Everyone at the Tithebarn Workshops would like to say a big thank you to the Clean up Bradford on Avon – Club For all their hard work in clearing Pound Lane yesterday.

Meet and Greet

Too doing her meet and greet at the Tithebarn Workshops

No… Mary at Stone Paper Scissors hasn’t started doing a new range of draft excluders… this is Roo doing her meet and greet for customers at the Tithebarn Workshops.

With the weather improving again and the bank holiday coming up this Monday, things are picking up down here, so why not pop down for a cream tea in our beautiful gardens and a spot of retail therapy?

Doggy Paddle!

I was just dropping off some more Tithebarn Workshop leaflets at the Bradford on Avon Tourist Information Centre this morning when I came across this event organised by local pet shop and cafe ‘Doghouse‘.

Always great to see events that bring people to the town and a big congratulations to the Doghouse for this innovative idea.

He was an absolute gentleman and created the most exquisite, timeless work.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.

Here are a few examples of Anthony’s extraordinary work…
