There are a great many clubs and organisations in Bampton and today I was given a couple of posters to put up for two of them.
The first was advertising the film to be shown at the Riverside Hall.
The film nights take place once a month and give an opportunity for the people of Bampton to see new films without having to venture to Tiverton, Taunton or Exeter.
I am told they have a break halfway through for a cup of tea and a biscuit.
The second poster is to try and recruit more members for the Bampton Players who put on a few productions each year.
They perform a Pantomime in February and fit in one or two plays throughout the year.
At Bampton Fair they have recently started to perform a mummers play http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mummers_Play and this has proved so popular that they have been asked to perform it at Knightshayes, a National Trust place near to Tiverton http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/knightshayes-court/ , on several weekends over the summer.
I received a tweet this morning from the Bampton website guru advising followers that there is now a dedicated webpage for the proposed Bampton Heritage & Visitor centre http://www.bampton.org.uk/heritage-centre.html which is to be sited in the church.
The Parcelforce delivery man came in several times today as he not only delivers and collects parcels to us but also leaves parcels that cannot be delivered to customers in Bampton.
He said that when he went to deliver a parcel to someone today he was told “You can’t deliver this today as we have been told it will not be ready until September”.
