Ride and Stride Result 2017

Following this year’s Ride and Stride event our parish organiser, Anthony de Chazal, has received a letter from the Treasurer of Dorset Historic Churches Trust enclosing a cheque for £335, this being 50% of the funds raised by participants from Holy Trinity. The money raised by Anthony, who cycled to a large number of Dorset churches, and members of the Sociable Strollers, who visited four churches on Portland, was more than double that raised last year.

This annual event raises funds for Dorset Historic Churches Trust in its important role of making grants to churches in the county for their preservation and enhancement. Half of what is collected by Ride and Stride is returned to the church in question.

Maybe some readers might wish to join the organisation as a Friend. You can read about its work in the Annual Report, copies of which are at the back of the church and you will also find application forms there.
The letter to Anthony concludes with a handwritten note “Thank you so much for this terrific support.”

Information received from Dorset Historic Churches Trust:

    Holy Trinity Church Roof

    All the scaffolding came down at the end of June 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; and we hope to be successful this November for a further grant of £8,000. Any kind donations thankfully received! We are about £12,000 short of our target to replenish our much diminished funds.. IF the sale of St Nicholas goes without a hitch then the PCC has agreed to make up the shortfall from the sale proceeds.

Vicar’s letter for October 2018

“I’m a country person at heart! I was brought up in a small country town in North Cornwall with a thriving market each week. Sadly it is all now long gone. But as children my brothers and I used to love to go to the livestock market and watch all the farmers bringing their livestock and produce to market. At Harvest thanksgiving we would take our harvest gifts to church and I remember a wonderful harvest choral evensong and a hearty harvest supper which everybody was involved with.”
