[The inscription below it reads: “CARE IN THE COMMUNITY. This mosaic has been kindly donated by The Watch Project, directed by Richard Langford (Artist). November 2016.”]
The WATCH project has made a number of Mosaics over the years and you can find your eyes drawn to them at places like the Chard Guildhall, Bracken House, and Holly Court in Yeovil. If you’ve been following the website for a while, you may remember we were working on a fourth designed to celebrate ‘Care in the Community,’ with Crewkerne Sculptor, Richard Langford too. (You can find progress posts here and here.)
Well, I’m pleased to report that it is finally pinned to the wall at Chard Hospital!
Hospital administrator, Gillian Wallace, had this to say about it on the Chard and Ilminster website:
“We are pleased to be building strong alliances between the hospital and townsfolk, and would like to take this opportunity to develop these further, by inviting people to join our team as volunteers, LOF committee members or nurses and therapists to apply to join us in a professional capacity, so that together we can continue to deliver the excellent compassionate services into the future.”
You can read more about her thoughts in a press release for the Chard and Ilminster here, but for now, we would like to thank Gillian, Richard Langford, our members, the public, and anyone else involved in the production of this mosaic (from it’s whiteboard conception, to it’s glossy finish).
I know we have a tendency to thank everyone a lot when it comes to your support, but when it comes to our gratitude, there are no diminishing returns. Thank you all so much! It really is appreciated.
I hope you like it as much as we enjoyed making it.
