County Park Painters is a small group of amateur artists who meet each Thursday morning in the Meeting Room at the Loggerheads Country Park.

The room is quite small and so numbers are restricted to a maximum of 12 artists. When a space becomes available new members are always welcomed.

Artwork is produced using different media and covers a wide range of topics. Finished works are exhibited in Loggerheads Country Park and in the Druid Inn, Llanferres. Proceeds from the sale of paintings are used to support a range of local and national charities.
