The Committee and Members of the ASV express their sincere sympathy to Gillian Govan for the loss of her lifelong friend and husband on 23 April 2010. The following beautiful little poem was read at the funeral service:
God grant me the serenity,
To accept things I cannot change:
The courage to change the things I can;
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Website enquiry from John French landscape design, 30 April 2010
I have a client in an apartment complex. The complex is over 4 levels, and the missing palm tree in the garden has left quite an empty space. It was quite a poor piece of landscaping, and over time, the palm tree and plants perished, and the bark garden area became quite unattractive.
I have suggested a sculpture or water feature (probably in the $5000-$10000 cost bracket). I don’t want anything too formal but it needs to be a wow. I would have thought something around 2 meters high would be an appropriate scale.
Can you forward this on to your members & they may have something that would suit.
If I can get your email or members that are interested I will email you
My best regards John French firstname.lastname@example.org
Website enquiry for sculpture project at Box Hill School 21 April 2010
We are looking for a sculptor to restore a large outdoor sculpture of a Wyvern, the school emblem at Kingswood College in Box Hill, Victoria.
The sculpture was crafted 20 years ago. The sculptor who originally created the piece now lives in Northern Territory and is unable to assist but can provide any information we need on how it went together.
Are you able to recommend a sculptor who we can commission to perform the restoration works? If you need further details before replying, please let me know. If you can give me an email address I can send through some photos.
Thanks for your help!
