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.

ANNUAL RIDE AND STRIDE
The Annual Ride and Stride in aid of the Dorset Historic Churches Trust raised   505 (Peter Williams) and 377 (David and Diana Masters) and half of all that 882 comes back to Silton Church.   Very many thanks to all those who so generously sponsored them.

HARVEST LUNCH
The Harvest Lunch raised 386.   Together with a retained balance in the Charity Giving account this enabled a whole ShelterBox (590) to be sent from the PCC to Hurricane Matthew victims in Haiti.   The dry goods so generously donated were taken to the Trussell Trust Food Bank in Gillingham and were very gratefully received.

CHRISTMAS CHARITY GIVING FUND RAISING COFFEE MORNING
The Christmas Coffee Morning will be in the Village Hall on Saturday 19th November.   Contributions of Christmas goodies, baking, preserves, produce, Bric-a-Brac, etc. will be most welcome.   Please do come, and bring your friends.  10.00 a.m. – 12.00 noon.

CHRISTMAS TREE
This year presents put under the tree will once again be given to the Women’s Refuge.   The sort of thing they welcome are as toys, cosmetics – anything that would be welcome to someone arriving there with nothing.

PCC MEETING
Next PCC Meeting: November 15th at 5.00 p.m. in the Village Hall.

VISITING BELL RINGERS
There will be a visiting team of bell ringers in the afternoon of Saturday 5th November.

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.
