Scuttlebrook Wake – Chipping Campden

Chipping Campden Bulletin, Events, Noticeboard by Tony 2 Comments »

2nd June Scuttlebrook Wake

The Scuttlebrook Wake always follows on the next day after the Robert Dover’s Olimpick Games.

There is a procession of the Scuttlebrook May Queen from Littleworth to the square, pulled on her cart by the Chipping Campden Morris Men, accompanied by her four attendants and a page boy.

She is followed by decorated floats and a fancy dress parade and all shops and houses along the route are encouraged to enter a window competition. The subject for this year’s competition is “Children’s stories”.

The queen is crowned in the square and then she presents prizes to the follower with the best fancy dress. After this the square is filled with entertainment from Maypole Dancing, Country Dancing and Morris Dancing.

For the rest of the day it is the fun of the fair with Littleworth full of traditional fair rides.

Stay for two days at Little Gidding and see both events.

Update 17th May from the Chipping Campden Bulletin… Shop / House Window Competition

The subject of this year’s Shop/House Window competition is ‘Children’s Stories’. This should give everyone, including the children, a wide range of ideas – from the modern such as Harry Potter to the old favourites like Peter Rabbit. All shops and houses along the route, from Littleworth to the chemist, are welcome to enter and judging will take place on the morning of Scuttlebrook Wake.

The Scuttlebrook committee would also like to encourage as many as possible to enter the fancy dress parade or take part on a float on the day as this brings much interest to locals and visitors alike. The children’s races, which in recent years have been well supported, will take place as usual on the High Street near the Lygon Arms on the Friday evening of Dovers Games.

THE LOCAL HISTORY AND ARCHIVE ROOM

You may have seen my colleagues or me, hurrying down the High Street clutching files or papers, heard us call ‘just off to the archives’: or noticed us scurrying into the Old Police Station at all hours. Perhaps you have wondered what we do there?

The CADHAS local history and archive room is in the Old Police Station on the first floor. It is run by Olivia Amphlett, CADHAS archivist and her main assistants, Monica Bedding, Judith Ellis, Jennifer Bruce and Carol Jackson with a team of fourteen volunteers. The archive room was first set up in 2003 and since that time has been open regularly on Monday afternoons, Wednesdays am & pm, Thursday and Saturday mornings for members of the public, Campden locals, CADHAS members or visitors to the town to visit and consult CADHAS records.

Good things happen on the streets of Chipping Campden

Chipping Campden Bulletin, Letters by Adam No Comments »

(From the letters section of the Chipping Campden Bulletin. Reproduced with kind permission of Jeremy Green)

It’s comforting to know that good things happen on the streets of Campden! Totally unaware, I dropped my purse outside the library which was thankfully found by a couple waiting for the bus. The tourist information office being closed, they handed it to a lady in the town who kindly took the trouble to phone my home and mobile numbers. Apart from cash, I would have also lost debit/master cards, and a driving licence and the prospect of cancelling and renewing these was not attractive. Not only am I enormously grateful to these kind people, it’s good to know there are thoughtful, caring people around.
