Snowdrops and art at Thorpe Market Church
St Margaret’s Church in Thorpe Market will be continuing its programme of community events this winter with a series of “Snowdrop Sundays” which will include art exhibitions.
The snowdrops attracted over 1200 visitors over four Sundays last year, breaking records for funds raised for the church’s upkeep. This year there will again be rotating exhibitions by local and visiting artists in the church, as well as stalls from local businesses. Home-made spread of cakes and refreshments will be available.
Margaret Hunter from St Margaret’s said “Our many volunteers come from outlying villages: Trunch, Southrepps, Northrepps as well as Thorpe Market. Without them none of our fund-raising efforts would be possible at the church, especially the homemade cakes that have been so much in demand that we produced our have own collection of recipes for sale. Last year we had live organ music and a ‘Cantamus’ singer serenading us with wonderful music from the pulpit. We hope to offer this again.”
Exhibiting artists for each Sunday will be as follows:
February 3: Stained glass craftsman and restorer Neil Forkes, right, of Forkes Stained Glass will display a selection of his work and have smaller items for sale.
February 10: Artist maker Julia Hilton and landscape painter Joanna Sheldon.
February 17: ‘Nine Photographers’ based at Wells: Andrew Barclay, Pauline Chapman, Annie Cowper Johnson, Cecilia Evans, Linda Gower, Janet Keymer, Rosie Ward and Mary Groombridge.
February 24: Gillian Eustace - paintings and prints, with selection of goods for sale.
The event will run from 12 noon to 4.30pm each Sunday in February.
