We are extraordinarily fortunate that two highly accomplished professional musicians, Sophie Yates and Bill Badley, have agreed to give a recital of 16th and 17th century music from England, Spain, France and Italy, played on the lute and virginal.  Regardless of your musical preferences, this is a unique opportunity to enjoy this melodic music in the atmospheric surroundings of South Wraxall Church.

Kilimanjaro challenge

From Clare Norrie:

In a moment of madness Clare Norrie and Ruth Warren of the Lower Village agreed to join a fantastic group of women on a trek up the worlds tallest free standing mountain, Kilimanjaro .All 5895m of it, or if you still work in old money, 19,340 ft. Either way you look at it, it is a massive challenge.

We are using this opportunity to raise some money for a national charity called Women’s Aid, who support women and children who are affected by any form of domestic abuse.

If you would like to sponsor us please follow the link below,

Thank you all for all your enthusiasm and support so far. It REALLY will help us get to the top!

Love Clare and Ruth xx
