Congratulations to all.
This year the exhibition includes a special memorial wall that honours the outstanding talents of three members of Bury Art Society who have sadly passed away since our last exhibition in 2019. Wright Platt, Derek White, and Phil Jones were kind, compassionate, and very loyal, long-standing members of the society. They were all hard-working members of the committee and had made significant contributions over the years to make the society the success it is today. They will be so sadly missed by everyone.
