What’s On

The Witches of Malmesbury


by Tony McAleavy

In 1672, the north Wiltshire town of Malmesbury was swept by witchcraft hysteria. Leading families were convinced that their children were under attack from an organised coven of witches. Fourteen people were arrested as members of the coven. Visiting speaker Tony McAleavy has researched this little-known episode using sources that survive from the time. He will tell the story of the witches of Malmesbury and what happened when some of the accused were sent for trial in Salisbury.

AGM for Stinchcombe Village Hall

The Annual General Meeting for Stinchcombe Village Hall will be held in the Committee Room at 7.30am on Tuesday 19 November 2019.

The village hall is an important asset for the village and the village hall committee continue to maintain it and run it so it is a viable operation.  A piece of land has been acquired behind the hall to enable the committee to extend the car park, as the present car park is too small for the present usage.

Please come along and support us, it is your Village Hall and we are always happy to listen to suggestions for its use.
