A delightful and chatty lunch with the Hosking Houses Trustees at Sarah Hosking’s enchanting cottage. From left to right in the picture are: Professor Louise Campbell, the wonderful Sarah Hosking herself, Dr Sara Lunt, Andrew Holtom (the musical IT specialist), Pat Willson (book-keeper) and Reverend Dr Paul Edmundson. We were joined by Daisy the dog as well, of course. Although she looks singularly uninterested. Daisy is finely tuned to rabbit chasing and stick catching, not listening to the literary musings of the Trustees – but I had a really lovely time and was made welcome by all!
THE HOSKING HOUSES TRUSTI acknowledge the Hosking Houses Trust for this residency from 27th June to 15th July 2016 supporting Research and Development of a new Musical I am working on.
