jean Byatt and Philip Proudlove have helped with this event, this year Philip added his contribution. The show, as usual, brought in many local residents and considering the Society was not selling products as other stalls we had a lot of interest and many leaflets were taken. Edward Mckensie and Jean and John Byatt turned up over the weekend to offer their support and on the back of this appearance, both Eric and Philip were invited to showcase their work and help promote the Society at Endon Well Dressing the following Bank Holiday weekend.
