With great sadness we have received the news that Francis Smith has passed away. Francis set up and ran the Art Resource Centre at the Pump House where artists met weekly to paint and create. Their output has regularly brightened the Pump House and brought in new perspectives. Over the years, Francis became a friendly, supportive and much loved fixture of the Pump House and will be greatly missed by us all.
The family have asked for any donations to go to the Pump House in his memory – https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/Francis. There will also be an exhibition of his work and remembrance event at the Pump House when we are able to have events again.
