Story

We are so blessed with stunning views of the Stroud Valleys here at Callowell. Since 1969, we have welcomed many visitors - from Princess Anne to Bobby Robson: Olympic and professional athletes to Baronesses and MPs! Many Circus animals frequented our adjacent field in the 1970s and more recently Callowell has buzzed with performances, presentations, displays, charity events, tournaments, sports, exercise and even wedding receptions! Callowell really has seen it all - from helicopter landings to hot air balloon landings - even mobile climbing walls and caves!

"What a lovely view!" A common phrase over the years......equally as common as the follow up comment... "If only your field was flat!"

Well - we are going to make it happen! At least, a small section of it. We do not want to change our unrivalled view - just make a small section level enough for the children to enjoy better quality activities - on grass! If we have any funds left, these will be used for grounds repairs and maintenance - even if we only have enough left for a box of grass seed! Nothing will be taken for granted...

We really hope you can help us - whatever you can spare is truly appreciated by our school community. Whether you can help or not...thank you for reading our story...

Wayne and the entire Callowell Team

    Correction on a previous post... Just a huge thanks to Ade from JEWSONS!!! and Paul from Barnwood Construction who have been out to advise us free of charge. Apologies for the error Ade Wayne Fun facts after measuring: The area has a 3.3 metre drop from corner to corner - with an average drop of 1.8 metres on the slope direction. Pythagoras + Tangent = useful maths!

    Message 2 of 2 Please if you haven't already, will you support us by sharing our cause - we have kept our target way below the actual cost as we will be relying on so much goodwill and people-power with the dig ('cut and fill' is the term)! If you could share our page it would be very appreciated! Thanks so much to you all for your generosity, even in difficult times, Have a great weekend! With much gratitude from our Callowell Team
