The Organ at St George's Church, Fovant

 

At last!    The work on the organ will soon begin after such a long wait, during which it has enjoyed making some very peculiar noises and occasionally having a mind of its own.       We think there has only been one overhaul in all the 98 years it has been working so it will be great not to have organists politely indicating that we should be doing something about it!        Although many people and organisations have been very generous and we are enormously grateful,   we shall still have to make up the final part of the funds needed from savings, so if anyone feels they would like to contribute “PCC Fovant” would welcome a contribution.  Account No: 02981591, sort code 30-97-41, reference  Organ Fund.

 

There is something pretty special about the sound of a good organ in a Church so let us look forward to that special day when all is back together again without the dust and bat droppings!

Message from the Fovant Parish Council

Wessex water will be continuing their drain survey on the A30 so there maybe three way traffic lights at junction Monday 13th & Tuesday 14th May.


THANK YOU for your patience.  The WW Team have already found some significant issues which will benefit the whole village once they are rectified.

Dogs, Dogwalkers & Gamebirds

 

Many of you will have noticed the young game birds on some of the footpaths you regularly walk, and whilst most dog owners are very good at keeping their canine companions under control, there is a natural instinct in many to chase,  catch and sadly kill. This is not good for your dog or the gamekeeper, Steve. Please can walkers keep to the footpaths (Walking route 6A in the Local Walks booklet HERE) and keep your dogs under control, thank you.

Bonfire

Bonfires

Whilst we are all aware of our rural setting and that bonfires are part of country life, respiratory illness in all generations is a growing trend, with bonfires causing exacerbation in diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructed airways.
 

Please could we ask that if you’re considering having a bonfire, you resist lighting it until after dusk when most residents will have closed windows and doors.
 

Your kind cooperation would be gratefully appreciated.
