You can join the new "100 Club" and help raise money for the church. Fill in the form that recently came through your letterbox, alternatively contact a church warden or any other church member you know. There will be a draw each month with a first prize of up to £100 (20% of monthly income), second prize up to £50 (10% of monthly income) and third prize up to £25 (5% monthly income). This is a chance to have a win whilst helping keep our beautiful 11th century church up and running. Reminder:- we need funds to pay for the repairs to Vestry roof and additional stonework repairs to the stone fabric of the building, which will cost us £9,178, and we have raised £6,482 so far - Please click here to see full details and a copy of the signing up form


Sir Isaac Newton – A talk was given by Denys Cook on Friday 10th November in the School Hall that was attended by 50 people from Baydon and surrounding villages and raised over £429. We all enjoyed this amusing and very informative evening on Sir Isaac’s connection with Baydon. Denys had done a huge amount of research to find the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. He told us how Sir Isaac was ranked second on a list of people who had been the most influential in history and was rated as the greatest scientist of all time. Also, he read us articles written in the 1892 about the house Sir Isaac had lived in in Baydon, as well as another written in 1927 in the same vein, these both turned out to be myths. Denys kept us in suspense as to the truth and it turned out Sir Isaac did own Finches Farm House with 135 acres, but he never even visited Baydon and had bought the property to leave to relatives! There were craft stalls, a raffle and Cheese, Wine and socialising which was thoroughly enjoyed too - Kate Buckingham
