Dear All,

St John the Baptist

There will be a service of Holy Communion this Sunday at 11.15am taken by the Revd Poppy Hughes. All welcome.

Message from Caroline Baker:


The Trustees of the Elizabeth Hodges Trust will be holding its next meeting on Tuesday 28th February 2023.  Anyone who would like to be considered for a grant to help towards promoting education should apply in writing.  All grants to assist with further studies either at University or on an apprenticeship, are looked at individually and are considered on the educational merit.  The Deed specifies that the income of the Foundation shall be used in promoting education (including social and physical education) to persons under the age of 25 who live, or whose parents live, within the following parishes: Shipton Moyne, Long Newnton, Westonbirt and Lasborough, Didmarton, Ashley and Tetbury Upton, and require financial assistance.  Therefore, you do not need to be going to University to apply, we will also consider apprenticeships, educational trips and equipment purchases, etc for the furtherance of education (including the study of music and other arts)

Anyone who wishes to be considered for a grant should write to the Clerk to the Trustees:-

Mrs. H. Turner, Holly Cottage, The Street, Didmarton, Badminton, Glos GL9 1DS


The Trustees do ask that you give us as much information as possible about the course or apprenticeship you will be studying or working towards, where you will be studying and how the grant monies will be utilised.

Any more news let me know,
