Upper Clatford Resident Robert Brock - Property Artist
For some 20 years Robert has run a hobby business as a Property Artist, creating drawings and paintings of private houses, commercial developments and artist’s impressions for developers and planners. He ran the business down when he downsized and moved here to Upper Clatford but, having now fully retired, he is begininng to do more again.
Many people in the village live in a house or cottage that they love and might well like a picture of it on their wall. As he works from photographs, it is easy enough to arrange.
For the next 2 months Robert plans to give 100% of takings to support the nurses via ‘The Royal College of Nursing Foundation COVID-19 Support Fund’.
Details of his work can be seen on www.the-property-artist.co.uk (for artist impressions) www.badgers-heritage.co.uk (over 1500 ‘local’ scenes) and the attached photo is an example you might recognise.

DOORSTEP PHOTOGRAPHY FOR FOODBANK
Helen Jones, who lives in Anna Valley, has asked us to promote her doorstep photography fundraiser for Andover Foodbank? As she points out, lots of photographers around the country are involved in similar projects, offering free portraits at the doorstep for a donation.
She has promised that she can do this and keep within Government guidelines as she has a suitably powerful zoom lens to ensure social distancing and she does this as part of her daily exercise outing.
Helen has set up a fundraising page on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/donate/2735237473370816/?fundraiser_source=external_url) and she has asked if we could share this with all members of the COVID Community Support Group.
Reike Healing - Fiona Whitehead
Fiona is a Reiki healer based in the village. Every Wednesday at 4 p.m. she is offering FREE distance Reiki healing to those who may feel fear, over-whelmed, poorly or just in need of some spiritual relaxation time. It is perfect for those who are alone or are self-isolating as it only needs them to be in their own homes.
Fiona is offering this to members of the Upper Clkatfoird and Anna Valley community.
