Some visitors also left some comments, which included:

‘Well laid out with a good mix of genres, difficult to pick a winner.’

‘So many to choose from all the experiences, an imaginative way of presenting the collection.’

‘Excellent exhibition, congratulations.’

Thanks go to Mike and Berenice for all of their hard work organising the exhibition, and also to all of the members who gave up some of their time at the exhibition talking to the visitors.
