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.

Ride & Stride 2015

Saturday 12th September Run by Gloucestershire Historic Churches Trust, this is a great way to support our church and those across the county when they need most help. If you like walking, cycling or horse-riding church to church, put the date in your diary now. Plan your own route, take a picnic, top up with refreshments at the churches or lunch at a pub. Half the money you raise goes to our church and the rest to the Trust. You will see inside some churches that are not always open. Contact Peter Watkins if you would like to ride or donate. You can also be sponsored for manning the church! Can you spare an hour?

Coffee Mornings

There is a coffee morning in the village hall on the 4th Thursday of most months. Check Activity page for next date.
