This group came about because of the great success of the Artweeks Café and plant sale. In the past the artweek group consisted of mainly village artists but as the years have gone on the demographic has changed and now only about 10% of the artists come from the village. So, where in the past the decision as to who benefited from the proceeds of the Artweeks Café and plant sale was made by the artists, now we need folk who know the village and its needs to make that decision.
Our aim is to decide year on year where the money goes from the profit at artweeks. This is kept flexible and is the group’s decision. Key to the decision is - money to be spent in the village.
Our aspirations are that the Village Fund will enable more to happen in the village, more people to get involved and the assets the village have be improved or added to. If you have an idea, want some money to start up a village project, a sports group, a social group, can think of something the village needs please get in touch with any of the group named above, or email the newsletter.
