Hayley’s Magpies Triumph
Mercia Marina joined with Willington Arts’ Festival in April 2012 and invited artists to submit their impressions of the Marina and its wildlife. There were many wonderful and creative pieces – photographs, painting, ceramics and needlepoint. Judging was done by public voting at the Exhibition. Hayley Powell, one of the Mercia Moorers and Artist and Blacksmith working from Claymills Victorian Pumping Station (http://www.foreverforged.co.uk/) was the overall winner with her wonderful Magpies …. and they posed long enough for a photograph for the Wildlife website!
