An egg hopper, a top hat and a tent

preview_tophat Thank you to all of you that made it to the OSR Project Space yesterday, what a great evening. Alongside those that travelled from Plymouth, Exeter, the Blackdown Hills, Gloucestershire, Bristol, Bath, London and lots of places in between, we had one of the largest turn outs from West Coker and the surrounding areas since we opened our doors in 2011. Thank you. You can see some photos of the evening here

Here we are


We thought after nearly four years of exhibitions and events it was about time that we let you know where we are. Thanks John Burton Signs and Designs on Iron (East Coker)

Look what landed with us today! We are really excited about our first OSR Projects newspaper and will be giving away free copies this Friday at the Weather Station preview. Hope you can make it.
