THINKING OF TAKING PART?
h.Art will become independent of Brightstripe this year, due to the closure of Brightstripe.
“Brightstripe is having to close, due to circumstances beyond our control around inherited pension regulations.
Sadly we will close on the 31st March, but have planned to honour, complete and make provision for all current initiatives.
The last four years have seen some great successes including the development of h.Art. The Brightstripe team sincerely thank everyone that’s supported us and been involved in creating a strong legacy for Herefordshire”
