Some feedback from visitors

Stepped into a kaleidoscope of colourful images. Artwork of children fits well with that of adults and evokes memories of days gone by. Reminds me we need to embrace the future but not let go of what we value from the past. – Cllr Peter O’Neill

Another very good and well presented exhibition. Excellent work by all involved.

I think your exhibits are beautifully displayed. The range of ideas is excellent. The idea of putting adult groups together with children is really good and exciting. I am here by chance – I’m from Barnsley.

Impressive exhibition. Lovely creative work.

Loved the exhibition – why hide it away? Can’t it or parts of it be shown in other public places? Supermarkets,surgeries, careers… – Marie Sutton, Australia

Overwhelming admiration for all the time and effort by all involved.

Wow. Nearly missed this great show. Mind-blowing displays yet simple ideas. Well done to everyone.
