Do you have a New Year’s Resolution to get more active?  Walking is a great way to get fit, explore what’s on your doorstep and make new friends whilst enjoying the beautiful South Somerset countryside. Our Health Walks are led by trained Health Walk Leaders and are a great way of getting exercise and meeting people. From beginners to challenging walks there are walks suitable for everyone. So why not take a health walk and enjoy the countryside? You could make new friends, relieve stress and benefit your health. Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier. It's an underrated form of exercise but walking is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to be more active.  Please click on the link to see our South Somerset Health Walks below:


Since we started up the Ring a Ride service in September 2018, volunteers have responded to, and been able to give lifts 20 times, for reasons ranging from appointments for hospital, doctors, opticians, dentists, to shopping and a student’s award ceremony. A total of six different people have used the service so far and on no occasion have we had to turn anyone down. So a big thank you everyone who has provided lifts. I think we can safely say that it has got off to a smooth start and is proving to be a worthwhile asset to the village.  If anyone is interested in becoming a volunteer driver or needs a lift, please contact Pat McGarry on 07773 101520.
