Christmas in the Cloisters 2023: What
a lovely social evening, loads of villagers and visitors milling
around the bar and the brazier and the colourful stalls - all in
the magic of the Joy Mead Cloisters. It was very chilly but it was
DRY. And Santa was so busy he almost ran out presents!
A massive thanks to all our helpers and to
everyone who came and supported us. We raised £1375 for the
Joy Mead which is fantastic!
Celebration of Harvest Oct 2023: A
parade of vintage tractors, a challenging mouse trail, a scarecrow
competition - and a chance to relax and chat in the gorgeous autumn
sunshine. £735 raised for the church. Well done everyone!
Harvest Supper Sept 2023: Another
great social occasion with an excellemt meal and lots of fun over
the auction of produce and bric a brac. A fantastic total of over
£1500 was raised, to be split between the Village Hall and
the Church. Thanks to everyone who helped and supported.
Outdoor theatre in the Joy Mead Cloisters: 'White
Cobra' theatre company brought magical story-telling to the Joy
Mead with their adaptation of the Jules Verne classic 'Around the
World in 80 Days'. It was lovely to see the garden and Cloisters
buzzing. Thank you to all our supporters and helpers!
Joy Mead 100th birthday celebrations in 2022:
From 'Mr Toad' to Music Hall, from 'Soul Music'
at full volume to the relaxing strains of the wind band, the Joy
Mead was full of music and chat and celebrations.We did celebrate
the 100th birthday of our lovely garden in style and hopefully Joy
would have been proud.
Thank you so much to the amazing team who made
it happen. And thank you to all those who came and donated and bought
raffle tickets (prizes are on their way!). It wasn't the main aim
but we also managed to raise about £2400 for the Joy Mead
which is a fantastic result.
