Strollers News

Our first walk of the season was an old favourite, from the Wise Man in West Stafford through the grounds of Kingston Maurward and back along the river path in Stinsford.

We noticed that the Manor House in Kingston Maurward now has a Blue Plaque stating that it was once the home of Isaac Singer, of sewing machine fame.  Also, we saw that Stinsford churchyard now contains (in addition, of course, to the heart of Thomas Hardy) not only the grave of Cecil Day-Lewis, one-time Poet Laureate, but also that of his second wife, the former Jill Balcon, who died of a brain tumour in 2009.

We are grateful to our Archdeacon Paul Taylor for his ringing endorsement of the benefits of walking, delivered as part of his sermon last month!  So now you know it’s good for you, why not join us on our next walk?  This will be led by Stella and will take place on July 29th, at Moreton.  Meet by the Old School House at 10.00am.  As part of the walk we will be visiting the church at Moreton to see the famous Whistler windows.  We promise it won’t be as long as the one that Paul was describing, which I believe was 43 miles!  Afterwards we will drive to the Frampton Arms for lunch.

Then we plan to support “Ride and Stride”, on 9th September.  At the moment, we think we might visit 3 churches on Portland, so put the date in your diary and watch this space for more details.

    Holy Trinity Church Roof

    All the scaffolding is down and we can report that the roof is now, as far as we are aware, waterproof. This of course came with a huge cost but needed to be done. We are now applying for grants to see if we can cover more of the cost of £40.000 to pay for it. Last December we received £10,000 from the Muton Trust for which we are extremely grateful. Any kind donations thankfully received! We are about £12,000 short of our target.

Vicar’s letter for July 2018/August 2018

“God doesn’t have a holiday!

Working through a desk groaning with paper on a glorious sunny summer morning, I just happened to wish out loud that I was on holiday. However, I was soon reminded by a parishioner of the wonderful truth that God doesn’t have holidays.
