Gloucester Citizen: Wednesday 17th December 1986 – Pub’s Present Aids Charities: Customers at a Stroud pub have presented Christmas charity cheques to five local organisations. Regulars at the Woodcutters Arms in Whiteshill, who collected the money at fund-raising events during the past year, handed the cash to representatives of the good causes at a special meeting. Altogether £350 was shared between the Ruscombe Over 60’s Club, the Whiteshill Gold and Silver Club, the Paganhill Autumn Leaves, Ruscombe United Reform Church and St. Paul’s church, Whiteshill. Mrs Jean Dorsett represented the Woodcutters charity committee and made the presentation.
The Woodcutters Arms, in the upper part of Whiteshill, called ‘last orders’ for the final time in the Spring of 2007. In November 2008 an application was submitted to turn the Woodcutters Arms into residential use.
