The skate park at Bexhill leisure centre, now earmarked for demolition, has an incredibly passionate and vibrant community of riders and skaters. The skate park is in desperate need of renovation – several accidents and near misses due to the state of the ramps and concrete occurred during the shooting of these photos. And with … Continue reading Bexhill Skate Park Community Campaign
The satellite dish. That reliable, omnipresent parabolic residential appendage, facilitating technology for the rise of satellite television in the late 70s, and modern day delivery medium for Murdoch’s media empire. On a short impromptu photowalk in somewhat economically deprived Bexhill-on-Sea my lens inadvertently captured a huge range of the rusted concave devices, their cables trailing … Continue reading The Dish

Today we were sad to have to watch as the wonderful cultural and community hub of Battersea Arts Centre was ravaged by a violent blaze. Initial reports at the scene were that nobody was injured. Here’s hoping that the centre can rebuild quickly. Continue reading Battersea Arts Centre Blaze

The company has impressed us with its quality of produce and variety of recipes, with its customer service and reliability.
