Pupils at The British School in Wotton-under-Edge usually invite senior citizens from the community to watch their Christmas play. However, Covid-19 restrictions mean that isn't possible this year so instead the children in each class have been busy making gifts that will be given to their senior friends.
See December's Wotton Times for more information, available from Friday, December 4th.

Not to blow our own trumpet (well, okay, maybe a bit), but a feature from the Wotton Times has just been reproduced in full by the national magazine of the Battlefields Trust. These guardians of our historical heritage have run our feature on the 450th anniversary of the battle of Nibley Green, a grim episode in Wotton's history.
As we noted at the time, we ignore history at the risk of repeating it, so the Battlefield Trust's extensive work in bringing our history to life is crucial.
Wotton historian Adam Dolling led a guided walk around Nibley Green and brought the event to life when we carried out this report, but the 1470 to 2020 milestone (yes, 450 years) was smothered by Covid this year and hence passed by largely unnoticed. Or so you thought...
In the December issue of the Wotton Times, Adam offers a two-page guide to the events of that day. So for anyone seeking inspiration for a festive ramble with a little adrenalin thrown in for free, it will be a must-read. For more details of our exciting imminent Christmas issue, watch this space!
