Bring your cherished car(s) to the Langton Arms in the field outside the church, from 10.30 – 11.30am Sunday 23rd.
Display your adored chariot(!) (motorcycles welcome) and then maybe join us for a short tour to Blandford, Spetisbury, Tarrant Crawford and back to the Langton Arms. Maybe have a celebratory bevy afterwards. Hope to see you there.🚗🏎🏍🚙
A good turnout

We are planning to meet up at 5.30 p.m. on Sunday 16th December, just before the Carol Service, to sing a couple of verses in German and English of two German carols (words below), with the approval of the PCC. We’re commemorating the renewal of the crosses of our German soldiers but also remembering our English Tommy who is buried nearby. Please do join us on your way to the Carol Service, either to sing (a good warm up for what follows) or just to be there. Dress warmly and bring a flashlight (if you are singing), the words below, and umbrella if necessary. No Glühwein but I may be able to supply some Lebküchen! It should only take 10 minutes and we should be in good time to get a seat in the Church for the Carol Service….
Our village handyman, Darren Shepherd, has transformed our telephone kiosk into a thing of beauty once more. Notice the gold paint on the crowns. Thanks to Gerard & Shirley Wyllys for cleaning the interior and Ron Stanley for replacing the broken glass panes.
The Splash is running once more. Did someone turn the taps back on?
We are pleased to report that the Curry Lunch on 11 November in Tarrant Monkton & Launceston Village Hall raised the total sum of £885.00. Donations have been made of £590.00 to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, and £295.00 to The Royal Marines Charity.
Special thanks to Kate Graeme Cook who made a cake for auction, John Goode for creating postcards of the Tarrant Valley Quilters’ display of poppies at the Splash and to those who sent donations.
Many thanks to all who supported this worthwhile event.
