The Feoffees and Thirteen of Tetbury

May is a busy month here in Tetbury and I would like to start by wishing the organisers of Wacky Races and Woolsack Day all the best for successful events.

By now the redecoration of The Market Hall has begun and we are doing our very best to keep any inconvenience caused to a minimum, however, if you are experiencing problems, please let us know.

Recently Thirteen member Nikki Ind and our Clerk Alison Mackay were pleased to attend the opening of the Children’s Zone at Tetbury Library, after the recent refurbishment and as you can see, the new sofa is already being put to good use by the younger members of our community.  The Feoffee were pleased to be able to give a grant to the library for this refurbishment, which is a valuable community asset and used by residents of all ages.

Grass Keep – does anyone wish to apply for the grass keep in Preston Park? Due to the nature of users – Dog Walkers, Runners, Families – this probably suits cattle best.  If you are interested, please contact Feoffee Will Cook.
