We are holding a Charity Ball on May 13th to help raise funds to purchase Fordhall Farm. The evening will consist of a scrumptious dinner – all local or organic food. This will be followed by an auction and a ceilidh dance which promises to provide much entertainment and fun. Music is coming from local musicians and there is even the potential for a song from The Farmer, The Plough and The Devil play. The venue is generously being donated by Harper Adams University College, Newport, Shropshire which is only approx 10 miles from Fordhall.
We are still collecting auction prizes – so far they range between signed books, hot air balloon rides, a tour around Houses of Parliment and a tour for four around Highgrove Gardens, donated by HRH Prince of Wales.
The guest speaker for the evening is Tom Oliver who has been a huge help to the campaign so far. He is Head of Rural Policy at CPRE and is a real pleasure to listen to as he speaks with genuine passion about issues that lie close to the Initiatives ethos.
If you have any more ideas or know of anyone it would be worth contacting or inviting please let us know or contact them on our behalf. Invitations can be downloaded from the events page on the website or click on the following link: Invitation. The evening is set to be great fun and an opportunity for people from all over the country to meet and support the Fordhall Community Land Initiative whilst having a ball!
