A big thank you to everyone who came along to our E17 Art Trail Afterglow Networking Event at The Mill, it was a lovely evening - reflecting on what happened this year, finding out what lies ahead for members of the network, and sampling the food and drink that was supplied by everyone.  Special thanks go out to Mo for her lovely Mill Punch, and to all the tasty offerings from H.A.M. Sandwich.

Thank you also to everyone who has taken the time to complete our survey and feedback.

We are still pawing over the survey results and working hard on future plans which we will share with you in the near future.  In the mean time - let's keep the momentum going.  It's been an amazing summer, and as you will see from the contributed stories below, it's going to be a sizzling winter!

Have a very festive and creative winter season,

From Laura, Morag, Cris and the Artillery Team.
