Combwich Village Market

Don’t forget this Saturday 10am to 12 noon. Come and treat yourself to a delicious homemade cake or perhaps some tasty scotch eggs or homemade pie together with a good selection of local crafts or just come along and enjoy a bacon roll and cup of tea.

Always sure of a warm welcome.

A message from your Village Agent

Hello everyone.    By the time you read this hopefully spring will be just around the corner and we will be beginning to enjoy daffodils and other flowers that make this time of year so joyful.

Once again I urge you to be aware of scams that seem to target people.   At the present time there is one purporting to be from HM Tax office, telling people that there is a mistake in their on line declaration.    Please if in any doubt about any communication you receive check it out first; the same goes for telephone calls supposedly from your bank, whatever you do do not agree to transfer money – unless of course you know the caller personally.

Unfortunately I am going to be out of action for the next two/three months [March/April/May].     However I am not abandoning you, if you do need help that a Village Agent can supply please get in touch with CCS (Community Council for  Somerset ) on 01823 331222  or contact .  Jinny is our line manager and she will make sure that you receive the help you need.     In the meantime take care of each other and remember there is no charge for a Village Agent’s help and the service is absolutely confidential.   I look forward to joining you all for coffee and a chat when my indisposition has given way to good health again.

Yvonne Bulman (Village Agent)

Combwich Village Market

A timely reminder that the Combwich Village Market is tomorrow, 14th February, at Otterhampton Village Hall from 10am to 12 noon.

As always the market offers a range of fresh produce and craft gifts plus of course freshly cooked bacon rolls, a cuppa, and a chance to catch up with friends. So do come and join us.

We look forward to seeing you,

Lyn Palmer and Elizabeth Marriott
