The Marlborough Times, 6th November 1880:
The Harvest Thanksgiving was held in this parish on Sunday last, when two sermons were preached by the Rev J.H. GALE which were both appropriate and effective, if we may judge from the collection which amounted to 4 9s in the morning and 18s 6d in the afternoon and was devoted to the maintenance of Savernake Cottage Hospital. The sun shone brightly and as one went to the church they could hardly fail to remark how sweetly the bells sounded in the autumn air. Hymns well suited to the occasion were sung, in which the whole congregation heartily joined, and we think that a village possessing such a church and such a choir and a vicar well beloved by small and great may well be congratulated. The text in the morning was 107th Psalm, 8th verse, and in the afternoon, Matthew 14th Chapter, 20th verse.
