Here’s the amazing ACHG Scarecrow that guarded the Heritage Centre during the Aldbourne Scarecrow Trail last weekend – an ‘Ugly’ bird joining in with the “Fairy Tales & Musicals” theme. A mixed weekend weatherwise, but as ever a fabulous family event organised by the hardworking team at Aldbourne Churches Together – I think there may still be people out there hoping to solve just one more clue!

In 2016, the Scarecrow Trail featured “Award Winners” and the ACHG paid homage to this brave Dabchick whose portrait still graces the Officers’ Mess at RAF Odiham. Do you know her name?

Between 1943 and 1976, local art collector and landowner HJP (or ‘Jimmy’) Bomford gave 21 works of art to Swindon. These were instrumental in encouraging Swindon to establish a modern art collection for the town. Bomford’s gift included drawings and paintings by some of Britain’s best known artists, including Graham Sutherland, Ben Nicholson, LS Lowry and Henry Moore. This exhibition brings together many of the works Bomford gave to Swindon to celebrate his generosity and vision.
