St John’s Tree Festival
From: Sunday 09 December 2018
To: Sunday 06 January 2019

St John’s Tree Festival features 70 decorated trees by local schools, nurseries, care homes and individuals as well as businesses, scouts, guides and brownies. Each tree is sponsored to the amount of £30 by local businesses and local people as well as some of the decorators.

We are launching the festival on December 8 in the afternoon with MP Claire Perry coming to judge the trees and present awards. This event from 2.30 pm is open to all and will finish with informal carols in the church.
The church is then open until Twelfth night for people to view, but times will be advertised later.

This year we are once again offering memorial trees in the churchyard and will also have memorial trees to commemorate the end of WW1.
People can donate to have an epitaph put on the WW1 trees for this memorial and money raised from these trees will go to the Royal British Legion.
Location St John’s Church – Devizes

Beyond the Farside with Crooked Tracks Wiltshire

So what is the challenge? That’s easy (to explain…….not the challenge itself…….that’s not easy!!) You will be running in a part of the Wiltshire countryside encompassing the edge of Salisbury Plain. The route covers approximately 5.30 miles with an overall elevation of 869ft per circuit. You can choose to enter for a slightly extended circuit as a 10K option or complete as many circuits as you can in 6, or 12 hrs Sounds straight forward doesn’t it. Oh, hang on……there is more. Each circuit will consist of 3 descents from the Plain back down to civilisation. “Not bad” I hear you say. Well…………it kinda is really, because after 2 of these descent you have to turn around and go straight back up the hill that you have just ran down. Fun or evil….you decide. You will meet runners on the way down as you are coming back up the same hills. You will also rub shoulders with runners as they are outward bound and you are heading homewards. “Rubbing shoulders” is not a euphuism either ………some of the tracks are quite narrow.
You will find a fully stocked aid station in Race HQ where you can feast yaself as much as you wish. Vegan, Vegetarian, Dairy Free, and Gluten Free runners will also be fully catered for…….you won’t just find a handfull of Twiglets as your only option!! A bean hotpot will also be provided from the 6 hour point onwards as well.
A unique and bespoke medal also awaits you…….and incase you find yourself victim to a scary gang of badger hoodies (or twist an ankle, etc) then a fully equiped ambulance and medical team will also be present throughout the entire event.
