Music on the Cliffs - 2019
This year £1000 was raised for The Eleanor Foundation for their water wells in Tanzania and £896.20 for our funds which almost doubled last year's event.
There was a great atmosphere for this Guernsey themed event, people enjoyed their picnics seated on hay bales in the sunshine and listened to sea shanties and folk music played by local bands.
Peter Rabbit came along and Guernsey cattle, donkeys and goats were on view and there a chance to learn some Guernsey Patois at a workshop. Le Hechet ice-creams, coffee, cakes and hedge veg were for sale.
There was face-painting for the youngsters, who came free.
The use of the three fields was courtesy of Keith and John Tostevin and Michael Bray, one field for the event and two for parking, and road access was one way on the day. The views were outstanding, and the performers said it was a perfect spot. We had sponsorship for the gazebos, toilets, and road signs.
Music on the Cliffs - 2018
On Sunday afternoon 15th July 2018, more than 100 adults and children enjoyed live entertainment in a field below Le Prevôté tower. The event was fundraising for Floral Forest and Autism Guernsey, the latter highlighting their continued sponsorship from Children in Need by having Pudsey Bear there to greet the children. Peter Rabbit came along too, as well as the Lieutenant Governor Sir Ian Corder and Lady Corder.
Performers Chris Taylor on guitar, The Vraic Gatherers and GU10 encouraged people to join in with the singing. People brought their picnics and soft drinks, and cakes were available to purchase.
Autism Guernsey did face-painting and pebble painting with the youngsters, who came free.
