Unfortunately the last page of the Around Hemyock item is missing from the Aug/Sept.issue of the Parish Pump so for your delight here it is!

 

We remember all those known to us who are unwell think very especially of Dr Mark Couldrick

By the time this issue has been distribte, David and I, like many, will have enjoyed a holiday. Cheyenne and Erika meanwhile will have been amongst a party of 10 Uffculme Academy students (including Johnny Atkinson from Culmstock) who have joined other students from around the country visiting China for 2 weeks. The Uffculme party will be in Beijing before moving to Qingdao. The itinerary includes visiting Tian'anmen Square and the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace and walking the Great Wall as well as having Mandarin lessons (with exam!), visiting homes and taking part in sports activities.

Whether you are holidaying at home or away, or are visiting this area, we hope the time will bring you rest and enjoyment.

As has become the custom a cream tea afternoon brought many visitors to Prings Farm and a huge amount of money was raised for cancer charities. A warm thanks to the organisers and to all who supported the event.

Cream teas leads me back to Wimbledon (sorry non tennis fans) where Federer has just beaten Murray in the semi final and our house (well me really!) breathes a sigh of relief. Time to pack for holiday methinks!

The mellowness which we usually experience during September brings us Harvest Festival which is celebrated in our churches and school. A wonderful time for us all to get together and give thanks for "All good gifts around us" So to all those who work on the land or in any capacity to bring us food and goods a heartfelt thank you

Any news you would like to share would be welcome.
