South Moreton Church work party – Saturday 1st November 10 am – 12 noon

We would love your help at on Saturday 1st November.  Please do come and help do jobs in the church and churchyard, and enjoy meeting others at the same time. There’s plenty to be done – taking ivy off walls, clearing drains and hoppers, indoor cleaning, taking flaky stuff off walls, getting windows to open, and more stuff we’ll think of before Nov 1st.

Bring secateurs, trowels, dusters, Jey cloths. Come for as short or long as you can manage. We’ll be very grateful for your help!

Please contact the school office on 01235 813110 or office.2566@south-moreton.oxon.sch.uk and let them know, so we have an idea of numbers.

Make the most of an extra garden waste collection

Harsher weather is coming and residents might want to get one last bit of gardening in before winter really takes hold.
Good news – South Oxfordshire District Council is offering existing garden waste customers an extra large brown bin collection during the week of 27 October.  So, if they have got extra branches and brambles that simply won’t fit in their brown bin, garden waste customers can put out one extra bins’ worth of garden waste in sacks or reusable bags on their usual collection day – they just need to make sure they’re open so the crew can see what’s in there.

South Moreton Harvest Festival – Sunday 12th October

The South Moreton Harvest Festival Service will take place next Sunday (12th October) at 10.30 am.

Harvest gifts are more than welcome.  These can either be fruit of vegetables presented in a basket / box or alternatively non perishable food (at least six months before use by date).  Perishables will be auctioned, with any money raised to be given to the food bank along with the non perishables.

There will something for all ages (especially the children) with refreshments afterwards so do please come along as we would love to see as many of you as possible.

Hope to see you then and thank you so much to all those who came along and supported the Safari Supper last weekend.
