IF YOU make or create things and have a connection with Thornhill then you could be just the person whose talents are being sought.
Thornhill Church wants to celebrate the works of local people in an exhibition which it plans to hold in September as part of Heritage Open Weekend.
“We know that Thornhill people are hugely talented and we know of painters, craftworkers, embroiderers, photographers, woodcarvers, wood workers, quilters, flower arrangers and many others,” said a church spokesman.
“Let us make this an occasion to celebrate these gifts and skills.”
The church aims to hold an exhibition on September 13 and 14, opening on the Saturday between 10am and 4pm and between 11am and 4pm on the Sunday.
It would like contributions from anyone who was born, went to school, works or lives in Thornhill.
There will be no charge for space or entry and contributors would be able to sell their items if they wish – the church would take a 10% donation. The exhibition is aimed solely at local people or those with local connections and a craft or artistic talent to share. It is not for dealers.
If you are interested, please get in touch via email@example.com or by post to Brian Pearson 66 Henley Avenue, Thornhill.
You’ll need to give your name, address, telephone number, an e mail address and details of the work you would like to exhibit and the space you might need – table or display panel.
