A WINE and cheese event held at and in aid of Chard Museum raised £260.

Trustee Linda Piggott-Vijeh, who donated the wine, gave an entertaining talk, She Came, She Slept, She Criticised.

She said: “What is great about these events is that it doesn’t matter which political party people support, we all come together to support local causes like the museum.

“I’m sure most people turned out to sample the great food provided by Mary Wardell, who is a fabulous cook, rather than to listen to me.”
