It looks certain that both Riversdale and Sheringdale schools will be involved. Because of Ruth Padel’s Darwin connection and Tracy Chevalier’s fossil connection it seemed appropriate to commisiion some art work on the theme of beasts of Southfields- now and long ago. Ammonites once swam in the sea above where we now live, much later hippos bathed in the Thames and now we have a surprising amount of wildlife in a very circumscribed area. Stag beetles , parakeets, swifts and peregrine falcons . Not to forget the brown trout and the damsel flies.
