Frocester Beer Festival – Cheque presentations
Saturday evening 7th December witnessed the presentation of cheques to three very worthy local charities. All of whom do such fantastic work and we are very proud to be associated with them.
Meningitis Now, Inclusion Gloucestershire and The Dursley Lions benefitted from this year’s highly successful Frocester Beer Festival.
The evening kicked off with an introduction by beer Festival chairman Paul Mukasa, who in turn thanked everyone who contributed to this years success.
A table top quiz began, courtesy of Pete Davis, which involved everyone and was a brilliant way of people feeling relaxed and talking to each other, even if they have never met before!
This was followed by the presentation of the cheques with each beneficiary saying a few words about the amazing work each of them do day in day out.
A thank you from club chairman John Evans was then followed by hot food, served on what was a night of celebration of the work that’s going on everyday by some amazing people.
The now infamous Frocester Spring Ball is scheduled for Saturday April 4th, 2020. The cost will be £60 per person and it is advisable to consider booking your place as soon as possible as this event usually sells out very quickly. Tables of 10 will be available should you wish to make a group booking. Please contact Dave Poultney in the first instance.
The format will be the usual 3 course meal, drink on arrival, professional photographer to capture your best side, large fully stocked bar and entertainment in the form of ‘Tommy & The Fuse’.
Always a popular and enjoyable evening so write that date in your diary please. Better still make that booking.
IT’S YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD
Frocester Cricket Club received an outstanding mark of 89% winning the Heart of England in Bloom for 2019.
A simply fantastic effort and a huge thank you to all the volunteers involved. Special thanks to Andrew Marson for all his efforts.
The Royal Horticultural Society’s It’s Your Neighbourhood campaign is part of the wider Britain in Bloom initiative, providing an opportunity for smaller community groups to get involved.
RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood is a unique scheme for volunteered led community gardening projects/groups who are focused on improving their local environment through community gardening. They can be working in their local street, estate where they live, a back alley they share with their neighbours, or the local community centre’s outdoor space. Almost any outdoor site being looked after by the local community qualifies for this scheme. RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood is an inclusive, non-competitive scheme, a group can be made up of any number of community volunteers.
The marking sheet was split into 3 sections as follows:
Section A: Community Participation – 40 out of 40 marks
Section B: Environmental Responsibility – 25 out of 30 marks
Section C: Gardening Achievement – 24 out of 30 marks
In the words of introduction on the result sheet it read; The clubhouse (one of the largest buildings in the village) and grounds set in wonderful surroundings. Is this a cricket club or a community hub?
There already plans afoot to make it even better in 2020, watch this space. Or better still come to Frocester Cricket Club and see for yourself.
