Having being out of it's worship hall and community centre for over 19 months, The Salvation Army will re enter it's premises on Saturday 12th May. The hall was set on fire by unknown persons, causing extensive damage to the community hall which meant it could not be used until comlpetely refurbished. Added to which a problem of subsidence was discivered and this meant underpinning had to be done in the worship hall. Meanwhile the community work and the worship of The Salvation Army has been held in 3 different centres. The Gorse Hill School, Swindon Gorse Hill Baptist Church and Storehose Turning Point Centre.The Salvation Army continue to be grateful for their practical support. Now it is time to go back!!

A team of 16 are attempting the 3 Peaks Challenge in 24 hours or under. This challenge consists of hiking each of the highest mountain peaks in Scotland, England and Wales. We are attempting this to raise money for the Prospect Hospice in Swindon. All members are from Honda of The UK Manufacturing, Engine Plant. We are all in training is some form or other and will be hiking the 3 highest peaks of the Brecon Beacons in April as a test and to gauge our current fitness levels. We have managed to secure a coach, 2 drivers and the cost of the diesel for the entire trip, donated by The Honda institute and Ladbroke Security Services, which is a very generous gesture, especially in this current financial climate. We have a web page which will be updated with pictures closer to the time of the event. 22nd June. https://www.justgiving.com/teams/peakoffitnessnot Based on information supplied by Ray Withers.

This Psychic and Healing Fayre will be held at the Crossway Suite as usual. It has always been a very busy event, so pre-booking via the website has become a very popular way of securing an appointment time with a particular reader or therapist to avoid a wait or disappointment on the night. However, pre-booking is not essential, and many of our visitors like to come in to see who they feel drawn to. We have a relaxed, informal and friendly atmosphere, welcoming all who choose to visit us.

Still, at least the elves have small hands and are good at the fiddly stuff. That’s why electronic toys usually come perfectly assembled, but if an ordinary person tries to take them apart all the bits spring out and vanish behind the sofa, in the pile of the carpet or among the seed in the budgie’s cage. − SantaRead Santa's blog »
Is it too early to say we are now play-off contenders? I’m not 100 per cent sure either way just yet because we all know an injury to any key players could cost us, but it is looking more and more positive as the weeks go on. − Dan The FanRead Dan The Fan's blog »
