A CHARITY concert was held in Wellington on Saturday in aid of Nynehead Church and Nynehead Village Hall. 

Taunton MP Rebecca Pow, deputy mayor of Taunton Vivienne Stock-Williams, former Mayor Dave Durdan and a host of other local figures and supporters flocked to Nynehead Court on Saturday to enjoy a Charity Concert.

The event was held in aid of Nynehead Church and Nynehead Village Hall, with entertainment from Wellington School musicians who performed ‘A Young Musicians Showcase’, the John Paul Jazz Trio, Taunton Deane Morris Men, and local act Malcolm the Magician.

Guests were given a hamper of produce from local suppliers and were able to enhance their cultural evening by viewing the free art exhibition in the Orangery.

They were also treated to a preview of some of sculptures which will form part of Nynehead Court’s Sculpture Park, which is due to open in Spring 2016.

A total of five sculptures had been installed in time for the concert, with many more due to arrive over the coming months.

Angela Watkins, manager of Nynehead Court, said: “It was wonderful to see so many people in the grounds enjoying our concert.

"We would like to thank everyone for attending, and hope that they will visit us again when the sculpture park is open.

"We would also like to thank our musicians, magician and Morris Men for providing the entertainment, and the many suppliers who donated raffle prizes.”
