We’re delighted to hear that Bath Soft Cheese, made by hand in Kelston, was this month declared supreme champion in the 2019 UK & Ireland Artisan Cheese Awards. It also won Gold in the ‘Organic’ category, judged against more than 400 cheeses from across the British Isles.

Another superb eco trend from Sweden (reports Reuters). Plocka (to pick up, eg litter) plus jogging makes plogging.
The Bathscape advisory group sharing ideas about how best to preserve and enhance the landscape surrounding the city in a meeting held at Bath CC.
The Bathscape project is great forum to meet across disciplines, overcome suspicion and misunderstandings. Kelston Roundhill lies within the Bathscape area. The project promises a range of benefits including improved grasslands and flower-rich meadows, 30 assessed and managed view points, greater numbers of volunteers and visitors and a walking festival.
Our input to the meeting: first do no harm. Let’s not municipalise our rural countryside. Let’s include the sacred dimension, art and storytelling. Also we must work hard towards diversity (see pic above #QED).

Kelston Records is putting on the first Concert for Aural Diversity (6 July at the Old Barn on Kelston Roundhill).
A concert for aural diversity entails music specially composed and performed for people with different states of hearing, including various stages of deafness.
Andrew Hugill talks about Menieres disease, deafness and work for aural diversity in a short film made by GN Resound.
It’s a project by the composer Andrew Hugill, recently of Bath Spa University. Prof Hugill himself suffers from deafness and other symptoms associated with Meniere’s disease. The programme is supported by the specialist Danish hearing aid supplier GN Resound.
We look forward to welcoming composer, musicians and guests to this important event, and look forward to helping make it a beautiful and memorable occasion.
