“We hold biennial exhibitions and have been working towards this event for over 18 months. “This year we have decided on a theme for the Exhibition and Fair which is ‘The Sea’. “We thought the theme quite fitting for our area.

“Just wait until you see the table decorations, wall hangings, quilts, scarves, hats and feature lampstand that members have produced, in relation to the sea theme, leading up to our event”, she said.
