Wortwell Silver Festival will celebrate the 25th anniversary since the Community Centre was opened.  The event is taking place on Saturday 16 September (previously planned for 5 August) at the Community Centre and you are all welcome to attend.

The event is a joint venture between Wortwell Community Centre Management Committee,  Wortwell Parish Council, The Bell and villagers.

If you would like to get involved with organising, running stalls or events we would love to hear from you.  Even better, please come to our next meeting at The Wortwell Bell on Wednesday 31 May at 2.30pm.  If you can’t attend  but would still like to be involved please ring Mags on 01986 788511.

We will be holding an ‘Auction of Promises’ and are looking for donations of time, skills or special treats e.g. gardening, car washing, home baking, music lesson etc from villagers.  We would also like to hear from local businesses and tradespeople as we will advertise your business in the promotional flyer for the festival in exchange for a donation to the auction in lieu of a charge.  Please contact Allison on 01986 788116 with your donations!

Wortwell Community Centre is shortly to acquire two table tennis tables.  There must be a lot of people out there who, like me, used to enjoy playing but who haven’t done so for years for one reason or another.   Or you may be a serious player looking for a nearby venue to practice.  Either way, we’re trying to find out if the village has an appetite for either a club, or table tennis practice sessions.  At this stage I can’t give you any further details but if you would like to register an interest please phone Simon Leggett on 01986 788789 or send me an email to  We can then assess whether there is the demand to take it further.

The next production to be presented at Wortwell Community Centre is “As The Crow Flies” on 24th March at 7:30 pm.   Based on a true story of a woman who struck up an unlikely friendship with a wounded crow, this new play was written specifically for rural touring and features live music, original songs, great drama – and a crow called Alfie. A heart warming story of friendship, healing and kindness.
