Raising money for Cancer Research
Our very good friend Sue Applegate was diagnosed with cancer about 3 months ago and she underwent an operation. Now at the end of January 2024 she has just had her 3rd dose of chemotherapy. Graham decided in late December last year, along with fellow Kingsbury bandsman David White, to partake of a sponsored head shave at the Wyndham Arms to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
An update about the above. It is now 8th February and Grahams giving page for Cancer Research UK is now closed. The initial target was to raise £500 for Cancer Research UK but that target has been blown out of the water. The final total from the giving page plus people donating at the Wyndham and School Farm shop is a magnificent £2,754.43 (including Gift Aid). THANK YOU to everyone however you donated. Sue has another 3 lots of chemotherapy to do, but is coping well and is in good spirits.
New Owl Nesting Box for a barn
We have had an Owl Nesting box in our wood for a number of years but this one isn’t weather proof so couldn’t be sited outdoors. Hence it has been placed high up in an open fronted barn. We hope that we have been early enough in the year for it to be used by something, hopefully owls – but you never know what will claim it!
Fun & Fundraising at the Wyndham Arms
Graham half way through his headshave. He eventually ended up with no hair or eyebrows.
Hogget available again from Easter week
We have Wiltshire Horn hogget going to the butcher to be back in time for Easter. A hogget is older than lamb, which is under a year old and younger than mutton which is over 3 years old.
