Newsletter – January 2019

Dear All,

 

A rather belated Happy New Year to everyone, and apologies for the lateness of this Newsletter as we have been struggling somewhat to finalise our plans for this year.

 

The second half of last year yielded both excellent entertainment and results for us. Ana and Arturo’s lovely cello and piano recital raised £223, and Rose Silk’s jazz evening gave us a return of £580. The Come and Sing event (The Armed Man) raised £1022 before a donation to a military charity, and finally the Midwinter Concert before a packed audience made a profit of £1840. Special thanks to Ian Tribe and Geraldine Clotworthy for all their work in organising the last two events respectively.

 

In addition to our contribution of £50,000 to the restoration of the West Window of St. Bartholomew’s, we funded the publication of Peter Wingrave’s splendid book ‘Crewkerne Parish – its Church and People’ which was enhanced so much by Jeff Hutson’s brilliant photography. This book remains on sale at the Phoenix Bookshop and the Town Hall.
