talk in Brent Knoll raises funds for good causes
Knoll Parish Hall and the Children's Hospice South West have both
benefited following a successful fundraising talk by a former
head teacher earlier this month.
Brian Freestone, pictured on the far right, recounted several
amusing anecdotes during his talk, entitled 'Crumbs from the Headmaster's
Table', which were based on his experiences as a headmaster in
Bristol and Somerset. The event, held in Brent Knoll Parish Hall
on February 5th, also included a meal.
"Brian's entertaining and highly amusing recollections provided
a great conclusion to a memorable evening following a delicious
meal," one of the organisers, John Page, told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
