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.

  1. Oh wow! Its wonderful to know the Event went so well. You can see from Rama's photo the Event definitely had Pony Approval! Thanks for sharing the photos and congratulations to Foxes Academy, High Park Music School who would have spent hours practising those important crotchets and quavers Sarah, Jane and all the "behind the scenes" people for inspiring us all through creating your Event. Those scones in the photo above sure look appetising mmmm! Liz & the Exmoor Traprain Ponies .

  2. Yes, we did really well, Liz, thanks to the generosity of all who freely gave their time (and talents) and helped to make it such a success.
