Another great afternoon in the Glendower Hotel with Mayor of Fylde Cllr Cheryl Little and Deputy Mayor Cllr Peter Anthony and their Consorts Mr Paul Little and Mr Paul Lomax seen here with Margaret Race, Chair of the Friends of the Lytham St Annes Art Collection and Vice-Chair, Barbara Weston.

We arranged the event to celebrate our purchase of Excelsior, a huge painting by Richard Ansdell, that had been on loan to Lytham Hall for the last 18 yrs but was due to be removed from the Hall by the owner to be sent for auction at Sothebys.

The painting will now remain on view in Lytham Hall for all to see.
