Number 8 volunteers attended a ceremony on Friday 4 November to receive The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. The award was presented by the Vice Lord Lieutenant of Worcestershire, The Hon Lady Morrison and was accepted by long-time volunteer Eileen Perry on behalf of all Number 8 volunteers.
Exhibiting at Number 8
Number 8 has a continuing programme of art and craft exhibitions displayed in the gallery space and craft cases within the busy coffee bar/gallery area.
It is the aim of the Number 8 to promote high quality semi-professional and professional visual art work and crafts from within and beyond the county of Worcestershire. The exhibition spaces also provide the local amateur visual arts and crafts community with an opportunity to exhibit and sell their work in a vibrant art centre setting.
