Sculpture flows overflows Shed interior

Our second annual sculpture exhibition is now open to the public, with works spilling out on to the area around the Goods Shed.

Twenty-three sculptors are showing this year, as well as Tetbury-based painter Nicola Clark.

By the third day of the three week show, four pieces and two paintings had already been bought by vistors including one by Cheltenham sculptor Myra Murby who was exhibiting her work for the first time.

The show is open every day from 10.30am to 5pm.

Dozens of artworks fill Tetbury's Victorian-era railway Goods Shed at the exhibition.

 

Cohen's Pharmacy makes £723 donation

To celebrate thirty five years in the pharmacy business, Cohen’s Pharmacy (who are located in Romney House Surgery in Tetbury) promised to double any fund raising efforts in their branches up to £350. 

During the summer, Cohen's staff in Tetbury have been raising money. Manager Mark Hills even gave the appeal the cash he raised taking part in the very wet Tetbury fun run in August. 

Thanks to the team's efforts and the generosity of their customers, Cohen's raised a grand total of £373.67, which was matched by £350 kindly donated by the company head office.

Caroline Morgan, Treasurer of Tetbury Rail Lands Regeneration Trust, is pictured receiving a cheque for £723.67 from Mark Hills. She thanked all the staff and in particular Mark, for their support of the Goods Shed. 

Cohen's contribution is a big boost to the fundraising effort needed to turn the Victorian goods shed into a new arts centre for the town and surrounding area. Thanks to the enthusiastic support and generosity of people in the area, the Trust has raised over £30,000 in the last 20 months. Together with pledges by Tetbury Town Council and funding bodies, this means we are closing in on our target for rebuilding and reopening the building in 2016.

 

Sue Stoner

Words cannot express our sadness at the news that Sue Stoner passed away at Leckhampton Court hospice on Friday 17 July.

The funeral will be at St Mary's Church, Tetbury, at 3pm on Wednesday 29 July.

Sue was a force of nature, who fought against her final illness as tenaciously as she fought, for two decades, to realise her vision of creating a lively arts and entertainment venue for our whole community at the Goods Shed.

It's a testament to Sue's ability to inspire and persuade others that the Arts Centre project has gathered the support and funding needed to bring it to the threshold of fulfillment.

Our thoughts are with Sue's family and loved ones at this time. 

Mad Hatter's Tea Party

Goodness me! Is that the time?

Preparations are in full swing for Saturday's tea party and fun dog show at Tetbury Goods Shed. 

This is the 'hat shop' where kids from one to 101-years-old can try on loads of silly or stylish hats under the watchful eye of our six-foot-tall White Rabbit.

There will be plenty of Alice in Wonderland-themed party games for kids to enjoy, including croquet, a Caucus Race and musical chairs.

Free entry

Entry is free so the friends of the Goods Shed are laying on lashings of scrummy strawberry teas to raise money for the Arts Centre project, which is getting ever closer to its target. Wear a hat and bring a healthy appetite! 

As well as fun, games, hats and teas, there'll be a silver band and a selection of stalls selling lovely and unusual craft and fashion items.

Dog Show

Four-legged friends of all shapes and sizes will be warmly welcomed to the fun dog show running next to the Shed. It's strictly light hearted so do come one down and see who's got the shortest legs, loudest bark or best costume. Entry is only £1 per class, payable on the day. You can enter on the day or download the entry form to fill out and bring with you.

Don't miss it!

The fun starts at 2pm when the Shed doors open and registration starts for the Dog Show. If you're not sure how to get to the Shed, head for the Royal Oak pub on Cirencester Road, Tetbury, and turn through the white gates next to it to the free car park. The Shed is right next to the car park
