Edgeworth, Miserden, Syde and Winstone.
Message from The Archdeacon.
‘Like me, I know you will be sorry to have heard that your Rector, Val, and her
husband Stuart are in the process of seeking a divorce. They both need the
assurance of our love and prayers at this difficult time.
Bishop Martyn and I continue to have full confidence in, and to be fully
supportive of, Val’s ministry in this benefice: one that continues to be exercised
with great skill and ability.
We ask you to give her the space and privacy she needs to resolve what are
personal matters over the next few months, while continuing to surround her
with your prayers and support as she continues her ministry as your Rector.’

Lest We Forget
When the fighting of the First World War finally ceased, many people wanted to
find a way of honouring the thousands who had died – as well as providing for
those soldiers who had been left injured from the conflict.
Three years after the guns went silent, in 1921, the British Legion was formed.
The organisation adopted the poppy as its symbol of hope and remembrance,
wearing one on their lapels as they turned their thoughts to those who had
fought in the conflict.
The problems facing First World War veterans when they returned to the UK
continue to affect serving personnel and veterans today: whether living with
bereavement or disability, finding employment, or coping with financial stress.
The Royal British Legion, which was awarded the Royal title in 1971, continues
to work to improve their lives.
Today, more than 45 million poppies are distributed each year with 95 percent
of people taking part in Remembrance events. This year it has set a national
fundraising target of £42 million towards helping men and women of the
military.
To find out more about the work of the Royal British Legion and how you can
support it, visit www.britishlegion.org.uk/

The Archdeacon of Cheltenham, the Venerable Robert
Springett, reflects on the First World War
In August our Cathedral gave a whole day to readings the names,
from war memorials across the county, of all those killed in the
Great War. It was deeply moving, a reminder of how that war
affected almost every family and community.
Its deepest power was though simply in the reading of names. Names are so
precious, the way in which we are known to each other as father, son, daughter,
husband, partner, lover and of course they are the way in which we are known
to God, whom the psalmist says formed each one of us in our mother’s womb,
who call us, who holds us as beloved.
As the names of those killed in the Great War recede into the carved stone of our
memorials it would be easy to forget. In this centenary year let us remember
them, the humanity, the vulnerability, the uniqueness of each person, and those
who loved and mourned them.
In our world today where still innocent victims of every race and creed lose
their lives in war and conflict, it is in this remembering that we discover anew
our common humanity, our hope for peace and commit ourselves to a better
future, for which they laid down their lives that we may have a new heart and
a new spirit.
First World War resources
Churches across the Diocese will be marking events during the next four years
as the country looks back to the conflict that ravaged Europe 100 years ago.
Prayers, music, literature and art are available the Church of England as part of a
pack of resources commemorating the centenary of the First World War.
The pack includes:
• A selection of suitable readings from the Bible
• Appropriate hymns, songs, music, literature and art
• A selection of different kinds of prayer (including a Litany of remembrance)
• An outline for a service around a War Memorial
Further material will be made available throughout the years of commemoration
up to 2018.
If you want to make use of these resources, you can download the resources
by going to the Church of England's website www.churchofengland.org and
clicking on the 'World War One' box.
Alternatively, you can go directly to www.churchofengland.org/prayer-worship/

BIRDLIP & BRIMPSFIELD W. I.
The September meting was held on the 17th September at Brimpsfield Village
Hall. We were pleased to welcome a visitor for the evening.
Once again The members were reminded about the Pudding Evening on the
22nd October at Brimpsfield Village Hall. Everyone is participating and an
eclectic mix of puddings to enjoy have been promised.
Since the August meeting Members had enjoyed a Fish & Chips cruise at
Tewkesbury, a visit to Weston and Hereford Cathedral for the Festival of
Flowers. The walking group explored the ups and downs of Eastcombe and
the Toadsmore valley on a beautiful summers day. An extra walk to celebrate
28 years of walking was held on 30th September following the river around
Malmesbury starting with coffee in the Abbey Church. The proposed film at
Tewkesbury this month is “Jersey Boys”.
A talk on “Acupuncture Chronic Pain and Headaches” was given by Mr Adrian
Lyster. He explained how Acupucture is now common place as a treatment
within the Health Service where once it was regarded with sceptism. He then
invited questions from the floor and there was no shortage of people to seek
advice on a particular problem! All were treated with humour and pertinent
advice.
At the meeting on October 15th at Birdlip Village Hall at 7:15pm we welcomed
some employees from Waitrose who educated us on different Wines and
Cheese; it was an evening to savour.
Novembers meeting is on 19th in Brimpsfield Village Hall at 07:15pm.

A THANKSGIVING FOR THE HARVEST
On Sunday the 5th October the village held a service of thanksgiving for the
harvest, followed by a lunch in the village hall. The church looked beautiful,
with every corner filled with flowers. Everyone contributed to the service with
special thanks to Hal who read one of the lessons and Clara and her mother
who helped with the prayers. The collection was in aid of the Addington Fund,
which offers help and support to farmers in distress. The mountain of dried
foods were later very gratefully received by the food bank in Cirencester.
Thanks to all those who so generously donated. Thanks also to Wendy and her
team for coordinating and arranging such a delicious lunch afterwards. A real
celebration of thanks and praise for all that God provides.

a chocolate nature, which can be a big draw for some?! Do come, you would
be more than welcome!

DUNTISBOURNE ABBOTS W.I.
With business over at our September Meeting, Angela Panrucker entertained
us with her Gloucestershire Slide Quiz. She showed us 30 beautiful slides that
she had taken herself and tested our knowledge of the county that some of us
have always lived in. It was surprising how much there is to learn – for instance
where is the window depicting Thomas the Tank Engine? (Rodborough Church),
how long is the Cotswold Way (106 miles) and what and where is Hetty Peglars
Tump (homework!)?
By the time this is read, D.A.W.I. will have enjoyed their light hearted Fashion
Show in October and will be looking forward to the Wine and Cheese AGM in
November.
More excitedly though, we will be looking forward to our 90th Birthday Party
in December.
We will be having this in the Village Hall for members and specially invited
guests. It is amazing to think that our W.I. was started in the 1920s – what fun
it would be to be able to travel back in time to that first meeting!

Miserden is retuning to normal after the filming of Cider with Rosie has
completed. We've lost The Woolpack and regained The Carpenters Arms.
One of the producers of the show kindly came into school one day and spoke to
the children about the filming process. The children asked many thoughtful and
inquisitive questions of him.
In November the children will be performing in Gloucester Cathedral as part of
the Gloucester Cathedral Young Voices Project, this is a fantastic opportunity for
the children to take part in an exciting event and showcase the wonderful voice
they have as they sing in unison! They have also been asked to take part in the
Cheltenham Oratorio Project, for which they have composed their own song.
Preparations for the school Harvest Festival Service are under way to be held
on Friday 24th October at 9.30am at St Andrew's Church. All members of the
community are welcome to this service and, following the service, to come back
to the school for coffee and a community cake sale. This sale is to raise funds for
a charity that has become close to the heart of the school community: Cancer
Research. The school is also collecting food donations for the Stroud Food Bank.
The children of Miserden C of E Primary School have worked together and
undertaken to sponsor the education of a Kenyan schoolboy called Senchura.

The children have raised the money themselves by holding cake sales and other
fundraising events.
Miserden bonfire night is on Sunday 2nd November, gates open at 5pm with
fireworks at 6pm. Tickets cost £4.50 for adults and £2 for children. The fireworks
are provided by professional pyrotechnic company Skyburst!
On Sunday 16th November there will be a Christmas Market in Miserden. Please
come along for all your Christmas shopping. It may seem a long time off, but at
the point of writing this, it's only 10 weeks away!

BENEFICE BARN DANCE, 2014
Well, if you weren’t there you missed a treat. About thirty of us had a terrific
time !
The multi-talented band, “Oddpiece”, were absolutely first class, giving a
beautiful lilt to the tunes, and Alex, their singer, has a lovely voice. Derek, the
“caller” was absolutely top rate, guiding us every step of the way, and remaining
most patient when we went wrong (which was often).
As for the dancing, one or two people had some idea of how each dance was
supposed to go, but most didn’t, and fewer worried about it. We dosey-doe’d,
and promenaded, and twirled, and “balanced”, and circled left, and circled right,
and danced to the middle and back, and advanced, and bumped into people,
and forgot the pattern, and lost our partners and found them again, and missed
our next couples, but nobody minded. Not taking it too seriously was the one
essential requirement, and that’s just what we all did. It was hilarious, and
wonderful.
As ever at these events, there was more ”bring and share” food than we could
all eat, and it was widely varied, tasty and well prepared. It gave opportunity to
chat to others, to meet old friends, and make new ones.
Thanks to Val and others who organised this terrific event. Huge thanks to Penny
and Andrew for letting us enjoy not only the music, dancing, and friendship,
but also the inspiring architecture and quality of their barn renovation, which
always takes my breath away.
And if you did miss it this year, put a note in your diary for next year (around
the same time). You really should not miss it again !

[email protected] – “Celtic Praise”
By the time you read this The Celtic Praise style service will have already been
held, for the Harvest Festival at Winstone (on Sunday 19th October). This follows
the first outing of the Celtic team at the Barn Dance service on October 12th –
members of the congregation were very complimentary about the contribution
the style of music had in offering our praise. Now we’re looking forward to the
coming services, which are planned for Saturdays @Six.
Actually, there was one mistake in last month’s magazine (my fault - apologies),
as the correct November date is Saturday the 15th, so (to reinforce that)
Saturday, 15th November at 6pm, at Winstone church is the place to be.
As there’s quite a bit going on in December (!), we’re skipping that one, so the
next is (as in last month’s magazine) Saturday, 17th January. However, there is
a bit of an issue with the February and March dates, as the “3rd Saturday” is
actually the day before the “4th Sunday”, so it would mean two services, close
together on the same weekend. We will finalise the dates for these in good
time to let you know, so watch this space !
The purpose of these services is to offer another way to praise our Lord, and to
open the church not only to frequent church attenders, but also to those who
don’t feel comfortable with what they may think of as the “standard” church
service. It’s open to the whole benefice (and beyond). We hope to see you
there.

BELLE (12A)
Gugu Mbatha - Raw, Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson
The film is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle the illegitimate
mixed race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay. Raised by her aristocratic
great uncle Lord Mansfield, Belle's lineage affords her certain privileges, yet her
status prevents her from the traditions of noble social standing. After meeting
an idealistic young vicar’s son bent on changing society, he and Belle help shape
Lord Mansfield's role, as Lord Chief Justice, in ending slavery in England.

Alexander Technique Teacher MSTAT
Learning to use the Alexander Technique can improve your breathing,
clarity of thought, and your ability to handle life’s stresses, so that you can
be more relaxed, confident and maintain your health.
You gain an understanding of the body's fundamental design, and a way
to move that can help you feel better, on your own. You become more
attuned to your body's warning signs of tension and compression, giving
you a chance to change your habits that cause unnecessary tightness. An
improvement in poise and general vitality is a bonus! For all ages and
outlooks.
