VEHICLE PARKING AT MANOR FARM
The sign at the entrance to the churchyard shows that car parking is at a little distance up the road, and this is at Manor Farm. It is by kind permission of the owner, Keith Harris, but it should be emphasised that Manor Farm is a fully working farm with large machinery moving around so visitors are requested to park sensibly in the yard in front of the large barn and not on the road itself or surrounding areas of grass. On special occasions the adjacent field may be made available for parking. It should be noted that parking is at a farm yard or in a field, with in places, an uneven surface, and not formally designed, modified or approved as a car park so that visitors do so at their own risk.

SUMMER CHARITY GIVING FUND RAISING COFFEE MORNING
The Coffee Morning, Open Garden and Plant Sale at Bagmore Farm on 23rd July raised an amazing £1,020, and enormous thanks go to everyone involved with baking, Bric-a-Brac, Raffle etc. and of course to those who came and supported it. It is a great boost to the funds for giving out next Christmas. Just one of the local charities that we hope to support is Read Easy (www.readeasy.org.uk) which gives one-to-one help to people who have yet to learn to read and it is hoped to have a short talk about this at the next PCC Meeting to which you would be welcome to come. Volunteers are always being sought by them.

ANNUAL RIDE and STRIDE
The Annual Ride and Stride in aid of the Dorset Historic Churches Trust takes place in September. Peter Williams (840220) will be riding and David and Diana Masters (840288) will be striding. Sponsorship would be most welcome – not forgetting that half of all that is raised comes back to Silton Church.

HARVEST FESTIVAL AND HARVEST LUNCH
Our Harvest Festival Matins will be held on 9th October at 10.30 a.m.  Following the service, the Harvest Lunch will be held in the Village Hall at 12.30 p.m.  The cost will be £6.  Please contact Anne Bridge (01963 31983) or Diana Masters (01747 840288) to book.

PCC MEETING
Next PCC Meeting: November 15th at 5 p.m. in the Village Hall.

FOOD BANK
There is always a collection box in the Church porch for donations to the Food Bank in Gillingham which is regularly emptied (there are some lists inside it indicating what they are most pleased to receive) and they are always very grateful.
