Kempley Daffodil Weekend 21st & 22nd March


In 1975 four Kempley ladies decided to organise teas on a specific weekend, to coincide with the native daffodils being in bloom, to raise money for the local church. Later the name was changed to Kempley Daffodil Weekend, and the event has been very successful.  See https://www.daffs.org.uk/walk/  for details

The weekend is organised under the auspices of Kempley PCC by a committee of local people each of whom organise different aspects of the event.

Come and see the wonderful displays of wild daffodils in the local woods and fields (some of which are designated SSSIs).  All walks will be starting from St Edwards Church, where there will be early morning refreshments available for the 9:30 and 10:00 walks prior to the village hall opening.

We look forward to welcoming you to our guided walks to view the daffodils.   Walking Maps of the Daffodil Way and walks in Queenswood will be available for sale from the village hall and St Mary’s Church.

The small wild daffodils grow freely in many fields and the surrounding woods and can be enjoyed on the circular ‘Daffodil way’ footpath covering approximately eight miles. The daffodils may be seen from the roads between Newent and Dymock which pass through the village of Kempley. Local maps are available from the village hall showing the sites of specific interest where daffodil fields can be seen.

Many years ago, the daffodils were picked by local children and sent by train from Gloucester to London for the hospitals and to be sold in the markets. Each bunch had to have the same number of flowers and leaves and were tied with raffia.   Several of the fields around the village are carpeted with daffodils and are designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs).

Unlike cultivated daffodils, the wild daffodils propagate from seed taking about 4 years to reach the flowering stage; they then flower again for another 2 or 3 years. It is therefore important not to cut the grass until the flowers have seeded and the seeds have matured – usually late June or early July.

Little Women (U) – April 25th

Pauntley Village Hall 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Writer-director Greta Gerwig has crafted a ‘Little Women’ that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms – is both timeless and timely.

Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbour Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.

Tickets £5.50 to include tea/coffee and cake.  Bring your own wine/beer.  Raffle.  Advance booking ONLY please, by phone on 01531 822315 or email pauntleyvillagehall@gmail.com.  See our website www.pauntley.org.uk.
