OF THE COMMUNITY FRIENDSHIP CAFE
community friendship café in the church is reopening on
September (9am to 5pm Monday-Friday) with very reasonably priced
no-one is present, please
feel free to go in and serve yourself.
There will however, be times when the café will
be closed - for ongoing
work in the church, or for special church services. Occasionally there
may be very
short periods when access to the church itself is restricted. We will aim to advise in
advance when the
café is closed. The
arranging facility is also progressing very well but will not be
available for general
use until the flooring and wall tiling is complete to avoid the risk of
unnecessary water damage to the walls/floors.
Please take the time to visit our new community facilities.

A VILLAGE RANGER
Parish Council is looking
for volunteers to help look after our footpaths, primarily any minor
pruning if necessary and reporting any significant access issues to the
Parish Path Liaison Officer (Parish
Councillor David Sparkes),
then liaise with Somerset Rights of Way. To identify
a footpath and stile which you may like to "adopt" click here. We've had a good response so
far but there are still some left! See

Note that it is the responsibility of the landowner to maintain Rights of Way.
