Lost Dog

From Charlotte Atkins:

I have found a female dog (photo attached) in the lower village. The builders at the new building at Mr Svenson’s old house notified me as I walked past. She’s very friendly, with a brown leather collar but no tag. I have been in touch with the council who are sending out a dog warden to collect her, but I am sharing this photo in case someone knows her before they take her.

Ride and Stride, 14 September 2019

From Diane Aderyn:

Some of you will be aware of the annual Ride+Stride Day, when many of the churches in Wiltshire are open with refreshments, welcoming visitors to showcase the fascinating churches in the county at the same time as raising funds to help maintain this important heritage.

Wiltshire has a rich variety of styles of architecture and historical features to explore and Ride+Stride provides an ideal opportunity to visit some of our county’s beautiful churches.  If at the same time you can get friends, family, school and church members to sponsor you, you can make a valuable contribution to St. James’ funds.  Half of the money raised goes directly to St. James with the other half going to the Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust, enabling it to give grants for the upkeep and enhancement of churches and chapels around the county.  St.

James’ Church has received several grants from the Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust, the last being a £1,000 contribution in 2017 towards the renovation of the stained-glass windows.

Participants can take part on a bike, on foot or on horseback. Last year the ages of the 350 or so who took part ranged from 3 to 86, and over £62,000 was raised across the county.  There is no enrolment fee – just get a sponsorship form and instructions from Diane Aderyn or from the website (see below), and then plan your own route.  Whether you simply walk from one local church to another or more ambitiously aim to cycle to fifty churches, you are a welcome participant.  There are also prizes for the most successful individuals and parishes.

For more information contact Diane Aderyn (diane.walnuts@gmail.com) or visit http://www.wiltshirehistoricchurchestrust.org.uk, where there are 11 church trails (including one for the Bradford on Avon area) highlighting churches and chapels that can conveniently be visited in one journey (https://www.wiltshirehistoricchurchestrust.org.uk/churches/).
