Charity sing update







On Friday 16 May, Frampton Cotterell C of E School choirs will be launching the unique fundraising event a 30 hour hymnathon. Plans are progressing well. To ensure this event is the success it deserves local support is still needed. The event will raise money for two local causes. St Peters Church is raising funds for their organ replacement, and Frampton Cotterell C of E School is upgrading the technology resources for the children to use. The website is being updated regularly with the schedule and programme of events. You can find out when individual community groups are taking part, or when your favourite hymn is scheduled to time your visit. www. framptonhymnathon Fun activities are taking place during the event such as tower tours, prize raffle, local group information stands,

Keep up the good work I do look forward to Frome Valley Voice each month – I thought the March edition was your best yet. There’s lots of interesting local information presented in an informative and attractive way. I read the magazine as a Frampton Cotterell resident and for my job with Well Aware which is the Care Forum’s free online guide to local health, wellbeing and community services, groups and organisations (see Local information on page 2). Keep up the good work! David Harwood

Frampton Athletic say their second Sport Relief Mile event at Beesmoor Road Playing Fields was a great success. The event saw over 150 people run either a 1, 3 or 6 mile course around the Frampton Cotterell and the surrounding villages. With the exception of the very heavy hail storm an hour before the race was due to commence, the sun came out just in time for the start and remained out for the rest of the day! With all ages turning out to run the courses, it was great event that everybody seemed to enjoy. Reserve Team Manager, Brian Cook, and Frampton midfielder, Spencer Davies, put people through their paces with a good warm up, before taking to the course themselves. Event Organiser, Nick Talbot, said, “Despite the numbers being slightly down on the same event in 2012, it’s been a great event and it’s been good to see all the families out there running the courses together and enjoying themselves. Hopefully we have managed to raise some significant funds to add to the £53million that has been raised so far by Sport Relief”. The sponsorship total for the Frampton Athletic FC Mile won’t be known until the Autumn, as all the funds need to be collected, counted and apportioned to the event, but early estimations suggest that the event has surpassed the target of £1,000, which is a great effort by all who took part.
