THE ARTS SOCIETY KINGTON LANGLEY is an affiliated member of The Arts Society, a leading education charity with a global network of 385 societies bringing people together through a shared interest in the arts. We meet monthly at 11.00am on the 1st Tuesday of the month (except August and September) to hear excellent lecturers share their specialist knowledge about the arts. Our meeting place is The Village Hall, Church Rd, Kington Langley, Chippenham SN15 5NJ.
In November we had 25 days with some rain with a total for the month of 4.55 inches (115.57mm). We had 11 days over 10˚C (50 ˚F) and 18 nights below 4.5˚C (40 ˚F) with 7 nights below 0 ˚C (32 ˚F). We had frost on 13 days. This November was slightly warmer than both 2018 and 2017 but wetter by about 1 inch (25mm) of rainfall.
I am very pleased to report that Ben, a young village resident, has come forward and is taking on ownership of the village hall website.
