The Feoffees and Thirteen of Tetbury
We had a wonderful turn out for the annual Feoffee and Thirteen Community BBQ on the Millennium Green at the end of June. We were blessed with a lovey warm evening, where new and old friends had the opportunity to catch up and the children played in the sun. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Thirteen team who organised this event, in particular, Danny Bristow, who co-ordinated the evening, it really was a great success.
At the beginning of September, the Plastic Free Picnic will be taking place on the Millennium Green. This has been arranged by the Tetbury Area Churches Together, following the very successful ‘Plastic Free Tetbury’ month, which was held in June. As we move into the autumn and the fruit ripens, we do hope that you will take the opportunity to visit the Community Orchard on Herd Lane, where you can help yourself to a few apples for your families and enjoy produce with zero food miles. However, could I ask you all to please only pick this fruit for your own personal consumption, so that all members of our community can benefit – this fruit is not for commercial ventures.
