Martin Weymont our Vicar for the past 17 years is retiring on 1st March. He has been a steadfast friendly figure in our village and attended as many events as humanly possible over those years.
To celebrate and mark his retirement there will be a party at Mells Barn on a Saturday in February. If you would like to come and show him your support and thanks please contact me and I will let you know the date and time.
The Kitchenalia Evening booked for Friday 20th March unfortunately has had to be CANCELLED. We hope to re-arrange this evening later in the year.
Our Church AGM will be held in the Village Hall on Thursday 26th March at 7.30pm. We would appreciate your support, especially at this time of no Vicar.
On 10th May at 6.30pm we will be holding a very unique to Buckland Dinham Service. Rogation. This involves starting and finishing in the Church but we will walk around the village (upper parts) and read bible passages/poems & prayers at different places and be very thankful we live in such a wonderful part of the Country.
Important note for your diary: CREAM TEAS Village Hall Saturday 16th May 3-5pm

The Church of St. Michael is situated in the middle of the village - a little to the side of the main road. Parts of the church date back to around 1200 while the north chapel was added in 1325 and the tower in 1480. The church was restored in the late 19th Century to its present form.
The Parochial Church Council
__The Parochial Church Council consists of a Chairman Rev. Martin Weymont, our new Churchwardens Jill Wright & Geoff Merriden, Treasurer Sara Corbett. Secretary Debbie Cary. Other PCC members Ian & Rosemary Williams, Millie Merriden & David Roberts. The PCC meets several times a year to discuss the general running of the Church, Services, Maintenance of the building and how to increase the congregation!
We have in the past few years held festivals and concerts in our church in an effort to raise funds for the church. We are also applying for grants for our new hospitality area and w.c. in church. These have to be matched by locally generated donations. We welcome new ideas and new people.
