Bedford and Milton Keynes Waterway Park Commission

I was recently commissioned by Bedford Borough Council to produce a print advertising their plans for a Bedford and Milton Keynes Waterway Park.

The Brief was to capture a canal within our lovely countryside with people enjoying being outdoors doing a variety of activities:

I believe the council will be using it is as advertisement and may also be producing it for retail. It will  be available on my website in A3 and A4 formats from 10th August.

Kite Festival, Kiosk at the Park’s 3rd Birthday and the WIND!

Wow! What a lovely way to spend a Saturday.

We started off having a delicious breakfast at the Pavilion and checking up on the exhibition and restocking. Then headed down to the Kiosk to set up the stall for the afternoon.

What a buzzing fab atmosphere! The kite festival looked great, there were boat races going on and the kiosk was 3 years old!

The wind was a bit challenging! but everything survived unmarked! (just about!)

Thankyou to everyone who popped down, said hello, enjoyed the cake and fizz, tweeted and bought a print.

Bedford – you rule!

5 Reasons to Visit the Seven Sisters Country Park, Sussex this bank holiday weekend!

Having grown up in Sussex I have often visited the Seven Sisters from a young age. Here are my top 5 reasons to visit the Seven Sisters country park this bank holiday weekend:

  1. Free geography lesson! My siblings and I ALL visited the country park whilst at school to learn from its varied landscape; the meandering Cuckmere river and see what you can find on the shore in the shallow rock pools. Fun for the kids and educational!
  2. Push yourself physically and try the coastal path walk from Lewes to Eastbourne. I did this route when I was training to climb Kilimanjaro. A solid 26 miles, it’s a tough one. A full day with many hills! Tough work but the views are spectacular! IMG_5993
  3. Choose your mode of transport; you don’t just have to walk around the country park! There are options at the park entrance to hire bikes or canoes! This also includes an easy access flat path to the sea, suitable for buggies and wheel chairs! Everyone can enjoy this stunning place.
  4. There’s ALWAYS an ice cream van in the car park! After that lovely flat or hilly (you choose) walk treat yourself after to a cooling ice cream.
  5. With 280 hectares of land it’s a wildlife fanatics ideal spotting ground. Get those binoculars out and see what you can see!

For a lasting memory to so many happy times spent on these chalk cliffs I created this print for my parents.

Have a wonderful Bank Holiday weekend!
