Jo from The Wool Cellar and Deb’s the Fibre Faery from Crafty Cat Knitty Bits would like to extend you a warm welcome on the very first Sodbury Yarn Over Festival, to be held on April 6th and 7th in Chipping Sodbury Town Hall and the Old Grammar School!
We have lots of amazing artists joining us from in and around Bristol, the South West and from farther afield. We are also joined by our local Guilds and other local groups, offering help, advice and demonstrations.
After a number of years resting, and an annual pleading by residents and local businesses, the time is right to hold the Crib Festival at St John’s Church, Chipping Sodbury again. The plans are in their infancy and if you’d like to be part of the team organising this exciting event, please do get in touch. We’ll be holding the festival at the end of November 2024. For more information contact Paul Jones-Williams on 07980 240103 or by email below.

The first zero carbon homes have been unveiled to the public by Newland Homes at its new development in Engine Common, called Great Oaks.
84 three and four bedroom homes are being constructed just off North Road, complete with high levels of insulation, solar panels for electricity generation, air source heat pumps for hot water and heating, and electric car charging points. Rather unusually for new build developments, three detached bungalows will also be built.
