Keevil Taylor Charity & Bun Service

Where: Keevil, Wiltshire at St Leonard's Church
When: 1st or 2nd Sunday Family service after Easter
Time: Family Service 3.30 pm


A local farmer, George Taylor, left a bequest in his will in 1852 to provide buns for local children at an annual service. It used to be held on the Wednesday after Easter but was moved to a Sunday in the 1980s to enable more children to attend without missing school.Now it takes place at the family service – these occur on the first Sunday of each month, so the Bun Service was usually in the first or second of these services after Easter and it’s now in the afternoon to make it easier for families to attend.The dating for this event is evolving but it’s still always a Sunday afternoon.

Helpful Hints
