Many, many thanks to the collaboration of artists who exhibit at the Hillview Studio, Linwood (near Ringwood) for their extremely generous donation of £440 for the Trust to use on the Blashford Lakes Nature Reserve.
For the last few years, at least three, but I think it may be four or even more(!), the artists exhibiting at the Hillview summer open studio event (this year featuring owner Angela Perrett, Roslyn Cunningham, Jeanie Robinson, Judith Warbey, Wright 2 Weld and our very own Geoff Knott) have donated takings from the sale of refreshments to the nature reserve.
It has always been very welcome, but this year was quite exceptional (so thanks also to anyone who visited the Studio and contributed to what is a considerable sum).

The next open studio event is in November! For more information see the flyer here.
