Tudorville Fun Day

Tudorville Residents Association are on the point of taking over the Youth Centre in Tudorville, opening it as as a Community Centre which is available to everybody. A Fun Day took place in the building on Saturday, 2nd September at which children enjoyed themselves while adults met as part of a feasibility study to discuss and find out what the people of Tudorville want from the hall, including how it is going to be decorated.

Tudorville Youth Club no longer wish to have sole control of the community building. They still wish to use it but have passed control to the Residents' Association, who will share future usage with toddler groups, youth club, sports clubs, senior citizens and general hobby clubs.

A free raffle took place at Saturday's Fun Day, with prizes of a case of wine for the adults and cuddly toys for the children. There was a bouncy castle outside for younger visitors and a competition to name the centre was held. A demonstration was given by Tudorville Boxing Club, who now regularly use the hall as a club venue.

A Walford Septemberfest

The first Walford SeptemberFest and Show took place at Walford Village Hall on Saturday, 2nd September but unfortunately, the day’s events had to be scaled back due to the bad weather.

The produce show, which was always due to be indoors, saw some interesting exhibits and the standard of entries was encouraging. The organizers would like to thank all entrants for their hard work or horticultural finesse.

'Doing us proud again,' said Julie Church, 'The "Girls” ran the Victorian Kitchen stall which started the day will a fully packed table of cakes and preserves and ended the day somewhat bare! Other popular stalls included the plants and produce and we thank everyone for their freshly picked fruit and vegetables, which also proved extremely delicious.

Thanks also go to Walford Pre-school Playgroup for their cream teas and all those who contributed to the day. Lets go for bigger and better next year!'

All Photos of Last Week's Flower Festival and Summer Music Spectacular

Over the past week I have received many requests to see all of the photographs I took last weekend. In particular, those taken at St. Mary's Flower Festival but also those I took at Summer Music and Fireworks Spectacular.

Time has been very tight for me this past two weeks with taking Matt to Cheltenham for his regular visits and other miscellaneous reasons. The result of which is that this week's news was rather hurried together over the weekend and on Monday and I have still not had time to process all of last week's photos. I usually only process those I actually use. I have however, quickly put together a very rushed gallery of all photos I took at the Flower Festival and at the Summer Music Spectacular, which can be seen here. It will open in a separate window and 99% of the photos are unprocessed i.e. straight from the camera but it will give an idea.
