CHRISTMAS was very different for many of us this year.
A lot of the family and community activities were different or did not happen, but the Friends of Fairford & Lechlade Communities will continue to support the communities throughout the rest of the festive season and beyond.
If you would like to make a donation to the Friends, you can do so online through the website: www.friendsoffairford.org.uk or by sending cheques made out to ‘Friend Fairford’ and posting to Ms Andrena Miles, AMM Bookkeeping and Accountancy, 2nd floor, 11 High Street, Fairford GL7 4AD.
Information on what we do can be found on our website: www.friendsoffairford.org.uk and the names of our existing team of trustees are listed on the Charity Commission’s website.
CHARLOTTE Bull, 13, loves the all-singing, all-dancing Cirencester Creative Dance Academy (CCDA), which started in 1997 and teaches ballet, modern theatre technique, tap, jazz, street, urban and hip-hop styles, musical theatre (acting, singing and dance), contemporary dance, cheerleading and acrobatic dance.
Asked which was her favourite type of dance, Charlotte said: “I can’t choose. I love them all!”
Classes will be held – when safe to do so – at Fairford Primary School, in the Bingham Hall and Stratton Village Hall, Cirencester and Fenton’s Community Centre in South Cerney.
