Salisbury Hospice Charity’s Christmas Tree Collection Campaign is back for 2021
Love having a real tree at Christmas but hate the New Year clean up? Salisbury Hospice Charity have the answer. Following the huge success of last year’s initiative during which approximately 1000 trees were collected and recycled, raising almost £13,000 of vital funds for the hospice, together with £1,067 for local charity Love for Louis, we are once again running the scheme in conjunction with the charity Just Helping. This year we are hoping the initiative will again be well supported, as so many of our key events have been cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions. We will also make a donation of 10% (after costs) to the local charity Charlie’s Star which provides breaks in Cornwall for bereaved parents of children under 19. The collection also helps the environment as all of the trees are chipped and recycled as animal bedding, or composted. 2021 will be our 40th year of providing palliative care in Salisbury and the surrounding areas; we have many events planned to celebrate this throughout 2021, so look out for these. Click the poster beside this announcement for details of how to have your tree collected and recycled after the festive season, or call 01722 416353, by 4th January 2021.

But you can still join us on Zoom @ 5pm on Sunday 29 November and light a Candle of Hope or your own home-made Christingle in support of The Children’s Society. For the Zoom log-in details and how you can support this worthwhile cause please e-mail Rev. Veronica Batchelor on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01725 513878.

Remembrance Day and Poppy Appeal 2020
This year Remembrance Day was held on Sunday the November 8th. Unfortunately in these difficult times it was a very different event. The usual parade did not take place this year. Instead, a small group combined of members of the Royal British Legion and the Parish Council held a shortened remembrance service at Quavey and Bowers Hill memorials. The village shop, Hale Newsagents, was the only local collecting point but you can still donate online: please click the Royal British Legion logo next to this announcement.
