ASCOT BRASS | THE FUTURE

Ascot Brass a 30 piece concert Brass Band, who are now in their 14th successful year, we are a registered charity and perform many concerts for good causes. However, the band members have agreed it is time we should be putting on our own concert, with selected soloists, and excellent choirs, so we are exploring the best method of seeking a single sponsor or a number of sponsors. Naturally, maximum exposure would be in evidence at each concert.

Any individuals, or companies that enjoy the sound of a good brass band, and can help us in our objective, please email malcolm@surefootservices.co.uk <mailto:malcolm@surefootservices.co.uk

To discuss its potential.

CHRISTMAS LUNCH at Mill Ride Golf Club, December 12th 2018

Ascot Inner Wheel  celebrated its 53rd anniversary in 2016, and is a member of the Association of Inner Wheel Clubs which are part of the family of Rotary.

They meet monthly on the fourth Wednesday evening at Mill Ride Golf Club, in Ascot, to enjoy dinner and often, a speaker or presentation. If there is a fifth Wednesday in the month, we join with Ascot Rotary for dinner and a speaker.

There are usually two major fund-raising events a year, together with Inner Wheel Day in January. Other events include trips to gardens, the theatre and other venues.

The three objects of Inner Wheel are very simple. They are to promote true friendship, encourage the ideals of personal service and to foster international understanding. Inner Wheel is a caring organisation, not only to its members, but also to others outside its circle.

Friendship is the core of all that is done and achieved by members of Inner Wheel. Wherever there is an Inner Wheel Club, no matter in which country, you are made very welcome. Friendship and fun abounds as members work together to help others less fortunate than themselves, not only in this country, but overseas.

Membership is open to all women who share in our ideals of service and friendship. We offer a valuable outlet for women of like mind who are searching for a way to provide voluntary service.

The Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) is one of 47 Wildlife Trusts working across the UK to achieve the shared aim of securing a better future for wildlife.

BBOWT was founded in 1959 (as the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Naturalist Trust -  BBONT) by local ecologists who could see the extent of harm being done to the wonderfully rich natural environment of the three counties. For over 50 years we have worked with local people to make Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire richer in wildlife.

BBOWT currently has about 54,000 members and more than 1,300 active volunteers. It is thanks to our members and volunteers that we are able to keep going - we do not receive any core governmental funding. Our income comes from a range of sources including grants, legacies, business support and charitable trusts donations, but most important of all are our membership subscriptions......
