A Hidden Treasure


Set in beautiful Savernake  Forest, the parish of St Katharine’s comprises various farms, small hamlets and isolated houses. The church's congregation is more widely based, as it has drawn people from the surrounding area who enjoy St Katharine's Church's beautiful surroundings and less frenetic atmosphere.

Next door, the thriving primary school also serves a far larger area than the parish and has a very warm relationship with the church.

The Victorian building is a fine example of an "Oxford Movement" church.  Please see the "About St Katharine's" and "History of St Katharine's Church" pages for more information about our church.

This hidden treasure is worth a journey – you will find a warm welcome. Please click here for location details.

A History of Punch & Judy

With Alix Booth

Thank you, Alix, for a most interesting exploration of the back-story of Punch & Judy at our last Supper Talk, on Friday 7 September at 7pm. Who knew there was so much social history wrapped around the puppet show we thought we were so familiar with? Well ... Alix of course!

We were delighted to have raised £817. Thank you to all of you who so generously supported the event.

Planning is underway for Supper Talk #3 (tentatively scheduled for May of next year).
