The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Project
Year 4 pupils presented a comprehensive presentation on how they portray Dunstable. What the good is, the bad and the ugly. They then went on to ask all those attending a series of questions around what we can do to promote and enhance the town. It was an enjoyable event which also allowed us to see the newly developed Forest Garden. Councillors Peter Hollick and Wendy Bater joined the event, along with David and Michelle from Dunstable Town Council. Huge thanks to Jack and Gill for their work in building the event and engaging with the young people of Dunstable.
Ashton St. Peters School Play
A fantastic school production by years 3 and 4. Amazing to see how this group of around 30 pupils all learnt their lines and confidently delivered their parts. The singing and the energy that came from it was first class!
High Sheriff Walk
Just under a three mile walk with the High Sheriff, Lady Jane, the Lord Lieutenant, Helen Nellis, Deputy Mayor of Ampthill and representatives from a number of Green and Open space organisations. It was a great opportunity to walk and talk and raise money for the Road Victims Fund.
Flame the Elephant Unveiling
A small gathering to officially welcome Flame the Elephant to Grove House Gardens and our town, generously donated by Councillor Alan Corkhill. Nikki Samsa from Keech Hospice attended and we followed up the unveiling with a cream tea from Priory House.
Eaton Bray Beavers
An excited room of 24 Beaver Scouts and leaders as they held their Jubilee Tea Party. Councillor Jones was involved from the outset with making a gold crown, taking part in musical chairs and helping to serve them their tea. Cllr. Jones answered lots of questions and gave some of them the opportunity to wear the Mayoral chain.
Town Mayor’s Charity Coffee Morning
A wonderful morning at Grove House for the Jubilee Coffee Morning. In excess of 50 people gave generously and left with a tummy full of goodness. Great to have representatives from two of the Mayor’s charities there. A little over £610 was raised.
Dunstable Town Bowls Club
A great chance to have a go at green bowling. Councillor Jones “isn’t the best of players” but had fun nonetheless, and enjoyed the opportunity to speak to the members who are doing their very best to generate new interest in the sport.
