School Concert at Rougham Church


The trust is making a big difference to the school and the community and local people realize this, and there is a solid foundation on which to keep building. There is virtually no state funding for music education: the concert yesterday would never have happened without the trust's funding.

Rougham Hall security fence

It will protect people from injury from falling masonary, protect the building from theft of building materials and prevent any further damages made by vandals.
