Round the World Clipper Race 2019-20

TMF member Keith Winstanley has now joined  his Clipper Yacht for four legs of the round the world race. Keith is saiingl on the yacht UNICEF for legs 2,3 6 and 8.

It is possible to follow his progress using a live feed map by clicking here. Once the program  loads you can move around by holding the left mouse button down and moving the mouse over the map. You can also zoom in and out by using the scroll wheel on top of your mouse. Give it a try? Also if you hold your mouse cursor over the boats it will show their name. Hint, Keith’s boat is medium blue on the map!

We wish Keith a wonderful time and our chairman says ' Keep safe Keith. Enjoy every second. We are all rooting for you!'

March 2020

Keith currently has had a  haemorrhage in his left eye just before starting on his penultimate leg. He hopes to start on his final leg across the Atlantic later in the year.

At the AGM of the TMF we elected David Beswick  into a newly created role, that of President.

Peter Wilshaw resigned as our Chairman and a new system of selecting the Chairman was initiated. It was proposed that the Vice Chairman was in post for two years after which he became the Chairman. The tenure of the Chairman would therefore  also be two years. This was carried.

The membership elected Peter Chamberlain as our Chairman and John Turnock was proposed and elected as Vice Chairman.

A new slant on the Christmas story as described by TMF “thespians”

In the Christmas Carol Concert at Holy Trinity on Sunday 15th December, the TMF enacted the shepherds being told, by the Angel of the Lord, of the birth of Jesus.

Jonathan Jones made a great Angel of the Lord, passing on the news to the shepherds from “on High” in the pulpit.

Thanks to the Rev. Jules for the photographs.


Contact the Chairman about a new TMF Polo or Sweat shirt complete with TMF Logo and your name!

Sweatshirts and Polo shirts with the TMF logo (and your name if requested)

On Saturday 8th Feb. 2020 several members of TMF turned up at Holy Trinity to clear the churchyard of Christmas wreaths and dead flowers. They also ensured that all dead branches were picked up and incinerated. Typical of our efforts, Storm Ciara struck on the next day to replenish the branches on the ground!

At the AGM in January, Peter, who as been our excellent Chairman for the last five years, gave up the post. We are so grateful for his enthusiasm  and dedication to the role and wish him  all the best in his move to live nearer to his daughter.

TMF Committee take action to prevent the potential spread of coronavirus to members of TMF.

After discussions, using electronic communications and not face to face meetings, the committee decided that it was in the best interest of all members if we cancelled the March meeting. We also intend to make decisions about future meetings based upon the current conditions in both Eccleshall and the country in general and advice from the government.

Our Chairman has sent an email out to all members explaining why the decision was made and it can be found by clicking here.

Remember to take precautions to prevent any possible spread.

Covid-19 Assistance

Mothering Sunday Primula

The flowers for “Mums” were collected by Peter and brought to Holy Trinity where they were placed at the back of the church to be collected by anyone who wanted one. These flowers were paid for from TMF funds.
