The Arts Society, Blockley, have been fund raising for Campden Edge. Presenting a cheque for £600, Jenny Bruce, Young Arts Committee Member, emphasised the Society’s strong support for the benefits of arts education to all young people.
The money was raised amongst the Arts Society members at their New Year’s Lunch held at Wyck Hill House Hotel in January.

Our thanks to Mary Gray for collecting all of this! It came to the magnificent sum of £52.16
Campden Open Gardens: Thanks to the support of the Open Gardens team and the wonderful garden owners, we have received £3321 which is half the monies they raised over their June weekend.
Friends and visitors who wander around admiring the beautiful gardens probably don’t realise just how much organisation and hard work goes into making this weekend such a resounding success every year. Well done. And, as a result of this event, we have received further generous donations from local residents.
Elgar Chorale: We would like to thank the Elgar Chorale who put on a wonderful performance of song and readings in July to a large and very appreciative audience.
The programme comprised: Shakespeare, Copeland, Parry, Elgar, some Spirituals and a small selection of letters & poems. With their Guest Accompanist the very wonderful Jessica May on piano.
Proceeds from this event were shared between Campden Edge & Campden Home Nursing.
We were very grateful to receive the generous sum of £200 from a local lady who sold her homemade jam during Open Garden weekend.
Our thanks to:
Cotswold House Hotel & Spa
Fillet and Bone
The Noel Arms
The Volunteer Inn
and all the people who kindly pop their spare change into them.
