Free gift wrapping at the Christmas Festival 5 December
Did you know that the TIC sells several books on the history of Winchcombe; beautiful Winchcombe Tea Towels designed by local artist Katie Morgan as well as Cotswold calendars? These are ideal for sending in the post to friends and loved ones in other parts of the country and many items can fit into an A5 envelope and be sent second class post for as little as £1.22.
For anyone interested in ‘the dark side’ of Winchcombe, read Weird and Wicked Winchcombe by Anne Crow. Chapters include ‘Murder’, ‘Treachery’ and ‘Black Magic’! Another of Ann’s books is called A History of Winchcombe in 50 Objects. It gives a fascinating insight into the town’s history by looking at selected objects in the museum including a Winchcombe banknote and a gloving donkey.
Don’t forget to call in on Tuesday 5th December between 5pm and 8pm and pick up a ‘present from Winchcombe’ and get it wrapped for free!
