THE charity Farming Community Network (FCN) will hold its annual Plough Service at the Church of St Edmond’s, Dolton, near Winkleigh, on Sunday, January 13, starting at 6.30pm.

The speaker will be local farmer, Kevin Down.

Local FCN representative, Joanne Jones, said: "The service is an opportunity for members of the local community to join together to look forward to the coming year’s planting and growing season."

FCN is a Christian organisation and registered charity working in the farming community across the UK. It has hundreds of volunteers drawn from rural churches and farming backgrounds who provide a national telephone helpline (03000 111 999, 7am to 11pm) and a visiting service to farmers and families facing difficulties.

The representatives provide both pastoral and practical support to those dealing with such issues as financial difficulties, animal disease, mental health and family disputes.

There will be refreshments available after the service at Dolton Village Hall.
