Celebrate this Years Centenary


To mark the centenary of the end of the 1st World War it is planned to create a display of red poppies in the Parish Church and everyone is asked if they could make at least one red poppy to go towards this display. Poppies can be made in any medium, in card, tissue, paper, crochet, knitted, sewn or whatever you choose. There is a box in the church to put your poppies in and there are other boxes around the village. The poppies will be collected up to start putting the display together on Sunday 21st October.

Poppy drop boxes can be found at the Library, Staplehurst Free Church, All Saints’ Church, Scout centre, Kathie Lamb guide Centre and the porch of number 4 Thatcher Road.

All poppies to be received by October 21st when work will begin to bring them together in a display.

Every poppy will be used,

We look forward to receiving yours!

Bell Ringing Recruitment

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 to the tower and see what goes on or join us in the Kings Head from 21:15.  We’re normally the big table of people, don’t be afraid of coming and having a chat!

If you would like any more information, please contact – Sue Bassett – Tower Captain

Carers and Vulnerable Adults

Just to remind you that, in the right hand side of the church (by the charity notice board) is a basket containing useful information. Please take any you may find helpful.

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.

There are leaflets for those people who feel anxious or vulnerable, or suffering physical or mental abuse, with telephone numbers for people or organisations who can help you. Please do look at them and use them.
