Community Building Project Links

You will see at the left hand side of this page 2 new links related to the St Thomas Community Building Project.

The upper link entitled “Community Building Project” will take you to the Facebook page for the project, regularly updated with information as we proceed to get designs and approval for developing the site.

The lower link “Thurstonland & Stocksmoor Recommended Services” takes you to a Facebook Group where, for a small donation, local trades can post details of their services, or villagers can post recommendations for their neighbours. All donations will go towards funding the re-development of the church. This is a closed group, so you will initially have to apply for membership before being able to join it – but don’t worry, all villagers are welcome and will be accepted!

Vicars v Curates Cricket Result!


As part of the Festival f Faith a fun time was had by all at the first Vicars and Curates Village Cricket Match…. Vicar’s won, due to the brilliance and sportsmanship of the opposing team who were magnanimous in defeat. The  return leg will be played next year. What a wonderful evening!

Thank you to everyone who came, who played, supported, cheered, baked and cooked to make it such a fun event, one now firmly fixed in the Village calendar. A special thanks to Lee Booth the organiser, and to the Cricket Club for their hospitality.
