which were filmed in and around

'I've always felt passionately about the wildlife that surrounds us, as did Bob. We're very lucky here, there's such a diverse range of animals that we see everyday, including badgers, foxes, rabbits, woodpeckers, blue jays... In the future our hope is for the Foundation to be able to support the Essex Wildlife Trust in a very tangible way. Watch this space.' - S.W.
'Pam's work has a dublicity about it, often with contrasting colours and textures. Her work explores the materials she uses, with dramatic and surprising results.' - Su and Olivia Washington
