Happy Staffie Rescue

They have a non-destruction policy and an active rehoming procedure.


Mary Herbert Paintings

A very talented lady and a pleasure to work with. Mary produces stunning pieces of art and really captures her subject - this picture is my Kea.

Quatt Farm Shop

Mark and Siobhan at Quatt Farm Shop Café Bridgnorth offer great value home cooked food, located on A442 just a mile from Dudmaston Hall.


Glass blowing, lampwork and fusing courses

Great courses - I've been for bead making and glassblowing so far. Knowledgable and friendly tutors and a relaxed (and safe) atmosphere


Heather Ogilvie Millinery

A very talented milliner based in Cirencester.

Heather's been a lover of hats (of all kinds!) from a very early age. Nevertheless, it was not until someone asked her, “and what would you have done had you not been a successful lawyer?” with the spontaneous response “I’d be a hat designer” that in 2002 the first course was booked followed by a City and Guilds qualification and in 2009, at her first attempt, she found herself a finalist in the Hat Designer of the Year competition, judged in Paris.

In 2017 Heather graduated from the Kensington & Chelsea college on their internationally renowned HNC course.

If anything, her passion has grown; she continues to love discussing and designing the “cherry on top” for clients’ forthcoming events,

Heather's studio can be found in picturesque Cirencester.
