Thank You!

We'd like to say a HUGE thank you to all volunteers who helped out at Artists and Makers 2013 and made it such a great event.
So, to all you lovely people who helped to deliver leaflets, worked on the door, helped out in the cafe, helped in the children's creative area, baked delicious cakes or helped to clear up after the event - thank you!!

Thanks also to all visitors and shoppers who came along today. Your kindness has helped to raise funds to support creativity at Western Road School, and in 2013  Artists and Makers are pleased to contribute to the very worthy playground appeal.
