If you would like to help maintain the field, dont wait for a Working Party - you can pop up at any time. Contact Geoff if you are not sure what is best to tackle.
Village Picnic 2011 - a select few gathered for a picnic on Men's Finals Day, Murray had been knocked out so no nerves there; the weather was excellent, for a change. Thanks to the guys who cut a section of the field around the bench.
Spring 2009 Working Party Click here to see photos. The display of primroses, oxlips, and violets is wonderful - see if you can spot any other wild flowers.
In 2007, an agreement was signed with Somerset County Council that the village would take over the maintenance of a field in The Combe. The field contains a number of rare wild plants, and the bank is covered in primroses in the spring. A water supply was provided, and new gates fitted, to allow planned grazing and cutting. Villagers got together to clear brambles and scrub which had become overgrown because the field had not been grazed for some time.
