The Holy Trinity News
James Thomas and his wife Lizzie Peacock are professionals in music. They come with many years of experience in teaching singing and making it all fun – especially for young people.
The BRAND NEW TRINITY YOUTH CHOIR is about making singing part of growing up. We truly believe that singing improves mental health and well-being, creates friendships that otherwise wouldn’t be there, and opportunities to perform and feel really good about themselves.
EVERYBODY WELCOME and all the teaching, singing and having fun is COMPLETELY FREE

People are being asked to stay at home and stand on thier doorsteps at 11am as a mark of remembrance.

Holy Trinity Church has agreed a donation of £300 to help Chapelhay Community Playgarden Association continue to provide activities and events in the playground at the heart of Chapelhay.
Following a lengthy closure, Aster Housing reopened the playground on 31st July and the Playgarden Association held a Covid-secure ‘come back’ event with the help of Dorset Council in August. Since then however, the infection rate has soared nationally, regulations have tightened, and the group has had to cancel its October Apple Day.
Chair of the Playgarden Clare Sutton said “These are extraordinarily difficult and fast-moving times for everyone but the reopening of the playground was in my view long overdue. Kids have to play somewhere. Over the past 16 years we’ve done our best to offer something extra, arts and crafts, games, food activities, but of course it is so difficult now.
“We are incredibly grateful to Holy Trinity Church for this donation. It means we can purchase equipment such as hoops and goalposts which will help us to ‘future proof’ further activities. We’ll also get some more litter pickers as the kids love those, and renew our Public Liability Insurance when we are confident of being able to organise our next activity. The support and patience of Holy Trinity at this difficult time helps us to remain positive.”
Vicar of Holy Trinity Canon Andrew Gough said, “We work closely with the local community and continue to support this group in particular because what they do is so important to local children and families. None of us know what the next few months will bring, but we want to ensure that they are able to bounce back when the time comes”.Read More
