Bring and buy bonanza

 

Once again it was standing room only at Jill Dodge's annual pre-Christmas bring and buy sale and coffee morning yesterday.

Jill and her group  of helpers transformed her home in Northleaze into an Aladdin's cave of delights, from knitted Santas to bobble-hatted miniature jars of chutney.

And again their selfless hard work raised a magnificent amount for the Goods Shed arts centre project appeal - over £500!

  No wonder Jill recently received an Unsung Hero award from the Tetbury Advertiser. What a star - and where would we be without you and your indefatigable friends?

Sculpture Exhibition Opens

The Goods Shed Sculpture Exhibition opened its doors to the public on Wednesday - with one of the first visitors buying  one of the works!

Hardly surprising, as it is as intriguing and diverse a show as you'll find anywhere, let alone in the unusual surroundings of an unrestored Victorian Goods Shed with the barest essentials in the way of lighting and furnishing. 

Not to be missed, especially as dusk as the light fades and spotlights hung from wire stretchers take over the task of illuminating the sculpted forms on concrete-block plinths.

It is open every day until 23 November, with a possibility of being extended further  if needed.

 

 

Back in a minute!

Please bear with us while we bring the Goods Shed web site back up to date. Owing to a security breach affecting thousands of sites which use the same open source content management system as us, we've had to roll back our pages to a safe time. It means we've lost one or two articles forever but we'll have news of our busy programme of forthcoming events back online shortly!

£30,000 award from Summerfield Trust

Ronald Summerfield blue plaque, CheltenhamWe are delighted to announce that the Summerfield Trust has awarded the Project a grant of £30,000. The money will be used to install digital audio-visual equipment and black-out blinds for the Goods Shed cinema. 

The Summerfield Charitable Trust (www.summerfield.org.uk) was established by Ronald Summerfield, a Cheltenham antique dealer, shortly before his death in 1989. It supports charitable causes throughout Gloucestershire.

Their generous support brings the total pledged to the Project and raised through our own events so far this year to almost £50,000.
