Written by   in 

“Winnie” comes home to Tilshead! Well, in a manner of speaking: the “Winnie Group” are pleased to announce that the “Winnie plaque” will be unveiled this Thursday (17th) at 9.30 am at the Village Hall.

Everyone in the village are very welcome to join this happy occasion.

All the pupils at St. Thomas a Becket’s will be attending and refreshments – tea coffee and cake will be offered in the Hall after the unveiling.

Radio Wiltshire are sending a reporter to cover the morning so we will feature on their breakfast programme.

Please come along and enjoy a small piece of our Village History , when the Inspiration for one of the World’s favourite children’s story characters is commemorated as having been a former resident of Tilshead.

Hi All

Due to holidays we’ve brought the October meeting forward a week to the last week in September.  The intention is to continue with making the hats for Age UK’s Big Knit campaign 2018 (patterns here) or you can continue with your own craft project if you’d rather!

At last night’s meeting we got started on the hats and pom-poms and we’re rather pleased with the results!
