St Mary's Church For me, 'Silent Night' is perhaps the most evocative of all the Christmas Carols.  There are others of course, but they are mostly 'busy' carols, echoing the world as it runs helter skelter through the festive season. And those bright and busy carols are the ones that we will have heard a hundred times in shops and in the media in the run up to Christmas Day - along with the Christmas songs that today's children often confuse with carols. I like 'Silent Night' because it grounds us - it brings us back to the truth of what Christmas Day is all about.

Parish Council Free roaming dogs are thought to be to blame for the increasing amounts of faeces being found on the village sports complex, especially the football pitch. This represents a health hazard to players and referees are ordering that a clean sweep of the pitch be made before play can commence. Owners are asked to keep their dogs on leads whilst in the area and clean up the mess.

Parish Council For some time now residents of Longmead in Hemyock have warned that if an enhanced sewage system was not in place prior to the sales of new properties on the Churchill’s development, overspill into their pathways and gardens would increase with the resultant mess and health hazard.
