From Bradley Gill:
Another call for Christmas food items for the Storehouse Food bank in Trowbridge. Please put a selection in the box at the back of the church, or at The Club or the back door of 27 Lower South Wraxall.
Many thanks to Wilf Stanton, who drove me to Storehouse last week and helped me deliver all the food items donated from South Wraxall.
The staff at Storehouse were delighted to receive all the wonderful goods and pleased to know that we are continuing until Christmas. So please put some extra food items in your shopping this weekend!
Many Many thanks

‘Tis the season to be… warm again!
Jasmine & I still have lots of big bags of dry kindling available, at £5 per bag, for anyone who may be in need? We have more than enough, so if anyone is keen, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 07834906231 and I can bag it up for collection from 62a, or delivery within the village if needed.
(Almost) Festive wishes to all,
Richard, Jasmine, Oliver & Benjamin Charles-Jones

From Jill Lindquist:
Has anyone got any old carpets which would fit in my field gateways, to stop the mud! Can collect. Please ring Jill on 01225 868672

From Laura Lodge:
Next Thursday, 30th November at 6.30pm, the church flower team are gathering at The Yews, 51, Upper South Wraxall for a glass, a nibble and a chance to think about next year.
We already have some new members and if you would like to think about joining us, do come along. There are enough of us to mean that being on the rota is not onerous and expertise is definitely not a requirement! I find that my annual opportunity to decorate our lovely church and the times when we get together to decorate the church for annual events such as Remembrance Sunday and Christmas are very enjoyable.
Do come along even if you have only a tiny spark of interest!
From Chris Jones:
13 teams battled over 9 rounds (that’s rounds of questions, not drinks, although some teams managed both!) and we had a home victory for South Wraxall from Toby’s Jugs.
Winsley Warriors crept into 2nd place (helped by their recent South Wraxall transfer signing of Jane Shanklin) and third place was shared by Team Rioja and last year’s winners The Monkton Farleigh Mafia (who had difficulty guessing The Queen in the mystery voice round!).
The glory of the wooden spoon went to Crispy Bacon who managed a very consistent performance in every round, except a 9/10 in the last round!
Mispronunciation of the evening went to Quizmaster Mark Caroe — he did mean to say “Dishwasher”, or did he?
£800 profit resulted from this fun evening and the Quiz Master baton has been passed from Chris & Mark (after 5 years) to Louis and his Brother, Tobyn who kindly volunteered to run next year’s quiz.
