Report on Sculpture Trails

Recently 11 Portland members plus some family members were joined by 8 Hamilton U3A members for a walk around Portland Sculpture Exhibition Trail.

All present agreed that many of the sculptures were of an extremely high standard.

It was pointed out the role played by Brandon, the grandson of Secretary Julie. Brandon was one of the few students who did the elaborate welding as a part of the community collaboration “Landsea” sculptural fence in the Living Laneway next to Julia Street Creative Space.

The Hamilton members were also impressed with the main shopping centre as well as the meal at the Macs Hotel.

Overall it was a very good public relations exercise promoting Portland as well as our U3A.
