Thirty Days Hath September!

Another summer has almost passed and is just about to disappear

 With a slight nip in the air making it feel crisp, cool and clear.

 With harvest time here and the gentle start of falling leaves

 It will be time to pack away the T-shirts and bring out the long sleeves!

 As the schools and colleges return, and the shooting season well underway

 Visit the nearby Lady’s Wood Shooting School with instructions on how to hit the clay!

 The wonderful Dime Notes are performing at Chipping Sodbury Town Hall

 And The Sodbury Players are putting on The Edge of Darkness to enthral us all!

 The twice-yearly MOP Fair also takes place with a hint of a bygone age

 When agricultural labourers and their tools were available for all to engage.

 So during this ‘show off’ season come to The Moda House for a break and treat

 At Number 1 High Street which offers the very best in a meet and greet!

It’s that time once again for the fireworks to light up the night sky

 With the silver sparklers whirring round, and the fiery flames reaching up high!

 The darker autumn evenings are starting to feel crisp, clear and cool

 And on the ground the gold, red and brown leaves create a colourful and crunchy whirlpool!

 As usual there is plenty going on in Chipping Sodbury and the local neighbourhood

 From concerts to Fayre’s, and even a 1940’s Sweetheart Ball to recreate the vintage mood!

 On Remembrance Sunday the Sodbury Slog will get underway yet again

 Over a scenic and hilly route with muddy, wet and super challenging terrain!

 At the Moda House a new wireless fire system has been installed and updated

 With wiring and detectors removed that were obsolete and antiquated!

 Once the fireworks have fizzled out the countdown to Christmas will commence

 With heaps of pop up shops appearing just adding to temptation and more expense!

 So come for a visit and jolly to enjoy the Chipping Sodbury and our little hotel

 And be captured by our house and its charms and full under the town’s magic spell!

There is a definite nip in the air and the central heating switch is firmly back on

 With the long, lazy hazy days of summer now sadly long gone.

 October is a month of conkers, pumpkins and everything that is Halloween

 From the costumes to the toffee apples and jack ‘o’ lanterns creating the spooky scene!

 Life in Chipping Sodbury is busy and hectic with plenty of action and activities

 With The Sodbury Players performing, and The Amadeus Concert to delight and please!

 Here at The Moda House the re-wiring is finally finished and another new bathroom installed,

 And the heating and hot water systems have been serviced and completely overhauled.

 Why not come for an Autumn visit and enjoy our homemade blackberry jam and marmalade,

 Plus some seasonal spiced stewed homegrown plums – Duncan’s latest crusade!

 But if you need even more encouragement, motivation or another reason.

 Visit Westonbirt Arboretum for its spectacular and stunning vibrant ‘fall’ season!

 So just before the clocks go back, come to Chipping Sodbury for a little get-away

 And stay at The Moda House where a warm welcome will ensure a wonderful and happy stay!
