Lockdown continues, yet local organisations in Trowbridge are still running activities which have something for everyone . . .

  • Trowbridge Museum are running fun and simple ‘Making Monday’ craft sessions for all ages on their Facebook and Instagram pages. Also, the Learning Team are on hand with history help too, for when home schooling gets overwhelming. So if you’re finding Tudors troubling, or getting vexed with Victorians or egregious Egyptians, contact Nikki.Ritson@trowbridge.gov.uk with your questions.
  • Wiltshire Rural Music, based on Gloucester Road are doing ‘Musical Phone Calls’ to people living in isolation who could benefit from a phone call. This can just be a chat, but can also involve a song or two. If you know of anyone who could get something from an old-fashioned phone call with a bit of live music thrown in, get in touch with Gavin on creativedirector@wiltshireruralmusic.co.uk.
  • Trowbridge Library staff are offering regular activities direct from their homes. Start the week at 10am with Tracy’s Story Selection. Basil sings nursery rhymes (with his son Jim on piano) live on Friday mornings at 11am. Rhyme Times happen each day at 11am and 2pm and every evening there’s a bedtime story at 6pm. If you prefer a more serene experience, join in for tea and chat, including poetry and prose, on Tuesday afternoons at 3pm. You can find details of all of these activities on Trowbridge Library’s Facebook page.
