Every piece of portable electrical equipment we

a list of “approved for use” electrical equipment.
There is a sticker on each plug to show this has
been done and when checked.
Monday the 27 th October is the date set this
If you have any electrical equipment at home
which you may use here bring it along for
The electrician will check it out and add to the
list – and add a nice sticker to your plug.
As well as this yearly test it is important that you
make a visual check of any electrical appliance
before use. Things like broken or bare wires –
loose leads in plug tops – or damage to the
appliance itself will tell you not to use that
Also if you use any electrical equipment outside
an additional trip switch (RCD) must be used.
They are in the roller cupboard.
If you have any questions or would like any help
to get your electrical equipment here please
give me a call.
Thank you.

Congratulations to Daphne and Emily Jones,
John and Jenny Spatchet and to Rod Chapman
who were awarded their Aldhelm Certificates at
a service at Wilton Church last week
Message from Sheila
Heartfelt thanks to everyone for the support
given over the past twelve months. Your muchneeded prayers, home visits, transport to
hospital, trips out for Gordon, telephone calls,
all very much appreciated.
Bless you all.
East Dorset District Council is proposing to alter
Colehill’s boundary, which, if it goes ahead, will
rip the heart out of the Colehill community.
St. Michael’s Church, the Vicarage,
St. Michael’s School, the Reef, the War
Memorial, Beaucroft School, Colehill Sports &
Social Club, Colehill Cricket Ground & the
Horns Inn will no longer be in Colehill but in
I am starting to collect items for one large and
two smaller hampers. There is a list at the back
of church with ideas for contributions. Please
sign your name against the item you would like
to give,or add your own idea. Please make sure
that items have a “use by/best before” date that
extends into 2015, and place in the box at the
back of church. We shall start selling raffle
tickets on Sundays from mid November, so it
would be helpful to receive items by Sunday 2nd
November if possible.
Any queries contact Liz White 840270.
The proceeds from our lovely lunch and all the
beautiful cake baking amounted to £792 of
which £455 will go to the Christian Aid Sudan
Appeal and £337 to Church Funds. In addition
there was an anonymous donation of £300 for
the Sudan Appeal
Please can members of the congregation save
their glass jars this week for a craft activity I am
hoping to run with the children as part of the
All Age Communion next week –
2nd November. (hopefully this will not compete
with the needs of St Michael's kitchen!). I will
need about 20 - please either leave them at
the back of church during the week or
in the office in the Centre.
Many thanks
It really is important that you tell EDDC that
you OBJECT to these changes. Please email
your comments to

Last year some people asked me about the
white poppy I wore on Remembrance Sunday. I
explained that they were issued by the
Peace Pledge Union as a symbol
of resisting the drive to war. Some people wear
them alongside the red poppy to show respect
for the fallen as well as opposition to war as a
way of trying to solve conflict.
Some of you expressed a wish to wear one
yourselves so I've ordered & bought a lot more
this year! If you would like one contact me on
01202 693837 or [email protected]

Helpers needed for assistance in serving
refreshments on Remembrance Sunday
AFTER the Act of Remembrance at the
War Memorial. It is intended to offer hot
drinks and cakes (cakes supplied and served
by the uniformed organisations in aid of the

Please speak to Daphne or Suzanne if you
can offer help. Thank you.
Carers are people who look after loved ones
with an illness or disability in their own homes.
It can be a very lonely and stressful life,
although carers usually take great pride in their
careful attention to the needs of their loved one.
The Wimborne Carers’ Group is a joint
church/Prama initiative which meets at St
John’s Church, Leigh Road on the third
Friday of each month and offers carers an
opportunity to chat with others in the same
situation, to enjoy coffee and home made cake,
listen to a relevant and uplifting speaker, and
share information. If you think you could help to
run the group by making a cake, or by coming
along to be a listening ear, then please contact
Mary Morris on 01202 883421 or
[email protected] for more information.
NEDRA wishes to express her thanks for
thoughts, prayers & support following the sad
loss of her father in America.
