Fix Fest
12 Mar 2017

Yesterday's fixfest was well attended with over 40 fixes provided by highly skilled volunteer fixers. The organisers hope to do something similar again in the autumn.

There are many reasons why those who may wish to vote may not be able to do so in person (infirmity, on holiday, work commitments etc) in which case they can vote by post.

This building work (you can't miss it if you are travelling on the A379) is to build a car park for the new community park (SANGS). I thought to put this message on here given as the following remark was overheard in Sainsbury's this morning "Do you know what that building work is all about up by St. Mary's cottages, right by the main road?" "Yes, it's another lot of houses being built". ...
