Although we are just at the beginning of the summer holidays, our thoughts are already turning to the Scarecrow Trail 2019, which will once again be taking place over the autumn half-term holiday from Saturday 26th October - Sunday 3rd November.
The Mortimer Bellringers took part in the Reading Branch Striking competition held in Purley church on Saturday. In this, we ring at a set of bells we have never rung before. The aim is to ring as evenly as possible with marks off for every time one bells clangs against another. Last year this was held in Mortimer and with the home team advantage, we came third.
A great afternoon was had by all at the annual Mortimer West End Show on Saturday 24th August. There was a real buzz in the air, as people admired all the hard work of the entrants - about 450 different entries in all - with art, photography, handicrafts, vegetables, fruit and flowers, wine and baking all on display, as well as the beautiful work of the local children.
If you would like a wreath for Remembrance Sunday, the British Legion will be happy to order
one for you and if you have specific requirements e.g RAF, Navy, Army, will obtain the regiment insert.

Please follow @VillageMortimer if you want to get quick updates on village events from the MVP.
MVP was formed in 2008/2009 by a group of villagers wanting to fulfil some of the requests expressed by the village in the second Parish Plan – more things going on locally for young families, more things going on locally for the older generation, and better communications, for example. You can see the Parish Plan on the SMPC website with the actions we set off to try and do.
