ed to be a part of the third Sandwich Arts Week in September. Seven prize winners were chosen from the Create Exhibition at the Sandwich Technology School and Sir Roger Manwood’s School. These remarkably talented students’ works were displayed at St Peters Church alongside professional artists. Finally, the students attended the SEDFAS  October meeting, where the Chair  Bishop Michael Turnbull presented them with their prize and a certificate. Several students and their families stayed on for the lecture on Eric Ravilious. It is hoped that there will be an ongoing relationship with both these schools, and that more students will  attend future lectures. The committee has introduced reduced fees to encourage young people to  join.

It is anticipated that our  relationship with the museum may grow over time.
