Sadly we have lost Richard Broderick our Chair who we thank for several years of tremendous support. We have also lost Nancy Doyle from the board. They have both been loyal supporters since the very beginning and continue to support us as very special talented volunteers.


Nancy Doyle is helping us with fund raising. We are very excited and grateful to announce that she has chosen PASA for funding by Virgin to help pay our overheads of  this website and book-keeping. We are now in receipt of this vital support from Virgin money. This is is vital prime the pump funding and so helpful and encouraging, at this early stage of our development.


Richard  Broderick has donated three fine pieces of garden ceramics for our art auction planned for the  spring (details  pending).


This auction creates an opportunity for artists to help PASA  by donating a work of art to help fund a stand against the insect crisis through education and environmental action.  We have also been donated a poster by David Tremlett  which is very exciting and it will have a tremendous ceramic  section. Early days but we are already confident that that it is a good idea and will soon have an exhibition of artworks on this website.
