The Wine Bar & Grill have launched a series of new Music Nights in Winchcombe. Already a firm favourite with locals and a reputation for good food and drink, the Wine Bar & Grill is now showcasing local music evenings twice a month.
Kicking off Saturday, 30th August at 8.30pm with acoustic duo Hambling & Lloyd, and going right through to 20 December with John D'Ambrosio.
October marks the third season of 'Winchcombe Live', popular music nights at the White Hart Inn. There will be new music and a couple of returns for some of the acts that have proved popular. Starting on 17 October with 'Earl' best described as 'New Country', and finishing with the 'moody and mesmeric', 'Boat to Row', on 20 March 2015.
Members and guests at Winchcombe’s Day Care Centre have raised £360 for Help for Heroes after staging a commemoration afternoon tea marking the start of World War 1. More than 100 supporters turned out to see a special display of war memorabilia, a stunning banner of 425 ‘Lest we forget’ hand-knitted poppies and listen to war songs from the era courtesy of the Monday Members Day Centre Choir.
Staff and volunteers provided afternoon tea with all proceeds in aid of Help for Heroes, to help those wounded in Britain’s current conflicts. Centre Manager Carol Baker, said: “It really was a fantastic afternoon. We had dozens of people visiting us and they were all very interested in reading and seeing the original pictures, letters, medals and memorabilia from the WWI soldiers we had.“ The display of poppies was very impressive and we’d like to thank everyone who supported
us and came along on the day.”
