Tunstead and Sco-Ruston Diary

The diary for 2018

You will find a list of community events below. There are regular social events, special events, and formal village community meetings.

Coffee Morning

The regular coffee mornings take place in the portacabin on the playing field. They are held regularly on a  Monday between 10:00 – 11:30. Do come along. Look out for the notice board by the lane leading to the village hall.

Photo Competition

Tunstead Village Hall Committee hold an annual photo competition. This year the competition closes in September. As that date approaches you will be invited to send your photos in to be judged; the winning entry will be published as the facing page of a set of notelets.  This year’s theme is “Scenic Tunstead”. That meant that all photos must have a view readily identified as being in Tunstead. Please note: no people in the photos.

There is a £1 fee for each photo entered.

Closing date for entries – 30th September.

Wedding Dresses through the Ages

We are celebrating wedding ceremonies held at St. Mary’s Church, Tunstead. This event will be held at the same time as the church flower festival in the summer in 2018. If you have kept your wedding dress (or have photographs of it) then you can show it off at this event. The only proviso is that you will have to have been married at St Mary’s Church, Tunstead. There will be a display of wedding dress and photos of weddings that took place in St Mary’s. So take a trip to your wardrobe or that special trunk in the loft. It will be so nice to see how fashion have changed through time, and you may like share or relive memories of that occasion with others.
