The setting was perfect, on the evening of 6th July, as the Alscot Estate XI played cricket against the Birmingham Property Professionals “All Stars” XI. Having won the toss the Estate put the opposition into bat and proceeded to put in place damage limitation as the “All Stars” hit 4s and 6s for fun! Despite some excellent fielding from all players (and some not quite so good catching) the All Stars managed to race along at just under 10 an over to post a formidable total of 191 in ...20 overs. Following a quick break the Estate’s reply started steadily and, despite a couple of quick wickets, solid innings from the middle order saw a brief glimmer of hope for the Estate XI. A fairy-tale victory was, however, never on the cards and some tight bowling ensured that the Estate were kept to a respectable but losing total of 110 in their 20 overs. Overall a disappointing result but an enjoyable evening!
Over 60 members of respective local history groups and societies were welcomed at Alscot Park in June by Emma Holman-West and Lieutenant Colonel George West. The groups experienced a guided tour of Alscot Park followed by a leisurely tour of the stunning garden and parkland.

There was a variety of interesting and relevant speakers, and land agents took part in a tour across the Estate where pit-stops had been arranged in order to show the diversity of the Estate land.

It was an absolute privilege yesterday to host such a special evening with David Le Page and the Orchestra of The Swan. The special recording of Vivaldi's Four Seasons was performed at Alscot Park by the orchestra in front of an intimate audience, who are kindly sponsoring the CD to support Stratford Hospital Cancer & Eye Ward Appeal. CD available to buy for £10 http://www.orchestraoftheswan.org/shop/four-seasons/
ORCHESTRA of the Swan, along with soloist David Le Page, are to make a live recording of Vivaldi’s masterpiece The Four Seasons to raise money for the Stratford Cancer and Eye Hospital Appeal.
The recording by the Stratford-based orchestra is being sponsored by a consortium of 15 local businesses, many of whom are part of www.SupportingStratford.co.uk, a crowdfunding community initiative led by DCS Group chief executive Denys Shortt.
The recording will take place at Alscot Park, a grade I listed mansion just outside Stratford, and all proceeds will go to the new £22million Stratford Hospital which will provide vital cancer and eye care for people in the district.
The appeal is aiming to raise £1million to provide everything from specialist chemotherapy chairs to iPads for the state-of-the-art new unit.
Mr Shortt said: “I had the idea for this CD after listening to David Le Page with the Orchestra of the Swan which was an amazing experience.”
“I am so grateful to these local businesses who have made this CD recording possible. Their help means that 100 per cent of the sale proceeds of the CD will be donated to the Stratford Hospital Appeal.”
The 15 sponsoring businesses are DCS, Enable, Alscot Estate, George Pragnall, Wheaton & Lamb NFU Mutual, Tappex, Perfect Personnel, Valpak, John Holman & Sons, Pertemps, Guy Salmon Land Rover, Murphy Salisbury, Barclays, Colgate, and Gillette.
The CD will be released before Christmas. Visit www.orchestraoftheswan.org/shop to buy and for further details.
