As part of a series of community events planned for an extension to the church in St Andrew’s Witchford, a drawing workshop with Cary Outis was held in the church hall.

The participants enjoyed the morning and their feedback included ‘excellent tuition; he was very clear and inspiring.’ ‘After he had clearly described strategies I was amazed to see my second attempt looked like a real drawing.’

There was a sketchers’ competition as well. The 26 entries were displayed in the church and the winners were:
First prize a drawing of a horse by Tony Brown.
Second prize: Three entrants came second: two by Sue Thompson (flowers and a man relaxing on a sofa) and a drawing of two ladies sitting on a bench by Don Beards.


The first prize for the children’s section was the drawing of a kestrel by Harvey Stimpson. See above image.
£65.50 was made for the church extension funds.

The next event to look forward to is the ‘What we do Supper’ on Thursday 8th March (not the 15th March as previously advertised) when during a two-course meal, there will be a number of ten-minute talks by people introducing their businesses or charities. The evening starts at 7.30 p.m. If you would like tickets or to speak at the event, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
