The Sheep Shed Gig
“Lambing is over. The shed is empty. It’s our turn in the shed now.” That was how Mike and Helen Simpson arrived at the idea of running the Sheep Shed Gig. So on Saturday 3rd June, with a little help from their friends at Colwall Rotary Club and St Andrew’s Church, they will be transforming their barn at Grove House Farm, Guralford to provide an evening of fun and entertainment.
Music will be provided by well know Country Band “Bones”. You can dance or simply sit and enjoy.
There will be a pay bar, but the Pig Roast and Cold Buffet are included in the ticket price of £20.
Proceeds from the evening will be divided between the Bridge Education Centre in Hanley Swan, Acorns and other Rotary Charities.
The Bridge Training and Development is a land-based alternative education provider at Hanley Swan, near Malvern in Worcestershire. It was established in 2007 with the aim of engaging children and young people in learning.
Sue and Neil Hornby are both Directors of the Bridge and had the vision to set up a training and development centre to provide alternative learning opportunities for young people.
They provide education and training to young people for whom for whatever reason main stream education has been unsuccessful - individual bespoke students from primary schools, secondary schools and care homes, groups of students from primary schools, groups of students from secondary schools on vocational courses and post 16 year olds who are on an Education Health Care Plan and have access to additional funding.
They offer qualifications and certificates in land-based studies (animal care and horticulture), construction, employability, skills for working life, Maths and English, food hygiene, bespoke timetable of courses and a wide range of curriculum activities and support for young people through transition on to different schools and training or employment.
Most importantly they build young people's personal, social and emotional development.
