    A new decade & the house is still saved!

    Since "The Painted House" was last saved from repossession in March 2009, there have been many more ups and downs, difficulties, challenges, hopes and successes. Unfortunately, during August 2009 the house briefly became at risk of repossession once again - but after some difficult decisions, Steve Williams chose to keep on fighting for the house and moved a lodger into the spare room. Currently, Steve can just about afford to keep up mortgage repayments by himself. The story of saving the Painted House from reposession can be read in the blog posts below, and more information will be coming soon about the documentary film that followed the campaign to save the house. Thanks again for everyone's support last year :-)

    Things are also looking hopeful for Steve's artwork. Despite having experienced some recent health difficulties, Steve has kept up with his painting and has been working on a number of new canvas paintings.

    An exhibition of his work is being organised to take place in Stoke-on-Trent in the near future - so watch this space!
