The best place to be in Upper Rissington on a Wednesday morning? The Community Room at the Village Hall on Pioneers weeks! If you’re new to the village, or if you’ve been here for some time but don’t know many people.
Pioneers is the ideal place to meet up. Refreshments are available all morning (suggested donation £2), conversation flows, and there’s even a book-exchange if you’re looking for something to read! We sometimes have visits from organisations such as Cotswold Friends or the Community Police, and also arrange occasional outings (for example, to local National Trust properties).
- There’s also a monthly Sunday-lunch, which you are very welcome to join.
- Our age limits are 0 to 100+ years, so why not come along sometime and check us out?
- We meet on alternate Wednesdays so drop in any time between 10.30am and 12.30pm – you’ll be made very welcome!
From Autumn BREEZE: Once again, Pioneers continued to meet over the summer months and the holiday period seemed to have little effect on numbers. Coffee, cake and conversation remain central to our Wednesday mornings. The cake is often homemade (some of the Pioneers have discovered baking skills they didn’t know they possessed!), and if you’re not a coffee-drinker, tea or hot chocolate are also available. We also have a book-swap table, which gives us an interesting insight into what everyone else has been reading!
We’ve had a few additional events, such as a trip to Croome Park, which was much enjoyed, and we’re hoping to arrange a few more outings over the Autumn, including (hopefully!) a visit to Westonbirt Arboretum. The regular Sunday lunches at the Wychwood Golf Course also remain popular. You don’t have to come on a Wednesday to join these activities, just see our facebook page for details or contact us via email (on firstname.lastname@example.org).
It’s always great to meet new people on a Wednesday morning, so do feel free to come along and check us out – whether you’re new to the village, or if you’ve been here for years, you’ll be made very welcome.
