Thank you & Sept Update

Thank you very much to everyone who came and supported our music event on 21st August. We’re all really pleased that it went so well, and we’ve had quite a few messages of thanks, so we think everyone had a great night! Even the weather managed to help us out, just in the nick of time though! 

It was a lot of work to organise and deliver the event and we are so glad that it went well. Not only did everyone have a brilliant Queen and ABBA evening, but we also managed to make £8,000 for the Farley Hospital charity! This is an amazing outcome, and the funds are going to make a huge difference in our ability to safely look after the building. 

Other Updates

  • The August board meeting was the second to be held in the Wardenry now that is allowed again
