Entertaining evening at Lakeview Manor

An enjoyable evening was had last night at Lakeview Manor at their ‘Lakeview Carols with Honiton Town Band’

Good food, great music and a sing-along of our favourite carols, plus a raffle with super prizes.

Our thanks as always to Richard and Linda for organising the evening, and for donating the takings from the evening and from the raffle to the churches in the Mission Community. A magnificent £672.50 was raised!

A huge thank you to everyone involved.

The Wyndham Singers

Need Your Vote!
As you may possibly know, Charles, our organist at Plymtree, is a member of the Wyndham Singers, who, each year, put on Concerts to raise funds for their chosen charity.  This year they are supporting CHAT, the Churches Housing Action Team, a body concerned with helping the homeless and those struggling with money problems and crippling debt.  Homelessness is a real problem in our part of the world, and especially in and around Tiverton.
CHAT is about to lose their Debt and Money Advisor, and have applied to Aviva for a £10,000 grant to maintain their vitally important work. Put simply, each year, Aviva gives awards to projects which attract the highest number of votes.
If you would like to vote for this cause, please visit Plymtree’s website at
