Working on the idea that free publicity is good publicity, I was especially pleased to see
the gallery mentioned twice recently in newspaper stories. These were totally unexpected, but nevertheless very welcome while the house is closed. One was in a story about lack of signage in Ely, when the local newspaper had rang me up for my oppinion. The other, was when I reacted angrily to the proposed cuts to the Babylon Gallery and Maltings cinema.
'Local arts champion, Ted Coney, who runs Ted Coney's Family Portraits said the council was trying to wreck art and leisure provision in the area' so the story went.
