Exhibition of work by Amy Goodman

This will be a splendid opportunity to see examples of the work of Amy Goodman who is the rising young sculptor who is designing our war horse statue for the War Memorial Park.
Ranvilles Farm was in the heart of Romsey Remount Depot, and its land was taken over by the military throughout the First World War for the Depot, so this is a very appropriate place to have this exhibition.
