“I was delighted to be asked to judge the CCA Annual Art & Photographic competition again this year. There were a record number of entries and the standard was extremely high. “The Lift the Cloud Big Blanket Project” stood out to me.
The big blanket is a wonderfully, bright, and eye catching piece of crocheted art. It meets the brief - The Road to Recovery- perfectly. It’s fantastic that as the group collaborate together on the blanket, they assist each other in their recoveries. It reflects that recovery is an ongoing process, the blanket grows as the group members continue on their journey of recovery. I hope this fantastic community project continues to grow and grow.”

The Healing Power of Trees - Westonbirt Arboretum
“This powerful image came highly commended because the photograph and accompanying blog really told the story of this artist’s personal “Road to Recovery”. I love the stillness of the image, for that moment - peace and escape, and we can “see the light” through the branches of the trees.”
