Flower Festival
From the Flower Festival Committee:
A huge ‘thank-you’ once again to everyone who helped us with this years flower festival.
The result of our efforts  means  we are able to contribute £1,000.00 to the Church funds.
A substantial amount considering it was so HOT!!!
We are planning to meet again in March 2023—the flower festival dates for next year are July 15th and 16th.
Once again our grateful  thanks.

In Jolly Good Company

Dear Friends
Where other than Jolly St Giles can you experience such a Jolly eclectic mix of cultures all in one day? Last Jolly Day we started with a Greek inspired lunch and cookery demonstration, followed by music from the very talented Daisy, she is an Edmonsham based 14 year old singer songwriter. Moving on with karaoke and bagpipes to follow – all washed down with tea and delicious cakes made in the village.  I admit, last Monday was a busy day, so sometimes we take things easy and plan a more mellow afternoon, which we are looking forward to next time with the return of some of our favourite musicians ‘Bit Of A Tonic’.  They will play for us after another delicious Friendly Food Club Lunch.
Please get in touch if you or someone you know would like to come along.  We are open to all and accept voluntary donations on the door of an amount of your choosing. In September we are very much looking forward to being reunited with our friends from Wimborne St Giles First School.

Date for your diary – 2nd October marks the date of our fundraising Jolly Tea at the hall from 3 – 5pm.
Best wishes to all

St Giles House

St Giles House will be hosting the UK Trail Running Festival on 16th October 2022. A blend of trail running, camping and live music! Various distances will be available, from a 200m run for little ones, to a full marathon. Challenge yourself to run a new distance, or simply enjoy the scenery with a woodland walk.
Tickets and more information can be found at:
  WSG Defibrillator  Word has gone out on the Facebook WSG Residents group that the defibrillator located in the telephone box in the village hall is not in working order. I would like to assure everyone that this was incorrect. The unit requires the pads to be replaced every two years, even if they have not been used and it was simply highlighting that it was time for the pads to be replaced and was still fully operational. New pads have been installed and paid for thanks to the Knowlton Parish Community Fund that has agreed to cover the on-going costs of this unit. Kevin

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Hi Everyone,
Steve and I are going to hold a Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 30th September between 11-3pm at home, 4 The Terrace, Wimborne St Giles. We did it back in 2019 and raised a massive £500 so we thought we’d give it another go. It would be great to see everyone so do feel free to pop in some time during the day.

If anyone would like to contribute to the table, could you let me know either by phone or email please as I don’t want to duplicate. Anything you would like to donate will be gratefully received as I’m certainly no expert baker but more than happy to do my bit.
We will be making some savoury bits too so you won’t have to just eat cake!!
Look forward to seeing you. 😊
Many thanks Lissie.
Kind regards
A Higgs
