Despite record-breaking temperatures on the coast today, we were delighted to welcome so many visitors to the last day of our annual exhibition and would like to thank the public for their interest, support and the votes for their favourite exhibit over the past four days, to our sponsors this year (without whom we could not run this annual event) – Cass Art, Brighton and Hove Radio Cabs, Donatello, Leaders, and Engleharts Solicitors, and also to John Hird and Jacqui Rance for organising the event over the last four days.
