Cricklade Twinning June 2017 Newsletter

Cricklade Festival - 18th June

We still need lots of bottles to run our bottle stall successfully, we need a few good bottles, but other bottles also make for a good stall. Your generosity will be appreciated

To donate a bottle(s), deliver them to 7 Home Ground or if nobody is home drop them to No 6 (next door). Alternatively, phone Jane Whinfrey on 750048 and we will collect.

The stall will be outside 45 High Street (next door to C&R Grocers).

We also need volunteers to look after the stall. We appreciate that our members are often involved in several stalls, but the odd hour does allow the stalwarts to take a break. So, if you could email me (chair@ and let me know what period you can be on the stall, that would be wonderful.

We will be setting up the stall from 9am.
