Roadworks NOT this weekend

Message received about Follyfield Roadworks :

Dear Sir/Madam

Regrettably, due to recent inclement weather delays in other counties, the micro asphalt works in Malmesbury have been postponed and will not be undertaken on Saturday 2nd October as originally planned.

I will be back in touch once the new dates are confirmed, however they are likely to be around mid – end of October.

Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Kind regards

Craig and Dan Payne

As part of this weekend’s Flying Monk Art Trail brother’s Craig and Dan Payne are showing what they do.

Both amazing talents but with very different ways of showing it !

You can find them both at Whychurch Farm. Coming out of Malmesbury past Spice Merchant it’s on the left just before the roundabout.

See them this weekend 10:00 – 17:00 Saturday and Sunday

Lost Envelope

I was walking on the footpath between Church Farm and Rookery Farmhouse at 19:00 yesterday evening and think I might have dropped a white envelope with my name (Sarah) on it containing a thank you note and some gift vouchers, as I set out with it and didn’t arrive home with it.

I have backtracked searched thoroughly but it was not there at 06:45 this morning. I am hoping that if anyone saw it and has picked it up they might just get in touch…. long shot but I’m desperately trying to cover all possibilities!

Many thanks Sarah

Hankerton’s Harvest Festival

On Sunday, 19th September, twenty-four villagers of all ages were in Hankerton Church for the Harvest Festival. The church had been magnificently decorated on a harvest theme. Following a short service some chat, tea and excellent cake were shared.

Gift donations went to the Harbour Project (a Swindon-based charity supporting refugees and asylum-seekers) and the collection will be sent to Doorway (a Chippenham-based charity supporting homeless people).

Minety Art Club Exhibition

After a year’s absence, and Covid rules permitting, Minety Art Club will once again be holding their Annual Art Exhibition and sale of work on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th October 2021 in Minety Village Hall. Entrance is free.

Over the years, the Art Club’s exhibition has become a highly regarded showcase for local artistic talent and a must-see on Minety’s events calendar. In addition to a substantial collection of affordable original art for sale, selected artists will be demonstrating their working techniques and giving visitors a chance to have a go themselves.

For children, there will be an opportunity to be shown how to paint in watercolour.

Refreshments of tea coffee and cakes will be available throughout both days.

Pizza & Interesting Chat !

You are invited by Hankerton Parish Council to an informal gathering to catch up with friends and neighbours and hear from members of the community about what’s been happening, and what’s planned, in and around Hankerton (see below).

Drinks & pizza will be provided.

RSVP (just for catering numbers) to (or 01666 822186 if you don’t have internet) by Friday, 17 September 2021.
