A fabulous new artwork has just been installed at Wantage Community Hospital to launch a new partnership project with Oxford Health Charity, Vale and Downland Museum and Vale of White Horse District Council.

Stitching Wantage 2016 is a textile sampler that was created by volunteers who took part in a project run by the Vale & Downland Museum to capture the Wantage townscape in stitch. The design and creation of the sampler was led by local artist Anne Griffiths and funded by Vale of White Horse District Council and the Tanner Trust. 

The 2.5m long artwork has been loaned to Wantage Community Hospital from the Museum as part of a larger project 'Remembering Wantage Community Hospital' which has also seen the launch of postcards for the public to fill out and send in with any photographs or memories they have of the hospital.

The memories and ephemera sent in will inform a new artwork for the hospital later in the year.

If you would like to get involved please see below for details or pick up a postcard from the museum or at the hospital reception.
