From the Vicarage
At the beginning of term I attended a staff training session at Blandford St Mary School on
addressing the spiritual needs of pupils across the whole curriculum. Whilst it was aimed
primarily at pupils in years 1 to 6 as I reflected on the content I came to realise that there
would be a value in spreading it more widely across the readership of the Bridge and Three
Villages Magazines; as Albert Einstein is supposed to have said: �the day you stop learning is
the day you die’. And so with acknowledgement to the Salisbury Diocesan board of
Education I would like to share the main threads of the presentation with you.
Spirituality is always quite hard to define. Normally it starts with those Big Questions (e.g.
What is life/death? What is love? What is good?) and when pressed people tend to use the
language and imagery of their own faith position:
Either the development of a relationship with god/s
the development of the human spirit
a continual quest after truth
After all, no faith position can be can be proved beyond all reasonable doubt using our human
senses and reason and so to claim to know all the answers to the Big Questions, whether for
example as a 6 day creationist or as an absolute atheist, is a fundamentalism built on a
misunderstanding of the nature and need of human spiritual questing. At its heart there are
no answers available to us (in this lifetime at any rate) and so we must all travel in hope and
trust and not in certainty. That way lies tyranny and oppression most clearly seen in the
barbaric actions of ISIS.
An image that is used in schools to illustrate the nature of human existence is the doughnut,
which has two parts: the tangible ring and the hole in the middle, no doughnut is complete
without both parts. The outer ring represents the physical person and the hole represents
the spirit/soul/heart. In this model Spiritual Development is about paying attention to the
�hole’ in order to become �whole’. This involves intentional attention being paid to:
п‚· the beliefs, religious or otherwise, which inform our perspective on life and our
interest in and respect for different people’s feelings and values,
п‚· a sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about ourselves, others and the world
around us, including the intangible,
п‚· the use of imagination and creativity (including stories e.g. the bible, myths etc.),
п‚· a willingness to reflect on their experiences.
Taking this analysis further the areas of special interest that need attention are:
Self ,
Others ,
Beauty ,
Spiritual Development requires an intentional (deliberately focused) frame of mind; we must
take time out to pay attention to that mysterious hole in the centre of the doughnut that is at
the heart of each and every one of us. The training day gave a set of helpful images to focus
our thinking.
To be aware of those opportunities to reflect, to look inward to
consider some of the big questions of life: to think about those
activities that enrich our lives most deeply.
To look for opportunities to respond the needs of others, to do
something about it; to develop empathy; to walk a mile in
another’s shoes.
Windows: To be open to the possibility of a sense of awe with the beauty,
richness and variety of creation, on the very smallest and on the
very largest of scales; to keep that childlike sense of wonder and
joy when simply looking.
Candles: To take time out to reflect on the incomprehensibility of life:
where did life come from and where is it going? What is love?
those moments when we are drawn to a sense of the
inexplicableness of life; those big questions; a sense that the here
and now, the tangible might not provide the answers to all our
As we all go through life we should all try to be more intentional on looking out on those
moments/experiences that might off up a mirror-door-window-candle opportunity. None of
s should ever think that we are beyond learning and we can all learn from children, for as
Jesus said:
“unless you change and become like little children, you will
never enter the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 18:3
London to Paris in 24 hours and 1
A very big thank you for from Joe for all the support both
moral and financial that he received for his bike ride to
Paris at the beginning of September. I completed the ride
of 280 miles in a total time of 24 hours and 1 minute.
Despite flying through Paris as tho' on the Tour de France,
clocking 30 mph on the Champs Elysees, I couldn't quite
get under the 24 hour mark. The daylight weather was
just about ideal: bright but not too hot and almost
windless; however, the night was pretty grim as northern France was covered by
a thick (5 metre) fog which was damp and dispiriting to ride through. Arrival
under the Eiffel Tower was a pretty special moment. To know I had the support
of so many was a huge source of encouragement as I ground out the miles
across northern France in the cold, damp cotton wool like mist of the night and
early morning.
Thank you one and all and, if I can be hardnosed, my just giving page is still open:

Pamphill Green
BH21 4EE
A new year is once again underway at Pamphill School following the summer
vacation, which seems a very long time ago now!
Schools are currently facing a great deal of change this academic year: an
updated National Curriculum, free school meals to infant children, funding
issues and an ever present pressure to become academies.
The issue of school meals and the problems caused by the supplier Chartwell - has been well documented in the local media and our experience is
no different from other schools. It has caused no end of frustration, not to
mention extra work for a large majority of school staff who have “mucked in”
to ease the problems caused by the supplier’s deficiencies.
There has been much work done at Pamphill since before the summer, most
of it remedial to give a little TLC to our wonderful 318 year old building.
Unfortunately at the time of writing we still have work continuing to make
the roof watertight, but the effort throughout has been well worth it and
the school looks really fresh and ready for the new term.
Schools throughout the country will continue to operate to the best of their
ability despite a continuing stream of change being imposed upon them. At
Pamphill we have a simple philosophy which gives focus to what we do during
these fluid times - the children come first – with this in mind we continue to
provide the best for the children in our care and will continue to do so.

Lt. Walter Evelyn Parke, 1891 – 1914.
Evelyn (as he was known, (although he also acquired the nickname “Bob”) was
the second son of Lt. Col. Lawrence Parke and his wife Eveline Jane. Lawrence
was one of the sons of Charles Joseph Parke of Henbury, and Evelyn ’s mother
was from the Lees family of South Lytchett House.
Evelyn was born at Henbury on 27th. July 1891. Along with his younger brother
John Aubrey (“Pip”), he attended Durnford School at Langton Matravers, and
then Winchester College where he represented the College at cricket in the
years 1907, 1908 & 1909 as a left-handed batsman. On leaving Winchester he
went to Sandhurst (which he represented in Cricket and Racquets) for 2 years,
and then in 1911 joined the 2nd Bn., Durham Light Infantry in the rank of 2nd.
Lieutenant. In 1913 he represented both Dorset and the army on the cricket
field and the following year he was promoted to full Lieutenant.
On September 8th 1914 he set off for France with his Regiment, reaching the
Western Front a week later. The Regiment took part in the battle of the Aisne,
and by October 12th they were at Hazebrouck. The following day they marched
to Vieux Berquin where Evelyn was shot dead by a sniper. Buried by Sgt. Major
J. Watson where he fell, his remains were subsequently moved and re-interred
at Outtersteene Communal Cemetery Extension near Bailleul. (In France a
“Communal Cemetery” is the civil cemetery for the local “Commune” or
community. The Extension is a C.W.G.C. Cemetery.) I had the privilege of
visiting the grave a few years ago with my wife, and it is a haven of peace and
calm, and a fitting memorial to our fallen.
Evelyn was the first of no less than 53 Durnford “old boys” to fall in the Great
War, and his sacrifice is recorded in St. George’s Church, near Durnford, St.
Andrew’s Church Kinson, St. Nicholas’ Church Moreton (on two memorials)
as well as St. Mary’s Sturminster Marshall.
October 2014 marks the centenary of his death, so it feels appropriate to record
his sacrifice and that of countless others from Dorset and elsewhere who died
for freedom.
“We will remember them.”
Bob Parke.

An extraordinary meeting of the Memorial Hall was held last
Thursday. A new Chair and Secretary is required. If no one comes
forward the hall will have to close. It needs support. The hall is a
vital village asset surely this cannot be allowed to happen. A
questionnaire is being prepared and will shortly be put through your
letterbox. Please answer the questions whatever your views
and return it to the Hall.
We have been seeking a replacement Dog Bin for Millmoor but are unable to acquire
one at present. The Dorset Waste Partnership have informed us that they are reviewing
their bin design. We believe in future all waste will go in one type of bin and that there
will not be a separate bin for dog waste.
Last but by no means least we have a new Parish Clerk, her name is Mrs Val Curtis and
you will find her contact details in the back of this magazine.

A Personal View - by Vera Ricketts
Well, how time flies as now Autumn is just round the corner and it will soon be
time to put the clocks back with longer nights. But what a wonderful moon it
was last month! It was a real Harvest moon, and seemed so close you felt you
could almost touch it. Although the moon has different names according to the
time of year, I only remember the Harvest moon. I keep looking for a book on
the moon, so I know when and what the moon is called, but I haven’t found one
yet. So I will keep looking and know I will find one eventually, as I look after
two second-hand bookshops, for the Allendale Centre and the National Trust,
and having some lovely books donated to both. If you have donated any to
either, thank you very much for them, as they bring in very welcome income for
both places.
Most of the fund-raising has now finished for the year, but if you put up a
poster for an event, will you please, please take it down afterwards!
I waited three weeks for one notice to be taken down, and in the end I gave up
and took it down myself. I know one shouldn’t put posters on telephone poles,
but we all do it. Some posters are very pretty, but they are hard to read, and
often forget one of the vital bits of information, so if you are doing a poster in
future, please remember the three most important bits – what, where and when.
I have often seen posters with lots of detail except when it is on! I did mention
this to one person who had done it, but their answer was that they had put
their e-mail address on the poster! But not everyone has e-mail. The posters
for the Car Boot sale at the Cricket club I took down in the end as no-one else
did. Then there were wedding signs as well. Ok, I don’t expect them to go
straight away, but in a day or two, please. I did find one rather out of date one
for the KL run in Nov 2013. Can anyone beat that?
Looking forward to the future, have you ever thought of doing volunteer work
for anything? At the Allendale Centre we are looking for volunteers to help
over the lunchtime period, 12 noon to 2 p.m. or longer if you wish. I know
some young mums are looking for something to pass the time when the children
start school. We already have one or two mums who come in during the day.
It’s a good way to fill your time and help others. We have a wonderful friendly
atmosphere and it would help us to get back on track, and we are very flexible
with times to suit you. Maybe you have youngsters looking for work experience.
this would be a great way to start. We are looking forward to the winter, but
hopefully we will have some more hot sun first.

It has been lovely to return to Preschool with such lovely weather. The children are
making the most of our outdoor area. The garden has now been returned to a
manageable condition after becoming a wilderness over the summer. The potatoes were
made into potato salad for snack and the carrots, even though small, were very tasty.
One of the wonderful things about being hidden away amongst the trees is the amount
of wildlife encountered. The squirrels and rabbits run around the school field and the
children love to watch. We found a frog, a newt, countless bugs, insects and spiders. I
have to say the reactions to these varied!
If you have a child who is two years old or over and you would like to book a visit to the
setting, please call the office. We work a flexible system for booking and will cater for
your individual needs where possible. So many great friendships are built in Pre-School
for both children and parents, which continue throughout their education and beyond.

After welcoming two visitors Barbara greeted our Speaker Mrs. K.
Dickinson, a lifetime fair ground worker and enthusiast. This was her
second visit to our Branch and her talk this time was of that most
popular fair ground ride, the Dodgems.
America has a long tradition of State Fairs. Wild West Shows etc and showmen were
searching for new more daring, exciting or scary rides for their customers. In 1890 an
inventor made what can only be described as an electrified bicycle which looked mostly
like a penny farthing bicycle which was not successful. In 1921 the first electrified
dodgem (similar to the ones we know today) arrived in England and when Billy Butlin
saw one at Blackpool he had them installed at his first holiday camp and fairground at
Skegness and took on the U.K. Agency for them. Many other countries worldwide have
fairs and inventors in Germany, France, Italy, the U.S. and England started making them
and the tracks needed. Italians made very elaborately shaped cars and still do so. One
firm made them in animal form with heads that turned when the wheel was turned,
another firm in the shape of a gendarme which was a disaster. Most firms use steam
engines to power their tracks with a voltage of 110 volts which can shock but is not fatal.
The early tracks were made of wood and heavy metals a were difficult to transport and
erect but one inventor found that using aluminium on the floors and framework made
tracks that could be erected in 3 hours. In 1960 a dodgem car could cost ВЈ497 (the
same as a Mini then) but a new car today can cost ВЈ14,000, well ones from China can be
bought for £2,000 but they don’t last!! Our Speaker answered many questions and was
thanked for her talk and then we had our usual refreshments while Floral Arrangements
were given to members with Birthdays this month.
Members have been busy this month. Barbara helped with the W.I. Stall at the Bestival at
Lulworth Castle with some of our fellow evening branch members. Eight members
attempted the difficult W.I. Annual County Quiz but are still awaiting the results. Angela
arranged a very pleasant visit to Knole Gardens (well worth a visit) and were surprised
to find a team from Gardeners World filming; they doubt if they will be seen on T.V.
Barbara met a representative from the Weymouth Women's Refuge that we support and
hand over several bags of goodies which were appreciated and of course there was our
visit to Ian Willis’ Secret Garden.
Nest months promises to be a busy one with some members attending the County
Meeting in Poole, invitations have been received from Bere Regis to join them in Line
Dancing and the W.I. Group Meeting is to be held here with Paul Atterbury from the
Antiques Road Show speaking to our members.
Three members, Ruth, Vicky and Jeanine had all created Fairground Collages for our
competition but were so good it was decided to make them joint winners and Chris's
lovely Begonia won flower of the month.
Our meeting on the 8th October will have Peter Invernee talking on Operation
Christmas Child when we will be bringing shoeboxes filled with gifts for children.

Quote �The Bridge’ for a local
English Usage - a personal view by Michael Evans
I was in Canada for most of August, so there was no English Usage article in
September, but I came home with material for a new English-North American
dictionary. On one occasion, when I was staying in a motor home (an RV) I had
just left a public convenience (washroom) when I met a man who asked me “Is
there a line up?” Thinking he wanted to hang out some washing to dry, I said “I
didn’t see one.” This must have sounded odd to him, because I later found he
was asking if there was a queue for the toilet. Preparing to move on, I put my
luggage in the boot (trunk) checked the oil under the bonnet (hood,) made sure I
had enough petrol (gas) and verified my tyre (tire) pressures. I’d been made
aware that walkers would be on the sidewalk, not the pavement, because that’s
the road. Strangely, autumn is the fall while the other three seasons have the
same names as here. These and many other vocabulary differences are probably
well-known to many of you (such as elevator for lift, suspenders for braces,
pants for trousers, vest for jacket) and though I was in a country that has a
language that sounds mostly like ours, it was foreign enough to make me choose
my words carefully!

The Tap Dancing Mermaid presented by Tessa Bide
Gather round for the Moon’s magical story about a tippetty-top tap dancer who
he has been watching. Marina Skippett creeps out of her house every night to
shuffle and stomp on the boardwalk to the sounds of the sea. She can’t tap
dance at home any more since her evil, tractor-sized Aunty banned it! But
then….one moonlit night, Marina meets a mysterious, watery boy swimming in
the sea and her life is never the same again! Stunning puppets, original live music
to sing along to and tap dancing that will make you want to stick 50ps to your
shoes and join in! Age 3+

Sturminster Marshall Evening WI
Instead of a regular meeting in August the Evening WI Group held
a Barbeque and Treasure Hunt. A huge thanks to Pete and Lesley
Moors for hosting the event in their lovely garden – the weather was kind and all
had a great time. It was particularly good to have some of the afternoon group
members join us. As this event was also opened up to husbands and partners
we have had a lot of feedback from the men folk along the lines of joining our
ranks! Sorry guys – ladies only!
The Treasure Hunt organised by Rose, was a huge success with three pairings
tying for first place so it came down to a tie-break question, the tension was
palpable! The eventual winners were Gladys and Jackie who won a box of
chocolates, which were shared with the revellers. Thank you Rose for all your
hard work. For those in the village who were wondering why large numbers of
people were wandering the village on an August evening peering quizzically at
houses, lamp posts and letter boxes we hope this solves the mystery
Our October meeting on 16th will be along the lines of a Call My Bluff quiz night
and on this occasion we will be raising money for the Weldmar Hospice. Please
come along and join us at 7.15 p.m. for a 7.30 p.m. start at The Memorial Hall,
for what should be a fun evening for a wonderful cause.
NEW YEAR’S EVE PARTY – 31st December 2014
During the winter months we see less of our neighbours due to darker days and
colder weather. We therefore thought it would be nice to try and get the
community together this coming New Year’s Eve with a party at the Hall. This
will include disco music and dancing until late, curry and rice during the evening
and the first drink free. Tickets are priced at ВЈ15 and any profit from the sale of
tickets (minimum of £5 per head) will be split between two local charities, Julia’s
House and the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. So please promote
amongst family, friends and neighbours, and let’s see if we can get as many
people as possible to attend and enjoy the evening together. This is our first
attempt at something like this, so please support us and these two very
worthwhile charities…we may then do it again!!

Notes from your District Councillor
On 11th September I attended a crisis meeting convened for the Memorial Hall in
Sturminster Marshall to discuss the problems posed by the urgent need to find a
new Chairman and a new Treasurer and indeed other committee members if the
continued functioning of this invaluable community asset is to remain viable.
Those who have struggled on keeping the facility in being have done sterling work
over many years but it is a measure of their efforts that the work which was
originally done by a committee of 28 drawn from all Hall users has of late fallen to
the lot of a handful of dedicated volunteers and this can plainly not continue.
We must all sincerely hope that the necessary support and assistance will be
forthcoming from the many groups who benefit from the Hall, user groups and
parents alike, and without regard to residence in the Village, so as to enable the Hall
to make its vital contribution to the life of the village.
The District Council is in the middle of a process of reviewing the Governance
arrangements of the Town and Parish Councils within its District. Insofar as this
ward is concerned the recommendations are for Sturminster Marshall simply to limit
the number of parish Councillors to 9 but for Shapwick, which is grouped with
Pamphill, to reduce the number of Pamphill parish Councillors from 5 to 2. The
background is that such an adjustment is needed to ensure as closely as possible that
in each parish a single vote results in the same proportionate level of representation
as elsewhere and similar examples have been found elsewhere in the District by the
Working Group which has examined these matters. Their recommendations are
now out for comment which is needed by December.
The application of Nisa Local for a Premises Licence to sell alcohol and provide
recorded music was granted by the District Council's Licensing Sub-Committee on
10th September in respect of premises at 66 High Street Sturminster Marshall.
Concerns had been expressed by objectors over traffic and parking issues which the
Sub-Committee has power to review if difficulties arise in practice.
Paul Bennett. 14th September 2014
Roadside Hedges
As a life long resident in Shapwick I would like to say a big thank you and what a
fantastic job this year is being made of cutting the roadside hedges back to a
height that allows us to see across the beautiful surroundings that we are lucky
enough to have on our doorstep, over the last few years they have been getting
higher and higher and was like driving down through a tunnel, so again well done
for making our village look tidy again and for giving us back our views.

Inside Out at St. Mary’s
Just when you think you know what you are going to do – someone says “you can’t do
Tom Roberts did warn us that all the ideas we had for the Revitalisation project were
subject to change as other agencies get involved – and he was right!
He invited the EDDC to look at our preliminary plans before they are submitted for
approval later in the year. The Conservation Officer who visited St. Mary’s agreed we
need an extension, but did not like the plans to join it onto the Church Tower. He felt
this detracted from the Tower and suggested a new build along the North Wall instead.
What a shock….. but actually when this is considered more closely, it is a much better
idea. The new building would be an open block that offers flexibility to subdivide the
space to accommodate our current needs of toilets, kitchen area and vestry and still
allow changes and expansion to meet the needs of future generations.
The Church Fete was held around the Church on a sunny day on 6 th September and it
was lovely to see so many people having a good time. Stalls and entertainment, old and
new, helped to make the day enjoyable – stunning stalls, great games and even a Zipwire
for toys! Our thanks go to the many people who contributed to making the day a
success, which raised a magnificent ВЈ3000.
On the following Saturday, the Church was pleased to welcome the intrepid participants
in the annual Dorset Historic Churches’ Ride and Stride event. Some were hardened
cyclists riding many miles to visit lots of churches – other took a slower pace. We hope
they were rewarded with good sponsorship.
All churches are obliged to have a Quinquennial inspection of the fabric, undertaken by
an architect. St. Mary’s inspection was carried out earlier this year. The report lists all
repairs and works needed over the next five years and rates them from “Urgent” to
“Desirable”. It is good to report that the Church is basically sound, but with the most
urgent work needed to ensure waterproofing and the repair of stonework. Most of
these repairs are on the building that is hundreds of years old. It is not surprising that it
needs a little TLC!
Our Harvest weekend is on 11th and 12th October, starting with a Gift Day on the
Saturday morning, with a stall of cakes, preserves, produce and bric-a-brac, with a coffee
morning in the church. We look forward to seeing parishioners and supporters as we
continue to raise money for the upkeep of the church.
There are two Harvest Festival services on Sunday 12 th October. The 9.30 am service is
a Harvest Festival Family Service when harvest gifts may be brought to Church. This
year we are supporting the Food Bank and Hyped in Wimborne. A list of suitable dry
foods for the Food Bank can be found in the Church porch. Alternatively fresh produce
will be donated to Hyped. Nigel Feaver, Rector of Wincanton, and former resident of
Sturminster Marshall, will be preaching at the 6pm service, which will be followed by a
“Bring and Share” Harvest supper. Do come and join us for the services and at the
Supper. We look forward to seeing you.
Do you feel that NOBODY CARES?
Well, WE DO!
Come and join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 in the Memorial Hall
for a friendly, no frills service and meet ordinary people just like you.
We’d like to get to know you.

Time to consider the lilies* by Lys de Bray
Lilies are best selected from a reputable supplier's catalogue which will have lovely
pictures of lovely flowers that you won't have space for, but there's always another year.
Lilies are best not got in a packet from a garden centre. I hate to see them squeezed
into a too-small packet and I can hear them squeaking `Oi! Get me out of 'ere, I can't
Have ready a really large pot, lilies don't like hot roots which they'll get if planted in a
too-small container. Make up a delicious mix in a wheelbarrow of Вј good garden soil, Вј
precious leafmould saved for the purpose, Вј sieved compost and Вј fine grit. If you
garden on calcareous (chalky) soil, substitute John Innes No. l for your earth as most
lilies don't like chalk, the exception being the beautiful pure white Madonna Lily, Lilium
candidum. You can crowd the bulbs, there's enough nourishment in the pot(s) for two
seasons, three if you water with weak tomato fertiliser in year two. Plant the bulbs 2 to
3 times their own depth and sit each on a small handful of the fine grit: keep the pot(s) in
a roofed-over, sheltered place with light for the winter so that cold rain doesn't pan the
surface or frost penetrate the sides of the container which should be perched on feet or
pebbles. When the compost dries out, water a little with rainwater, not too much. Put
stakes in for each bulb- at planting time so as not to damage them. Keep the pots in a
slightly shaded place until the flower-buds form and then bring into the sun. Protect
from slugs and look over the plants every day for the-dreaded lily-beetle which is a
convenient bright red (convenient for the gardener, not the beetle) and destroy as you
find them. You'll have to be quick as when they fall off they turn upside down presenting
hard-to-see black undersides. This beetle will consume fritillaries too.
The easiest lily to grow is the old favourite, L regale, the Regal lily - white with pinkmauve reverse and a powerful and heavenly scent. Good bulbs should produce 25
flowers per stem in the first year, less in the second. After that buy new bulbs and plant
the older bulbs in the garden to sink or swim. If you have lily-happy soil they may
increase. They like to be watered with sun-warmed water as Beverly Nichols used to
do, standing the cans in a row in the sun and watering in late afternoon. Another choice
may be L. auratum - the `golden-rayed lily of Japan' which has large heavily scented dark
spotted white and yellow flowers. Sometimes a bulb no bigger than others and planted
at the same time will produce an amazing head of as many as 30+ bowl-shaped flowers
on a 5ft (1.5m) stem. This happened to me many years ago, truly this gardener's reward.
I got a photo taken of me and the lily-flowers, the flowers were amazing. But - two
warnings: the stamens carry a powerful natural dye which will stain your skin or your
clothes, very, very hard to remove from your best frock or favourite tee-shirt as
happened to me this year. Florists usually cut off the stamens before selling the flowers.
Lily-pollen is dangerously poisonous to cats which can brush against the stamens (if the
flower stems are short and/or in a pot). The toxic pollen is then licked off the cat's fur,
ingested and can have serious consequences.#
* Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow, they toil not, neither do they spin: and yet I say unto
you that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.'
Matthew 6: 28.
