We are considering a house in Winsley, west of Bradford-on-Avon, and wondered about community spirit, activities, reasonably sedentary clubs concerning arts, history, music etc (we are retirement age!) and generally ease of getting to know people and making friends – any suggestions or opinions?
I don’t know the village particularly well, but do know that Bradford on Avon is a very lively place with a good social community. The Wiltshire Music Centre is there http://www.wiltshiremusic.org.uk which holds great concerts if you like that sort of thing and I know it has a tennis club but that’s probably not quite what you’re looking for!
I have had some great feed back about Winsley through twitter
@hartleyfarm suggested the following “we’ve the best local community! Check out out parish website for lots of news & events http://www.winsley.org.uk/ ”
and also the editor of the local magazine suggested the following answer….
“May I suggest you inform your enquirer that they can email the email@example.com with any information / questions that they cannot find on the website and I am sure they will be happy to answer any question they might have about the village.”
Winsley is a great village between Bradford on Avon and Freshford. V good local pub and good community spirit.
Idea: Why not come down for a weekend and stay in a B&B in the village. The owners will know everything about the village. I can recommend http://www.stillmeadow.co.uk
