NEWS FROM THE BOX MOOR TRUST
From February 2017 Edition | Boxmoor Direct
Our inaugural art competition, launched in the autumn, has uncovered a rich seam of artistic talent in our community. Entrants have interpreted the Box Moor Trust theme in a range of imaginative ways,giving the judges a challenging task in selecting the winners. The competition was judged by Rod Bugg (Emeritus Professor of Sculpture at University of the Arts London) and Box Moor Trustee Dan Forder, who is a graphic designer.
Liz Warriner came second with her drawing of a Belted Galloway, an animal synonymous with the Trust. The judges felt that the drawing was technically very adept and that the use of tone, shading and contrast made the image stand out, giving it an almost 3D effect.
A chance to visit and explore this former watercress farm and learn more about its history and plans for its future. No need to book - just come along. Open days are held on the last Sunday of the month, between 11am and 2pm. There is no charge, although donations are welcome. Gadespring is located in Old Fishery Lane, HH.

Always a popular feature in the Trust’s calendar, our annual “Spring Lambs” walk will take place on Sunday 12th March at 11am. We will be visiting the pastures of Westbrook Hay as well as the livestock barn, where the ewes waiting to give birth are kept under close observation by the estate staff. There may even be an opportunity to bottle-feed some of the youngest lambs. There is a small charge of £5 per adult or £10 per family to attend.
