The dust has finally settled from the Project Soothe Exhibition and we have had a chance to catch our breath and take stock.

The exhibition was a resounding success with a great deal of positive feedback from our many visitors. Over 400 questionnaires were submitted during the course of the exhibition and over  8,000 image comparisons were made. We made many new contacts with people interested in how nature and images of nature soothe us and had visits from two school parties.

Since the exhibition closed we have entered all the data from the questionnaires into a database and discovered the winning panel. We will now analyse the data further and write a report that will be circulate to those who requested it as well as being made available on this site.

A big thank you to all those who helped make it all possible and who came along and took part in the exhibition.

The favourite poster was the first choice of 76 people and received 162 votes over all.

The posters from the exhibition have gone on to be displayed at Broughton High School.
