Day Lunch 2014
you like to spend Christmas Day with friends but don’t have
the space at home? Fed up of cooking a turkey for one or two people?
Bought a box of Christmas crackers and will still be using them
in 3 years?
you could have lunch cooked and served to you with no shopping or
washing up to do – for a fraction of the cost of going out
to a restaurant – would you be interested?
we might have the solution for you! Plans are being made to hold
a Bere Regis Village Christmas Day lunch at the Scout Hut but we
need to find out if there is any community interest and an idea
of numbers before we can go ahead. We don’t need to know exact
numbers or get a commitment from you – just putting feelers
out to the local community to find out if we need to book Santa
Claus to visit.

part of the community Bere 14-18 Commemorations, a small team is
researching the lives of the men of our three
local parishes (Bere Regis, Winterborne Kingston & Affpuddle/Turnerspuddle)
who served in the forces in the Great War. Their names are listed
if you click the Picture above. If you think you are a descendent
of any of the men listed and may have some family or service history
or mementoes (Photos, medals, service papers, cuttings, etc ) about
them, could you kindly contact Philip Ventham on 01929 471215 or
would be very pleased to speak with you. Any information, however
insignificant, is of interest as very often, family recollections
can fill gaps in the official records. All contributions will be
acknowledged and mementoes recorded and returned.

"One of my favourite hobbies is making videos for others to
watch and enjoy
I have already produced two DVD's about the places where I have
lived previously and it has given me great pleasure to work on this
one of Bere Regis
The contents include many 'Now & Then' scenes as well as scenes
from different view points in the village
Literally hundreds of villagers are featured within filming as they
attend the various events that have happened throughout the year
From the candle light Carol Service at St John the Baptist Church
to the fantastic achievement of the opening of the brand new play
I am sure that you will find this wonderful window on village life
a pleasure to watch
Bere Regis 'Yesterday Today & Tomorrow' a lasting record of
our vibrant village community to show generations to come"
