As well as our weekly meetings we occasionally meet up at weekends to do some plein air painting which included a visit to the Lady Lever Art Gallery at Port Sunlight.  We also have a group Christmas meal and a festive quiz in December which is a lovely and fun way to commence the festive celebrations
