The Hot Potato Syncopators LIVE at South Wraxall Village Hall.

From Tim Bray:

Mayhem, comedy, silly dances,  wartime singsongs, a giant paper aeroplane fight and great tunes from the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s.

Played by daredevils on ukuleles, musical saw, tea chest bass, a selection of bizarre and novelty instruments and sung with cut glass voices whilst balancing on each other and falling over.

Like Merchant Ivory Films meets Blue Peter and LSD in a marvellous bewildering collision.

Saturday February 24th. Door 7pm for a 7.30pm start.
Tickets available from the South Wraxall Club or online at
£6 in advanced or £8 on the door.  BYO drinks

Sunday Breakfast

From Jean Atkin:

It was lovely to welcome so many villagers and visitors to the Village Breakfast last Sunday. It is always good to be joined by our young families, and the high chairs were well-used. Guests lingered for a long time to chat with friends and to meet newcomers.

We are grateful to the volunteers who washed up and helped clear everything away. A big thank you to our cooks, coffee makers, waiters and toastmaster. All this hard work and your generosity helped us raise £465.20 towards looking after St James’s Church.

The next Village Breakfast will be on Sunday 11 March: Mothering Sunday. What a treat for families near and far!

Laughter Yoga Tester Session in the Village Hall – 30th January

From Nicky Minter:

Tuesday 30th January, 7.15pm-8.30pm

We all love to laugh and I am sure everyone is aware that when you laugh you feel good.  That is because laughter releases happy chemicals in the brain.

We usually only laugh for short momentary spells but the more lasting health benefits from laughter are experienced after sustained laughter of 10-15 minutes.

This is not only good for your health, it is GREAT FUN!

What it involves:-

  • Playful exercises that induce laughter
  • Deep breathing to increase oxygen to the brain
  • Standing, moving around the room and lying down

What it isn’t:-

  • No actual yoga poses are involved
  • No joke-telling or being put on the spot

I am a certified Laughter Yoga Leader, having trained last year with Lotte Mikkelsen of the United Mind Laughter Therapy Training.

Cost:-  Donation only

Please bring an exercise mat and a bottle of water.  It is best not to eat a large meal beforehand!

Please email or text me to let me know if you want to give it a try.

Pilates Class

From Tania Tempest-Hay:

On Thursday 25th January, I will be teaching a Pilates taster class in South Wraxall Village Hall at 7.30pm. The one hour class is £9.

The class will be Beginner level and will be matwork based.  Please bring a Yoga/ pilates mat or a thick long towel with you to the class. A pillow or cushion would also be great.

Pilates is excellent for core, posture, back conditions, post natal and prehab/ rehab for injuries.

I trained as a Pilates teacher with Alan Herdman, the man who introduced pilates to the UK. I have been teaching in London for 18 years, in the Dulwich area, and now live in Bradford-on-Avon for half of my time.

I have a BA (Hons) in Dance from Trinity Laban and have also taught contemporary dance for many years.  I am a member of Fitness Professionals.
