Village Notice Board:

For information and guidance relating to Coronavirus support, including home deliveries, we now have a dedicated page located here

From the Parish Clerk – Annual Parish Meeting:

The Annual Parish meeting, followed by the Annual Parish Council meeting, will be held on Tuesday 18th May

The Annual Parish meeting, which basically hears the annual review by the Parish Council Chairman, will be held in the village hall at 7.30 p.m on Tuesday 18th May. It will be immediately followed by the Annual Parish Council meeting: this second meeting, in addition to reviewing Parish Council finances, is also an opportunity to discuss any other current parish issues.

From Somerset Waste Partnership – Important Recycling Changes:

  • The following items will be added to weekly recycling collections:

– plastic pots, tubs and trays

– food & drink cartons (Tetra Pak etc)

– small household batteries

– small electrical items (kettles etc)

  • A new recycling container – a Bright Blue Bag – delivered to all homes.
  • With more being recycled, rubbish will be collected every three weeks instead of every two.
  • Collection days will change for roughly a third of households.

These changes will be introduced across South Somerset over the course of around two weeks (depending on where you live), starting on Monday, 28 June.

Look out for the Bright Blue Bags. They will be delivered in the two weeks before launch and are the sign that things are about to change.

From Doune at The Queens Arms – Update:

Thank you for all your patience with the number of builders vans parked outside the pub; things are picking up pace inside and it is all hands on deck. All the plumbing and wiring has been done, so we can now start painting and decorating inside, our kitchen and the bar are also being installed this month.  You will have seen the pub hub and new loos as you pass and you may also notice a new sign going up in the next week, so gradually things are starting to take shape. We look forward to showing you the results of all this hard work, the plan is to still open on 21st June, if we are able to open sooner for a village sneak preview we will, I will keep you posted. All the very best

From Cheryl at The Mitre Inn:

Finally the Marquee came into great use as the weather turned against us this week.

It has proved to be a cosy place to enjoy food and drink and only a couple of weeks until we can once again open the inside of the pub.

PLEASE NOTE it is essential to book a table for food and we would appreciate orders for food 24 hours ahead of your booking. We will continue to publish the menu on our website under the restaurant section. 

Please pre-book your table on [email protected] or 01963 220 271

Thank you once again

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.
