- “Scentenary”, Chideock WI Centenary Diffuser Continue reading →
This is the first photograph of the Chideock WI Centenary Diffuser, taken in the kitchen where it was imagined, researched, designed, mixed and ultimately produced. It is made of natural oils carefully researched with expert advice. The fragrance which we have named “Scentenary” in celebration of 100 years of the WI in our village, was selected by WI members from three which were initially developed, and the winner was then trialled for its lasting qualities. Members submitted designs for the label to reflect Chideock’s Jurassic Coast location. The glass bottle and packaging are recyclable, with the transparent wrapping and ribbon chosen to be plastic free and therefore more environmentally friendly. This is a limited production, priced at £12 to reflect the quality of the oils and the cost of similar commercial products.
Our “Scentenary” room diffuser makes an ideal special gift or keepsake and will be on sale at the Party in the Park on Saturday 6th July. Don’t miss out

- SALISBURY DIOCESAN GUILD OF BELLRINGERS FEATURING CHIDEOCK BELLRINGERS WHO DIED IN WWI Continue reading →
PUBLICATION DATE: 1 MAY 2019
This Booklet has been produced after four years of commemorations across the Guild marking the centenary of the Great War. It is fully illustrated throughout and its cover is taken from an original artwork created for the Guild by Westbury artist Helen Chester (www.helenchesterarts.co.uk).
Contents include: Guild Memorial and Cathedral Commemorations, Ringers from the Diocese who Died (biographical details and details of ringing commemorations), Towers and Branches, The ‘Ypres Bells’, Other Commemorative Ringing and Events, Armistice Centenary and Post war. The Booklet also contains wartime extracts from Guild Reports and The Ringing World.
For the first time, in this publication, you will have in one place information that previously stood separately. The impact of the whole is all the more moving. Guild members and those from beyond will value and appreciate this Booklet both now and in years to come.
An extract from the Foreword to the Booklet by Nicholas Holtam, Bishop of Salisbury and Patron of the Guild.
Lest we forget, this history reminds us of real people and costly lives–people from our communities, our predecessors committed to ringing bells in towers where we now stand. It is good to know them by name and to recognise their significance for us today.
