Mattick's Farm

We've been looking at sculpture this week and here's another one.

The restaurant is now a part of the Cordova Bay Golf Club complex and is a great place to eat whether you golf or not.

Sculpture Splash

I mentioned the Community Arts Council Sculpture Splash that was held on the weekend. It was really a terrific show with a large number of exquisite and professionally executed pieces displayed in the beautiful surroundings of Buxton Green. We'll have a look at some of the individual pieces over the next few days.
