Any beady-eyed viewers might have spotted a cameo appearance by some of our Minerva’s Owls ‘flock’ on ITV West Country on Tuesday night (5th June). A selection of the newly decorated owls made an appearance in the primetime news feature, alongside event organisers Megan Witty and Gitte Dawson. The exclusive story also included a sneak-peak of some behind the scenes design work during an interview with Bath-based artist Annabel Menheneott who was seen decorating her owl Nocturnowl for sponsors Crest Nicholson, Bath Riverside.
Other owls featured in the segment included, Digit’owl, sponsored by Bath Quays and designed by John Gould, Sterling, sponsored by The Silver Shop of Bath and painted by Kat Thomas, Blossom owlet, sponsored and painted by pupils at Kingswood School, Trigoformes, sponsored by Milsom Place and painted by Sue Guthrie, Golden Civetta, sponsored by Holburne Park and painted by Josie Bahar and finally the owlet Ono, who is sponsored by headline sponsors SouthGate Bath on behalf of B&NES Young Carers, one of the charity beneficiaries of the auction at the end of the trail.
