Meryl believes that the centre’s raffle prize which is up for grabs during the period of the exhibition is quite spectacular , it features “Luncheon of the Boating Party” by Nikki Waters [After Pierre-Auguste Renoir 1880-1881 – The Phillips Memorial Gallery].

Upon retiring Nikki returned to her first love, taking up painting again in 2003.

In Sept 2008 she was awarded a Diploma in Fine Arts with Distinction from London Art College, UK.
