Aslackby Art Show

Thanks to everyone who came to the Dementia Support Aslackby Art exhibition and shared in the harvest festival activities and worship, not to mention the scrumptious lunch, the auction of produce and afternoon tea.

The art show was a huge success on so many levels. Here are some of the comments from visitors:

“Very impressive exhibition and so wonderful to see such a diverse collection of art forms”

“What a warm welcome and a brilliant idea”

“Beautiful paintings and quilts, wish I was half as clever”.

We are very proud to have been part of such an inspirational event.
