Local clubs & societies
East Woodhay Parish has an array of local clubs:
East Woodhay Silver Band (see poster below)
Woolton Hill & District Gardeners' Club (see poster below)
Short Mat Bowls (see poster below)
Local history society (see poster below): This society has been in existence since 1997 and has had many interesting talks about our area and its surroundings over the years as well as being involved with local research, such as the background to all the names on our war memorials.
The society meets in East Woodhay Village Hall at Heath End once a month between September and March (excluding December) as well as having a visit to a local place of interest in the spring.
The membership fee for the year is £7.50 and visitors are welcome for an entrance fee to their chosen talk of £4.
The February meeting is our AGM but business is kept to a minimum as we follow it with ten minute talks by the members who come up with very wide ranging topics.The society also produced a very informative book on the History of East Woodhay as a Millenium Project and copies are still available, as are copies of the book on the Parish’s footpaths. Memorial books about those on our war memorials can be found in St Martin’s & St Thomas’.
We are always grateful to receive any information about East Woodhay – memories, photographs, documents etc. Again please get in touch, as we don’t want to lose valuable resources. We can always scan or copy items if you want to keep them.
