Paul Jacobs of the CGI team are successfully
managing the crop circle, as one can see from the photos (the insert is also
of James Hussey the farmer who helps administer his late wife's charity
appeal). Visitors to Wiltshire can visit this crop circle and support this
charity which is at Uffcott, near Wroughton, Wiltshire, UK. Reported on the
22nd of June, 2015. Paul's comment - 'High spirits here at The Rose CC.
Working for 'Brighter Futures' charity with farmer James helping to raise
funding for the new Radiotherapy Unit at Swindon. People in general are very
enthusiastic to help.' Those wishing to donate directly can do so through
The Rose at Broad Hinton….Update.
As from today CGI
have been invited to manage this CC which at the time of writing is the
only one accessible (£3 donation per adult) with farmer consent. James
the farmer called me first thing this morning saying he was very
disappointed at the amount that had been collected in his on-site money
box which amounted to just £85 for the three week period. He was
particularly annoyed as he had been monitoring the groups going in, one
of which was a large coach of 50 and others of at least 10 in number.
It’s a shame group leaders are not more conscientious regards collecting
from their charges. If you were one of these people perhaps think if you
donated. The cause is a good one…the Swindon ‘Just Giving’
charity for a local Radiotherapy Unit.
We at CGI are very
keep to help so rather than let the farmer cut the CC, which he was
intent on doing, we agreed to his request to help, basically saving it
from the mower.
Gill who was the
farmers deceased wife was well know in the area and I suggested to James
perhaps other farmers may be interested in helping by allowing ‘at the
CGI services if they get a CC rather than just
cutting it out. He agreed and so we will be going forward on this basis.
This could be the turning point that we were all waiting for! We will
also be considering working with other agencies for Gill’s sake, in a
very limited capacity initially, to enhance any potential there may be.
This is an attempt to
raise the bar to a higher order.
did speak to our dear friend James Hussey, the
farmer of this CC field at Uffcott. He informed us
that his wife Gill had sadly passed away last
November and wished for all donations to go direct
to The Radiotherapy Unit at Great Western Hospital
via the links given here;
Gill Hussey is fundraising on Just Giving for The
Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Charitable Fund rather than through any other
fundraising agencies. Alternatively, any groups that
wish to visit this CC should bring donations (larger
amounts) direct to him in person at the farm, others
to leave a generous donation of at least £3 per head
in the secure box provided within the CC. James told
us any future CC he has on his land can be managed
by CGI to raise funds for this worthwhile cause. We
feel our presence is not so needed on this
We (at CGI) got to know the
Husseys well since managing a CC of theirs at
Hackpen Hill three years ago and so naturally it was
with utter shock that we heard the news. We felt the
CC itself was extremely poignant being in the
form of a ROSE, a symbol of love placed on their
land by the Makers and a wonderful tribute to Gill's
memory. Of course non of us could possibly
appreciate the significance of the design before the
news was told. If I had any reservations regarding
the interactive nature of the CCs before, they are

with Rory Bremner.
Please, an appeal to ALL
WILTSHIRE FARMERS. An idea to view Crop Circles as a
resource rather than a nuisance? Perhaps think
twice, then once more before cutting a CC?...but
said respectfully; we understand your position.
However, if managed well and free of charge, eg. by
CGI, it WILL make a difference to people like Gill.
At the Hackpen Hill CC around £2400 was raised.
Swindon desperately needs this Radiotherapy Unit as
Oxford is such a distance!
Hussey has just informed Crop Circle Connector that there are envelopes at
the at the donation box. Could British Nationionals please fill out their
address if they are UK tax payers as the tax will be added to the donation
by the Inland Revenue and then place their donation in the envelope along
with this information.
