St Andrew’s Art Group held its 32nd exhibition at the parish hall in Station Road.

The fundraising total will be added to the £600 raised earlier 
in the year, meaning £2,000 will 
be split between St Andrew’s Church and Nailsea & District Leg Club.

Treasurer Jill Hobday said: “This result could not have been achieved without a huge amount of work on the part of the art group members and supporters, putting up and taking down the stands, making cakes, selling raffle tickets, and manning the exhibition among many other things.

“Our thanks to Dawn Cox and Alan Webb for their generosity in donating paintings for our raffle and everyone who supported us in any way.

“We couldn’t do it without you all.

“We are now planning for our 33rd exhibition at the end of July next year, please put a note in your diaries.”
