Live music, playful performance and puppetry combine to tell a tale of one man and his dog who rediscover the thrills of adventure! Mr Middle has created a predictable life of routine for himself and his loyal dog, Shackleton. Together they enjoy simple walks and evenings in, but Shackleton longs for more adventure. Mr Middle keeps his world as small as possible, but one day the garden gate is left ajar…

Old ITV programme about the Charfield Railway Crash 1928
Locals sharing memories at the Railway Tavern Pub in Charfield. People interviewed: Mrs Hazel, then "Jibby' Jones, then Reginald Pagett.
Thanks to Graham Tyndall for sharing this with us.
"It was broadcast on ITV many years ago and they kindly sent me a video of the program.
My father is in the video talking about the lady in black and the children's shoes. He worked on the railway in Charfield as a Ganger and we lived in a cottage just below the Plough Inn.
When the cottages were demolished we moved to Charfield Green on the corner right next to the railway line."
Touch Rugby is a fantastic sport for keeping fit and allows men & women of all abilities to take to the field together.
You don't have to have had any rugby experience at all to play. It's also great fun!
We play on a Monday night from 6:30pm until 7:30pm, at the Charfield Playing Fields behind the Village Hall.
Please text 07970853871 if you're interested and we'll put you on the list for session updates.
