Well, 2020 is drawing to a close and, of course, it has been a very challenging year!

The Goods Shed and the Whistle Stop Café have had to play a game of ‘Will We? Won’t We?’ in terms of opening but we have made the best of it and I have to say that our teams have done really well in the circumstances. Sasha, Catherine and their team have managed to surpass expectations and have made the Café THE place to come for refreshments; their cakes have been a triumph!

Nick, Kathryn and TGS’s team of volunteers have been battling to provide events at the Goods Shed against all the odds. Despite setbacks by lockdowns and Tier rules, the Shed has proved to be ever-more popular and the events we have put on have been enthusiastically attended.

With reduced audience capacity, we are not getting the income we need, but we are just about surviving. We hope that as we move into 2021 we will be able to get back to some kind of norm and offer an expanding variety of events and activities to attract the people of Tetbury and the surrounding areas and to give them all a special experience!

Thank you for your continued support. Best wishes for Christmas – Stay Safe!

Richard Warrington; Chair of Trustees.
