We hope to be able to provide more grants to the village in 2024.

We run our first collaborative fundraising Quiz with the Pavilion on the 28 November, it was a good laugh and raised £250 for the Trust’s coffers. The Pavilion bar was well stocked for the event and did not disappoint. 60 people attended with teams from around the village and Wiveliscombe. The Pavilion looked fantastic and everyone joined by wearing festive attire and decorating tables with a Christmas theme. 

Special thanks to Tamsin, Becky and Nathan for helping make the event run smoothly.

On a different note, we would like to thank Geoff Elson for all his hard work as a trustee over the last 5 years. We hope you enjoy your new adventures.
