Would you like to learn a new team skill, have some fun at the same time? Why not try BELL RINGING? It is an old English traditional activity which contributes much to the general community as well as the Church.
Bell ringing develops your musical ear, your power of concentration, not to mention your physical powers, and it can become a most enjoyable hobby.
It is also a skill which means you are welcome as a participant in any tower in the country and also countries abroad where bell ringing is done.
You can start at almost any age and you can return to it having had a break for some time.
• ring Peter on 01803 863962 if you think you would be interested
• practice evenings Wednesdays at 7.30pm (negotiable) at Berry Pomeroy Church
MEDITATION GROUP The Meditation Group meets at St John’s Church, Bridgetown, on the 2nd Friday of each month, from 7.30 to 9pm.
• everyone is welcome to attend this informal group

TOTNES POUND has a page (under the Community menu) with details and photos of the relaunch of the town’s alternative currency scheme.
The Totnes Pound is currently a physical local currency, backed by Sterling and accepted in 70+ businesses in the town. It’s administered as part of the Transition Town Totnes initiative.
Project aim: To make sure that wealth stays in the community where it will can be used in a more conscientious way with lower carbon impact, lower ecological impact and higher resilience.
PENNIES FROM HEAVEN There is a collection box at the back of St John’s Church every Sunday for your pennies and two-pennies.
The box is titled “Pennies for Heaven”.
The roast lunches on the first Sunday in the month are at the Albert Inn, Bridgetown, not the Prince Albert as previously published. Apologies for any confusion.
• if you’d like to join in, let the organisers know in advance
• more details are on the Groups & Meetings page
• Albert Inn’s own website
We’ve now added a special page for information about Weddings, including a downloadable invoice for core costs for wedding services provided by the Totnes Team Ministry.
NEED HELP? We’ve added a new page with some at-a-glance information for sources of help, along with a downloadable poster. • See the rest of the Community section for contacts for more help and advice.
