A charity art exhibition went on show in Three Rivers on Tuesday night.

Images of China, India, South America and Europe were interwoven with pictures of the Three Rivers at the official launch of Les Mead’s charity photography exhibition at Watersmeet.

The show will raise funds for the Three Rivers Museum and Watford Peace Hospice and marks the final project for last year’s council chairman, Councillor Mead.

Chris Lloyd, the new chairman of Three Rivers launched the display in the Artistsmeet gallery with sponsors Trend and Thomas and Active Air.

Active Air’s Jeff Simon said: “It’s a really impressive collection of Les’ term in office.  Les has caught many special moments during his term as well as from his travels in other parts of the world.”

Belinda-Jane Hetherington from Trend and Thomas said: “A photographic exhibition in honour of Les' Chairmanship could not be more fitting and perfectly honours the man and his accomplishments while giving us, the locals, a chance to see some terrific images along with beautiful snapshots of the things he got up to during his year.

“We were honoured to be involved as photography is so important to our industry but mostly because Les and the Council deserve our support for all their super efforts.”

The pictures in the exhibition were taken by Les Mead, Carol Mead, Sue Lacey and Victor Shack and are now on sale for a £50 donation each.

The exhibition is free and open during normal Watersmeet opening hours, Monday to Friday, between 10am and 4pm. It runs until 29 August.
All the proceeds from the picture sales will go to charity.
