Event organiser Clive Williams said he was delighted with the total number of paintings sold (40).

More than 100 children and parents also attended a school art competition in the Small Hall.

Besides the usual exhibition and sale, the children’s competition featured paintings on the theme of ‘Nature’ from Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils from Birch Copse, Englefield, Pangbourne and Whitchurch primary schools.

The club hosted a preview evening at the hall on Friday, April 19, opened by the High Sheriff of Berkshire, Alex Barfield.

And on the Sunday, a representative of the Reading-based Nature Nurture charity attended, which sponsored some of the prizes for the children’s competition.

The winners were presented with certificates and art vouchers and each school received a ‘nature’ pack.

The evening was sponsored by Green Parlour Florists and the club’s designated charity, Bridge for Young People, which attended the whole event.
