As many of you know, we are responsible for not only The Market House, but also areas of Open Space within our town for the benefit of the residents and the snow at the end of January, was not only beautiful, but allowed many of you to enjoy our largest area, Preston Park, with snowy walks and sledging.
2019 will be another busy year for us and the largest project will be starting on 15th April, when, as I mentioned last month, we begin the repair and decoration of The Market House. This historic building is the centre piece of our Town and this essential maintenance will mean it will remain so for many years to come. I would ask you to all please bear with us during the 5 weeks of work and I am pleased to confirm that during this work, 9am – 5pm, there will be manually operated traffic lights, in order to ensure that any inconvenience is kept to a minimum.
As a group, we are also very lucky that Thirteen member, Dr Tony Walsh, gives talks on the history of the Feoffee and I am pleased to confirm that he will be speaking over the next couple of months, not only in Tetbury and the surrounding villages, but as far a field as Cirencester and Cheltenham. If you are a member of a group who would like Tony to visit, please let Tony know, either personally or via our website.
Finally, I am pleased to confirm that the Feoffee have made the following grants:
· Tetbury Hospital - funds to assist with the purchase of an Ophthalmology Microscope
· Wednesday and Friday Day Centre – grant to allow this invaluable service to continue to operate
· Tetbury RFC Minis – grants towards tours for under 10’s, under 11’s and under 12’s
You can find out much more about our grants, history and the current work we do in the town, by visiting our website www.thefeoffeesoftetbury.co.uk or speaking to any member of the Feoffee or Thirteen, we would be pleased to hear from you.
