At last night’s Council meeting, the Town Mayor Cllr Tim Ward presented a grant aid cheque of £500 to Mr Roger Bettle to support a season of classical music concerts by Avon Valley Concerts.

Mr Bettle thanked the Council on behalf of all the members and audiences.

With the help of this funding, Avon Valley Concerts was able to stage concerts of quality classical music with some of the best performers in the country and from overseas.

He was pleased to report that the group would be continuing and audience figures were on the increase.
