Hi Friend,

The Swan is decked with all sorts of festive cheer and will be hosting plenty of reasons to celebrate:
  • Green Room Winter Fayre
  • Living Advent Calendar
  • Auction bargains to be had
Read on for more details of a packed week ahead.


GRS students are running another of their famous Winter Fayres at The Pub today from 4:30 - 9:30. There's a real mix of stalls such as arts & crafts in The School Room, live music from The Coach House, a South African BBQ, more food options, a raffle and Santa's Grotto too. Make sure you see them all. Take a look here to remind you of the previous Fayre.


We are delighted to host again the Windsor Living Advent Calendar. This years performance by GRS is a closely guarded secret but certain to be another festive performance. This is scheduled for 6:15 this evening and is an event not to be missed! Get in the mood with a look back to the last performance.


Bikes rather than sledges will be on display on Sat as The Bike Kitchen returns from 11-Noon. Want help with puncture repair, chain lubrication, tyres pumping, safety check, or just a good old chat about anything bike related? There is a gentle guided ride from 11.30am suitable for all riders and bikes. For more info, please go to our WCH page.


Simon, our local games inventor, is hosting another evening of exciting board games. Some you will be familiar with, some will be totally new. He will help setting games up and getting you going. Why not join in, meet some new people and try a game over a pint? Everybody welcome, no need to book a place.


Another opportunity to join this friendly group of cribbage players meeting in The Bar at 7:00 on Tue. This is an informal group meeting with a view to playing on a regular basis. You don't need to know the game, the experienced players will be explaining all the rules and helping novices through the whole process.


He is back again at 7:30 on Wed 8 Dec. Although his questions will be as challenging as ever there is no excuse for not being prepared. The rounds this week will be on Body and Mind; 21st Century; Money and Power; Pies and Pints; Cinema. Get thinking and book your table via


Spoilt for choice this week as Dublicious offer chicken or lamb curry with vegetarian option of chickpea and spinach curry and finally seabass fillets. For full details please follow this link. Order by noon on Thu for collection from The Swan 6-6:30 Fri 10 Dec.


Time is running out. The Swan Online auction closes at 7pm on Sunday 5th December. There are lots of lovely items that would make perfect Christmas presents. All proceeds go to The Swan renovations. Take a look here to see what is on offer.


It's Christmas! And time for The Swan Advent Calendar. What's behind the doors? Come back each day at noon and we will be unveiling a new offer from the team at The Swan. There will be something for everyone over the month building up to Christmas. Enjoy!


Sincere thanks to all who provided delicious cakes, and to those who bought them. We were delighted to welcome Nick from Windsor Homeless Project, his son George and one of their guests, Rick. We raised a magnificent £160 for our community charity of the year.


Santa will be in his grotto at The Swan on both Sat 11 and Sat 18 Dec from 10:00 - 12:00. He is proving very popular so book your 10 minute slot (£5 per child) by emailing


With Christmas shopping well underway you may be spending a lot of time ordering on-line  If so please remember the option to use Easy Fundraising. This won't cost you a penny but will provide some wonderful additional funds for The Swan. £1,593.60 has already been raised by happy shoppers.


The Weekday Warriors were joined for part of this week by Freddie from GR6 and, all be it briefly, by Lexie. Freddie helped the team to install the final elements of insulation on The Kitchen wall whilst Lexie insisted on showing us how to measure angles! With insulation now installed, and boarding of the walls nearly complete the plan is to lay the new floor in the coming week. Fingers crossed! For the very latest images of the work please view our Renovation Diary.

The Swan has got its festive hat on. Come and see for yourself and join in the fun.

Warm regards,

The Friends of The Swan
