It's official!  We leave Bearwood!

 After 20 years in Bearwood we've decided that the countryside's calling and we're moving to pastures new in Devon. 

We’ve really enjoyed living here, met lots of lovely Bearwoodians over the years and relished from being involved in the local community.

We would like to thank everyone who’s contributed to the welovebearwood blog, we’ve loved working with you, promoting your event/business etc and being able to ask your interview questions such as what makes Lightwoods Chippys’ chips orange. 

A big thank you also goes out to all our readers we hope we’ve informed you about what’s happening in Bearwood and put a smile on your faces.

It’s been good in the wood.

Bearwood Art With History


Local illustrator, Joshua Whitehouse, contacted welovebearwood with the exciting news of his exhibition which takes place next month on 3rd October at Oops Gallery on Sandon Road.
Joshua explained that his ‘Bearwood – Art with History’ exhibition “will re-tell the untold historic stories of Bearwood using research from local historian Mary Bodfish” and will include “a collection of illustrations showcasing this history, a large A2 print capturing the whole of Bearwood and postcards depicting landscapes and elements of the town.”


We love the fact that Joshua’s exhibition mixes old Bearwood with new Bearwood and reckon he's definitely a Bearwood All-Star.

You can find out all about Joshua’s artwork via his website (right here!),  his blog (right here!), his Facebook page (right here!) and his Twitter account (right here!).
