Portmoak Flower and Art Festival.

Hello, This afternoon Stuart and I went along to visit our local Art and Flower Festival. This takes place every year in a village about 5 miles away.  The Church and Church Hall are at the centre of the activities the Church itself holds the Flower Festival which is very beautiful and I hope you enjoy the pictures I have taken today.  In the Church's side hall that they call the Quiet Room there is a exhibition of Photographs which was also very nice.  In the main hall is a exhibition of paintings by local professional and amateur artists (Stuart did not have any in this time) it was a great display of local talent there was also jewellery and hand made glass and pottery. After you have browsed to your hearts content the ladies of the guild serve cream teas lovely.  There is a rock concert on Sunday a golf tournament, a pub quiz, a jazz concert and lots of other things to do and see.  For a small village it is a super event. They have a thing in the evening called The Pudding Club at which the ladies of the church all make different puddings and trifles etc and you go along and taste as many as you wish, this is very popular as you can imagine.  I have never been to this event as it would be all to tempting for us.  Will have to go now and see what we are going to have for our tea.  Have a good evening Holby is on tonight, and its not a repeat hurrah.  Love,
