Wassail for Feed Bristol (Avon Wildlife Trust)

A huge thank you to all who braved the snowy conditions to play at the Wassail for Feed Bristol (Avon Wildlife Trust) and for playing so well despite the cold.

It was a great day and thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended – some great dancing and singing.

Here is a note of thanks from the organiser Matt Cracknell:

‘Please pass on my gratitude and thanks to everyone for coming to play. We really appreciated you all made the effort given the conditions …. it was the perfect setting!

Sorry there was a lapse in food just as you were all going to be fed. We were slightly delayed by the snow the day before on prepping in quantity. I hope you all got fed in the end.

I will send some photos across to the Facebook page when I get a chance.’

Matt

Where next for BVB?

Happy New Year for you and BVB.

With Laurel replacing Matt as our musical leader the steering group would like your views on future planning by asking you to complete this survey which will take about 10 minutes. We know that no survey is perfect so if you need to clarify your view make a note in the margin. Don’t forget to sign it.

Please return via BVB email by 12 noon on January 5th so Liz can process the data and share with Laurel.
