Judging of the Print Competition

Members braved the rain to venture out to find out what Roy Thomas, our judge for the evening, thought of our prints. There were 38 print entries from 9 club members for Roy to critique.

Roy choose the following: Prints scoring 18: The Great spotted Woodpecker, Coloured Jumble by John Evans Red Kite in Flight by Allan Evans Prints scoring 19: Contrasts in Nature by Mavis Evans First light Barry Jones Floating among the clouds by Mavis Evans Prints scoring 20: Spies like us by Allan Harris Wi

In a short space of time the farmers' markets, which were social places where farmers could meet up and discuss the livestock which was being auctioned, have mostly disappeared due to modern technology. Roy considered this a very sad situation of modern times.
