Alok Sharma, MP supports OHOS and the Keep

Alok Sharma MP, artist Jenny Kiehn, and OHOS Chair Ingrid Jensen
OHOS is delighted to be visited by Mr Alok Sharma, MP for Reading West.  Mr Sharma was given a guided tour of the Keep, including the artist's studios and gallery spaces, plus some of the more hidden areas.  He was very interested in tha artists' work and the history of the Keep and its associated heritage, and enjoyed seeing the Giant Hand made by artist Jon Lockhart for Handstellation - part of Whitley Arts Festival.  Mr Sharma's support for OHOS's campaign to restore the Keep is much appreciated, and he has already helped publicise it by writing a post on his website (click here to read more), and by organising a BBC radio interview for OHOS's Chair.
