Minchinhampton Life was set up in 2017 by a group of volunteers as it was felt there was a need to bring the town together. A newcomer to the area might struggle to find out what was going on in the town and when and where events were taking place. Also we hoped the website would inform newcomers and others what businesses and shops there were in the town. There were, and are, many good resources such as the Parish website, the Market House website and Churches’ sites but nothing that brought everything together.
The lack of Christmas decorations in the town had been commented on and in 2017 Minchinhampton Life managed to get ten small Christmas trees put up in the High Street and Market Square , as well as lights on a tree in the Churchyard. In 2018 the small trees have increased in number to fifteen, and we are hoping to increase this even more next year.
The bi-annual Minchinhampton Fayre has not been held for four years and another ambition for Minchinhampton Life is to get this up and running for September 14th 2019. A separate Fayre Committee has been allocated to take responsibility for this.
At present the Committee consists of John Mounsey; Jean Mounsey: Andrew Lane: Adrian Herbert; Janet Chamberlain; Norah Brooks; Nigel Parry; Anne Parry;
