SAM & MARY TROTT'S DIAMOND WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

SAM & MARY TROTT's DIAMOND WEDDING DAY - 7th SEPT – from Mary's account of the day

“I had not put the house ready the night before so in a bit of a rush two tables were set, one savoury, one cakes + sweets. Samantha iced the cakes & had made one. The postman brought our Special delivery card from Our Queen. We were so proud. We were almost ready when the first guests arrived (just after 10.00am), Andrew & Christine, new to our village. Barb & Brian brought cheese scones and started helping with tea and coffee and Hazel with her tray of cream & jam scones. Friends were coming & going enjoying Sam's punch made with his home-made grape wine, sherry, vodka & lemonade. My wedding dress was on show + Wedding Album & large photos. All admired. Sam & I enjoyed every minute of the day! We were absolutely delighted how well our day was turning out to be with Family & Friends all making us feel so good and giving a helping hand where needed and John Shute for cutting the grass in his field for parking cars. Bless them all. The atmosphere was so warm and friendly with groups from Beaminster, Broadwindsor as well as Drimpton (and some from much further away). There was never less than five in our home all day – 129 people came! - and the last to leave left at about 10.45pm.
THANKS TO EVERYONE WE HAD A WONDERFUL DAY. You made it perfect!

Toilet Twinning raises funds to support sanitation and water work in some of the poorest countries.

Rainfall in September '17

The ‘Met’ Office description for the month of September, compared to the average, was summed up in very few words, cool and dull with average rainfall, so having kept my own rainfall figures since 2004, I had a look back to see how we had fared in relation to previous years and it was surprising to see how dry a month September often is. My lowest record for the month is 36 mm. in 2014 and my highest record of 111 mm for ’08. This month here in Drimpton I have recorded 130mm.(2016 95mm.) or 5.1 inches (2016 3.4 ins.)

2017 Flower Festival - 150th anniversary

The annual church Flower Festival was held on 22/23 July celebrating 150 years of St. Mary’s Church. The flower displays this year were magnificent and drew many comments of congratulations from visitors. The inclement weather meant that visitor numbers were down but the sun came out for the Sunday evening service when a full congregation raised the roof with some well known hymns, ably accompanied by Richard Heal on organ and Jonathan and Sally Jevons on trumpet and viola. The service was led by Team Rector Canon David Baldwin and the address was given by The Bishop of Sherborne The Right Revd. Karen Gorham.
After the service refreshments were served at ‘Kilverstone’ with a chance to chat to the Bishop and Rector. Thanks go to Hazel Hill for providing the venue.
At the time of counting over £900 was raised for the church and the Parochial Church Council express their deepest thanks to all those who arranged the displays, helped to set up and steward the church and all those who generously contributed.

Community Land Trust Update

Broadwindsor Group Parish CLT Update – June 2017
After a long delay a meeting took place on 25th May with Dorset County Partnerships planning department in Dorchester to discuss the pre-application proposal that BGP CLT submitted for the Drimpton site in March. This meeting was attended by members of the BGP CLT committee, our advisors from Wessex CLT Projects, Yarlington Housing Group and architects Trewin Design. The senior Planner was happy in principle with the site location and the proposed development in general. The CLT was requested to submit additional alternative design . for further discussion. These are in the process of being drawn up and will be submitted shortly. The CLT will be meeting again with the landowners shortly.
Membership of BGP SLT is growing and we would very much encourage others living within the Broadwindsor Group Parish area who have an interest in affordable housing to join the CLT. Membership forms are available on our website www.broadwindsorgroupparishclt.org or from any committee member.

ST MARY's CHURCH @ 150

H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y !
St MARY'S CHURCH is 150 YEARS OLD in JULY

St Mary's was originally consecrated as a Chapel of Ease on July 21st 1867 by the Bishop of Salisbury. On that day there were two services; at the actual consecration service only those who had received invitations were allowed in the chapel, the rest of the villagers who wished to be present having to remain in the churchyard. At the evening service, so the story goes, 27 candidates came forward for baptism, although only 18 were actually baptised that day, including several members of the Chubb family. When built the chapel was in the parish of Broadwindsor. Drimpton became a separate parish in 1982 at which time St. Mary’s became our Parish Church.
To mark this anniversary the ANNUAL FLOWER FESTIVAL is very special.
The theme is ‘CELEBRATION’.

St Mary's will be open on the weekend, SATURDAY, JULY 22nd and SUNDAY 23rd from 10.00am to 5.00pm each day.
Everyone will be most welcome to join us as we celebrate this major historic milestone.

Then, on SUNDAY 23rd at 6.00pm, there will be a CELEBRATION SONGS OF PRAISE when the preacher will be the Bishop of Sherborne. Again, everyone will be most welcome.

Copies of WHO WERE WE? our village book which charts 19th century life here will be available at £10. Of this cost £2.50 will go to St Mary's and £7.50 to Village Voices to help sponsor community events in the village now and in the future.
