Holiday Cards

We were thrilled to have lots of beautiful entries to our Holiday Card Competition. Local artist, teacher and mother Rachel Barbaresi had a big job trying to select the winning entries and enjoyed looking through them all. All of the entries were lovely, and it was clear that the children and adults had put a lot of time and effort into their designs. It was very hard to choose! We are delighted to announce that Edward Horwell age 6, shown below, is the winner of the children's category with his winter landscape. Patrick Garfjeld Roberts is the winner of the adult category with his lino-cut of a polar bear. Both received an OBS water bottle and 10 cards!
