Auction helps gallery

Over £2,000 has been generated by an auction in Romsey.


Kind-hearted local artists and craftspeople provided over 50 donations ranging from paintings to ceramics, jewellery and workshop tuition in order to raise funds for Rum’s Eg, the community interest company, in Bell Street.


The venture, which operates as a gallery with more than 20 volunteers, has lost valuable trade since Bell Street was closed for road works last September.


“We are so thankful to all the supportive local residents who bought most of the work,” says organiser and Rum’s Eg manager Rebecca Maddox (pictured). “It has certainly helped to plug a gap but of course we need to do much more.”


There are plans to convert space within the building into studio workshops available to hire for an attractive price on a monthly basis.


“These spaces are going to be 10ft x 10ft and the hire charge will include wi-fi and all bills,” says Rebecca.
