Give a little, change a lot. 

Have you thought about volunteering but don’t know where to start? Coming into what will hopefully be another nice summer, this is a great time to think about getting involved in the many community events taking place. These are ideal opportunities if you are looking to do some volunteering but don't have much time in your week. We also have lots of other great, more regular outdoor volunteering roles too!

 Have you got time to fill over the long summer holidays? Maybe you would simply enjoy being outdoors for a change of scene. Whatever your motivation, contact us to find out how you could get involved in volunteering. We have lots of other general volunteering opportunities available too.

Spark, with support from the NHS Symphony Programme, have launched a new website to promote wellbeing in South Somerset.  The site, Wellbeing South Somerset, features a comprehensive Directory of Support, where people can search through hundreds of local services, groups and activities that could improve their wellbeing, as well as health-boosting self-management tools and tips.  The directory, which is based on Health Connections Mendip’s successful model, will be a link that connects people with a wide range of community resources that could help them feel better, from lunch clubs and walking groups, to condition-specific support groups, and even housing and debt advice. You can access the website at 


The field behind the village hall is a public open space managed by the Parish Council. Please be aware that it is not a space for people to dump their unwanted waste. Please help keep this area one that can be enjoyed by everyone and dispose of your own waste responsibly.


 The grit bins are provided for members of the public to use the grit on public roads and pavements in times of icy or snowy weather.  If you are able, please feel free to use the grit near you to help keep our roads and pavements safe.  Also – on using the grit recently, it was discovered that someone has been using the grit bins to deposit bags of dog mess… please use the dog mess bins provided or take dog mess home to dispose of – please DO NOT put dog mess in the grit bins! 


 The Parish Council have been receiving complaints about increasing amounts of dog mess in several areas of the village.  Areas of concerns are Gibbs Lane, Denmans Lane, Main Street, Ruskway Lane and the footpaths that run along the top of the hill from the football club.  Many responsible dog owners clear up after their dogs. But there are a few persistent offenders who do not.  SSDC Enforcement Officers are involved and have been appealing for more information.  If you can help, please call them on 01935 462462.
