WHCT Ride and Stride

During a very special service on Sunday 6th February, St Michael’s, Tidcombe was rewarded for it’s sterling efforts in the 2021 Ride & Stride event with the presentation of the Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust’s Junior Cup to Kitty (aged 7) and to Wiltshire’s top fundraiser Andrew Makower who secured top spot for the second time! The presentation was made by the Lord Lieutenant, Sarah Troughton. Photo on the Tidcombe page of the website shows Kitty, Andrew and Sarah with Rector Michael McHugh and Mark Everall, Chairman of WHCT.

Ride and stride 2022 takes place on September 10th. For more information click here.


On 6th March we gathered for Fairtrade Fellowship following the 11am service. We enjoyed each others company along with Fairtrade tea and coffee plus the most delicious cakes made using as many Fairtrade ingredients as possible. Those who were unable to stay were able to ‘take away’ and some even bought whole cakes to take. We were not asking for donations but the generosity of our wonderful congregants was overwhelming as they insisted on giving. We therefore have £57 to donate to the Fairtrade Foundation. Thank you to everyone who baked, served, donated, ate and enjoyed!

Watch this space for our next Fairtrade event!
