Sketching location this week
This week (15th Sept) were set to visit the Raystede Animal Centre, The Broyle, Ringmer, East Sussex, BN8 5AJ on the B2192. Entrance cost is by donation. It will be a great chance to look around and sketch the animals and birds. We will meet up at 2pm as usual but there is an excellent tea shop where you could have lunch beforehand or tea when we finish painting. This all depends on the weather of course but the forecast so far is looking reasonable, otherwise you can go to the Downs LC as usual. As we only have 2 more outdoor sessions this summer do make it if you can.
I can arrange lifts if needed.
£400 raised for RNLI
Some of you were able to come to Newhaven Lifeboat Station last Saturday, when we handed over the £400 raised for them at our exhibition, from the sales of the Artist Trading Cards you made for our tombola. They were really popular with visitors even more so when we explained we were raising funds for the RNLI.
Well done to the makers and the sellers for a tremendous amounted raised. Many thanks as well to the Newhaven Crew for giving us a tour of the Lifeboat – and I got to sit in the coxswain’s chair!
I believe I have paid everyone their money from sold pictures and cards at the exhibition, if you haven’t heard from me do shout. Anne
