Nearly finished my paintings for the exhibition next week.
Incase you're wondering what's happening with the super awesome idea, there'll be a meeting on the 4th November. Get in touch if you'd like to come, and please let everyone know about it:
There will be a formal meeting (as promised!) on Wednesday the 4th November at 6.00 p.m. at Hoults Estate.
In the meeting we will cover where we're up to, the issues facing the project and also what needs to be done so we can move forward. We will look at what people feel they need from the space and how we can best address those needs.
Please let me know if you plan on attending as I will need an idea of numbers.
The meeting agenda will cover:
-Aims and needs
-How to proceed
If there is anything else you feel we should discuss please email me and I'll add it.
