   Donna Heart Artist


Donna Heart is the inspiration and designer of our WPA logo. The WPA feels Donna captured the essence of Wonthella with her quirky interpretation of two unique Wonthella houses. Donna’s creativity was further utilised when she suggested the tag line “Looking back, moving forward…” the WPA has endeavoured to do that by celebrating, recording and preserving its rich history in this website.
 SCAN0101  Fiona Allen and the Allen Family The WPA is very grateful to the Allen Family for the use of historic photos taken by their father/grandfather, George Kenworth Allen.  George Allen’s Ritesort Tomato label was also used on our 2014 Sunshine Festival Float.
