Harvest Thanks from Winterborne Houghton

A very BIG thank you to all who decorated our Church in Houghton for our Harvest Service last Sunday, and also for all the non perishable gifts that were donated for the Blandford Food Bank, which I delivered last Tuesday.

Link to Hope Family and Elderly Shoebox Appeal

 St James Church in Milton Abbas has successfully co ordinated the creation of many shoeboxes for this appeal in the past few years. Link to Hope is a Christian Charity established since 1991 and dedicated to rebuilding lives and communities in Eastern Europe. Now all our churches are involved and we will be collecting items that can be added to a shoebox that can be given to a family or elderly. There are suggestions for the type of items required in the leaflet below. If you can donate either items for the boxes or £2 towards transport and distribution please talk to your churchwardens or contact Paula Kelsall (880258)

New residents in Houghton

All the work by the young people and Helen in St Andrew's Churchyard resulted in a well deserved Wildlife Friendly Award which will be awarded soon. Well one!
Things have been happening in Houghton, as Helen Heathfield writes

'In the bug hotel, families of woodlice have moved in, lots of snails in amongst the bricks and evidence of spiders.

You'll see the red poppies have been out and in the October church yard tidy up we'll be prepping the beds for a better display next year and years to come.'
