30 November 2013: Plea to artists for help at Westmead Centre

The Westmead Centre is a day centre for adults with physical disabilities and\or sensory impairment. It is lucky enough to have an art studio equipped with art materials and a kiln. They are very keen to invite local artists to come to the centre to demonstrate their skills to their clients and perhaps even run a skills workshop. See here for details.
15 Nov 2011: Message from Sue Smith about Rosemarie de Goede

It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that Rosemarie de Goede died in the early hours of 10th November from a respiratory infection. She had been ill for a couple of weeks after an enjoyable week with Liz Seward at Dedham Hall.

What can I say? We all loved her didn’t we – she was such a joy and an inspiration. My house is full of her paintings and ponies, donkeys, cows etc. Chris described her as our matriarch. Our exhibitions will miss her flamboyant and vibrant paintings and we will all miss her tremendous personality and inspiring workshops.

Laurie Clarke told me how much she loved our society – it was mutual!

Webmaster's note: Rosemarie's funeral took place at 2.15pm. on Friday 25 November at Easthampstead Park Crematorium, South Road, Nine Mile Ride, Wokingham, Berks. RG40 3DW. Family flowers only, but donations to the NSPCC please.
