The Feoffees and Thirteen of Tetbury
Over the last month or so we have seen a number of changes in the Thirteen, firstly Pam Bird – our hardworking and historically, the first woman in history to be voted as a member of the Thirteen – decided to stand down after 18 years. I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Pam for her contribution to our work in the town and particularly The Market Hall over this time. Pam has been presented with flowers and the Thirteen of Tetbury Emeritus, along with a farewell Afternoon Tea at The Close.
Secondly, I am pleased to confirm the appointment of Darby Law to the Thirteen, who we welcome and look forward to working with on our projects in the town.
Many of you may not realise that the Feoffee have a number of parking spaces available for rent in the town, both in The Chipping and at the bottom of Gumstool Hill and which we hold a waiting lists for. However, recently an opportunity has come up for one space at the bottom of Gumstool Hill and if you are interested in renting this, please contact us via our website. The annual rent is £350 (1st January – 31st December – pro rata if taken part way through the year).
Finally, we hope to meet you at one of our events over the summer months, the dates of which are given below:
8th September - Beating of the Bounds
15th/16th September - Heritage Weekend
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.
