The Bishop's Waltham eNews is back!

Now that life is starting to return to normal, we have decided to relaunch the monthly eNews to keep you up-to-date with news and events in and around Bishop's Waltham.

If you have information you would like included in a future mailing, please email
GIVE & TAKE: Toys, Games, Books and Clothes for Under 11s
TODAY: Saturday 31st July, 12 - 4 pm
People will not have to give to be able to take. You can give, you can take or you can give and take, whichever works for you. The whole idea is to repurpose unwanted items and pass them on to people who can use them, rather than ending up in landfill. Next event: Saturday 28th August: Small Household Items & Entertainment
Family Countryside Trail
Running throughout August
Collect a trail sheet from the porch of St Peter's Church from 1st August and follow the signs across local fields and lanes to find a word. Prizes to be won!

Raising funds for South Central Ambulance Charity and celebrating the NHS, The Big Tea is a chance for the community to come together and enjoy live music, entertainment, tea and cake in the High Street.  There will be juice for children and the first 500 people get a free slice of cake and a drink (juice or a cuppa)! We look forward to seeing you there!
