TWO members of Huddersfield Town Centre Partnership (HTCP) have joined forces to benefit both their businesses.
Sandra Babbings, managing director of occupational health and fitness business Prohms Ltd, commissioned fellow HTCP member Mark Longbottom, of Linthwaite-based Design 58, to produce bespoke artwork.
The art is for the health and fitness firm’s new premises at Willow Lodge, Penistone. The company is currently based at the Textile Centre of Excellence at Red Doles Lane.
The artwork has been inspired by the local landscape and aims to provide both a calming and relaxing atmosphere for visitors and staff in the building.
Mark has delivered the first of the canvases and is now working on additional artwork for the boardroom and reception areas.
Sandra said: “As we intend to use the facilities at Willow Lodge to host events and seminars, the rooms need to be interesting, colourful and inviting.
“I think the work done by Mark really gives the rooms that finishing touch.”
