THE contributions made by women during the Second World War have been celebrated with the unveiling of a sculpture on the banks of Beaulieu River at Exbury.

Ave Atque Vale, which means Hail and Farewell in Latin was officially unveiled in the grounds of Palais des Vaches Art Gallery to commemorate the 80th Anniversary of D-Day.

The riverside installation, was commissioned by the celebrated British photographer Alistair Morrison, as part of a nationwide Time to Connect project which links artists with beautiful venues across the UK. 

The sculpture can be viewed during open weekends from a nearby meadow area with stunning views over the Beaulieu River. Oyster Catchers have been observed close to the sculpture, so direct access will be restricted until after the nesting season.
