Tea Dance

A successful Tea Dance was held in the Parish Hall on Saturday 11th April. The event was hosted by ladies of the Compton Dando Community Association who served  traditional cakes and sandwiches.
Dance music was selected and recorded which added to the flavour of the afternoon. £155 was raised towards CDCA funds.  Thank you to everyone who supported this event.
A good time was had by all!

Very enjoyable Craft Day

Monday 16th March saw another craft day, organised by Harriette Dottridge. 17 crafters and visitors came for the day to demonstrate or have a go at some of the following: spinning, weaving, bead work, Dorset buttons, embossing, soft toy making, crochet, felt making and glass work. A small profit of £25 was made which will go to CDCA funds.

6 Intrepid Walkers

Sunday 29th March was a blustery and wet morning. As they say March came in like a lamb and is maybe going out like a lion. We walkers were appropriately dressed and had a very pleasant, if blustery and sometimes wet, walk through Lord's wood where the wild daffodils are in full bloom.

We also inspected the work that has been going on in the woods to open them up and to increase the indigenous species of trees and to clear some of the streams.

We returned, much invigorated, to have a ploughman's lunch in St Mary's.
