21 April

Tuesday is portrait day at Broadstone Art Society so we have been sharing a photo to paint from. This week I supplied a photo I took some years ago in Swanage. I am afraid I don’t remember his name but he is a Coast Watch volunteer. Coast Watch are a charity who took over the old coastguard lookouts when the MCA decided the coastguard no longer needed look outs or boats and cut the budget accordingly. They do an excellent job but it sad that the government rely on charities such as Coast Watch and the RNLI to supply safety cover on the coast when almost every other country has those facilities provided by the taxpayer. Rant over!
