Nottingham Music Shop, Windblowers of Derby Road, in conjunction with Generation Music Ltd have donated 150 flageolets to local school children in Carlton. The school had organised a week of events culminating in an assembly, during which the flageolets were presented by Margaret and David, of Windblowers. The Nottingham Evening Post covered the event and their report appears below.
Becky Jarvis, from the school, was thrilled that the children could take something home from the week and hopes that they will continue to play music!

'Whistle for it'
Children from Carlton Central Infant & Nursery School were given penny whistles by Windblowers in conjunction with Generation Music Ltd. 156 penny whistles - one for each child - were presented to the school by Margaret Frogson & David Oldershaw, of Windblowers, during a special assembly. Children had enjoyed a school music week, with infants joining junior school children to create instruments, write songs, sing, and perform - they even had their own music festival in the school fields, where they put up tents.

Carlton Central Infant & Nursery School:
"I cannot express how grateful I personally am for your act of kindness towards the children at Carlton Central Infants & Nursery School.
You have no doubt put a lot of children's lives and have enabled them to experience 'practical' music in its raw form. Perhaps some of them due to circumstances wouldn't have ever had the opportunity to have an instrument of their own but now they do thanks to you.
I cannot thank you enough for what you have done and I hope that the children will by your kind gesture, become involved in music in a big way.
With love and best wishes from myself and I'm sure all the children at the school"
School teacher
