    MADE IN CORNWALL

    Departing from tradition this play, written by Nigel Pascoe, was performed as a Radio Production in Lyndhurst last week to raise funds for All Saints Church Minstead Tower Repair Fund.  All members of the cast were from either Minstead Players or Lyndhurst Drama Society and it was directed by Michele Arkle.

    This dramatic story about society’s interaction with mental health, prejudice and passion was extremely well supported and I am delighted to say that £1,595. 95 has been raised for the Fund.   Included in this figure was £638 from the raffle and silent auction that was run by Peter and Helen Bennett.

    We would like to thank St Michaels and All Angels Church Lyndhurst for their support and co-operation with this enterprising production and also huge thanks for the wonderful raffle prizes and donations from the villages. There were over thirty prizes on each night and this contributed greatly to the successful fundraising.

     

    Special Request for local grazing for 8-10 weeks in Spring

    “I am passionate about restoring and maintaining my fields in Minstead and in keeping with NFNPA policies.
    I use an organic new forest seed as recommended by the NFNPA and over the years have only manually weed controlled.
    This year I aim to over-seed and rest all the fields so I need to rent some land for my 3 animals for a couple of months.
    If this is possible I would be very grateful.”

    ALL SAINTS CHURCH

    Nigel Pascoe’s Premiere of “Made In Cornwall”, that played to rapturous applause on 9th and 10th, earned £1595.95 towards the All Saints’ Tower fund.

    Many thanks to Nigel, the production team and cast as well as to all who attended and contributed to the fundraising.
