By the time this Chimes comes out the Community room will be back to its normal use. I will then put a box for donation of items for the Fete. Please put anything you think we will be able to use for the bric-a-brac stall or bottlebola in there. If the items are too large please let me know and I will arrange for them to be collected. We have had some offers of help on the day but still need more especially on the bric-a-brac stall.

Green Pond Halstock
It was brought to our attention a couple of months ago that the Green Pond in Halstock was in need of some maintenance, some initial clearing has now been undertaken. The Parish Council is looking at officially adopting/registering the area so that we can work to make this a community area for all to enjoy. Please can you let me know if there is any reason you know of why this would not be possible. We have spoken to Dorset Council Highways and looked at the surrounding land registry plans as well as speaking to the previous owners of Green Pond Cottage the Taylors (Betty Harris's Family) and can find no evidence of ownership. Please contact the Clerk (Tessa Safadi) on 01935 891068 or email email@example.com

Betty Harris died on October 10 2021.
Her funeral will be held at Higher Meadow Burial Ground at 2.30pm, Wednesday 03 November. No flowers please, Betty requested that trees be planted instead.
Village Fete 2022
The last Fete was held in 2019 and it is planned to have a Fete again in 2022. The committee that organised the 2019 Fete feel it is time to introduce a lot of new blood into the committee as several members want to have a well-earned rest and, speaking for myself, feel that age is now limiting what they can do. I know that there are several people that have shown an interest in getting involved and so we are going to have a meeting on Monday 22nd November in the village hall to at 7pm. All the present committee are willing to work with new people to pass on their knowledge of the previous years and some members who are happy to continue doing some of the work they have done in the past. As an added attraction we plan to put the skittle alley out so that once the meeting is over we can have a game of skittles.

– PLEA FOR POSTAGE STAMPS
Corscombe collect used postage stamps and I have been asked if we could also collect them. The used stamps are sold in bulk to Stamp dealers. The rules are that they are sold by weight regardless of original value or country of origin. The dealers will accept up to a quarter inch / 5-6mm surround of paper, so for best value cut the stamps off the envelopes leaving that much margin of paper. So do not soak off (lost value) & leaving more is not productive as someone here or at the Hospice will need to trim the surplus or risk the dealers noticing & rejecting that entire batch of stamps. There is a receptacle in the Community Room for them.
