HOW O U SE This winter at The Gibberd Gallery we are delighted
E G REEN H to exhibit the work of Gatehouse Arts, a collective of
O U SE Essex-based artists. It is a celebration of a successful
Independent co-educational regeneration project for Harlow where a disused
day school and nursery building has been brought back to life with the
for 2 - 11 year olds purpose of providing affordable space for creative
artists.
Each of these artists are from very different
backgrounds and at various stages of their career
development; they create work in their studios at
Gatehouse Arts in Harlow. Each artist works in a
wide range of media and applications, developed
through their individual discipline. This diversity
provides a rich resource of artistic skill and creativity
which has been channelled into a number of
collaborative events.
‘Drawn from Essex’ affords an eclectic mix of works
from the traditional to the contemporary, including
paintings, installations, sculpture and photography.

given by Terry Waite, who became SSE’s patron, Jamie
Oliver, Will Self and the Kaiser Chiefs.
The judges noted the pledge by all three political parties
ahead of the last election to oppose a second runway at
Stansted. BAA formally withdrew its second runway ap-
plication in May 2010 after the first policy announcement
by the coalition government opposed the Stansted plans.
SSE’s campaign was also singled out for special mention
by Tim Minchin, who performed the cabaret at the
awards ceremony.
“This latest award is a tribute not just to the specialists
who led our public affairs blitz against BAA but to the
unswerving support of our army of community volunteers
whose opposition to BAA’s ambitions simply could not
be ignored,” said SSE’s campaign director Carol Barbone

you can. Avoid the temptation to take a minicab on the

illegal for minicabs to take passengers who have not pre-
