Wobbly Cottage Bakery Relocates To Village Square

In 2 weeks time Rich and Dani will be closing the doors of their little bakery at Redlands Yard. Fear not they say, as they will be making a return just down the road in a very exciting new space in the heart of Broadwindsor.

They are currently working very hard on turning The Old Post Office (the old village shop) into their brand new bakery and the space has bags of potential. There will be new bakes, cakes and pastries as well as Local Honey, Beewrapuk will be back in stock plus so much more…
They also have a coffee machine incoming!

The Wobbly CottageThey hope to be back open by the second week in October, but with all things that require building works, this has to be fluid. Follow them on their Facebook page for updates and progress – clcik HERE.

They’re looking forward to seeing you all at the start of their new and exciting chapter!

We wish you every success Rich & Dani 🙂

Headteacher Leaving Broadwindsor Primary School

The Governing Body at Broadwindsor Primary School have released the news that Mr. Philip Smith, Headteacher has made the personal decision to step back from headship at this time in order to pursue new projects and challenges.

All are sorry to see him go. The Governors commented: “His positive leadership and enabling approach has seen the school progress in many ways both in terms of the open and inclusive environment the school has become and in terms of the learning opportunities the school provides. He leaves the school in a very strong position. I am sure you join us in wishing Mr Smith well on the next phase of his career and future.

Mr Smith wanted to thank the whole learning community, staff, pupils, parents and wider community for their amazing support they have given him during the time he has been here and especially the challenging times throughout the Covid pandemic. He also wanted to reassure everyone that he will continue to lead the school and support the leadership transition in a professional manner.

The Governing Body has already embarked on the task of recruiting a new Headteacher for the school. Governors are being supported by Dorset Council and the Salisbury Diocese in the recruitment process and it is anticipated that this will be completed in May for a new Headteacher to be in place for September.

Chairman of the P.T.A. Martin Burt commented: Mr. Smith has had a fantastic influence on the whole school.  His hard work and dedication as head teacher has had a positive impact on the children, teaching staff and parents alike.  Mr. Smith leaves big shoes to fill and we wish him the best of luck in the future.

Goodbye & Good Luck!

…to Vikki & Spike, now ex-landlords of Broadwindsor’s pub, The White Lion.

Vikki and Spike are off to pastures new, closer to family at The New Inn, Park Lane Off Church Street, Blagdon, Bristol, BS40 7SB. The venue appears very attractive situated by Blagdon lake and several locals have already declared promises to take a trip to visit them and of course, all will be welcomed.

Thank you so much Spike and Vikki for everything you have contributed to our village while you have been here. You have been an invaluable part of our community. You will be sorely missed but we all wish you both wealth, health and prosperity in your new venture.

What’s happening to the pub?

The Parish Council is waiting to hear back from Palmers Brewery re: negotiations of the building becoming a community run pub: initial village feedback would indicate the situation is fraught with problems as anyone taking over is subject to Palmers’ rules, ales and pricing. Click HERE to view the latest local  news at the time of publishing…. we wait.
