At the entrance to the Hall, the easel shown below, left, displayed Mark Haworth-Booth's Poem #savemanningspit - please follow links. This poem won third prize in our Poetry Competition and we used it to demonstrate the links between the various themes of our exhibition.

Mark's Poem

Mark is regularly seen on the Green Party Stall at the Green Man Festival, and we were pleased that he found the time to come inside to view the Displays. As we always point out, we are non-political, and proud of the fact that we have support from all the local political parties.
