If you missed it last year then here's another chance to see "STALBRIDGE FOR SALE 1918, THE FASCINATING EXHIBITION BY STALBRIDGE HISTORY SOCIETY". In 1918 almost every house, farm and plot of land in Stalbridge was sold to the highest bidder during a 2 day auction by just one man... Lord Stalbridge. This enthralling exhibition takes you back to a time when you could buy an entire public house for the princely sum of £240...but only if you could afford it!
THIS EXHIBITION RUNS FROM 10AM TO 5PM ON THE 16TH AND 17TH NOVEMBER 2019 IN THE COMMUNITY HALL AT STALBRIDGE HALL, LOWER ROAD, STALBRIDGE.
The exhibition is free, but all donations are welcome.
Refreshments will be available.
There will also be an opportunity to meet The Stalbridge Archive Group and catch up on how the "Dig" is going at Stalbridge Park.
In the main hall from 10am to 3pm on the same weekend (16th and 17th November 2019) Tomorrow's Museum for Dorset Inflatable Museum comes to Stalbridge Hall! In collaboration with Artsreach, Tomorrow’s Museum for Dorset on Tour has been bringing the Inflatable Museum to rural communities around Dorset exploring the county’s rich history and cultural heritage. This tour is a great opportunity to bring the experience of visiting the Museum to Dorset’s towns and villages offering a free, fun drop-in to learn about the Museums current redevelopment. Take part in engaging activities and handle real objects from our collection including: Archaeology, Natural History, Social History and Fossils. There will be children trails, and our popular ‘Make and Create’ workshops inspired by the Museum’s collections.
We look forward to meeting you!
ADMISSION IS FREE and everyone is welcome - Suitable for all ages!

The Community Information Office in Stalbridge has announced that they will no longer be opening their doors from 1st November 2019.

So if you fancy a cuppa and chat at the Hub, in a friendly atmosphere then pop down every Friday from 2pm to 4pm and join in the fun!

Stalbridge Table Tennis Club are offering Table Tennis Coaching at Stalbridge Hall for school years 6 to 12, every Monday from 7.30pm to 8.30pm. Have Fun and Get better at Table Tennis !
Table tennis is an inexpensive and sociable sport where skill and co-ordination, rather than physical strength are key. It is a game of brain rather than brawn. It is a sport where girls and boys can compete on an equal footing.
At Stalbridge Table Tennis Club our players have over 20 years of coaching experience between them, including leading the Wiltshire junior county side for several seasons. Members of Stalbridge Club's Yeovil and District League and Cup treble winning side will lead the coaching, ensuring that every participant gets the individual attention they need.
We are so confident that each young person will enjoy their experience that the first session they come to is FREE, and then sessions are only £2 per person thereafter.
Whether you want to aim towards playing competitively or just want some tips to be able to beat your friends/parents, we are confident you will find what you are looking for at Stalbridge.
Parents and guardians are welcome to stay and watch or leave and come back at the end of the session.
Bats and balls will be provided, though you are welcome to bring your own bat if you prefer.
For more information please contact either Chris Watkins (parent governor at SNHS, with children both at SNHS and WIlliam Barnes) or Stuart Angell (Stalbridge CLub Captain (with children both at Stalbridge Primary and Gillingham schools) on:
