I joined the BVAF Committee a little after moving to Shrewsbury in 2018 as a way to get involved in the amazing community arts event and to get to know people.  I used to teach art, but love anything that allows me to be creative and spending time in my garden

Treasurer and general volunteer
I joined the committee because I love the way it uses creativity to bring a community together. Although I’m not very creative myself, I appreciate anyone who is, and I am always amazed by talent on show in Belle Vue

I help with school liaison, our pub quiz, and other bits and bobs where I can. I'm an audio engineer and composer working from my garden studio in Belle Vue on pre-school TV shows.

Art Exhibition Organiser
I love creativity in all of its forms, especially when it brings people of all ages together.  I particularly enjoy drawing, painting, singing and the theatre

With a long-standing career in Early Years, I love the opportunity the festival gives us all to flex those creative muscles as a community. 
I am very proud to organise the Art and Scarecrow Trail, which has always been one of my favourite parts to our ever-growing festival.
