On behalf of the Festival organising committee may I thank everyone for their support in making the Festival such a great success. It is no exaggeration to say that virtually everyone was involved in some way, big or small, in supporting this event and we should all be proud of our collective achievement.
As you may have heard we exceeded the financial targets set by a considerable margin and whilst we still don’t know the final net amount, we hope to clear about £15,000. The Child Brain Injury Trust and Macmillan’s will receive donations and the remainder will go to the Little Lambs pre-school play group that meets in the church every week, the church building fund for updating the facilities to make it more of a community centre and a general village improvement fund. The final figures and money to be distributed will be verified and published soon.
Compliments have been streaming in from many quarters and it is clear that the whole event has enhanced the image of Stratton Audley throughout the area. Hopefully this has given a little boost to each and every one of us who live and work in the Parish.
Do check out the Facebook pages for Stratton Audley Parish Council and also the Stratton Audley Food Beer & Music Festival as there are some great photos to view.
