On Friday 1 July 2016, Woodchester will remember the start of the Battle of the Somme. Anyone interested in joining us for a few minutes is requested to arrive at the War Memorial (between North and South Woodchester) at 7:15 am. A whistle will be blown at 7:30 am to be followed by two minutes silence. More information here.
The draft minutes of the Rights of Way meeting, Planning meeting and Full Parish Council meeting are now available.
Please come along to a ‘bring and share’ cream tea on the Church Green and celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday on the 12th June from 3-5pm. More information here. In case of bad weather, the event will be held in the Endowed School Hall.
The Annual Return (unaudited) and the Notice for the Commencement of the Period for the Exercise of Public Rights can be found here.
Thanks to those who attended the Annual Parish Meeting on Thursday.
For those who didn’t attend, a copy of the Woodchester Report 2016 can be found here. This gives information on organisations within the village and their activities over the past year.
About 80 people attended the Tea party to celebrate the Queen’s birthday and St George’s Day. £300 was raised which has been split equally and donated to Help for Heroes and Longfield.
It was a busy but fun afternoon with entertainment by the hand bell ringers and we sang the National anthem. Some of the children decorated crowns.
The organisers would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped make it a success donating cakes, making sandwiches, and helping out at the event and of course thanks to everyone who came and donated so generously.
