A Royal Visitor

By Kelly Wright

Have ewe herd about our visitor? If you’ve passed our office or seen our Facebook page in the last week, you may have seen our colourful new resident.

Meet Sherfield. She’s part of a community art project called ‘The Queen’s Sheep’. Sherfield started out as a life-size wire sheep, before being sprayed blue and decorated in the colours of the Union Jack to commemorate the 90th birthday of The Queen.

The ewe-nique idea was developed by Basingstoke artist Louise Hight to reflect the fact that, until the 1970s, villagers had the right to graze animals on common land.

After completing her royal responsibilities, we’ve given Sherfield a new baaaa-se at our office.
