A young band from Hemyock has narrowly missed a place in the final of a battle of the bands competition.

Dicentra came third in heats for Somerset County Council's Battle of the Bands contest, held at the Somerset College of Arts and Technology, in Taunton, on January 6.

The competition offered one lucky band the chance to perform before Glastonbury Festival supremo Michael Eavis and spend a day in a recording studio.

Many in the Parish may have noticed that the church clock is not registering the
time. It has to be repaired! Although the clock is under the care of the Parish
Church this is part of the treasure, which belongs to the whole Parish. A
Honiton clock maker originally made the clock in 1748. From time to time it has
been repaired. In 2000 the winding mechanism was electrified. This was to
reduce the need of a person climbing up many steps to rewind two heavy
weights daily.
