GUISELEY Art Club will raise money for the town’s In Bloom group when it stages an exhibition next month.

A proportion of sales will be donated to Guiseley in Bloom when the event is held at the Methodist church on Oxford Road.

The exhibition, which will feature refreshments, crafts, tombola and paintings, will take place from 10.30am to 4pm on Saturday, November 2 and from 12 noon to 4pm on Sunday, November 3. Entrance and parking are both free.

Carol Warneford, from the art club said: “This year we are happy to be supporting Guiseley In Bloom a local group of volunteers who are responsible for the beautiful planters and beds to be seen around Guiseley. They recently planted up the flower bed by the new entrance to Airebourgh Leisure Centre.

“The art club will be donating 15 per cent of painting sales to this group. Hopefully people will come along and help us to make a good donation possible.”

The event will be officially opened at 12 noon by Guiseley in Bloom Chairman Jonathan Fountain.

Guiseley Art Club was set up in 2000 by Joan Hobson. It meets on Mondays at 1.30am to 4.00pm at The Methodist Church Hall, Orchard Way.

Guiseley in Bloom was formed in 1999 by Shirley Hughes-Rowlands. It currently has around two dozen active members and welcomes volunteers.
