REPAIRS TO ST. CLEMENT’S CHURCH
The church building will be closed for repairs as from the beginning of September 2019.
This is because we now have permission to carry out repairs to the church floor, renovations to the spirelet and WC, the installation of a small kitchen and repositioning of the stone font.
We are very excited at the prospect of how the newly refurbished church building will serve the community—it will be a long wait but as the saying goes “Good things are worth waiting for”!
Work will take approximately 6 months. Please pray for this project, that all things go smoothly.
Please contact the church office if you have any queries or concerns about this project. 01202 733390 (mornings). Thank you

On 13th July we reviewed and discussed some of the significant events that had happened throughout history on that date. We started as far back as 100 BC with the birth of Julius Caesar - and it was discovered that one of our members shares his birthday with the Roman leader! Other notable events included the perfecting of bottled beer by the Dean of St. Paul’s, London in 1568 and Queen Victoria moving into Buckingham Palace in 1837. As we progressed into the 20th Century the 1918 birth of the Italian racing driver Alberto Ascari, world champion in 1952, evoked members’ memories of motor racing at Goodwood, Thruxton and Blandford Army Camp.
On 10th August we joined the working party for the “The Big Snip” manicure of the churchyard - a great event!
Our next meeting will be on Saturday, 14th September in the Church Hall at 10.00 a.m.
