Andrew Chugg has made a detailed study of the story of this magnificent building, which is long demolished, and will be giving an illustrated talk in the Village Hall after the AGM on 15th October. Meeting start time is 7:30 pm.
I have implemented a versatile calendar page for Conservation Society events, meetings, etc. Please use it to keep up tp date with our programme.
The Christmas Social event which this year will expand into a evening of entertainment by local talent will now take place in the village Hall on the evening of December 21st 2013 and not December 7th as previously advertised.
News update – May 2013
Family Treasure Hunt
Sadly we have had to cancel this event because organising it was just too much given the demands of getting the Blaise Garden project launched. We’d love to sponsor this event and if anyone would like to take on the primary organisation of it next year please let us know
Blaise Walled Garden Project
A lot of work has been put into getting access to part of the former walled garden to Blaise House by HCS and Friends of Blaise.
Latest plans are for first access by volunteers on Sunday 9th June 2pm (at garden next to Blaise House) and on Sunday23rd June l-4pm (at the dairy garden)
Its best to check with the website, www.henburyconservation.co.uk, for the latest news and opening times
Village Walk with Bristol Civic Society – Tuesday July 9th , 6:00 pm at Village Hall
This year we are sharing our walk with members of the Civic Society in order to widen interest in our Conservation area. We will not know until relatively late on how many visitors we shall have so, as a precaution against overloading with too many people, we will be pleased to welcome anyone who did not particpate in the last two. We shall be covering much the same ground as last year. If you are keen to repeat the experience but came previously just let us know and we’ll run a reserve list.
AGM and Talk on Kingweston House – Tuesday 8th October, 7:30 pm at Kingsweston House
NB Change of venue from the Village Hall
Yes, this will be an AGM with a difference!
Norman Routledge, who leases the whole of the house, has kindly agreed to give us a tour of the house and tell us how he is going about sustaining it. In between we’ll fit in our AGM!
Anyone needing a lift to Kingsweston is welcome to contact Tim Parkinson (o7854714085) or Chris Carroll
Christmas Social – Saturday 7th December, 7:00 pm Village Hall
And this event will be rather different from our usual social evening. The format is still evolving but we plan involve the local community and to showcase local talent. It will replace the usual Henbury Singers event so anyone with ideas please come forward.
PS Henbury Conservation Society welcomes everyone interested to come to our meetings and participate in our activities. We do not levy an annual membership fee but ask for a small contribution to expenses incurred in the meeting / activity (eg room hire, etc.)
