Actually this photo makes it look all romantic, but it’s a lovely photo that Sarah O’Connell was kind enough to send me so I have used it. The reality has been rather messier:

The floods have not quite been at my doorstep, maybe a hundred yards away, maybe two hundred… so this is a cause somewhat close to home. Now the floods are receding, but after a couple of months or more under water, there is a lot of mess and damage to the land and peoples’ homes, and it all costs money. In an effort to help with the fund-raising I am donating a complete set of 12 etchings from this year’s calendar ‘A Medusa For All Seasons’. They are being sold individually.  These original prints exist in only very small numbers and I usually retail them for £75 each, so if you fancy one GET A BID IN! you may get a bargain… though I hope they raise as much money as they can of course!

The full list of goods and promises for auction can be seen here: http://www.somersetcf.org.uk/index.php?page=flood-relief-auction-at-othery. Bids can be taken by email and in writing (full details below). Proxy bids must arrive no later than noon on March 20th.
