Earlier start for waste and recycling collections

6am starts for crews as temperatures soar

Recycling and rubbish collections will start an hour earlier for the rest of this week in response to rising temperatures.

Somerset Waste Partnership (SWP) is asking residents to make sure their waste is ready for collection from 6am putting it out the night before if needed.

The early starts may…

Beacon Bonfire

I would like to thank all those who attended our Beacon Bonfire and especially those who donated to RABI (The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution). A cheque for £250 has been forwarded.  

To see so many people enjoying the special occasion for the Queen made the work on the bonfire worthwhile.

It was recognised that the village without public transport or other amenities was not the obvious place for refugees to be placed and that it would be better if there was more than one family at a time so that they had the company of people speaking the…
