Rodborough Sunday Social (Inspired by Jo Cox)
These lovely events are organised by some local residents with the aim of bringing the community together for a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon. Come along and bring a neighbour who otherwise might be by themselves! There will be cake…
Parish Guided Walks 2018
Once again the council is pleased to announce that the South Cotswold Ramblers have agreed to lead a series of guided walks round the lanes, paths and byways of the parish.
These are very social affairs and offer a chance to get out and stretch your legs while meeting fellow residents as well as members of the Rambling Club.
They tend to cover between 3 and 5 miles and last up to a couple of hours.
All walks start from the Rodborough Community Hall, Butterrow West and this year’s dates are:
Thursday 31st May at 6.30pm
Butterrow and Minchinhampton Common calling at Bear – 4 miles
Thursday 28th June at 6.30pm
Across the valley to Selsley – 4.5 miles
Thursday 26th July at 6.30pm
Through Manor Woods to Amberley – 4 miles
Thursday 23rd August at 6.30pm
Canals and railways – 4 miles
