To simplify the means of accepting payment for memberships, visitor contributions, trips etc. we have bought a Sum Up payment terminal. The terminal should be set up in time for our November talk and be available for you to renew your membership.

OCTOBER TALK: DR GILLIAN WHITE COMES TO THE RESCUE

October 26th: Due to illness our speaker Monica Bohm-Duchen was unable to give her planned talk this month.

Our thanks go to Dr Gillian White who was able at short to step in and give her talk on Henry VIII and The Field of the Cloth of Gold, to rescue the evening.

Hopefully Monica recovers quickly and we will be able to reschedule her talk for a future occasion.

A CHRISTMAS VISIT TO TYNTESFIELD DECEMBER 6TH 2022

Some members will notice that we have changed our Christmas visit venue. Tyntesfield, near Bristol, is a spectacular Victorian Gothic revival house, whose Christmas decorations are particularly striking.

We have decided to make our Christmas outing to here and a summer outing instead to Wells, where we will be able to enjoy WellsCathedral known as "the most poetic of the English cathedrals" and take advantage of the breath taking Bishop's Palace and gardens, enjoying the ambience in the more clement summer weather.

FIFTY TREASURES OF THE WEST MERCIA AREA - AVAILABLE NOW

The West Mercia Area of the Arts Society is large and diverse, including the Cotswolds, the cities of Worcester, Gloucester, Hereford, Cardiff, Brecon and St Davids, the West Wales Coast and the Malvern Hills.

The Fifty Treasures book concentrates on a selection of treasures that might not normally be found in conventional guides, all of which have been selected by the members of the various Arts Societies in the West Mercia Area.

Copies of the Fifty Treasures of the West Mercia Area, priced £5 will be on sale at our Talks meetings at the Cirencester Baptist Church.

Why not keep a copy in your car and next time you are exploring the West Mercia Area see if you can find the treasures in the book. Three of the treasures are in or near Cirencester!

Help us improve and grow our Society

We are constantly working to improve and grow our Society – this works particularly well when Members actively participate in the delivery of our activities. For each role, we are endeavouring to recruit at least two people. This gives extra support to the role holders, provides back-up for when one is on holiday and, importantly, increases ideas and creativity in our approach.


Any members interested in helping are asked to contact any of the committee members during a meeting, or by email.
