Murder Mystery Play - Saturday 6th April 2019

Murder Mystery Evening performed by Purton Amateur Dramatic Society on Saturday, 6th April at 7.30pm the Cricklade Town Hall.

The Purton Players will have an entirely new play to challenge your sleuthing abilities.

A Murder Mystery Evening consists of a play in which various clues are hidden to the identity of the killer. At the end of the play, the audience are invited to identify the clues and unveil the murderer. In our version the clues are solved by table and there is a break half way through for supper.

For tickets email Chris at or phone 07710075406.

The ticket includes a cheese and ham supper  with veggie alternative (please let us know if you require the veggie alternative). There is no bar, so just bring your own drinks and glasses.

Twinning Visit to Sucé 2019

The Twinning visit to Sucé will be from 4 July to 8 July. We will go by plane from Bristol.  You will need to book your tickets on line - at the moment the prices are good. If you book or want to book please let us know, so we can get the Sucé end squared away. We have never had a problem, but lets make sure it stays that way. Email

The flight details are EZY6023 Bristol to Nantes Thursday, 4 July 2019  12:00 returning by EZY6024 Nantes to Bristol Monday, 8 July 2019  19:25. The web link for EasyJet is "". Be careful not to use other sites that look like they are EasyJet, they may give you the same price, but give you a bunch of other issues and difficulties.


Our Treasurer, Debbie, has asked me to remind you that subs are due - any questions email

Farewell to Jane

Sadly Jane Whinfrey is leaving us to return to Yorkshire. Jane has made an enormous contribution to the Association over the past few years. We will miss Jane and husband Gary as will Cricklade more generally. We wish them a happy future. Those who come on the visit to Sucé will see them there.
