We have two red and white
commercial grade pop-up gazebos
(each 3m x 4.5m) available for loan.
We ask for a returnable deposit,
otherwise hire is free to any any
organised Duxford club or society, although a donation
towards their maintenance will always be very welcome. They are also available for private events, although a small charge (towards maintenence/replacement) is made for this.
Repair of Duxford's parish clock
In just under a year the appeal to
repair the tower clock (at St Peter's)
to working order raised over
£17,000. This included a
Sharing Heritage grant from the
Heritage Lottery Fund that
enabled both the full restoration of the clock (including the long-silenced hour strike) and help to share this work, and the heritage of St Peter's and its clock, with the Duxford community. The Duxford Advent Trust was delighted to assist with the restoration.
The restored clock was dedicated on the centenary of the Armistice on Sunday 11 November 2018.
New event chairs for St John's!
St John's church is being used for an ever growing number of arts events and yet only has seating (in the c16th pews) for 40. This year the Duxford Advent Trust has purchased 40 brand new folding event chairs so that theatre and concert audiences can sit in comfort without the organisers having to borrow and transport seating.
The remit of the Duxford Advent Trust is to support community projects or group ventures that enhance quality of life in the Village. If you have a good idea that might fit this bill, please contact us with details.
