VALLEY ART GROUP  The group had great fun in November, firstly working with pastel chalks during one session and then at the next meeting having a go at drawing with charcoal, both mediums having been popular with artists down through the ages. At the first meeting in December we are going to be printmaking once again at the group’s request. If you practise an art or craft you are welcome to join us. There is only a minimal charge payable on the day to cover the cost of the hall,  so you are welcome to drop in to any of the sessions. All levels of experience welcome. Please contact Loraine 743577 or email:
