Village Voice by Rosie Warrillow, 17th November

Last weekend’s Christmas Fair in aid of Devon Air Ambulance was a terrific success in spite of the dreadful weather!  There was a great choice of gift ideas on eleven stalls manned by the enthusiastic stall holders; cards, childrens clothes, pictures, toiletries, beautiful wood turned items and pretty fabrics. Local ladies made cakes and tea and coffee and folk pitched in to help with putting up the tables. There was also a raffle and the organisers would like to thank everyone who helped on the day. A total of £200 pounds was raised for this most worthy cause and everyone who came had a lovely time, did you miss it? There will be another one next year!                                                                                               

Bright, warm sunshine greeted the congregation of St Andrews church last weekend for the Remembrance Day service. Around 30 people marked the tribute by the War Memorial to the fallen of two world wars, the names being read out by Mr John Harcus, the R.B.L representative for our village. The service was lead by Mission Community Reader Mr Michael Tagent. The Last Post was played in church and Mrs Vanda Irish played the organ for the wonderful hymns which included I vow to thee my country. This Sunday St Andrews will have a  Holy Communion service to celebrate ‘Christ the King’ in the last service before the season of Advent begins. The service will be led by Rev. Neil Barker and will start at the usual time of 11am.
