Art Group

Meets on Monday afternoons from September to April. Contact is Alison Cullen, 869778. Here they are about a year ago, on a public Facebook page. We do not know who is hiding! The group welcomes new members, from expert to novice.

Somerford Keynes Bowls Club

We won our first match of 2017 against Coots of Crudwell at home. Then it was mostly downhill. At the end of the winter season, we are not bottom of the league. In better news, at the end of year competitions, our Triples team won the Malmesbury league trophy on Saturday 22nd April at Seagry. See picture right The short-mat club meets on Thursday evenings for informal games. At present we have a few vacancies, though the numbers are limited, so that everyone has a reasonable time to play on club evenings. All ages are welcome. If you know nothing about bowls or are already a good player, we would like you to come and join us. Please phone our team captain, Des Sheen on 860469. The club usually has a summer break from end June to  end August.

Bridge Clubs

There are two bridge clubs that are quite different. Tuesday Bridge is a friendly affair where you can learn the basics of duplicate bridge, and is a good starting place if you have recently learnt bridge or if you just want a friendly evening without the other team breathing down your neck about the rules. Tuesday Bridge is short of players, so we welcome new players of any standard. We meet in the village hall at 7.15pm and finish before 10pm. There is no membership fee and only £1.50 per person per evening. Contact is Muriel Watkins 861614. Wednesday Bridge is more formal, and you need to be reasonably competent, but don’t worry if you are not an expert. You will not get eaten. There is the opportunity to play in simultaneous EBU events and earn points, but no pressure for you to do so. There is a membership fee and a small charge per evening. Contact Mary Harris 861222. Village Hall 7.15pm to 10.30pm Website


Upholstery classes have now stopped. However the skills have been transferred, so if you need upholstery done, ask around, and you may find someone who can help.

Parish History Group

Contact Judy Monger. See History pages The group is considering how to make its studies more generally available. At present much is stored on a CD which may be purchased for a small sum.

Wine Society

Contact Donald Stewart on 869231 for future activity.
