Next week’s coffee morning (26 Feb) is cancelled. The following week (5 Mar) will be as normal.

Why not drop in and say hello ? It runs 11:00 – 12:00 every Saturday (except 26th Feb !) and that photo was taken by me at last week’s….. Yes ! that pineapple upside down cake and chocolate cake were as good as they look !

Can Can !

Here’s a message from David Pynn which he asked me to share. So I have !
I’m not sure if everyone is aware that David regularly walks the area collecting the rubbish left by others – I think we all owe him !

A haul of John Smiths cans from the verges near the passing place on the lane to Crudwell, just after the Hankerton charity field. The trouble is we share the road with the bibulous can chuckers.

The Queens Jubilee & The Grapevine

The Queens Jubilee, June 2022 and the Grapevine
A special commemorative edition.

Events – The Queen's Platinum Jubilee 2022

We are planning a special edition of the Grapevine to celebrate Her Majesty’s long reign by producing a Grapevine covering the last 70 years in Hankerton. 

We are asking for photographs, stories, to include anything that you have witnessed or recorded over the last 70 years. Please search your photographs and memories and send them to :

If you would like to talk to Susan or Mary please ring Susan on 577526 or Mary on 577394.

We can safely scan old photographs so that you do not lose the originals! 

We look forward to producing a bumper Grapevine, which will be printed and distributed.

Recycling – Separating The Wood From The Trees

Omnium Citybac® 2-Wheel Wheelie Bins

I received this letter from Wiltshire Council yesterday and thought it might be a good idea to share it as I very nearly missed the key information nestling within all that text !
Basically, the key takeaway is that there will be a 3 week gap between collections of household waste from 16th February to 9th March. So you may want to think about getting some extra bin bags…. and hoping for cold weather….
