Club Pulse

Are you in school years 6-11? Try Club Pulse fortnightly on Sunday afternoons 4.30 -6pm Did you meet Anton at the Scarecrow Day? He’s your man to see.  

The Bells

There are four bells of which three are mediaeval. Our Millennium Project was to rehang the bells so that they could be properly rung. As the bells are part of a listed building and of such age, they are not allowed to be tuned. Why not?  Nor do they swing over. But ringing them is fun. If you would like to try, contact Lynton Mogridge

Remembrance Sunday

On Sunday 9th November, as part of the annual remembrance service, a new plaque was unveiled (above) incorporating the names of all those from Somerford Keynes who died in both World Wars. It was designed and made by Lynda Isherwood, who has been researching these people, and revealed all she has found out about them at the History Group meeting the following day.

Carol Singing

around the Village was on Monday 22nd December. Hope you heard the singers, which seemed from the porch a larger group than usual. Thirty two took part and the rest of us contributed £360 to Winston’s Wish. Well done all. Find out about Winston’s Wish
