Clubs & Societies


East Knoyle Bell Ringers

The six bells in St Mary’s Church are rung as regularly as possible. Our band of bell ringers, who belong to the Salisbury Diocesan Guild of Ringers, practice on Monday evenings. If you are interested in joining, giving bell ringing a try or would just like more information then please contact Roger Standingford. rstandingford@gmail.com

Village Hall 200 Club

The Village Hall is a facility used by most villagers at one time or another. You can contribute to its running costs by being a member of the 200 Club, which isn't so much a club, but a chance to have a bit of a flutter at the same time as helping meet the village hall's maintenance costs.

For an annual contribution of £12, members are entered in six prize draws a year. Each draw has a prize of £50 which is certainly enough to spread a little cheer among the winners. The 200 Club has raised the useful sum of £1,200 towards the hall in 2017. If you’d like to take part, please contact Sara and Neil Southerden on 830594, or at May Cottage, The Street, or via Wrens Shop.

Now we are coming to the time when many of the subscribers’ contributions from last year will run out. If your subscription is running out, you should have received a reminder and entry form recently and, if you haven’t already done so, we’d be grateful if you’d complete your form and return it with your subscription to us, at either our address or at Wrens Shop. The winners are normally announced via the news and events page.

East Knoyle Choir

Our village choir was formed to provide the opportunity for those who enjoy singing to get together and have fun. We sing a variety of styles including folk, pop, jazz, world music and songs from the musicals. Rehearsals take place on Friday evening in the village hall. The doors open at 19:00, and at 19.30 we warm up our voices and sing our hearts out until 20:30.

There are no auditions, no requirement to read music, no joining fee. We only ask for a £1 donation each week to cover our expenses. Individually we may not be fabulous singers, but we find plenty to laugh about and together make a joyful sound. This is an informal choir, so you don’t have to commit to being there every week. You just come when you can. Everyone of any age is welcome. We would love to see you. Come and join us.
Choirmaster - Louise Brown. Secretary - Rachel Naish 832335.

The Book Circle

The Book Circle meets about every six weeks at The Fox and Hounds with books being chosen far enough in advance to give everyone a chance to source and read the title.

The group is a good mix of people so if you enjoy hearing others’ perspectives on chosen titles, contributing your own views, and reading a great selection of books then please ask for further details in Wren's Shop as we are always looking to expand our literary portfolio and welcome any suggestions.
