MAY 2017 UPDATE





Thank you to all who organised, participated in and supported the very enjoyable concert by the D’Capo choir, Barnham Broom School choir and the Windmill Handbell Ringers at Carleton Forehoe Church on Friday 19th May.  We are very grateful to receive £500 towards our Bells Appeal from the event.

This, together with our hugely successful Golf and Bridge day has brought our fund plus pledges to just over £40,000.

As part of our application to the Heritage Lottery Fund, we need to show that our Community fully supports our Bells Appeal. Over the last couple of weeks, several volunteers have been round the village gathering this evidence in the form of signatures. Our thanks to all who have responded so far, either with their signature on the day or by dropping the signed form back to the Barnham Broom shop. If you still have your form, please do sign it and drop it back to the shop.

Thank you all once again for your continued support.
We hope to see you at our next event, which is Afternoon Tea & Open Garden at Home Farm on Saturday 1st July.
