RHS Judging Day 2014
(to see our results from the RHS Competition see 2014 Competition Success bottom left)
'Creation Community Art' from Pye Studios in Market Street joined us this year on Judging Day and brought along their exhibition to Celebrate Hindley sponsored by ADACTUS HOUSING.
The members had enjoyed doing this artwork to celebrate our town and were proud to show off its natural beauty spots, local amenities, wonderful people and of course, prize-winning station!
There is a small deer hidden in each painting - HIND (female deer) LEY (clearing in woodland)
what a credit they all are to HINDLEY.
Here are some of the beautiful paintings:
Celebrating Hard Work - a painting of our Station
Celebrating Volunteers - Joe one of our volunteers and his painting done by one of the Creation Art Group
Celebrating our Local Heritage
Celebrating our Ancient Woodlands
