Rattery Parish Events and Information

Rattery Village Hall - September - December

Anybody  in Rattery who was perhaps  thinking of giving pilates a try but who  has not been able to attend  the current series , has an opportunity  to  join us in September .
It is  a lovely way to start the week  and  just so blissfully  easy to get to our village hall  for 10.00am on Monday mornings , rather than having to fight your way through traffic  into Totnes for these classes . We are really keen for them to continue  but  obviously Annita , the owner of  pilates southwest,  needs  a commitment  very soon - ( by July 21st apparently)-  from  a certain number of people before she  can definitely schedule  this class in her Autumn timetable and formally engage  Elise to continue  the Rattery class. If you would like to   find out more (and hopefully commit  to the Rattery village hall class for September - December ) please contact Annita  telephone 07773 645748    or email

PCC treasurer
Hello Rattery,
I am currently the PCC treasurer and have been in the role for several years and I would like to stand down .
We are looking for someone who has a couple of hours a month to spare to bank money deal with a few cheques , claim gift aid and keep the accounts up to date on an excel spreadsheet for the auditor at the end of the year.
If there is anyone who would like to contribute to the village church then please get in touch and I can give you more detail.
Thank you,
Ian Samuel
