Capability Brown Society AGM at Wimbledon Park Golf Club in Home Park Road Wimbledon SW19 7HR

11am on Saturday 30th November

Dear All

This is an update to our email sent to you on the 6th November, following the completion of our art exhibition which was held in the Bowls Pavilion on 16th and 17th November. The exhibition which was Curated by Capability Brown Society Trustee, Amelia Obertelli-Moriarty was supported by nine local schools in Merton and Wandsworth which contributed in all 220 works of art which were on display for the two days of the exhibition.

Visitors commented on the high standard of the works of art that were on display, some of which were “Hockneyesk” and displayed the Park in vivid colours. A photo album of the art will be available for viewing at the conclusion of the AGM on the 30th November at the Wimbledon Park Golf Club which is referred to in the Notice below.
