Village Market – Saturday 8th March


The village school would love to welcome new faces to our monthly market which is held in our village hall , school parents  kindly run this voluntary event , We would love to see past pupils, parents and local villagers who like to support the village in fund raising. All money that is raised benefits every child in Tickenham School making such a difference to special day trips and treats for the pupils.

We have a wide selection of local fresh goods and gifts on offer. Refreshments and food available in the morning making it a treat to eat out on a Saturday morning whilst helping the local school.

Please support this in the village and come along we would love to see you all.

Mrs Browning leaves after 25 service at Tickenham School

On Friday May 10th, Mrs Browning and her capable hands handed in her mop and bucket to leave for pastures new. At the Friday celebration service, the hall was packed with children, parents and staff past & present to wish her a fond farewell. The children had learnt their own leavers song and sang it beautifully for her. There were few dry eyes in the house.

The children and staff will miss her dearly. We wish her the very best for the future.

New outdoor stalls added to the village market

The monthly event is held at Tickenham Village Hall and is organised by parents and staff at Tickenham Primary School, with all proceeds put back into the school.

In a bid to promote the market, new co-ordinator Lisa Collard has begun signing up people willing to hold outdoor stalls, including organic fruit and vegetable producer Mark Cox, from Barley Wood Walled Garden.

Lisa said: “Outside stalls seem to have worked for other markets so we thought we would try it. We get lots of stall holders willing to take part so we just now need to increase our footfall.”
