Welcome to the Rudloe and environs website.

 

Here you will find news, articles and photos of an area that straddles the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in north-west Wiltshire.

 

Contributions in the form of articles or photos are welcome. Even those with completely contrary views to mine!

 

Thanks to the website builder 1&1 and Rob Brown for the original idea.

The European Union flag flies above Big Ben at the Unite for Europe rally on 25th March 2017

The rally in Parliament Square
'Never gonna give EU up' in Parliament Square

One of two amazing coincidences on the day ... I was in Trafalgar Square watching the march go past and waiting for an opportune moment to join and when I did, whose should be the first face I saw ... that of Samantha Nicholas, a Rudloeite (from Springfield Close no less) with daughter Lucia

Here we see Samantha looking in wonderment (?) at Peter Tatchell who was one of the speakers at the rally
'Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket, never let it fade away ...'
Unfortunately, any strong, hard(ish), British cheese for me - strong Cheddar, Lancashire, Cheshire, Stilton ...

My favourite banner

The march started in Park Lane, passed through Oxford Street, Piccadilly, Trafalgar Square and Whitehall before ending up at the rally in Parliament Square where there were no end of speakers, from Nick Clegg and Tim Farron on the political side through to students, with all manner of folk in between.

 

Unfortunately, after more than two hours of speeches, Monsieur Clegg's speech was still awaited so I sidled off to the pub for a pint of Naked Ladies (Twickenham brewery I believe and a fine pint it was) and a large bowl of olives - how the other half lives eh!
