TAS, as an organisation, seeks to encourage young people in the Arts and each year we at Southport and Formby are involved in seeking out competitions for all ages of students in our area. We usually choose one or more competitions run by a school or college and award money prizes to students for the best work and give support to the organisers by providing a grant for equipment and artistic supplies to further their encouragement of the Arts.


Recently we were pleased to support the Young Arts competition at the annual Ainsdale Show and retiring Chairman, His Honour Stuart Fish, is seen presenting the overall winner's trophy to Lewis Jones, with Lewis's proud mum looking on.
