The South Wilts Church Magazine dated October 1909 says:-
"THE BELL TURRET. - This little addition to our parish Church is now very nearly finished. It will give a finish to the little building and make it look like a Church. When the workmen depart we shall have from one source or another to find the money to pay the builder. Mr Herrington of the farm will be most pleased to receive any donation however small towards the extinction of this necessary debt."

As you will be aware last week we held interviews for the position of Team Vicar in the Chalke
Valley Benefice. Once again, I would like to thank all of you who supported the recruitment
process in any way.
Three candidates attended for interview and two of them were outstanding. As a result the Bishop of Ramsbury has requested that the following announcement is made in our churches this week and this is repeated here for those of you who are unable to be in church this weekend.
Following the interviews for the post of Team Vicar in the Chalke Valley Team
Ministry, the Bishop of Ramsbury is pleased to announce that, subject to the
usual statutory checks, he has appointed The Rev'd Alison Waterhouse to the
post and she has accepted. Alison is currently serving in the Benefice of St
Peter's, Petersfield, in Hampshire. A date for Alison's licensing will be
determined in due course. Please pray for Alison as she prepares to leave her
current post, and move to Wiltshire.
The Bishop is also pleased to announce that following the interviews, he has offered The Rev'd Kate Woolven the post of Associate Priest within the Chalke Valley Team Ministry, and that Kate has accepted. The Bishop anticipates Licensing Kate as soon as the usual statutory checks have been completed.
Please pray for Kate as she moves into this formal appointment as a member of the ministry team.
Jenny and I are delighted with this outcome and look forward to Alison and Kate joining the
ministry team in due course.
With love and prayers,
Ruth and Jenny
The Rev'd Dr Ruth Howlett-Shipley
The Rev'd Canon Jenny Taylor
