Welcome to Gaunts House
And a special Hello and Thank you to all those who came to our Summer Get Together earlier in the month. Although it was rather smaller than in previous years and there probably wasn’t so much going on, the general feeling was that it was a relaxed, quiet and peaceful gathering of like-minded souls who were able to come together and chill out in this wonderful part of Dorset. We very much appreciate the input from workshop leaders, band members, therapists, volunteers and everyone else who made the gathering possible. (Volunteers, please let us know in good time if you would like to come back again next year).
The good news is that we are beginning to plan for next year so here are the dates, in good time, for your diary: Thursday 6th – Sunday 9th August, the usual four days and as always, the second weekend in August. There will be an eclectic mix of music, workshops for adults and children, teenagers’ programme, therapies and next year, more food outlets to cater for every taste. Our new Courtyard Coffee Shop will be open as will the Tulip Tree Café offering snacks throughout the day. Accommodation will be available in the main house and stable block on a room and breakfast basis and there will be masses of camping space in the Cedar Field, as in previous years.
Tickets will be available for the four days or a weekend ticket from 6.00 pm on Friday. Camping will be available from 3.00 pm on Wednesday. (There would be an additional charge for anyone arriving earlier than this ). Residential accommodation will be available for a minimum of four nights, either Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday night or Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Additional nights will be charged as extra. (A full tariff will be posted on the web site in the following weeks).
This year we didn’t hand out ‘Feedback Forms’ but we would welcome any constructive comments from anyone who could spare the time to jot down how they found this year’s gathering and let us have them, either on Facebook or by email. We plan next year’s Gathering to be FABULOUS so don’t forget the dates – book Gaunts House in your diaries and we will hope to see you, together with the sunshine next August.
Best wishes from
Everyone at Gaunts House.
