Just before half-term, the team from the Azure Charitable Trust arrived at KEVI to begin the challenging work of helping to restore the school grounds.
Eight Horticultural trainees and their staff spent two days working with our Grounds men Michael Airries and Liam. KEVI Alumni Alan Davison, joined in as one of our Botanical Garden Steering Group members too. One of the tasks this time was to make a difference to the school’s woodlands. The team spent their time clearing back the Cherry Laurels, making the pathway walkable and by the end of the two days, the woodlands looked a hundred times better. We are tremendously grateful to the whole team for all their hard work and look forward to working with them in the future too.

This year’s musical is Sweet Charity and is on from 12th – 14th March.
Have you ever known a girl who wanted something so badly that she tried too hard to get it? Meet Charity, the girl who wants to be loved so much that she has lost sight of who she is. Charity sings, dances, laughs and cries her way through life, falling for every man who pays her some attention along the way.
Charity is a dance hall hostess – and it is in her workplace of the Fandango ballroom that her streetwise ‘companions’ share their cynical advice about love and occasionally their long abandoned dreams.
Charity’s “real” chance for happiness comes when the fickle finger of fate traps her in an elevator with a claustrophobic tax accountant (Oscar Lindquist) who also seems to be in search of… “something”.
Every character encountered in this 1960s New York, is interesting. Every person has their own story…and every individual has their own destiny. This is a bright and sophisticated show in every sense.
Tickets will be on sale from the week after half term and are £9 for adults and £5 for students.
