Things are moving on quite nicely in our new Unit 1 home. The new exterior colour is going on and the rewiring, plumbing and maintenance jobs are all coming along well. No fixed date yet for our grand opening, but we will keep you posted!
This is the space we are going to be building into our beautiful new gallery / workshop and we can’t wait for everyone to see it. Very exciting indeed!
We are already getting busy with artists bringing in their artwork to be turned into personalised Christmas cards, so why not pop in to have a chat about how you could make your Christmas message that little bit more special.
There have been many opinions expressed about the new living wall in the town centre, but we think it looks good, will attract visitors and, most importantly for our traffic congestion problems, reduces the co2 levels in the air.
Now… if you pick up a copy of Serena’s book ‘A Serene View of Bradford on Avon’ (copies available at SerenArts Gallery or on this website!), you will see that she was well ahead of her time when it comes to town planning. However, her idea of a living wall went considerably further than the new feature in Bradford on Avon…
It was another first yesterday at SerenArts Gallery… carbon fibre decal for a mobility scooter!
As part of their service, TopSteer Mobility offer to add self adhesive, carbon fibre decals to the front and rear of their scooters, to protect against damage to the paintwork. They tasked us with tracing, scanning and cutting out sets of the decals to fit the areas that take most of the bumps…
It took a joint effort from Serena and her artistic eye and me at the computer, digitally creating the templates. Just another thing to add to our list of services at SerenArts!
If you are interested in discovering more about the range of scooters, powerchairs and stairlifts available at TopSteer Mobility you can contact them via their website or phone 07758 720059.
Work has started on the repainting at the Tithebarn Workshops. This time we have decided to all go for a different colour on each unit! We have gone for a beautiful blue and Mary has gone for a lovely dusky pink. Keep an eye out for who goes for what colour!
There’s always plenty to do and see around the Tithebarn Workshops… the units are open… the cafes are ready to go… the paddle board hire firms are setting up… the sun is shining… so why not come on down and soak up the atmosphere?

We had a cracking night out yesterday as guests of the President of Larkhall Athletic FC, Steve Hall, to watch their midweek game against relegation threatened Mangotsfield United. The only negative was the result with the Larks going down 0-2 to the Mangos. It was a valiant effort by a depleted Larkhall team that was reduced to 10 men after a harsh refereeing decision. However, the welcome and hospitality shown by the club was amazing and we had a thoroughly good evening at what has to be the most picturesque football ground I have ever been to.
As match sponsors our advert was in the program, along with a really nice welcome message: “Joining Steve will be Mike Pugh and his wife Serena from SerenArts. SerenArts also sponsor Larkhall, having both a pitch side advertising board and a match day programme advert. Mike and Serena run SerenArts Gallery and gift shop next to the Tithe Barn in Bradford on Avon. In addition, Mike also offers design, printing and computer services”.
If you look very closely you can see our hoarding on the far side of this goal mouth action.
Good luck to the Larks for the remainder of the season and thank you again for a great evening.
