For 2002, we decided to expand the Arts Weekend. We successfully applied for an ‘Awards for All’ grant of £2,608 which covered the costs of hiring a marquee, transport, printing and security costs. As well as the CAE touring exhibition, we invited a group of local professional artists to put on a separate exhibition. On the Saturday evening, a concert was held in the church, performed by a local choir.
We attracted over 400 visitors over two days and made a surplus, which was shared with the church.
