A sunny, fresh spring day at the beach front. Some lovely colour inside and a really interesting table for Exchange Day today. Good way to get rid of things we don’t need and exchange them with someone who does need them. The colours inside the club today were inspirational and so much talk about how to combine and improve colours.
