Fabric Sale – Big Success

The Great Dorset Fabric Sale, held over last week-end, generated huge interest with large queues waiting to gain entrance. It looks like the sale might generate in excess of £9,000 for the charity Naomi Hospice & Jacks Place for Children. A huge thank-you to all the helpers and those who donated the materials etc.

Now it is over £10000, including £1000 promised to Lisa by a bank.

River Weed

As the weather warms up the river weed is getting hold!
Can riparian owners please NOT cut weed and let it float down the river to their neighbours…..
Please cut and leave on your river bank or otherwise dispose of it at the dump in Blandford.
Many residents are elderly and it is impossible for them to clear the river once it clogs up.
Thank you very much indeed.

A Night in the Church!

Four stalwart women braved a very cold and windy night on Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent) and slept in our unheated church in order to raise funds for the maintenance of the building. They had to bring everything they needed with them but were deprived of the comfort of their warm beds, bathrooms etc. They all found the experience a challenge but were rewarded by a gamut of emotions and a warm breakfast provided by Vicky Gumm on the Thursday morning! The women in question are Carol Neilson (from Tarrant Hinton), Diane Huxley, Fiona MacEwen and Annie Colligan. More photos to follow.

There is still time to sponsor their effort, either by donating in person to any of them or through JustGiving on

http://www.justgiving.com/Annie-Colligan. 25% Gift Aid will be added to all donations from tax payers.
