LINE-dancing sessions continue at the parish hall on Friday evening from 7.30-9.30pm. New members are always welcome, the charge is a very reasonable £2 for an enjoyable evening's entertainment and keep-fit exercise.

Holy Trinity Bosbury will be the venue for a Trinity weekend flower festival and this year's theme is a trip down memory lane. Celebrations start on Friday, May 20 with an audience participation concert in the parish hall, more details next month.

On Saturday and Sunday the theme of the church flower festival is Bosbury - The Home Front. Gill Andrews will be co-ordinating the flower displays and the regular talented flower arrangers can expect a call! The church will be open from 11am-5.30pm both days, refreshments will be available in the parish hall.

Liz Clutterbuck, who will be in charge of ensuring visitors are fed and watered, is relying on your usual generous support. In the parish hall there will also be an exhibition of memorabilia, including written recollections by Bosbury residents of the war years - where they were, what they did and the celebrations of 1945. All contributions would be most welcome and I would appreciate hearing from anyone with material for the memory lane exhibition. Other attractions include an arts and crafts exhibition in the Old Boys' School and plant stall.

This Sunday, there is no service at Holy Trinity Bosbury but the Hop churches celebrate with a combined Taize service at Ashperton at 6.30pm. Next Sunday, February 6 there will be an 11am service at Bosbury.

A reminder that the artmakers project artist Simon Cobbold and heritage adviser P J Pikes will be at The Bell on Thursday, February 3 between 7-9pm to chat with people about the project. Parish councillor Phillippa Slinger reports that there is a great deal of interest in the project, intended to bring heritage and creative opportunities to rural communities, resulting in a lasting artwork for the village. The evening at The Bell is an initial exploration before the first workshop in the parish hall on Saturday, February 19 from 10.30am-noon during the regular monthly coffee morning.
