Beat the winter blues with a coffee and a catch up at The Pelican this Wednesday – 22nd January 2020 at 11am
Come along for a coffee and a chin-wag at The Pelican on Wednesday 20th November at 11am. Everyone welcome.
Due to it being election day and the village hall being used as a Polling station, the training will be held at The Old Bakehouse (bottom of Brewhouse Hill).

Apologies to those due to atend the speedwatch training today but the CSW Co-ordinator from Wiltshire Police has cancelled due to illness. He is hoping to reschedule for the same day and time next week.
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.
