At the end of 2015 the society was asked by Jane Harvey from Shortstown Heritage if any artists would be willing to paint pictures to be reproduced on notelets. The notelets would be sold to help raise funds to celebrate the 2017 Centenary year of the founding of the town. All the profits from the sales will be put towards the new stone village entrance sign for Shortstown.
Three artists (Gill Clinch, Laurie Holyoak and Jean Patterson) produced several pictures and four were chosen. We were pleased to be able to contribute towards a worthwhile cause.
The notelets are in packs of four, one of each picture, and can be purchased for £2.99 a pack.
