Happy New Year from Bridging Arts

This isn't a New Year's photo - but a lovely festive picture of Christmas at the Royal Naval Auxiliary Hospital in Truro a 100 years ago. This emergency hospital was set up in the old work house on Tregolls Road in Truro to cope with the wounded and injured from World War One.
Everyone has made such an effort to create a cheering atmosphere - despite the circumstances - in the very best spirit of Christmas.

A very Happy New Year and thanks to everyone who helped, volunteered and worked on our projects over the past year.

Our World War One exhibition Heart of Conflict is at the Royal Cornwall Museum until the end of June 2017 - so plenty of time to go and see that.
Also in Cornwall - Max Whetter's winning deck design is on sale now at Roots Skate Store, A perfect present for a keen skater.
In London -we'll be working in January with elderly people in Hammersmith and visiting the V&A to see a special embroidery exhibition.
And.....we'll announce the winner of our competition for an African Headwrap! Here's to 2017.
