Waitrose Community Tokens – May 2017

Thank you to everyone who supported us at Waitrose, Warminster during May. We submitted a request to be included in their green token scheme and have had a share out of the May allowance, gratefully receiving £277 from the branch. This will be put to very good use – thank you to everyone involved.


Shearwater Sailing Club – Topper & Comet Open April 2016

A good turnout fought through all weathers on Saturday 9th April to complete 3 races. Shearwater Sailing Club welcomed sailors from far afield including Cambridgeshire, Cornwall & Hampshire but it was the West Wilts Topper sailors that saw off all the competition winning all three prizes.

Racing in sunshine, high wind, low wind, hail & rain everyone came off the water soaked & cold to enjoy soup & other hot drinks, baguettes & a steady supply of biscuits for lunch & a well stocked cake table for afternoon tea.
