Pilton Players

Any suggestion that this group has died is an exaggeration. It may have been ill for a while, but it has taken its medication and plans to start to

become a phoenix! On Thursday 19th July at 7.30pm there is a meeting at Ashfield, Bakery Lane, Pilton. We will be reading last year’s (postponed) Mummers’ Play to make a start for the Pilton Wassail,scheduled for Saturday 12th January 2019.

We also have two murder mystery play possibilities to read (again thinking of 2019).
You don’t need to be an experienced thespian, just someone who wants to have fun and both entertain and be entertained in the process. EVERYONE is most welcome. Do phone either Maureen (890332) or Chris (890357) if you want to find out more or have a chat about it

Christian Aid

The total raised from the events held and envelopes collected from Pilton, Croscombe, North Wootton and Dinder during this year’sChristian Aid Week amounted to £3146.04.
This was only made possible by the enormous effort of all those people in our villages who organised events and carried out house-to-house collections. A big thank you to everyone and to Tim and Gwen George who held plant sales at all our events and at Collett Park.

We are always looking for volunteers to help during the week, especially a few more people to do house-to-house collections, so if you feel you can help please do let us know.

I will shortly be leaving Pilton after 23 happy years, and so the job of village Poppy Appeal Organiser needs to be filled. The applicant does not need to be a member of The Royal British Legion. I have stocks, for next year, of poppies, collecting boxes etc and could help from my new home in Stoke sub Hamdon. We still have a team of collectors who look after Pilton, North Wootton, Burford and West Compton, and Lloyds Bank helps to count collections.

This is an URGENT REQUEST. Pilton normally collects upwards of £3,000 towards the Somerset County take of £1milliion and a national collectionof£45million.£70million isannuallydistributedfromallBritish Legion sources for Legion Welfare.
