Abbey Flyers Run and Chat

Would you like to get a little more active and meet new people? Are you unsure about how to take the first step? Why not kick off your weekend with a social #runandtalk?

On the first Friday evening of each month, Abbey Flyers have a Run and Talk session. We meet at 6pm outside The Riverside Community Centre. The sessions are aimed at all types of runners - from the newbie, to the returner, to the experienced runner. We will run a short lap of the town - with as many walk breaks as needed - and finish with a social get together at the pub.

As a special event leading into Carnival Month, on Friday 31st July at 6:00pm, we will have a 'Carnival Run and Talk' - we simply request that you make a small donation with all proceeds going to carnival.

Carnival Blast Off!

A family friendly, fun day out and Blast Off for Malmesbury Carnival 2019!

This will feature live music - a steel band and the Malmesbury Concert Band - not at the same time though - and in between a DJ.  There will be a gigantic climbing wall, a bouncy castle, face painting, sideshows and an exhibition match of  ‘walking football’. There will, of course, be a BBQ and a bar too.

The Children's Carnival Fun Run will also feature during the afternoon, for all age ranges

The Carnival committee are really delighted to be working closely with the team at the football club who have always been so supportive of Carnival in the past.
