- Jeremy Seal Zoom Talk March 7th 2021
Local author Jeremy Seal returns to give a talk via Zoom on his latest book ‘A Coup In Turkey’. The talk will take place via Zoom on March 7th 2021 from 14:30pm-15:30pm.
Jeremy’s last talk about his experiences canoeing down the River Meander across Turkey was extremely popular. His latest talk will address democracy, despotism and vengeance in a divided Turkey.
The talk is free but as this event is in support of the St. Stephen’s Millennium Green we would be very grateful if you could make a £5 per person donation.
In order to receive the Zoom details for this event you need to register.
- The Millennium Green Lottery Launched
The new St. Stephen’s Millennium Green Lottery has been launched. Participating in the Lottery is an additional way to support the Millennium Green.
A draw will be held every month with 50% of ticket sales revenue going towards the monthly prize and 50% going towards the upkeep of the Green. The goal is to have at least 100 monthly tickets sold at £2 per ticket which would give a monthly prize of £100. The more tickets sold the larger the monthly prize.
Lottery participants pay by annual standing order purchasing a minimum of one £2 monthly ticket at an annual cost of £24. More than one monthly ticket may purchased at an annual cost of £48 for two monthly tickets, £72 for three monthly tickets etc.
The first monthly draw will be held on 7th March 2021.

- Mary Ede Retires As A Trustee
After over 20 years Mary Ede has decided to retire as a Trustee of the St. Stephens’s Millennium Green Trust.
Mary has been involved with the Millennium Green from its very early days and was one of the group of people who worked hard to preserve the Millennium Green and the St. Stephen’s Allotments from the hands of developers.
As well as serving as a Trustee for many years Mary has also supported many of the Millennium Green fund raising events. In particular Mary did much to support the Lansdown Open Gardens which has become a well-established annual event for the local community.
In the accompany picture Mary can be seen second from the left at the front alongside Ede family members on the occasion of the Ede family donation of the sundial to the Millennium Green.
- Jam & Chutney Sale On The Green – Dec 9th
The Jam & Chutney sale on the Millennium Green held on Dec 9th was a great success. All the products were sold out after 40 minutes and £183 was raised towards the upkeep of the Millennium Green.
Many thanks to Jackie Harris for organising the sale and to Brenda Bridgeman, Mary Ede and Bridget Carter for supplying jams and chutneys. Thanks also to everyone who bought products to help support the Millennium Green.
