In order to open and print these large pdf files, you will need a pdf reader. There are several free readers available.
I use and recommend Foxit Reader.
Another good one is Nitro PDF Reader.

Decoration

We understand that hirers will wish to decorate the hall for functions, which is acceptable to the management committee: we can also offer our own team to assist in dressing, for a nominal charge. Should you undertake your own decoration, we ask that no Sellotape® or Blutack® is stuck to the emulsioned walls as this will affect the paint and plaster. There are many hooks provided around the main hall for decoration purposes.

Wall Hanging

Wall Hanging of Buildings in Hartlebury (approx 2m square, displayed in the Main Hall)

"This project was started about 2005. I took photographs of various buildings in Hartlebury, enlarged them to  A1 and then had a mirror image taken of each A1 enlargement.

In order to give the sky, grass and roads a 3D effect, I created material using shaving foam and blobs of acrylic paint. Each picture was built up using a lighting box, mirror image and Bondaweb in the normal appliqué quilting fashion. The shapes were ironed on to the background of calicos and top stitched into place by various matching stitches. To give a greater 3D effect and shadows, part of the materials were hand painted. The trees and bushes were created with confetti quilting which is when suitable material for vegetation is cut into tiny pieces, ironed onto the background, then free motion sewing is used to hold the leaves and branches in place.

When the nine pictures were completed, to limit the joining materials buckling, heavy duty interfacing was used to give a consistency between the pictures and the adjoining materials.

The whole project was finished in December 2017."
