Support for Three Local Charities

At the January meeting of the Society Executive Team the members voted in favour of granting funds to three local charities.

The Bromsgrove Festival was awarded a grant of £1000 towards the operational costs of Bromsgrove’s vibrant festival which will run from Thursday 21st June to Sunday 22nd July in 2018. The Festival begins at Artrix with an opening concert and concludes in St John’s Church with the Orchestra of St John’s Festival of Music. Throughout the month long festival many local organisations and societies arrange events, concerts and happenings for the benefit of the Bromsgrove community. Events are held at a number of venues around the town, and in the High Street on Saturday’s during the Festival. The Bromsgrove Society’s Summer School is held during the Festival period and will be promoted as a Festival Event. To find out more about the Bromsgrove Festival and see all the events visit the website www.bromsgrovefestival.co.uk or look out for a festival brochure.

In July 2012 Avoncroft Museum rescued a 19th Century nailer’s cottage with stood at 79 Old Birmingham Road, Lickey End, Bromsgrove. In 1861 it was the home and workshop of nail maker Thomas Crump. The cottage reflects the change in fortune of the nailing industry in Bromsgrove and remains mostly unaltered since the final development in the 1930’s. The original 1930’s fireplace which formed the heart of the cottage living area is in need of full refurbishment to converse it and bring it back to full working order to create a living history experience for visitors to Avoncroft Museum. The Bromsgrove Society’s £2500 grant will enable this work to happen, helping to preserve our history and enhance the visitor experience. Avoncroft is open to the public and for private functions.

Eleven Scouts from the Bromsgrove District, aged 14 to 17, have been selected to go the World Scouting Jamboree in North America in 2019 and the Bromsgrove Society are thrilled to be able to support the pre-event training requirements with a grant of £1000 to the Hereford & Worcester County Scouts. The young people are away for three weeks at the Jamboree, with 25 other British Scouts, and it is an important part of the experience to get to know each other before the trip and to attend training camps to prepare them for the activities at the Jamboree. Members of the Society will be able to attend a presentation by the Scouts to hear all about their experience at the Jamboree.
