Concert & Cream Teas

Our Fund-raising concert was a huge success and thoroughly
enjoyed by a packed audience.


  The concert was introduced by Jane from the Moorland Mousie Trust,
who described the work of the Exmoor Pony Centre.

This was followed by a programme of lively music played on flute and saxophone
by talented young musicians from the High Park Music School,
 some of whom were playing for the first time in public.

 



 
After the concert, delicious cream teas were served
in the garden at Foxes Fields by the students.


 And there was a chance to meet and stroke Rama, the Exmoor Pony adopted by Foxes.

 


The concert was organised by Sarah, one of our volunteers, who thanks to my bad
photography, you can just see at the back of the group below. My apologies, Sarah!


Our grateful thanks go to everyone who bought tickets, those who gave so generously to the collection afterwards, to Foxes Academy for providing such a beautiful venue and the cream teas, and of course to the performers who gave such an enjoyable and accomplished performance.

Elise Pilkington Charitable Trust Funding Grant


We have received a generous funding grant from the Elise Pilkington Charitable Trust for which we are extremely grateful.

It is for refurbishing work at the Centre and just before half-term we took delivery of a large amount of sand to resurface the school; it looks great.

The next project is to install more fencing to be able to separate off some paddock areas.

Concert in Minehead

Just a reminder that this Saturday (June 15th) is our Fundraising Concert.

Music - followed by a cream tea and a visit from an Exmoor Pony.

What better way to spend a summer afternoon by the sea?
