Colour Blocking Art Activity

Download these documents by artist Becca Baddeley by clicking the links and print them off to participate in our Covid affected art group activities. Or you could create your own piece to colour block rather than printing them off.


We are starting an exciting new Project -The Land Girls

Beginning when the Women's Land Army restarted in 1939, we will seek out reminiscences; these may come from those who, as local country children, encountered the Land Girls, or descendants of Land Girls who settled in the area. This research will generate podcasts and inspire creative activity (writing, art, photography) for an exhibition and booklet.NLHF logo

end of the year. Andy is currently looking at other possible premises.
How we proceed with in-person activities, either at Bank House

participants. Expect a questionnaire from Andy very shortly.
