2016 Eileen Savill Award winners

For the first time this year the Award was sponsored through our partnership with Vitacress.  The Award and First Prize went to 17 year old Hannah Farrant for her skillful landscape painting of a view over the new RSPB reserve at Medmerry. Once again local wood carver and MWHG member Peter Warren provided the Award, a carving of a robin with its head tucked under its wing.  Prizes were also awarded in the 5-7 and 8-11 age groups.  They went to Matilda Rey-Barriero, Mia Chung, Ruby Bensley, Elizabeth Broadbridge, Bethany Middleton and Sofia Casali for artwork depicting their observation of nature.  The ceremony took place at the Selsey Centre, watched by the families of the prize winners and members of MWHG, with all the winning artwork on display.  Presentations were made by Leah Mathias-Collins, Conservation Officer of Vitacress.
