Coronavirus reponse and bonfire update for 2020

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Twyford & District Round Table continue to meet (virtually) twice a month via zoom. Recent activities include virtual pub quiz, virual horse racing, murder mystery evening, and an abbreviated AGM. We actually continue to grow in numbers with three new members joining us in May!

Given the government advice on large gatherings and the considerable upfront time required for logistics, we have taken the difficult choice to postpone the bonfire event planned for October 2020. The bonfire event has been running for over 40 years and is one of our key fundraising activities. We are actively considering an alternative community event (possibly online) for raising money to support local charities in 2020. Further updates will follow.

We still plan to bring the Santa Sleigh out this Christmas, however it is likely we will need to adapt how we do this to continue to abide with social distancing advice.

Given the nature of the COVID-19 pandemic we may need to re-evaluate our plans as necessary.

Done and Dusted!

It has been an incredible couple of days. We have had the ups and downs and all the in-betweens you can imagine. So we would like to give a huge, heartfelt thanks to all of the people of Twyford and our friends across Berkshire who got stuck in to help and support us when things looked quite difficult. We hope you had a fantastic night and can’t wait to do it all over again next year (after some rest mind you haha). Thank you from all of us at the Twyford & District Roundtable.

A message from our Chairman – Update on the Fireworks & Bonfire Night

The firework night will have a dazzling RAF themed display celebrating 100 years of flying expertise.

Unfortunately last night someone set light to the magnificent bonfire we spent all day yesterday building.

We are disappointed this happened and our thanks are to the fire brigade and the public that brought it to our attention. Firstly I would like to say this absolutely won’t stop us going ahead with tonight’s firework extravaganza!

Secondly, we’re rebuilding the bonfire today and thank the Twyford Community for their help and supportive messages.

This will be a great demonstration of how Twyford can come together to support each other.

If anyone has any wood, garden waste or furniture please bring it to the field until 2 pm today and my team will build an even better bonfire!
Otherwise please show your support by coming down tonight. Gates open 6.30pm and tickets are available via or on Facebook or on the gates.

Let’s have a great night together.

Thank you, Twyford
