The Cleeve Prior Heritage Trust looks after 27acres (11 ha) of old pasture, traditional orchards, woodland and ponds that have been acquired by the village over the years.
A Charitable Trust started in 1997, it is based in the Grade ll listed Field Barn. Local volunteers meet every Tuesday from 10.00am until 1.00pm. During that time we carry out a wide variety of jobs depending on the time of the year. From time to time we also undertake projects in order to maintain and develop the asset’s.
We also organise events at specific times of the year to raise funds whilst at the same time bringing our local community together.
Plum Pick Day – 26 August
Thanks to all who came to pick plums and enjoy a lovely afternoon in the Community Garden at Field Barn. The weather was kind, there were still plenty of plums, and without many maggots!!
The Garden comes alive when there is a good crowd eating and drinking and chatting as if we have not seen each other for a year. We all enjoyed the evening event entertained right royally by Facta 5, playing their hearts out until 11 pm.
I am sure you will all be pleased to hear that when all the beer had been drunk [by the following Friday] and all monies counted, the Trust made over £1,700!
So thanks to all the volunteers and everyone who worked so hard to make it a memorable day. We were all packed up by midnight, so we are getting quite slick at dismantling the marquee and putting things away. Mind you we spent most of the next Tuesday getting back to normal!!
