Save Bathampton Meadows

I was delighted to be one among many artists who were asked to donate a piece of their work for an auction to raise money in aid of the Save Bathampton Meadows Appeal.

Viewing of submitted works was on 15th & 16th June and the auction took place at 7.30 that day at Green Park Brasserie. I submitted a painted stoneware wall piece titled ‘Sky Door 2’, which sold for £220. In total the sale raised £9,500.

This money will be put aside for legal expenses to oppose a

massively insensitive and mindless council decision to turn a historically treasured local area of natural beauty into a car park for 1300 cars.

The recent election of Wera Hobhouse, Liberal Democrat MP for Bath, should bring some much needed sanity to the table in any future debate about the well being and future safety of the meadows.
