The Messenger publication is well loved and instantly recognised by anyone in the Pewsey Vale.  It’s produced  ten times a year and covers the parishes of Alton Barnes, Alton Priors, Beechingstoke, Charlton St Peter, Easton Royal, Huish, Manningford Bruce, Milton Lilbourne, North Newnton, Oare, Pewsey, Rushall, Stanton St Bernard, Upavon, Wilcot, Woodborough and Wootton Rivers.

It’s so useful and includes information on Church services, events at the Bouverie Hall, coach trips, interesting and relevant articles, and lots more.

As with all things free in life, in the background there is an army of helpers who put this publication together and it all culminates in the ‘Collating Day‘.  This is the day when the printed pages are collated and stapled and it takes place on the last Thursday of every month (the next collating date is always on or around page 4 of each issue).

It’s good fun, with no bending or lifting, no rushing around and, of course, plenty of tea and cake and chit-chat.

The team starts collating at 9am and is finished by 10.30am/11am, so it’s not onerous and perhaps could be fitted around dropping children off to school or nursery.
