I’ve got so much exciting news I’m going to have to write it all in one big blurb! Firstly, I am so thrilled to be working again with the remarkable duo Fran and Nick Brennan, the Beano cartoonists from CartoonFun, on a new project featuring the Parcel Pets (who also were also, incidentally, part of a National award winning project delivered during lockdown in partnership with the Penlee Cluster. We were recognised for all the work we had done to help communities during this difficult time and were praised for our “Outstanding creativity.” We even got driven up to London from Cornwall in a black cab to receive our prize in Westminster!)
I will soon be working with the wonderful Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership on a community rail project that aims to help reduce loneliness and that has been funded by the Department for Transport and Devon County Council and I’m delighted also that another project on the trains – Birds on the Branchline – has been funded by GWR to explore and celebrate the heritage of song birds and their habitat on the St Ives Bay line. I’ll be delivering this project in partnership with Artconnexion and there are lots of ways for the public to get involved. find out more on the Birds on the Branch page on this website .
