The club has 150 members. Most paint themselves, others have an interest in art. Members pay just £20.00 per year (January to December), for which they may attend all the meetings and may also exhibit at the annual exhibition.
Members may borrow DVDs and a selection of books.
Except in special circumstances, members are required to attend a minimum of 4 meetings per year.
Members are encouraged to help in the running of the club.

The meetings usually feature a demonstration by a professional artist. The programme of speakers is carefully planned to ensure a wide variety of subjects, styles and media. For details of this year’s programme, click on Monthly Meetings above.
The demonstrations are video recorded and shown instantaneously onto a large screen TV. A radio microphone is used and the hall has a loop system to assist those with hearing aids. The use of a new boom camera system enables better close ups with minimal intrusion from the camera operator. With the permission of the demonstrator, the recordings are usually subsequently edited onto DVDs
which may be borrowed by members.
The interval tea break enables members and visitors to socialise and chat with the demonstrator.
Visitors are always welcome for £3.00 per visit.
