Large white chicken with hint of brown, found today (Saturday 21st Feb) at around midday, wandering free at the bottom of Chapel Lane. Have tried various chicken owners in the vicinity, but not yet found the owner. Has anyone lost one?
She is happily being fed and watered in our spare coop - but please call me to come and collect! Nicky Backus 01747 841471
The wood from the lime trees at the back of the church has now been logged up and is for sale. This money will go towards the costs of pollarding the trees.

It's called 'old age' but I do need help getting up in the morning and getting to bed at night, I do have two ladies who come in but would like a third as a reserve. There is no medical care required or lifting and I do pay for time. If anyone is interested please contact me Gill Matthews on 840412Continue

Hello. First time poster to the Pen Selwood website. Not sure if this is the right location for a query like this, but here we go.I have an O2 phone which has a good signal most of the time, but then drops out to nothing intermittently. It's not the phone, and I suspect it's another provider's mast nearby crushing the signal.Anyone have any advice on the best mobile provider for the village? We're up near the church.Andrew WarrenContinue
