Kington Langley Art Group

We are a small group who meet in the village hall twice a month on Wednesday afternoons. We paint and draw in all mediums and at the same time enjoy a chat and a cup of tea. We would love you to join us.
For further information ring Jean on 01249 750014 or Ann on 01249 750597.

Richard Navarro

Richard Navarro and Nicholas Thurston gave us a great performance in February. Their music is fun and quirky; I think BBC 6’s James Robins got it just right when he described it as combining ‘elements of folk and jazz with a sprinkling of magic to create an off-kilter mix of gorgeous weirdness.’ In fact all the quotes and reviews make sense once you have seen the show!

Tracey Hammond of the Gift Café would like to say “thank you” to everyone who came to their first event on Saturday 14th November. “We met some lovely people and had really good constructive feedback which we will be looking at for our next event.” They are planning to return in the new year.

The jumble sale run by Kington Langley Helping Hands raised nearly £400 which will go towards the senior citizens’ Christmas dinner, to be held in the hall on Saturday 5th December.

Mobile Library

Wiltshire Council have completed their review of the mobile library service. Thankfully the mobile service will continue to visit Kington Langley, but with reduced frequency. The final Thursday visit will be on 15th October. After this, we will receive a visit every four weeks, on a Saturday, from 9.20 to 10 am, still in the village hall car park. The mobile library is a wonderful facility – it’s a great place to meet people and exchange book ideas too!

The Table Tennis Group has now installed a replacement table in the village hall, taking the place of the original one which required some heavy lifting and a number of nuts and bolts to screw up for each session. Continue reading

Phew, what a scorcher!

The shade temperature at Kington Langley Village Hall peaked at 31.03°C at 4:15 on Wednesday 1st July!
(The shade sensors are on the outside walls of the hall, just under the eaves so that they are in the shade all day.)
