Scouts Logo Horizontal BlackUpdates from the two Explorer Scouts Charlie Dovey and Archie Lloyd, who are off next year to volunteer in Kenya.

Our next fundraising event will be a Christmas Raffle on Sunday 9 December in the Brewers Arms at the Carol evening Ben & Leanne host for the churches. We very much look forward to seeing you there! There will also be an opportunity throughout December to ‘Guess how many sweets in a jar’ which again will be kept on the bar at the Brewers for those wishing to enter the competition.

On Saturday 12 January we are holding our first ‘Breakfast Café’ in Martinstown Village Hall from 10.00am – 12 noon. Breakfast rolls, tea, coffee, cakes and books will be available to purchase, if you would like to join us, you will be made very welcome.

Again, we would welcome any individual support from locals in addition to sponsorship from local businesses operating within the valley.

They are currently fundraising for this trip, (more information on that below) and asked the expedition leader, Martyn Hastings, MBE from DES for some more information for you all on the community projects that they can expect to be working towards on their arrival next Summer.

Food Bank

Many thanks to the generous congregations at both Martinstown and Winterbourne Steepleton harvest services who donated food. I have now tested the capacity of my car boot to the full twice this month!

The Food Bank was very pleased to receive the many bags and boxes of packet and tinned foods. The need for the Food bank continues and usage increases in the winter months.

Please leave tinned foods, especially tinned fish and tinned vegetables in the usual collection points of Martinstown church and the village shop (thanks to Karen). It is also useful to have packet foods, such as, biscuits, rice and pasta. Please also consider donating bathroom necessities, such as, toothpaste, soap, shampoo and toilet rolls.

Many thanks on behalf of the Food Bank volunteers and clients.

Waste Watch Scheme
- operating in the village.

Although papers can be separated and recycled with the bi-weekly refuse collection this scheme means that the local parish can financially benefit from separate treatment of newspapers.

There are two collection points each located at the Parish Office and the car park of the Village Hall by means of a green bin or box.

Your used newspapers and magazines can be bundled into manageable piles and securely tied with sturdy string. Newspapers and magazines should be bundled separately but can be placed in the same boxes and are regularly collected.

Please use this method of recycling where possible as credit is received via the current scheme to the parish for use towards local matters.
