From our local Shepherds:

At this time of the year most of our breeding sheep are in lamb and dogs can frighten them to the point of losing their lambs.

So PLEASE remember to keep dogs on the leash when walking anywhere near sheep.

Thank you from all local shepherds!

From HMG – Covid Tier changes:

With effect from 5 January 2021, the whole of England has entered Covid Level 5 – National Lockdown. For information about Lockdown Regulations click here.

Please Note: From 3rd Jan we will be closed for refurbishment.  We hope to see you soon when we are out of Lockdown and when our refurbishments are finished.   We will keep you posted on works, but do ask if you have any questions.

Best wishes,

From Lizy Ellis – The Lord’s Larder – Yeovil’s Community Food Bank:

This local charity, run by volunteers, has never been more needed by so many. It provides free emergency food parcels to those in need, as they are referred by local agencies, covering a 20 mile radius of Yeovil. This is an issue right on our doorsteps, not just an inner city one.

Thank you again to all those who gave so generously before Christmas, now our greatest way to support this charity is through a monetary donation which can be done on line.

====================================

Please remember the Countryside Code:

‘Keep dogs on a lead at all times near farm animals – by law you’re obliged to keep your dog under control so they don’t disturb animals or wildlife.’ 

==============================================

Reminder – Dog Fouling:

A person in charge of a dog, whether they are the owner or not, must clean up after their dog has fouled in a public place. Failure to do so may lead to a fine or prosecution in court.

The SSDC advice to dog-walkers is always to carry ‘poo’ bags and dispose of bags in a dog or litter bin. Not disposing a ‘poo’ bag correctly is also a dog fouling and littering offence.
