NAYCC were approached again by Shelagh McFarlane on behalf of the Neville Parade Art Club to see if we would host an exhibition of their work. NAYCC are honoured to be asked again. The exhibition opened on Tuesday 24th July 2018 and will run until Friday 31st August.

The Neville Parade Art Club meet at the Methodist Church every Wednesday from 1pm until 3pm. They charge a small fee of £2 per session and this also gets you a cup of tea and a biscuit. They have come together as friends in a social gathering as well as to work on their art. There are specialist amateurs in every medium of art, from sketching to oils. The group means more than mere art, it is also a group that meet for companionship. The go on outings once a year with the next one planned for 6th September 2017 where they will be visiting York.

For more information about the club please contact Shelagh via email on
