Organisers say: “In the spirit of the project the group decided at the last workshop they wanted to explore Southampton’s connection to the sea so we will be drawing an array of seaside/ beach related objects that we’ve been collecting over the last week.

“And of course there will be tea, coffee, biscuits and plenty of conversation to be had!”

As reported, it's part of a nine-month programme of fortnightly creative workshops in Mansbridge for men experiencing isolation, to “come together, make and reconnect with their local community and spaces”.

Thursday's session takes place from 1-4pm at St Mary’s Church Hall, off Wessex Lane, SO18 2ST.
