Art & Cross-Stitch Competitions


Our annual coffee morning will take place on Tuesday, 17 March 2020 in the Main Hall of Cleckheaton Town Hall from 10am – 12noon.

As usual there will be a competition to pick an artwork picture and a cross-stitch picture – the winners will be included on the cover of the prospectus for 2020-2021.

The entry forms for the two categories are now available in the Town Hall – in the pockets by the noticeboard on the first floor.

All members are eligible – you do not have to belong to an art class or  a cross-stitch class to take part.

Stephen Barlow

It is with great sadness that we heard of the death of Stephen Barlow earlier this week.

When he retired in 2015 he had been a tutor for Watercolours for twenty years and also for Spanish for five of these.

His amusing painting of members eager to get to enrolment at the Town Hall was featured on the back cover of the prospectus for 2010-2011. – see below.
