Hazelhurst Summer Fete

Thanks to everyone who helped make this day a success. Everyone who donated, supported, organised and ran the stalls. We are pleased that we had such a great turn out and we are happy to record that we made £890.30 on the day. We still have a few collections which should put us at around £1000 when everything is collected. We had several orders for our Bird Houses and we will be filling these orders as soon as possible. Our soap sells are doing well also..we just produced our newest fragrance (Pink Lemonade) and this can be purchased from our Residents Shop here at Hazelhurst. The residents have also donated a bird house and some soap and decoupage bottles to Whitegate's for their raffle on Saturday. We hope that everyone enjoyed themselves and to everyone involved Thank you from the Residents and Staff at Hazelhurst.

Local Author visits Coldwells House

Louise James visited Coldwells House to talk about her new book "A Rough Kind Of Magic" which is set in the Black Mountains that separate Herefordshire and Wales. Louise has also written "The Blackberry Picker" and Wild Geese and Unicorns two novels that follow the story of a group of children before, through and after the 2nd World War.

Coldwells Residents visit Hereford Cathedral

Some of the residents of Coldwells House visited Hereford Cathedral for lunch, the residents enjoyed looking around and looking at the newly commissioned stained glass window.
The Special Air Service has a unique relationship with our cathedral, city, county and diocese, as most communities in Herefordshire have someone who is serving (or has served) in the Regiment, has family links with it, or supports its members or its work. To honour and celebrate this relationship, the SAS Regimental Association commissioned the internationally-renowned artist John Maine RA to create a new sculpture and stained-glass window for Hereford Cathedral to mark the seventy-fifth anniversary of the foundation of the SAS in 1941.
Many thanks to all the family volunteers
