From Carolyn Yates
Annan – an open book. On 2nd November, from 2.00pm to 5.00pm at Annan
Athletic's Club everyone is invited to join artists Hugh Bryden,
Katie Anderson and Vivien Jones to draw, write, craft, fold,
photograph and sculpt. This is all about creating responses to living
in and around Annan. We want to start to a new project celebrating
Annan’s cultural and historical legacy and we want to find out what
you want.. Fun and laughter guaranteed. This is a FREE drop-in event.
If you would like to know more, contact Carolyn Yates, literature
development, Dumfries and Galloway by e mail: Carolyn@literaturedevelopment.org
