The Huish Episcopi Primary School
'A big thank you to all of our sponsors
At the inception of this website it was agreed that we should aim to generate sufficient funds, by way of including some paid for advertising to cover the running costs with also, hopefully, any surpluses being offered to local good causes. This proposal assumed the administration of our website would continue to be offered, as it has been to date, free of charge.
We are delighted to announce that the first of these hoped for funds has been presented to Huish Episcopi Primary School in the form of a cheque for £1,000, to be spent on additional computers for use in their ICT suite.
Information Communications Technology (ICT) is a popular subject with the children. Currently the experience is not as rewarding as it could be due to the number of pupils having to share each particular computer.
We hope that you will all be pleased that advertising your business on the Huish Episcopi Community Website has provided this additional benefit to Huish Episcopi Primary School's children.'
'From Gillian, the pupils, staff and Governors at the Huish Episcopi Primary'
To John and all of the Huish Episcopi website contributors.
Thank you very much indeed for your generous donation of £1,000 towards IT equipment.
On the advice of our technical support team, we have purchased four new laptops. This will make a big difference and enable all children in a class to use a laptop.
Thank you again.'
The Forget-me-not Memory Café
We are pleased to say that funds generated by the businesses who advertise on this website have enabled us, (the webmaster and me), to present cheques to these valuable local support groups who perform good work, week in, week out.
Our thanks to our advertisers for continuing to support the village website and by extension the good causes such as these herein.
We would like to thank you so much for the generous donation to the Forget-me-not Café, (Langport). This will go a long way to help us buy games and equipment to aid our clients with their memory issues. We are extremely grateful that you chose us as one of your beneficiaries of your 'not for profit' organisation.
We really appreciate that you (Webmaster) and Shirley came to visit the café on Tuesday, to see what we do and the lovely atmosphere we have at the Angel.
Thank you again, on behalf of the committee of the Forget-me-not Café (Langport),
“Your users should know what a fabulous website Huish has.”
Yours sincerely Christine Hampton Treasurer
The Ridgway Group
Thank you for your very generous donation, which has enabled us to buy a brand new Bingo game with 'slide bingo cards' which enable the clients to play the game very much easier.
Also we purchased a brand new Picture Card game and 3 sets of cd's which help stimulate memories. These items will help make our afternoons even more fun, so thank you again.
Donation to the Annie Tite Fund.
This year's (2017) donation from the Huish Episcopi Community Website account has been prompted by the realisation that the funds available to the Annie Tite Fund have suffered in recent years due to the very low levels of interest rates upon which it depends.
The aim of the Trust is to provide funds for young people undertaking higher education and also young women marrying. To qualify, the applicants must write to the Trustees outlining why they are applying for the grant and confirming that they have been born in the Parish of Huish Episcopi or the Town of Langport. They are also required to provide updates to the Trustees on their progress.
The Trustees meet annually in the late autumn to assess applications and distribute the grants.
Anyone wishing to apply for a grant should contact the Annie Tite Fund Trustee/secretary Mrs Michèle Crumb, Email - firstname.lastname@example.org or via facebook page.
This donation would not be possible but for the businesses that choose to advertise their services on the Huish Episcopi Community Website, they do this to promote their services but also in the knowledge that their contributions will in large part support worthy causes in our area.
