HEADLINES

Great News: BV is one of Co-op Local Community Fund’s chosen causes, 9 April - 7 October 2017. They give 1% of member spend (Co-op branded products) to local causes. So please join, spend & choose us.

We learned with sadness that Tony Boston’s father, Jim died before Christmas. His mother Margaret is now in a nursing home in Blythe Bridge.

Joan Jones’s family kindly divided donations in her memory between a hospice & BV. We received £210 which will augment current Awards for All funding, as it doesn’t cover all writing costs.

Jim & Margaret Boston, Tony’s parents, dropped by last month. They made a most generous £300 donation in Tony’s memory to support the art group in 2017
