BEAT was amazing this year and we had lots of visitors who clearly enjoyed the whole art trail. There were so many different venues and artists to visit and there was a tremendous buzz in the whole area. It was also very encouraging to see so many families getting involved and our dog particularly enjoyed hoovering up the cake crumbs after the little ones had moved on.
I was delighted with the response to my new work and also with the sale of two large bowls in aid of the Teenage Cancer Research Trust which raised £400 for the charity.
I am planning a couple of events later in the year and further details will follow. In the meantime , I would like to thank all those who attended our BEAT open days and thank them for their support and enthusiasm.
