Volunteering 
 
There are many essential ways to volunteer depending on your interests. For example, administration, fundraising, organising and attending events, public relations, art skills, educational experience, finance, legal and procurement. 
 
Working volunteers are always welcome and considerably contribute in the ongoing upkeep of the gallery. There are a great variety of tasks, no matter what your ability, both in art and helping to upkeep the property, keeping it in good condition for the community to enjoy. 
 
Please contact us if you’d like to volunteer. We can discuss what will be appropriate and enjoyable for you. Even an hour a week will make a difference and the ongoing sense of achievement as a contributor to this exciting gallery project will be a just reward, knowing the gallery will bring much enjoyment to many visitors and to the local community. 
2013 
Over the past 25 years the gallery has become a local amenity displaying and selling local works of art. Walter now feels the gallery lends itself not only to exhibit his paintings but now as a centre of well being offering a range of alternative therapies. In the past Walter was able to devote energy and new life into the gallery whereupon it was a thriving gallery turning over a large display of art and crafts and the coffeenook in the 80's was always busy running out of cups, plates etc whenever lots of people came in for coffees and cakes. It was in the year 2000 when Walter converted the coffeenook into just a gallery with it's windows borded up to make additional room to hang paintings. 
 
The gallery has undergone urgent repairs since then and is now open for Classes and Treatments as a centre for alternative therapies serving the local community.

New Changes to the gallery 
Article DATE 21st JUNE 2014 
 
Work started on updating the gallery in the middle of June 2013 when two sections of the ceiling in the craft hall had fallen down and needed to be repaired along with the ceiling in the ladies toilets, the outside of the property also needed to be rendered as parts of the wall had fallen into disrepair. The guttering also needed attention as damp was getting into the gallery. All this has now been repaired and complies with current regulations and fire safety. 
 
The craft hall has also undergone a lick of paint to brighten it up and make the space look clean, open and fresh as the craft hall is a beautiful part of the gallery with its architectural wooden ornate church beams giving the ceiling a magnificent feature. 
 
JUNE 2017 Update 
 
The next stage for the gallery to ensure it thrives into the next ten years is really important. We have decided to use the magnificent space the gallery has to offer for not only exhibiting Walters original paintings in the Main Gallery but to offer a centre for alternative therapies ranging from various gallery functions, art events and classes. These will be held next to the Main Gallery in the old Craft Hall and Stage Area which also has a beautiful Coffee Lounge area with Kitchen. We took down the boards that covered the windows in the Coffee Lounge revealing once again the green trees outside, this made the room a relaxing space and no longer giving it that claustrophobic feel, allowing the natural light to shine into the room.  
 
Summer 2017, A lot of extremely hard work had to take place to gradually get the kitchen operational again with new cooker, microwave, coffee machine, coffee grinder, and new dishwasher. It was a sense of achievement when we were awarded a five star hygiene rating.

NEW PLANS 
 
Hopefully we will be putting on all sorts of exciting functions, talks, music and art events, along with training classes on various subject themes, talks on astronomy and physics, to photography and life art classes, so we feel the future of the gallery looks promising for the local community to take part and enjoy.  
 
The gallery is now open Monday, Wednesday and Friday 11am to 2pm 
 
The New Intelligent Heating System is going to be fitted on 25th September 2017 
This will preserve the paintings from being cold and damp throughout the winter months, and the heating costs reduced from the old plug in heaters which were very expensive to run. 
 
NEW ROOF 
We will keep you updated with regards to when we fit a new roof on the gallery, the building then should be in good shape to venture into the next ten years providing the local community with a fabulous art gallery.
