The Feoffees and Thirteen of Tetbury
With the summer approaching, our town will start to burst into flower, with our flower beds and hanging baskets being prepared and displayed. It has been a busy spring for us, as custodians to a number of Open Spaces in the town which include – The Millennium Green, Preston Park and the Railway Line, The Knapp, Scavenge Lane and Cutwell. We are pleased to have been able to replace the tree, which previously had to be removed for safety, at Cutwell and I must thank Dave Norris, John Latter and John Price for arranging the planting of this tree. They were pleased to be joined by the children from Puddleducks, who we hope will watch this tree grow big and strong, as they do.
If you want to know more about us and the work that we do within the town and grants available, please speak to any member of The Feoffee or Thirteen, or check out our website www.thefeoffeesoftetbury.co.uk and we would be pleased to hear from you if you have any projects which you feel may be of interest to us. We hope to meet you at one of our events over the summer months, the dates of which are given below:
29th June - Community BBQ at the Millennium Green
8th September - Beating of the Bounds
15th/16th September - Heritage Weekend
Finally, I am pleased to confirm that we have recently given three grants for equipment to students at Cirencester College, University and Teacher Training.
