A Fox trail treasure hunt starts at 12 noon on Sunday May 18, starting from St Andrew’s Community Church. Children from St Philip’s Primary School worked with the Library Service’s Reader Development Officer, June Wentland, to create poems and pictures about Foxhill Foxes. These will form the trail for the Treasure Hunt, a free event offering prizes and refreshments.

Foxhill Big Read, run by the Council’s Library Service, will take place from 7pm to 8.15pm on Monday May 19, at Foxhill Community Centre. It will feature The Regency Detective, a novel set in Bath, by David Lassman and Terence James. Those who attend will have a chance to meet David and hear him reading from his book.

Who Do You Think You Are? runs from 2pm to 3.30pm on Thursday May 22, at the old MOD Nursery. The Council’s Local Studies Librarian will be there to offer advice on tracing your family history.

There will be an under 5s Storytime at Foxhill Community Centre on Friday May 23.

There will also be an exhibition about other places called ‘Foxhill’ in other parts of the world and the UK, including the Bahamas, Virginia USA, Sheffield and Swindon.
