Friends of All Saints Shepherds’ Market
The Friends of All Saints’ Shepherds’ Market on Saturday the 3rd of December in Church was a great event.
We have raised around £1000 for our funds supporting All Saints looking after the fabric of the building.
Thank you to all those people that helped in the organisation and running of this event and to all those people from the village that came along and looked around and enjoyed a helping of Shepherds Pie, purchased Christmas gifts, brought raffle tickets and met Father Christmas.
We would like to thank all the local traders that donated raffle prizes or services.

All Saints’ Staplehurst – Organ Restoration Fund
Current fund-raising total as of 10th October 2016 is £7744
Sponsor or clean a pipe – there are 950 of them!!
All Saints’ Church is having the organ restored and cleaned in September at a total cost of £19,152.00. The Friends of All Saints have pledged 50%, which means we need to raise £9,576.00.
If you would like to sponsor a pipe, or contribute towards cleaning a pipe, please take a look at our Organ Restoration page.
At All Saints’ Church Staplehurst, we have a successful band of ringers and are always on the lookout for new recruits to keep this tradition going.
Bells don’t automatically ring for services and weddings, it takes a team of people ringing together to achieve the sound that we’re all used to.
Ringing is open to all ages from about 10 upwards, and is a great thing to do with the whole family. There is no obligation to attend services.
Our regular practice is from 19.00 to 21.15 every Tuesday evening. Anyone is welcome to come up and see what goes on. We can also be found in the Kings Head from 21.15 to late. We’re normally the big table of people, don’t be afraid of coming and having a chat!

Eliana’s Wish to Run
Eliana Farragher and her family will be travelling to St Louis, Missouri for Eliana’s spinal surgery on the 22nd of November. With the amazing support and generosity of our community over £54k has been raised. The fundraising continues to support the extensive physiotherapy required to grant her wish to run. Ray is undertaking a 30 mile walk, with willing volunteers, along the Thames in September and Cath is organising a Charity Ball. If you would like to support these events please keep updated on www.elianaswishtorun.co.uk.
Thank you all for your continued and unwavering support.
Many Thanks, Silke.

There are identification forms to be filled in, should a confused person go missing. The Police and Kent Search and Rescue find these forms very helpful at what is a stressful time for relatives and carers.
