Please mention TheWorksLocal when responding to adverts “It was unique when it opened in 1961, and it remains unique today.” This is how Richard Wendorf, the director of an unusual museum on the outskirts of Bath, describes the only public collection of American art to be found beyond the boundaries of the United States. The American Museum in Britain, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2011, contains over 15,000 items devoted to the decorative arts of America: fancy gowns and Shaker furniture, an extensive collection of native folk art, important holdings of early maps charting the discovery and exploration of the Americas, and one of the largest and finest quilt collections in the entire world. “Portrait paintings and Grandma Moses, painted furniture and Chinese export porcelain – you will find it all here on top of Claverton Hill.” For the past 50 years the American Museum in Britain has informed its visitors about the cultural history of the United States in order to strengthen relations between the two countries. Over 3 million people have visited the Museum since it opened in 1961, averaging around 40,000 visitors a year, including thousands of schoolchildren. In 2011, the Museum will mark this historical milestone with a major loan exhibition, a gallery trail, three publications, and the opening of two new facilities. The anniversary year will also feature parties, a film series, and lectures in Bath, London, New York and Washington and much much more. On view in the main exhibition gallery will be an intriguing show entitled Marilyn – Hollywood Icon, featuring twenty of the screen goddess’s gowns and outfits, original photographs and posters, and personal items, all kindly loaned by David Gainsborough Roberts, who has one of the largest collections of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia. Fab@50 presents fifty unusual items in the collection and the fabulous stories that lie behind them, displayed in the Museum’s period rooms within Claverton Manor. On view from 12 March to 30 October 2011, the exhibition and display will be accompanied by significant publications. The two new facilities to be unveiled in this anniversary year are the Folk Art Gallery, located in the former picture gallery of Claverton Manor, and The Coach House – which includes the former stables. The latter will be used for lectures, corporate retreats, musical events, films and educational purposes. The creation of these two new facilities has been made possible by a successful capital campaign that raised over £4 million for the Museum by the close of 2009. American Museum remains one of the most beautifully sited attractions in all of England, welcoming young and old alike. Through its collections and programmes visitors experience how the USA became different from any other country in the world.

Please mention TheWorksLocal when responding to adverts Bath Road public toilets are due to close for good at the end of March Bath Road Traders have called upon residents, traders and users of Bath Road to sign a petition requesting that Cheltenham Borough Council take proper public consultation before being allowed to close the public toilets. The petition states, “This will leave a blossoming trading area without public toilet facilities, especially in regard to disabled access, thus driving many shoppers to alternative shopping areas and endangering business to the Bath Road. It is unacceptable to make a closure of the facilities on Tuesday 31st March 2011, without discussion with residents, shoppers, disabled and traders. We therefore ask for the suspension of the closure.” st The petition was presented to the Cheltenham Borough Council on 21 March with hundreds of signatures from residents and traders.

Toilet closures were raised as part of the public consultation process as a way for the local Council to save money in response to the cut in Government grants. The Borough Council has said that they will be actively seeking to find alternative provisions for local toilets, possibly working with local businesses to enable public access to their facilities.

LEGLAG Update LEGLAG (Leckhampton Green Land Action Group) remain confident that they can succeed in stopping the proposed development of approximately 1300 houses in Leckhampton and Shurdington. A new ‘Joint Core Strategy’ is under development with Cheltenham and Tewkesbury Borough Council, which will replace the old Tewkesbury Local Plan. LEGLAG are working to try and ensure that this new Joint Core Strategy does not allocate land in Leckhampton and Shurdington for large-scale development. The petition that many local Leckhampton residents have signed is part of this campaign, and will soon be presented to Cheltenham and Tewkesbury Borough Councils. No further planning applications have been received as yet but in the meantime, LEGLAG are keen to increase their strength by recruiting more members. To join LEGLAG go to their website at: – where you will find membership application forms.

Please mention TheWorksLocal when responding to adverts Celebrate 21 Years of The Willow Trust with an afternoon Tea Cruise on the Gloucester – Sharpness Canal The Willow Trust has some exciting events lined up for 2011 – enjoy a relaxing afternoon cruising on one of their canal boats along the Gloucester – Sharpness canal. Not only will you be amazed by the wonderful countryside on this beautiful stretch of the canal, you will also be able to indulge in a scrumptious cream tea. It truly is a lovely experience. At the same time you will be supporting the Willow Trust charity. The tea cruises will take place monthly on a Saturday afternoon starting on 16th April 2011. Other events that they have lined up include a Fashion Show at the Dolphins Hall, th Tetbury on 8 April 2011. This event is being supported by the Tetbury Lions Club and the Cirencester branch of The Stroud and Swindon. If you like the idea of a canal cruise, then you may also be interested in their cruise with a jazz lunch which is taking place on Sunday 12th June 2011. The Willow Trust was formed in 1989 and is now into its 21st season. The Trust owns two specially built and equipped broad beamed canal boats moored at Saul Junction near Frampton on Severn. Spirit of Freedom II and Leonard Matchan are beautiful and distinctive with their bright red and dark green livery and are a familiar sight on the canal. The boats make it possible for disabled and seriously ill children and adults, with their carers, to experience and enjoy a day out on the water. For many of them, the facilities on the boats provide a rare opportunity to spend a day away from their usual surroundings. Some guests like to simply relax on the front deck and watch the world go by and others may like to be with the Skipper experiencing steering these large boats along the canal.

Both boats go out every weekday from the beginning of April to the end of October with groups of around 30 disabled guests and carers on each boat. The Willow Trust does not charge for these days out. The Trust is completely self funding and relies on the kindness of others to help keep the boats afloat. If you would like more information about the work of The Willow Trust, would like to make a donation, become a Friend or book tickets for any of their events, please contact them on 01285 651661 or email

Please mention TheWorksLocal when responding to adverts Bins, Bins And More Bins You may have noticed that your bins have been breeding recently. We now have our own Russian doll like set of green bins. A big one, a middle-sized one, and a baby one. Oh and an optional big brown one. And a green box. This is all part of the new recycling and refuse collection scheme introduced by the Cheltenham Borough Council from 4 April 2011. We thought it might be useful to recap on what each of your bins are used for and which bins get collected when. Small green waste caddie: this is for you to use inside your home to collect food waste in your kitchen. The caddies can be lined with newspaper, kitchen roll or compostable liners. Most food waste, cooked and uncooked should be collected here and then deposited to the larger caddie when it is full. Large green waste caddie: this will be collected every week and is to be used to collect the waste from the smaller waste caddie in your kitchen. This also can be lined with newspaper, kitchen roll or compostable liners. Both waste caddies can be washed clean and are dishwasher safe below 60°C. Largest green refuse bin: this will now be collected every other week and is to be used for all items that you are unable to recycle. Green recycling box: this will continue to be collected every other week. You can use your green recycling box to recycle the following: plastic bottles, mixed glass bottles and jars, food tins and drink cans, paper and cardboard. Brown garden waste bin: this is now an optional service that you can subscribe to for £36 a year. The brown bin is emptied fortnightly on the alternate week to your green recycling box. For more information on the new recycling and refuse collection scheme visit or call he waste and recycling helpline on 01242 264244.

WAR AND PEACE AT THE CIRCUS GIFFORDS CIRCUS 2011 The Giffords Circus company of actors, learned geese, tumbling pigeons, hawks, clowns, musicians and runaways will roll out a new show in 2011. The show titled ‘War and Peace at the Circus’ is another opportunity for Giffords Circus to show off their brilliant theatricality and glamorous take on the traditional village green circus. Expect thrilling scenes inspired by this epic Russian novel re-imagined for a family audience. New costumes, new choreography, new artistes, and an original score by the Giffords Circus band, as well as Giffords Circus favourites such as Brian the Goose, Tweedy the Clown and Red the Horse. The show is produced by Nell and Toti Gifford, written and directed by Irina Brown, with music by Sarah Llewellyn and choreography by Fleur Darkin. And as with every tour, Giffords Circus will travel across much of rural Gloucestershire and the South West with the show, bringing families and communities together to share in this magical circus experience. The tour will start on Thursday 19th May 2011 at Gloucester, travelling through Hay Festival, Cheltenham, Broadway, Tackley, Stadhampton, Lechlade, Barrington, Frampton, Minchinhampton, Marlborough; and ends in Cirencester’s Stratton Meadows on Sunday 11th February 2011. Giffords Circus was created in 2000 by Nell and Toti Gifford. Their intention was to create a small traditional circus company that would bring the magic of circus back to British audiences. Since then the pair have been touring with a troupe of performance artists, musicians, horses and wagons producing unique circus shows loved by all the family, young and old. Giffords Circus is now recognised as an “absolutely essential British summer experience”. In October 2010, Nell won the inaugural Groucho Club Maverick Award for her “contemporary and visionary” approach to circus performance. 2011 also welcomes back Circus Sauce, the unique forty-two seat travelling restaurant that is part of the circus on tour. After the show, we serve a starlit sumptuous dinner, using fresh seasonal and local ingredients, to the artistes and the audience. Circus Sauce is also open during intervals for freshly baked cakes, traditional ice-cream, teas, fruit drinks and other tasty refreshments. Tickets are £20 (adults) and £12 (under 16’s). You can find more details about shows at or book tickets by calling the Box Office on 0845 459 7469.
