Art Pull in Woods Restaurant

Having got the Art Pull Gallery established in Camden Road, Mark Paul Perry has now set up with Woods restaurant in the Pantiles to display work each month, and jolly good it looks too in the grand setting that is Woods.

I was on my way to Trinity “Arts Centre”… it seems incorrect … Continue reading

Search Press (Books for sale!)

World Record Breaking Bunting

I doubt there are few British towns who have a planned ‘industrial estate’, with many just having large units on their outskirts, possibly where Victorian industries were based, or built on former farm land.
