Snow Exhibition in the Scraptors Sculpture Garden

A little snow transforms the sculptures and creates a new exhibition. Too much snow just buries them. The exhibition only lasted the morning before starting to melt away.

Our Lunar Module on the move to promote Cranborne Chase Dark Night Skies

We made this Lunar Module for a one day event at Bemerton Heath, Salisbury as part of the Salisbury International Festival in May 2019. The Module commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Moon Lnnding., Serendipity struck  - one of the volunteers on duty that day was an an American Carl Cooke whose grandfather had worked on the project as a jig builder. Carl  is shown below posing by the module.

 Our module has a new purpose to promote for the Cranbone Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty their recognition of an area of Dark Night Skies, an area where one can see the stars most clearly because of the minimum of light pollution. After ten years of hard work and stringent tests the  area in north Dorset  became the 14th International Dark Sky Reserve in October 2019. We will be re-installing the Module on a site to be determined.
