Big Fund Boost for Kaloko Trust from Broome Farm

As you may have read in a recent issue of Wyenot News, a fantastic Cider and Music Festival was held at Broome Farm, Peterstow. Although the cider festival is the biggest event on the Broome Farm calendar, many other events, such as ceilidhs, folk nights and blues nights are held there, not only guaranteeing everybody a great night out, but giving them the opportunity of supporting their chosen charity of the year.

During the last twelve months, Broome Farm guests have been donating money to the Kaloko Trust and we were invited along to the farm on Friday evening for both a social gathering and the presentation of a cheque to Kaloko Trust Director, Andrew Brown. A staggering £2,525 was raised for the trust who are teaching the people of the outlying villages of Zambia to become not only self sufficient, but environmentally friendly at the same time.

The main source of income out there until recently was making charcoal, which of course depletes the density of the surrounding forests. Under the guidance of the trust they have now begun keeping bees. They will soon be able to make money not only from the honey the bees produce, they will also be able to make wax products such as candles and other items, hopefully doing away with the need to destroy the trees.

Andrew was absolutely delighted with the cheque and promised to bring some honey back from Zambia upon his next visit.

After the presentation a few glasses of mulled cider were handed out, Cindy took charge of the barbecue, some fun conker fights were held and a bit of a sing-a-long went on in the background. A most enjoyable evening was had by all.

Goodrich School children wash cars for Children In Need

Staff and children at Goodrich Primary School spent the day on Friday washing cars, providing tea and cakes, cleaning shoes and giving hand massages to raise money in advance for this year's Children in Need, 'It's A Knockout'.

Tina and I went along to the school on Friday to see how they were getting on and to take some photographs of the day. Pictured below you can see Kayah Worrall, Harrison Barrett, Keiran Lowley, Olley Owens, Jack Whittaker, Sabastion Harvey and Effie Seal washing the Wyenot Mobile. Yes, I opened my wallet whilst there and, after a couple of moths had escaped, I paid £2.50 to have the car washed in a good cause.

Most local people must have noticed that washing the car is something I do not generally do. I have owned that car for four years now and have only ever washed it twice - once the day I got it and four years later, just five days prior to the Goodrich Children in Need day. If only I had known about the event just that little bit further in advance.

THE WYENOT NEWS DEADLINE

The absolute deadline for Wyenot News stories and other items is 12:00, midday on Tuesday, for inclusion in the following day's edition.

PLEASE NOTE HOWEVER: This is an absolute deadline and not the time I am asking for articles to be sent in. Mondays and Tuesdays here at 'Wyenot News' are Hell with by far, the most events I cover occurring at the weekend. The photography that the public sees happening is only one tiny part of the whole picture (please excuse the pun) of running this weekly news publication and the bits of prep that people do not see, are actually the most time consuming part of getting the story out.

If at all possible, please send your story in as early as you can, rather than wait until the very last minute, so that I can have at least a fighting chance of getting to bed before 3:00 am every Tuesday and Wednesday morning after what has lately become two 18 hour working days on the trot.

Thank you very much for your understanding and help.

Alan
