    December      It seems a long time since I came for interview in June and was offered the post of
       Associate Priest, but we have finally arrived!  Fortunately, the week we moved in
 3rd   GC: Charles Darwin and his famous plants, Caradoc Doy   7.30pm   was dry – the summer has definitely ended since then though, the puppy and I
       have had lots of wet walks since arriving in Dorset.  We are gradually making the
    FG: Christmas Lunch      Vicarage more like our home and feeling settled, what seemed like a huge space
       is  now  getting  smaller  as  we  unpack  and  fill  it  up!    Thank  you  to  all  those  who
 11th  AL: Christmas Afternoon Entertainment and Singing      cleaned and decorated or cleared the garden before we moved in.  Rev Carol
       wrote about teamwork in last month’s letter and there has been lots of evidence
 5th   Pop in Performers Christmas Show      about how well the different teams work throughout the parishes in this benefice.
       All these things take time, so thank you to all involved.
 6th   Pop in Performers Christmas Show      We’ve experienced celebrations of different kinds too.  My licensing service was a
       wonderful  and  memorable  occasion  –  Graham  and  I  were  made  to  feel  very
 7th   Pop in Performers Christmas Show      welcome  and  it  was  a  joyous  start  to  my  ministry  here  among  you.    We  also
       celebrated with Brenda Pitfield as she retired from 30 years of ministry, how lovely
 16th  Pop in Place Community Christmas Party   12.00 -4.00   to be able to say thank you to Brenda for her dedication and service.
