The Mayor chose her favourite artwork, a piece entitled “Beach Walk” by Iain Hope, an artist who regularly teaches his craft at Avant at his watercolour taster sessions and courses.

The Mayor, introduced by Mr Tom Brayshaw Farington Art Group’s Chairman, congratulated all those who participated for the overall exceptionally high standard of their work.

The Mayor has been invited back on 25 August to judge the locally baked cakes at Avant’s Cake Festival, with John Whaite the BBC’s Great British Bake Off champion 2012.
