Thursday 12 September:  Date for your diaries.

Tracy Borman

Thanks to the Friends of Berkeley Castle from The Trustees of the Berkeley Castle Charitable Trust:

Extracts from a recent letter from the Chairman of the Trustees:  

"I think it is now quite noticeable what impact the cumulative work of the Friends has had on the Castle and its contents.  
In most rooms there is an item or items that have benefited from the generosity of the Friends and this, 
of course, extends outside of the main Castle building too.  

"In addition to the financial donations made towards tapestries, paintings, the sundial, gun carriages and other chattels, we are also enormously grateful for the voluntary work (undertaken by Friends) .......

"So much progress has been made in so many areas with Berkeley Castle in recent years and we Trustees are indebted to you, your committee and your members for the part that the Friends have played in that.   Please pass on my thanks."
