ON Wednesday April 27, Winsford residents attended the unveiling of the memorial seat for artist Ann Le Bas.

The seat was designed and made by an artisan blacksmith, a grandson of Alma Tunstall who lived for many years in Sunnymead, a house belonging to Ann.

The seat was unveiled by John Bray, who explained that Ann had been a well known artist, and print maker who lived for over 90 years in Winsford.

She was a generous benefactor to the village and Exmoor and was always keen to help with her knowledge and advice.

The design of the seat reflects Ann’s artistic life, her duty to the church, and her dedication to the cricket club.

Money raised from the bequest to the parish council of some of her limited edition prints paid for the memorial seat.
