2004  Runner Up Heritage Inspiration Award


Three hundred people gathered on the common to celebrate the Common and draw its open spaces, woodland, historic buildings or each other.  Gazebos offered shelter. A ‘how to begin’ leaflet gave ideas for family activities. The Church and pub invited participants to draw in the warm, making rubbings of brasses and gravestones in the former and a mural of nearby Victorian houses in the latter.  Schools publicized the event, the Residents Association and businesses gave paper, card and even waterproof bags to sit on.  Artists and students provided inspiration and the Library exhibited the results.
