So, there I was fully snuggled up against the cold with my husband, step daughter and dog happily wandering along the trail with our question sheet seeking out all the star sculptures in their winter garden.   All the sculptures have been made by artists working across the South.  As well as finding the stars there is a telescope to peek into, a chance to make your own star or star mobile and complete the shooting stars trail that builds into a map of Orion, plus the opportunity of warming up with a glass of winter punch.

I was interested to read during the trail that artist, Bev Newman worked with The Headway Craft group from Southampton, who are all recovering from head injuries.  Together they have made a big star mobile by using techniques such as knitting, embroidery, crochet, toy cars and drawings.  All these reflected each child's personal journey back to health and how each of them have reached for the stars as they have recovered.

My supervising Partner, Claire Howard works closely with Headway.  She is an executive committee member of Headway Branch, Isle of Wight and as a firm we are on their Solicitors List of Brain injury specialist law firms.  All their efforts were very inspiring and certainly put my husbands attempts at making a star, also known as a flower!, to shame!
