There is a little train that runs in Hotham Park in the summer and half term holidays. He is named Boris and children love him. I’m told his name is derived not from a certain blond desheveled politician but from a condensed version of the town’s name, Bognor Regis. The name is the result of a competition and I rather like it. Here is a painting of said Boris with a patch of lovely wild flowers. I finished it today in preparation for my little exhibition Hotham Park cafe on Monday evening.
