Barnaby thanks to all staff artists

A HUGE thank you to all the artists who contributed to the Barnaby Art Festival at the weekend.  Despite the rain on Friday there were plenty of admiring visitors to view some stunning photographs, weaving and paintings.  In all, there were 62 pieces on view to the public but these are now back in the Library after a most successful exhibition.

As you can imagine, secure space here is limited so as pieces are now available for collection – please call in the staff library reception to claim your works.

There will be a further report on this item when the photographs are available.



Don’t forget Barnaby

The Barnaby Festival 2012 is almost upon us!

Carole Keeling from the Staff Library has been very busy this week cataloging all the fantastic art pieces due for display at Waters Green Medical Centre.  She has been inundated with canvasses large and small, covering all sorts of themes from flowers to modern abstracts.  At the last count there were over 60 pieces created by our obviously very talented East Cheshire Trust staff.

To see what’s on during the festival please visit  – you’re sure to be impressed.
