ANOTHER SUCCESS for the VILLAGE
and for MYTime

DURING THE BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND OF THE CANCELLED FÊTE A FURTHER £830 THROUGH SALES OF PLANTS AND BRIC-A-BRAC WAS ADDED TO THE £630 FROM THE APRIL CHALLENGE MAKING A GRAND TOTAL OF £1,460 DONATED TO MYTime thanks to the the very generous donationsof Worth Villagers and  Visitors

Following the success of the Plant and Bric-a-Brac Sale we have had three further articles published in the digital versions of local magazines with one of these also available in hard copy and maybe two more to follow, so lots of Publicity for the Village, the Village Hall and our resident Charity - MYTime.

As mentioned a while ago MYTime submitted a lovely article to Dorset Biz News saying how delighted they are with the support they receive from the Worth Community. To view that article as part of the Dorset Biz publication click this link:https://www.dorsetbiznews.co.uk/thank-you-mytime-generous-villagers-show-their-affection-for-charity-during-the-lockdown/ or to view a pdf copy of the article see under Publicity in the 'Minutes and Other Docs' on this site. The latest publications in which the article appears are The 'on-line' Dubber, the Purbeck Gazette also, until August, only available on-line and HOUSE, the South Coast Estate Agents magazine.

Do have a look at these articles to see our star Plant Saler (new word) - Yvonne Spencer representing the Plant and Bric-a-Brac teams who did such a great job.

 

Here are the links:

 

The Dubber - http://thedubber.co.uk/2020.07.pdf - with a colour pic made possible whilst it is being produced in electronic mode without the usual restrictions of size, cost and colour. This article also includes some recognition of Shiela Johnson and all she has done over the years, especially for the Fête Plant Stall. Hope you enjoy the article Shiela and seeing your protégé Yvonne carrying on your good work. Whilst The Dubber is always available on-line, there is a chance that it will also be back being delivered through your door in August.

 

Purbeck Gazette - https://www.purbeckgazette.co.uk/docs/pdfs/246.pdf -
front page picture and full article on page 12 with 2 pics. This publication is also in electronic mode again this month (July) though they are hoping to return to good old ‘hard copy’ in August.

HOUSE Lifestyle - a South Coast Estate Agents magazine - 

https://issuu.com/houseandlifestyle/docs/issue218 
also available in hard copy from local Estate Agents

 

Thank you Krista Cartlidge (Exec Director) and Kate Shaw (PR) of MYTime for getting us into both the Purbeck Gazette and the full article with pics into The Dubber, and more recently also HOUSE Lifestyle. 
Angela, The Dubber editor merged some extra words into that article that thanked everybody who helped and/or contributed to this initiative including one person in particular - Shiela Johnson - who has been at the heart of our Fête Plant Sales for many years, and despite getting ready to move house, still contributed well over half the plants for this year’s sale. Thank you Shiela and David for all you have done for the village. We send you both our best wishes for the future.

 

Keep an eye out for more articles on our success that we are hoping will appear in the Swanage Area Forum - https://www.swanage.gov.uk/ - and also the Swanage and Wareham Advertiser - pick up a copy or have a look at the digital version on their website Swanage & Wareham Voice - https://www.swanageandwarehamvoice.co.uk/

Gallery Pics - for some pics of the Plants and Bric-a-Brac see under Galleries

Once again, our thanks to the generosity of our Villagers and Visitors, the total reached to be donated to MyTime this year is an amazing £1,460.

 

We choose to support MYTime because they are part of our community and they provide one of the most worthwhile services imaginable – supporting young carers who give so much to those for whom they care. MYTime provide them with the opportunity, albeit briefly, to escape the daily commitment that is their life, establish friendships with others in a similar position, help create hope for their futures and all whilst encouraging them to have some fun. We applaud them and are proud for them to be amongst us in the village. And the fact that they deliver their meaningful work in a part of Worth’s proud history, the Radar Development Headquarters, and are planning to embark on some major improvements to that facility, is a testament to the continuity of our village and to the future of the young lives we all cherish.
We thank MYTime for being part of Worth’s past and our future,

DUBBER AREA
COMMUNITY RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRU
S
 

Unfortunately the Coronavirus situation is becoming more serious and some people will wish to self-isolate, either because they have the virus or in order to keep themselves safe. Our local Parish Councils and Church community are joining together to offer support during this difficult time.

We have set up special phone numbers and
e-mail addresses so that people in the Dubber area needing help or support while isolated will have a point of contact. There will be two support groups, one under the Langton and one under the Worth umbrella: residents of Harmans Cross should contact the Worth Group while Kingston residents may contact either group.

The contact details below can be used either by those wishing to seek support or those wishing to offer their services as volunteers. We will aim to offer the following services:

  • Picking up shopping

  • A friendly phone call or ‘Face Time’

  • Posting mail

  • Urgent supplies, including medicine

We also need volunteers to act as ‘duty officer’ on our rota to take phone calls/e-mails. They will be supplied with a phone and access to the relevant e-mail support address.

For the Langton support group:
phone 07388 728177 or e-mail langtonmatravers20@gmail.com

For the Worth support group:

phone 07423 305060 or e-mail worthmatravers20@gmail.com
