There will be a mini plant sale on the village green this Saturday 6th June at 10am.  There will be an honesty box so cash only please and no change will be given.  Social distancing rules will apply, so please be considerate of others.

If you have any plants to donate, they can be left outside Pat’s house at 24 Church Road.  All proceeds will be given to charity.

Froxfield signs up for the Great British Spring Clean!!

On Saturday 28th March, we are holding a litter pick and path tidy session from 2pm-4pm to tidy up our little village in preparation for The Best Kept Village Competition which we hope to enter again this year.

Litter picking equipment and some spades are provided but if you have a spare hoe, spade or path edger, please do bring it along.  Please meet at the Village hall first.

A sunny day for the BKVC presentation!

On Wednesday 16th October, Froxfield was finally presented with the engraved shield and framed certificate for winning the ‘Best Newcomer’ category in Wiltshire’s Best Kept Village Competition which was judged back in June this year.  Among those present were Peter Cook the Kennet Co-ordinator of the BKVC, Froxfield Chairman Pat Adams and Councillors Vanya Body and Steve Heppenstall, Richard Fradgley representing the War Memorial Hall as well as our County Councillor James Sheppard and some residents of The College.

Froxfield won £150 cash prize which will be used to purchase more flowers for the planters for next year’s competition.  The shield, which we keep for the year, will be displayed in the trophy cabinet at the hall.
