Martinstown Circle Suppers Logos FINAL
Martinstown Circle Suppers

Despite the limitations that Covid has brought, this year the Martinstown Circle Supper group are proud to say that we are able to give a cheque for £1000 to our nominated charity for 2020, the Dorset County Hospital Chemotherapy Appeal.

This is because we were able to host our first round of suppers in January and February, and also hold a clothes swap at the beginning of this year and a very successful produce sale in October. 

For those of you who are new to the village, Martinstown Circle Suppers are a supper group where friends in the village take it in turns to host and be guests in each others homes. Hosts provide a meal and guests pay for their supper, and this way we raise money for a local charity. Over the past five years we have raised money to support four different local organisations, charities or national charities with a local connection. 

In addition to the suppers the group organises two or three additional fund raising activities during the year;  amongst which we have had barn dances, a car treasure hunt,  race night,  quiz and a 60’s night. We have a walking treasure hunt ready to roll out when the restrictions are lifted and plenty of other ideas for 2021.

We have decided to continue to raise funds for the local hospital chemotherapy appeal in 2021, and if you would like to be included in the suppers, or just have a conversation about what we do, please call either myself Cathie Seigal 01305 889244, Richard Benson 889466 or Roelie Newman 889192

Information from Dorset Council on the Corona Virus


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.
