By 4.00pm today we had finished! Every last painting is out of the Albion store, and is now packed neatly into Dave's old studio in Haslingden. The system worked; Julian (see below) has a hat to eat for tea, and our friendly removal company did the job perfectly. What relief! Seeing the work at the store I did have some doubts, but in fact the 200 paintings fitted in with room to spare.
The move was accompanied by a live 9.00am broadcast from BBC Radio Lancashire; progress was recorded for TV by BBC Northwest News, and in the afternoon a photographer came from the Daily Mail.
