This registered charity was set up by a local parishioner in 1986 for the benefit of elderly and sick residents in Hemyock and district. It can make grants for medical treatment and care, and assist relatives/friends visiting and caring for people at home or in hospital. Grants for research, surgeries, homes and institutions caring for eligible persons can also be made. The local GPs, nurses, health visitors, BSG, churches and chapels may hear of people who are finding it difficult to visit or provide for relatives when they fall sick, and can advise people of the Trust and how it may be able to help.

If you work or attend college in Taunton you will know how frustrating it is that the last bus for Hemyock leaves at 5.15pm. Bus companies will only change a timetable when enough customers pressure them to alter it. If you are keen to support the provision of a later bus service from Taunton please register your interest by contacting Dominic Crocco on 681206.

'A tangerine and russet cascade of kaleidoscopic leaves creates a tapestry of autumn magic upon the emerald carpet of fading summer' writes J. Lindberg.  One of the great joys of living in the countryside is that this is something we may see every day as we move through the coming months. Yes, our summer may have appeared wet and miserable but we have many things to be grateful for not least the natural glories of the Blackdown Hills. By the time this appears we shall have had the chance to celebrate Harvest, to give thanks for all those who help supply our daily food remembering especially the work of our farming community and to remember that "All good gifts around us are sent from heav'n above."

Each year our Poppy People numbers drop by thousands, as many of our older collectors decide they can no longer assist us.  They have well and truly done their bit, and now we need to focus on new faces to come forward and lend a hand.  Can you give two hours plus of your time to collect between 27th October and 8th November?  If you can help in Hemyock, please contact David Bawler on 01823 680352
