The society’s last exhibition took place in November last year where it had a “great turnout”.

A spokesperson said: “For the first time we trialled a new initiative where visitors were able to vote for their favourite picture.

“It was lovely that so many of you took part and it was great to know which pictures people liked the most.

“People were heard to be saying ‘can we only choose one?’ or I want to choose more!’ and ‘there are too many beautiful pieces of art to choose from’.

“Fortunately, there was one outstanding winner ‘Border Collie’ by our member Gail which was voted the people's choice this year. Biggest congratulations!

“The new voting system was a success as it made people really stop and take the time to look at each piece of work.
