There are now twelve girls in the home aged between five and fifteen years. They live as a family and have settled happily. It is a joy to see them playing and laughing as all children should. They attend the local village school which is within easy walking distance, further down the hillside. The girls will benefit from the organic fruit and vegetables grown, and will also learn valuable practical skills necessary for when they have homes and families of their own.
TNT would especially like to thank Caroline Spindlow for all her hard work in organising the Carol Trail and of course, everyone who made such wonderful displays and all those who actually took part. It was wonderful to see so many people joining in the Spirit of Christmas as they sang the carols.
The winner of the trail competition was Wendy Gibbon and Ash Galloway, who received the festive hamper.
The winner of the best display was Jonathan Grew with Whilst Shepherds Watched their Flocks by night – a wonderful display in front of the “Green Field” complete with real sheep.
Best window displays were Phillipa Cox with: 'Do you hear what I hear?' and Ellen Nutall with: Silent Night.
Finally a big thank you to staff at Costcutters, Market Lavington Post Office and David Coxhead for displaying and distributing the trail leaflets and collecting the money.
The total raised for the Nestling Trust was £315 - our grateful thanks to all.
