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.

Santa is coming…

This year Twyford & District will be visited by RoundTable’s Sleigh on the below dates (see maps for routes) We look forward to seeing you.  We will be debuting our new sleigh (and reindeer) as well as  trialling a Santa tracker! this year, keep watching for news.

New Trailer for Santa

Twyford & District Round Table would like to thank Christy and all at Berkshire County Trailers https://www.berkshirecountytrailers.com/ for their amazingly kind donation of a trailer!  This will be the base on which we build the new sleigh for our fundraising at the Twyford Christmas fayre and the village visits.  For the rest of the Summer/Autumn, Round Table will be constructing the new sleigh.  We would gratefully receive any volunteers with a specialist skill in paint/carpentry/electrics & sign writing (we have many unskilled volunteers ready to take direction).  The grand unveiling will be at the Village Christmas Fayre.
