What an amazing few weeks! Ruth and I were interviewed by Spire FM and they broadcast our interview in the news bulletins all morning last Wednesday. The Salisbury Journal are very interested, and they've also got the story and the beautiful bluebell photo which may very well be published next week - keep your eyes peeled! Also the magazine Salisbury Life are interested in talking to us too - Hollywood next?
I spoke to Salisbury Racecourse this week and they are thrilled to offer their location for one of the shoots, and have even said that we can have their Race Day on 28th September to sell the calendar and go round with collection buckets! Steve and Sarah Dixon have very kindly offered to lend us one of their racehorses for the shoot - thank you! Hope to see you all there with your race cards!
Went to have a look at the bridal suite at the Red Lion yesterday - complete with four poster bed - but I'll say no more!
A huge thank you to all the members of the Lions Head Art Group who hosted a fund raising morning for us today. Coffee and beautiful home-made cakes, a raffle, paint-along with George, portrait sketches done by Fiona (I had mine done too - it's very well done), and home-made cards. The special touches were very much appreciated - pink roses on the tables, pink serviettes and even pink ribbons for us all to wear - thank you for your thoughtfulness. Haven't counted all the money yet, but we think it's in the region of £180! Thank you to everyone who came and supported us.
And finally, another date for your diary - Saturday 11th June - Italian meal at the Lord Nelson. Mine host Roger Stanwell has generously offered to donate all the profits from the evening's meal. And you'll even be waited on by some of the calendar girls! More details later, and definitely in the Parish Magazine. Thank you Roger.
