All are invited to come along to Bernards’ Place in the Square at 6.30pm on Thursday, 30th November to see the village’s Christmas tree lights be switched on for the festive season 🙂
This will be followed by carol singing, minced pies and mulled wine served at The White Lion.
Get into the Christmas spirit and join in!
Wishing one and all a peaceful and merry Christmas. Do you recall in 2020 when we were all locked down and couldn’t visit each other? That December, Rev. Jo inspired the village to create Advent windows… please enjoy it again.
Songs from the 1950’s, 1960’s Rock ‘n’ Roll era can be expected from the boys this Friday night with a few festive rockers too!
Starting at 7pm, the village welcomes back the Silver Lining Band. They played at the Comrades Hall as part of our village’s Jubilee celebrations and packed out the White Lion when they played there for the pub’s first music night at the end of September.
Entry is free but you might want to get there early to secure a seat! The kitchen will be providing bar meals.

There will be a short outdoor service with carols and the Christmas story led by Rev. Jo this Saturday, starting at 4pm in Bernards’ Place by the Christmas tree and shelter.
Wrap up warm and bring a torch!
There will be refreshments afterwards in The White Lion 🙂

As they did last year, with an extensive delivery list, the Scout Group are offering to post your Christmas cards for only 30p! A first class stamp is 95p and a second class, 68p.
Most households will have already received a leaflet through their letterbox. Going Green – they will be phasing them out gradually over the coming years in response to feedback.
Locally, there will be yellow post boxes in our lovely Broadwindsor Community Stores, The Royal Oak in Drimpton and Beaminster‘s Co-op. Running from 5th December – 12 noon, 17th December.
PLEASE NOTE: There are changes to their delivery areas each year and they are unable to deliver outside of these areas or to overseas.
Can You Help?
They need willing volunteers who are able to spend four to five hours spread over a two week period at the beginning of December to sort or deliver Scout Post in our area. Volunteers provide a useful and popular community service as well as raising much needed funds to support your local Scout Groups. You will be making a real difference to local young people and be giving something back to the community. Don’t delay, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Scout Post is run by Dorchester & West Dorset District Scout Council

The Churchfitters is a folk band like no other. A double bass made out of a saucepan. Heart-wrenching vocals accompanied by a musical saw or a glass harp. Foot-stompingly fast fiddle mixed with infectious funk-rock rhythms. And traditional tunes reinvigorated with mesmerising jazz sax.

The three virtuoso musicians from England and France strut their stuff on a stage that bristles with instruments – adding flute, banjo, dulcimer, tin whistle, guitar, ukulele, electric hub-cap bass-bouzouki and a sackful of percussion to their ensemble. And let’s not forget the unique ‘bing-bong’ machine made out of hack-saw blades!
