Panto Time is Here!

Just to remind everyone that the Stinchcombe Panto ” Jack and the Beanstalk” is THIS Friday at 7.30pm and Saturday 2.00pm and 7.00pm.

It is very much a “Stinchcombe Panto” this year with a much smaller cast than last year and local people acting.

There are still some seats avaiable at all three performances. So please come and support your local Panto.

Over the last dozen years or so the Stinchcombe Panto has become very much a village institution. However, for the Stinchcombe Village Players to continue after this production we desperatley need other Stinchcombe residents to come and join the group, whether it be in acting or in the many backstage roles. The group has really struggled to find people for backstage roles this year. So, If you have ever even thought of joining or helping out then this would be the perfect time to come forward and see what it is all about and maybe speak to Andy Hamilton, or Janet Bartlett this weekend.

It would be a pity if Stinchcombe lost it’s Panto…..

You can order tickets online at

Your Vote Matters





Your vote matters so make sure you’re registered!

National Voter Registration Day takes place on Thursday 5 February 2015 as part of a nationwide week of action to encourage and inspire people to come out and register to vote.

Ahead of the UK Parliamentary General election and local elections taking place on Thursday 7 May 2015, Stroud District Council is urging its residents to get involved by registering to vote.

Since the law changed in June last year, everyone is now responsible for their own registration, rather than registering as a household.

Anyone who has changed their address or is a new voter needs to make sure that they are registered. Not being on the electoral register could also affect your credit rating.

Registering to vote is easy and can be done online by visiting Those registering will need to provide their date of birth and national insurance number.  Anyone without internet can contact the elections team.

You can register to vote at any time, but the deadlines for registration ahead of the election are:

  • Last date for Registration – Monday 20 April
  • Last date for Postal Vote Applications – Tuesday 21 April
  • Last date for Proxy Vote Applications – Tuesday 28 April

The publication of candidates standing in the elections will be available from Thursday 9 April for the Parliamentary Election and Friday 10 April for local elections.

If you would like to know more about electoral registration, or request registration forms, please contact the elections team.

Phone:        01453 754 886
