Wildlife Support & Conservation

The Villager

Ceramics and Art Exhibition: Rachel Hudson, a local wildlife artist, and I, exhibited our art and ceramics in Blackberry Lane, in late December. Unfortunately it was arranged at very short notice as November was an extremely busy month, so very little time to promote the event or distribute flyers, but attendance was good and we raised seventy pounds which will be used to help cover costs. We are presently self-funded, so many thanks to residents who came along and to several people who made a donation! ...

Bentworth Email Distribution Centre

The Villager

Without trying, I seem to have become the Bentworth email distribution centre. I keep two separate email lists of people who live in Bentworth; Bentworth and Neighbourhood Watch, although most people are on both. I try to keep email addresses private and do not intentionally pass on anyone’s email address without their permission. At the last count there were nearly 180 addresses on the lists. ...
