An opportunity for you to exhibit:

Two OVAS members [Sue Williams and Chris Poole] have now taken advantage of a wonderful new initiative in Sidmouth, the new Samaritans Gallery [in the Samaritans charity shop on the High Street, formerly the NatWest Bank]. It is open Tue-Sat 10-4. 25% of any sales goes to The Samaritans.
This is in large part the initiative of Sidmouth-based artist Anna Brewster  and local artist Ali Witchell. To give an idea, Chris's display is HERE .
If interested in displaying, please contact Ali at
