Oasis Cafe in the Falkland Islands

February 23, 2017


Chertsey Artists members have helped contribute to the renovation of the The Oasis Cafe at RAF Mount Pleasant on the Falkland Islands. This is a facility for service personnel and is a CESSAC (Church of England Soldiers, Sailors, & Airmen’s Charity) Centre. A key driving force behind this project is Shannon Saise-Marshall who until fairly recently shared a studio at Chertsey Artists with her daughter Anabel. Military volunteers on site renovated the premises and Chertsey Artists members provided works of art to add to the ambiance. Fourteen works of art from our members now hang in the Oasis Cafe. Those members who contributed to this project were.

  • Nicky Browne
  • Pam Beck
  • Reeta Sarkar
  • Dodi Shariff
  • Meryl Somper
  • Ann Willson
