Corsham Civic Society Important News

Dear Members,

I am mindful of the health problems that are currently sweeping throughout the world and through our own country. My thoughts and prayers are with those who are suffering from this virus and I hope that it strikes very few people in our area. Our last ‘get together’ was held on Friday, February 28that Guyers House, where 28 of us enjoyed a most excellent lunch. I proposed a toast to absent friends, not knowing how quickly things would change in just 18 days. I am sorry we’ve had to cancel our March meeting and following meetings until at least the end of July.

The Pound Arts Centre has closed its doors and we have no idea when they may re-open. Copies of the March edition of ‘Spotlight’ will be available from April 1st at Barnett Brothers or may be delivered to your home.

All good wishes.

Michael Rumsey

Exploring Wiltshire’s Parish Churches

Exploring Wiltshire’s Parish Churches

I’ve always enjoyed visiting parish churches while travelling around the UK and having spent 35 years working in Church of England primary schools, there was always a parish church attached which was visited frequently by the pupils and staff.
