From Charles Waldron on 16th December 2019:

Subject: Church Christmas Tree Festival

The St Paul's Church Christmas Tree festival was a success again this year with eight local organisations competing for the title of Best Decorated Tree. Visitors to the church over the three days 13th-15th December were able to vote for their favourite tree and the standard was very high! These are the entrants with the voting results for the top three:

  • Landkey Horticultural Society - first place with 24 votes
  • Landkey Brownies - second place with 20 votes
  • Millennium Green Trust - third place with 10 votes
  • Swimbridge Nursing Home
  • Landkey Women's Institute
  • Landkey Village Hall
  • Landkey Parish Council & Toddler Group
  • Landkey United Fellowship

We congratulate the winners but also extend our thanks to all who decorated trees as their work was much appreciated and will provide a festive attraction in the church until the New Year. Although the competition has now closed, all are welcome to come along and view the trees.

Thank you, also, to Bett Parker for playing seasonal tunes on her keyboard on Saturday afternoon.

From Charles Waldron on 13th November 2019:

Subject: Remembrance

Residents of Landkey turned out in large numbers for Remembrance Sunday, 10th November 2019.

The service took place at 10:00 am in Landkey village hall and was led by Chris James. In his sermon, Chris reminded the gathered church members and village residents of the awful losses of human life during the D-Day landings. He drew inspiration from the work of West Country poet, David Prowse whose poem, "Normandy", evoking the emotions of that time, was especially poignant.

The 40 or so people who met in the village hall were joined by many more at the war memorial, swelling numbers to as many as 100 to observe the Act of Remembrance. Wreaths were laid by Bill Parker on behalf of Landkey Parish Council and by Tom Wilks on behalf of St Paul's Church.

This year, the war memorial was draped with a garland of 365 knitted poppies, one for each day since the last Remembrance Day. The industrious knitters were revealed to be Karen Trigger, Sue Ackland, Anita Thorne and Liz Davis. Their work received a round of applause!

From Charles Waldron on 6th October 2019:

Subject: Remembrance Service

We will be holding a service of Remembrance at 10:00 am in Landkey village hall on 10th November to recall the sacrifice paid by our armed forces in defending our nation.

The service will be followed by the Act of Remembrance at the war memorial, including two minutes' silence at 11:00 am. All are welcome to attend.

From Charles Waldron on 27th July 2019:

Subject: Landkey Show - an enjoyable occasion

It was good to find the Landkey Show well supported when the day of its annual opening to the residents of the village arrived on 27th July 2019.

Opened by Chair of Landkey Parish Council, Richard Halliday, at 2pm, it included many attractions for visitors. Foremost among these was the ever-popular Dog Agility display which featured dogs negotiating a range of challenges including ramps, pipes, jumps and slalom poles.

The Millennium Green Trust stall offered lanyards for dog walkers, postcards and a treasure map while, nearby, a tent offering thoughtfully arranged second-hand books attracted a great deal of interest.

Volunteers in the school's canteen were kept busy making cream teas for visitors who could inspect the entries to the flower, fruit and vegetable competitions while they were there.

Outside, a colourful display of vintage tractors, including Nuffields, Massey Fergusons and Internationals, provided a talking point for many people.

The weather proved ideal, being sunny and warm but not too hot, enabling the many other attractions, including ice creams, burgers and music to be enjoyed.  

From Charles Waldron on 3rd July 2019:

Subject: Garden Party - an enjoyable occasion!

The Garden Party held at The Old Manor, Landkey, on 29th June 2019 was a very enjoyable occasion. The weather was perfect - warm, dry and not too hot and this encouraged maybe as many as 120 visitors to come along and take part in the many attractions and to purchase tea-and-scones, drinks or hot dogs.

"Soak the Vicar" proved very popular, with people, especially children, queuing to throw wet sponges at a man acting as a vicar (Revd Shaun could not attend, unfortunately).

Over £1000 was raised for church funds and we express our thanks to all who came along and supported us as well as to all who helped, not forgetting Mike and Josie Foster whose garden was put at our disposal for the afternoon!
