Message Update from Louise Ronan: Caitin's Stars - Gone but not forgotten

posted 16 Mar 2017, 08:35 by M Bain   [ updated 28 Mar 2017, 06:03 ]

Dear All,
Some of you may have been aware from chatting to me or through others that Caitlin wrote and completed a play in August 2016 during her drama lessons with Pippa Henry. Caitlin’s One Act Play was put on by Pippa Henry and Wellington Heath Amateur Dramatics Society junior members on Friday night 24 March at Wellington Heath Village Hall as well as a musical celebration of her life from Caitlin (via recordings), and performances from her friends and the John Masefield High School Chamber Choir. In addition one of her carers, Caroline Green, who has written and illustrated  a small book 'Caitlin and Misty - A Tale of Comfort and Friendship' (sneak preview of a couple of the pages are attached below) read the poem from the book beautifully for us and gave an insight into why she wrote the book. The illustrations of Caitlin and Misty are gorgeous and copies are available to buy from us (and can be signed and dedicated to you personally by Caroline). The cost is £6 and all profits after covering the printing costs will be given to the Graeae Theatre Company. Kevin Walsh and Jodi Bickerton from Graeae kindly came along to support the event and explained more about their amazing work. They were delighted with the whole evening and couldn't believe the acting and musical talent in Ledbury. 

We put on the show in particular to say a huge thank you to all of Caitlin’s carers/teachers and medical professionals and also to show them Caitlin's dramatic and musical talents which they heard so much about.

It was not possible to invite the majority of our friends to the Memorial Hall performance so we are putting on a 2nd performance to be held on Thursday 4th May at John Masefield High School at 7pm where there will be a proper box office and anyone who would like to come can book tickets.

Tickets can be booked through the following link: http://www.positickets.com/eventdetails.php?EventID=2488#.WNJgn7FFC1u
The ticket charges are £5 for Adults and £3 for Students/Children,
All profits made from the performances are going to the Caitlin's Stars fundraising charity 'The Graeae Theatre Company'.

Through all your generous support I am delighted to say we have raised over £6,400 to date.

If anyone has any other questions regarding the night or would like to purchase a book please call or text me on 01531 630005/07572 039411 or email me on seanronan676@gmail.com.

Thanks again for everyone’s continued support and I really hope to see many of our friends at John Masefield High School on the 4th May.

Best wishes

Louise Ronan

The Neighbourhood Development Plan: Make Your Views Known

posted 20 Nov 2016, 02:54 by M Bain   [ updated 19 Jan 2017, 12:29 ]

 A parish briefing and consultation event  “Housing - Where and Why”- Latest News was held in the Memorial Village Hall on Saturday 10 December.

For those who were unable to attend the event, you can still make your views known
by filling in a response form and either posting it in the Memorial Village Hall letter box or giving it to one of the Neighbourhood Plan Working Group Members before end January 2017.

The issues on which we would like your views are:
  • The strategic gap between Ledbury and Wellington Heath
  • The selected allocated development sites
  • The Wellington Heath settlement boundary
  • The green space proposals for Wellington Heath ( essentially areas within the settlement boundary which will be protected from development).
  • Any comments you may have on the current draft of the Neighbourhood Plan
Papers explaining these issues are available on the NDP website:Explanatory Papers.
There is also a comment sheet which you can download.

In future the working group will be using the Neighbourhood Development Plan Website as its primary means of distributing information so please check it out: https://sites.google.com/site/whnpwg/home
