Down your way: Charmouth

If you are interested in taking on a varied, interesting, enjoyable - if at times frustrating – role on the parish council, then Lisa Tuck, clerk to the council, would love to hear from you on 01297 560826.
Formal applications to be co-opted onto Charmouth Parish Council must be made, in writing, by November 1. Charmouth Football Club are well into the season now, and on Saturday play at home to Dowlish & Donyat, who are just below them in The Perry Street 2nd Division.
Having got off to a good start, The Robins have lost their last two games so could do with some vocal local support at Barrs Lane from 2.30pm.
Friends of Charmouth Library will be holding their AGM in the library on Monday night.
Having been phenomenally successful over the last year in saving the library for the community, building the new extension and training up a great team of volunteers, the committee is looking for some fresh faces to join them in running the library. Everyone is welcome to come and join in, with ‘drinks and nibbles’ from 6pm, with the AGM proper starting at 6.30pm.
Next Wednesday the popular ‘Soup and Pud’ event will be held at St. Andrews Community Hall, between 11am and 3pm.
Over the years this event has raised hundreds of pounds for Mary’s Meals – an organisation that aims to feed school children in some of the poorest parts of the world.
Just turn up on the day for your meal or, to find out more information, contact Hilary Sharp on 01297 560639.
A few weeks ago, the fourth Charmouth Literary Festival was held at St Andrews Hall.
Sadly I could not attend, but organiser Wendy Knee has been in touch to let me know how things went.
The theme for the day was ‘people and places’, and a series of professional and amateur writers and publishers spoke or held workshops that were based around this subject.
Inspiring tips and hints, coupled with audience participation, reading short stories and prose composed on the day, ensured everyone had an enjoyable time.
Personally I would have loved to have witnessed the ‘soap-box’, set up in the middle of Charmouth, from which various participants read their poetry and prose.
Maybe next year….
