Chedworth news with David Broad

FIREWORKS week got off to a damp start in Chedworth on Saturday with only a few miscellaneous bangs to scare the local wildlife, pets and horses.

Some residents fondly remember when it was just a single Bonfire Night on November 5.

THE start of the new national lockdown will principally affect our pubs in Chedworth parish, the Seven Tuns, The Stump, and the Inn at Fossebridge.

The village hall has been closed to all but pre-school for several months, singers and silver band have been unable to rehearse and drama unable to do their Autumn production.

CHURCH services are again suspended, at least for the next month, so Rev Stephen Goundrey Smith will be again going to a Zoom/virtual service pattern. His online service for last Sunday, November 1, is on

THE parish council meets next Monday at 7.30pm by Zoom.

The council is hoping to co opt a new member at the meeting to fill a vacancy.

A NUMBER of residents have been complaining on social media about missing and illegible road signs, some hidden by trees and undergrowth, some missing completely, both direction signs and speed limit signs.

This may be raised at the parish council meeting.
