Greetings from The Seeker!

After a couple of weeks away I'm back for your Wednesday round-up. I like to think of it as a bit of me trying to join the dots and sharing some interesting stuff.

Thanks to Tom for holding the fort in my absence, too – and also to you for your continuing kind words and support about what we are trying to do.

Big news - we now have more than 800 of you signed up to our Seeker Community - so thank you for doing your bit to support sustainable, independent journalism.

Our featured artist this week is Costessey-based Clare Oxley. Clare paints mainly East Anglian landscapes including this one – Starflower Field, which caught my eye. Discover more about her here.

Finally, it’s A- Level results day tomorrow so to all those waiting, good luck, and whatever grades you get remember it’s just the first step of what I hope will be an exciting journey ahead.
