I would like to thank the people of Pen for their generosity in giving to the village Poppy Collection in 2022. We raised a magnificent £396.16.

Some of you may have noticed some yellow bailer twine around the gate at the end of Monarch's Way before the woods leading to Coombe Street. We have been told that this is highly likely to have been put there as a "marker" for criminal activity. We have been advised to pass on this information to our neighbours. If anyone notices anything unusual please let us know. Suffice to say we have removed the bailer twine.

Wessex Water plan some mains sewer repair/replacement works on Bayford Hill just over the brow as you drop into Wincanton. Roughly adjacent to the new houses building site.
UK.one.network says road closure and advance notice yellow road closure signs are already out. No indication yet of diversion. I will update if I get more info.

Someone received a strange comment on their Comment Wall this morning, asking them to contact a josephmclaughlin via email.
The comment is spam. If you have received something similar, ignore it. It can't do you or your computer any harm if you don't respond.
Unfortunately I let the culprit into the website under a different name. They have been banned.

I understand Wessex Water may be back, yet again, for some repair woks in Coombe Street. Signage and one.network suggest a closure somewhere down near Pen Mill cutting off access from and to Zeals. Might last until Friday. If anyone has updated info as the week progresses, please let me know and I'll post on this website.

I understand that Wessex Water are back in Pen to fix a domestic water leak just below Queen's grove. Official info and one.network suggest a possible closure there until 25th November. Previous experience suggests it may not be that bad or that long but exercise caution.

I was told about this website (www.travelsomerset.co.uk) at the last Parish Council meeting. It sounded useful so I took a look. This is how they describe it:

Thank you all very much to those of you that have supported Eryl’s campaign for the village funding of a new ‘Royal’(?) Oak tree, to replace the original oak that sadly lost its existence due to Storm Eunice. It was a beautiful tree ~ clearly loved & admired by many. It stood so proudly in our lower field which – rather ironically – we had named Oak Tree field on our arrival to Penselwood.…Continue
