Twinned with Javené, (Brittany) France

WELCOME and Bienvenue to my website.

This site is designed to serve and promote the communities comprising South Petherton, Over Stratton, Compton Durville and all the small hamlets amongst and between these larger groups of houses. I run it as a private individual now - it has nothing to do with the Parish Council who now run their own site. Your comments about the current content of this site are welcome. If there’s anything you think should be included; if you have any events or plans that you or your group want to publicise or even a photograph - anything of local interest - just email it to me.   (nb new email address)

Thanks for your support    Tony Charman (Webmaster)

 Family Arts and Crafts Charity Market in The Blake Hall in South Petherton.

Saturday 28th January 2017

We are raising money for our fantastic South Petherton C of E Infants school and local nursery ‘Sunshine’.

All the children in the school and nursery have been asked to design a picture about "love" This can be their best friend, family member, pet, favourite toy or anything they wish. These will be displayed on the day in a gallery style to show off the children’s work .Guests of the event will then vote for their favourites. There will be 3 winners, 1 from each age category and their picture will be displayed in N & D News windows until Valentines Day. They will also win an Art Set to help encourage their Artistic flare.

There will be 15+ craft stalls to browse and possibly purchase that unique something for that unique someone in your life for Valentines..

You can also book your children in to our craft section so they can decorate their own polystyrene heart which they can take home and keep or give to someone they love. Tickets are available in advance for just £2.50 per child per 20 minute craft session.

We have a facebook page with more information and tickets for the craft sessions can be bought via contacting us either on Facebook or via email or or by calling 07470307606.

Early notice of website closure.

I have run this website for a number of years, initially paid for by the Parish Council and then (after they decided they wanted to run ‘their own’) at my own expense. I am no longer prepared to fund a public service for free and so, when the web name and hosting fees become due in September 2017 they will not be renewed and this site will close. However, If there is anyone who would like to take the site over OR if there is a local business that would like to sponsor the site and gain some good publicity, then please contact me. This site gets a lot of visits and so could prove a good investment.. All discussions in confidence.
