From Ian Millard:
We have 9 old stacking tables that we are about to take to the tip. If any wants them, let me know (email@example.com) and they are yours to collect. Each table top is 60cm by 90cm and 73cm high. They can be placed edge to edge to make a larger table and will stack in one large pile.

REMINDER – FOOD BANK COLLECTION
Until Christmas, I am now collecting non-perishable food items from the residents of South Wraxall and delivering them to the Storehouse Food Bank in Trowbridge. Please look in your cupboards for any items that you wish to donate and drop them off in the special boxes in the Church, the Club or at the back door of 27 Ivy Lane.
Many thanks for supporting this worthy cause.
From Patricia Bailey:
A ginger and white cat has been knocked down at Churchfields by the entrance to the footpath, unfortunately he hasn’t made it, not sure when it happened.
From Bradley Gill:
To All South Wraxall Residents
During the summer I volunteered and raised money for STOREHOUSE FOODBANK Trowbridge. I would like to help again from now until Christmas by collecting non perishable food items to donate to the food bank to help those who have hit hard times.
Storehouse Foodbank is a project that aims to support families, couples and individuals in short term need of food and toiletries.
In April 2010 the food bank opened a referral centre. Over the years we have seen a continual growth in need and based on our latest figures serve an average of 1,400 people a year. This equates to approximately 12,600 meals.
People who access Storehouse find themselves in difficult circumstances often through no fault of their own. They may have been made redundant or have lost work through severe illness. Some people are attempting to rebuild their life after the breakdown of a marriage or partnership or they could be recovering from a situation of domestic violence.
If you can help by donating food items, please leave them in the white box at the back of the church, or drop then off by the back door of 27 Ivy Lane. I will delivering items to Storehouse in Trowbridge until Christmas.
Thank you very much
From Jean Atkin:
After a summer of hosting free-range bats, the church is in need of a deep-down clean. We would like it to look good for our service on Remembrance Sunday, when we welcome a larger than average congregation.
If you are able to offer a little help please join us from 10:00 am onwards next Thursday, 9 November. We do have brushes, dusters, polish etc, but extra ones are always useful.
From Charli Boddington:
Just found our cat after a week of being missing – in the field right by South Wraxall House. I spotted him quite by chance as I was walking past with the children, and he’s now safely back home again. He’s not quite as ravenous as last time so either he’s doing an amazing job of hunting, or he’s found someone to feed him!
Thanks to those who emailed with ‘leads’!
