More News from the exhibition

We had a good day at Westminster today with plenty of visitors both new to cp and old friends. Two people signed up as new members so welcome to them. The 'Have a Go' area had its busiest day yet and Elizabeth Frearson was on hand to give plenty of good advice (some of it related to cp).

I have now received some photos of the Private View (many thanks to Alan Watters) and a small sample are below.

Latest from the Exhibition

Hi, Liz Ridley here posting from London as Alan has kindly let me 'guest blog' direct from the exhibition to give you the latest news and urge you to come along before we close at the end of Saturday, 1st October.

We have had a steady stream of visitors and being in a tourist area we have seen people from many different countries. As usual all visitors are impressed by what can be achieved by using coloured pencil.

The challenge has been getting people into the building and we had a poster campaign and as you can see from the photo below, Pat has gone beyond the call of duty as usual.

I'll be back tomorrow with more reports and photos of the actual exhibition.

AGM Reminder!

Just a note to remind UKCPS members of the Annual General Meeting being held at Methodist Central Hall, Westminster, London, SW1H 9NH, at 14.30 on the forthcoming Saturday, 1st October 2011.

If you have read your latest edition of 'Talking Point' (and if you haven't, then you should've 'cos there are some lovely articles in it!) you will be aware that there are some important issues to discuss and make decisions upon.

The AGM will be an excellent oportunity to meet fellow members, and is a good chance to put faces to the members of your Executive Committee, or to people you may have read about on the UKCPs Forum or website.

I myself have been given the day off DIY duties by 'her indoors' so that I can attend, and I look forward to meeting everyone.

The UKCPS exhibtion is now up and running, and, if like me, you have not been able to attend so far, then you might want to follow this link to the UKCPS site to view the winning pictures:, and then follow the other links on that page to view all the entrants.

There are some really wonderful pictures to view - congratulations to all the winners (and a special vote of thanks to Pat Heffer who worked so hard to put it all together!).
