The Feoffees and Thirteen of Tetbury
It has been a very busy summer for us all, it started with some ground preparation in Cutwell ready for the planting of a new tree. This involved removing a large number of old roots and thanks go to Dave Hicks, Dave Norris, John Price, John Sharp and Trolley Wood for all of their hard work in completing this. At the Market House we have also been busy, installing a new alarm system and smoke detector.
The Feoffees also supported an art day for 21 students as part of SWR enrichment week. Working from the pod the students looked at the different techniques of graffiti art, a popular art format with young people. A Tetbury graffiti artist lead the session supported by youth workers. The local Police Officer and Police Community Support Officer also came along to the event to discuss the legalities of graffiti, so the students were fully informed about what is lawful and what is not.
Once again, the Year 6 leavers at St Mary’s School were all awarded a Bronze Feoffee Medallion as they move on to the next stage in their education.
Tony Walsh has continued with his historical talks for local groups and he has recently given another talk to the Westonbirt Society, if you are part of a group or organisation who would be interested in a talk, please contact us either by speaking to a member of the Feoffee or Thirteen or via our website.
