Outdoor Painting

Well this year outdoor painting is finished.

It was a glorious summer for painting! And we had several new locations which were both challenging and interesting. Scald End Farm at Thurleigh had lovely views over the countryside and paintable buildings, plus a large café (which most of us had not known existed). We were also shown the inside of Thurleigh church. Hitchin Lavender Fields saw us hiding from the sun painting the 'sample' fields and later having an excellent lunch in the barn. Lavender in bloom is a wonderful sight. But the signs in English and Japanese surprised us...Japanese apparently come here to get married! Milton Ernest Care Home was a huge manor with interesting and old outbuildings. Elstow with Moot Hall and the Abbey were very popular and Great Barford never disappoints. Tucked-away Eaton Socon with its mill as always delights.

This year has finished but next year, please come and join us - no need to book, bring your stuff, a chair, a hat and some water to drink.

There is no charge - just join us and enjoy a pub lunch later if you want. Call Laurie 01234 341228 for more details if required.

Come next spring hopefully Laurie will come up with another great programme. If you have any local suggestions I'm sure he would welcome the ideas, bearing in mind parking and of course somewhere to have lunch.
