Dan spends much of his time visiting local groups and attending community events when he is in Suffolk, and it was a pleasure for him to support the Cotton Art Show at St Andrews Church over the Spring Bank Holiday. The annual event is organised by Alan Couldridge and the Friends of Cotton Church, and features exhibits by a number of local artists, sculptors, ceramicists, printmakers and photographers.
The Friends of Cotton Church is a charity that was set up by local villagers in 1995 with the aim of raising money towards the upkeep and preservation of St Andrews Church.

Dan enjoyed chatting to local residents and viewing the items on display, and he would like to thank Alan Couldridge along with Judith Hamp and all of those who helped to set up such an excellent exhibition.

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
