EVER fancied writing poetry or a novel but didn’t know where to start?

Join Matthew Tett at All Saints’ Church, Westbury for the final session of their Saints Alive! Creative workshops programme.

It's taking place on Tuesday, August 24 from 1pm to 4pm.

All that’s required is a desire to write – it doesn’t matter how experienced you are, or if you’ve never written – this session is for all and all materials will be supplied.

Beth Thomas, Churchwarden said: “We have been really pleased to welcome over 30 people this summer who have been inspired by the beautiful building, met new people and found a warm welcome.

"We are pleased at the response and looking at how we might continue the workshops in the future."

The first two half day ceramic and art workshops have been a great success and people said: “It was a really lovely day, everyone was really friendly”.

“Great experience, including coffee break with cake! Met new people. Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Noticed things in church I had not seen before.”

“It was brilliant but would like to have stayed longer! This is a great use of our church”.

The Saints’ Alive! workshops aim to share the beautiful church building with the community of Westbury and beyond and are supported by a Wiltshire Council community area grant.

All Saints’ Church is now open everyday for visitors. If you haven’t been in for a long time why not pop in and rediscover it?

Recently-installed information banners were funded by a Cultural Recovery Fund Grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Department of Digital, Culture, Music and Sport to help support the visitor economy of Westbury.

These explain significant parts of the church building helping visitors to find out more.

Spaces on the creative writing workshop are limited and booking is essential on Eventbrite or www.whtministry.org.uk.
