Conquest Art holds SHOW with VIP's!
"What a fantastic show", was the word on the streets of Formby this weekend.   Conquest Art (Formby) held a most interesting display of Art in its Open Day Exhibition at the Luncheon Club, Formby last Saturday (20th April).   The work produced by disabled artists in and around Formby, no matter how they painted, by mouth or by foot or by hand the work was of a stupendously high standard.   In addition to the series of paintings there was a tribute to Mr. Phil Jackman, the senior tutor, who is recovering from a mayor operation, and other items such as a copy of The Times dated 5th May 1798, and a Castrol wall chat of 1925 containing a fascinating list of cars and motor cycles current at that time.  The occasion was graced by the presence of the  Mayor  of Sefton, Councilor Anthony Hill and the Local Members of Parliament, Clare Curtis Thomas, and such prominent citizens as Mr. N.O.K. Gibbon (President of Conquest art Formby) Dr. and Mrs. Barbara Yorke M.B.E. and Mr. Alan Wright, President of the Rotary Club of Formby.

The chairman extends profound thanks to a splendid team of volunteer helpers and to all who kindly supported the event.
