Sound System

The Society now has an effective sound system,

which has been in use for several months,

and has been found to be a great help to

everyone who formerly had problems hearing the speaker.

This was obtained through a grant from the Big Lottery Fund, for which we are grateful.


Congratulations Fred!

Fred Ambrose has a painting hanging in Ongar Library.


When Ongar Library was built in 1993, Fred had a

chat with the builder, and took some photographs and sketches of the scaffolding and heaps of bricks, and was in fact given a brick so as to get the right colour.

Fred painted a picture, and they were pleased when he kindly donated it to them.

This week it has been hung in Ongar Library, and it will get a mention in the Ongar News.

Next time you visit Ongar, take time to go into the library and see Fred's painting.

Once through the doors, look at the wall on the left above the staff room door.

Last meeting: October 8th. Colin Steed

gave a watercolour demonstration entitled:

How to Make a Cottage Door Shine With Sunlight.


Members' Gallery

their work online.

All you need to do is email a photograph of your artwork to me,

and I will do the rest.

You will not be able to send your picture via the contacts page, but you can contact me that way, and I will give you the address to send it to. Or you can speak to me at a meeting.

It is a great way to display our work to the public.
