Request from Timberscombe Parish Council


A worrying increase in incidents of dog fouling was reported at the February Parish Council Meeting.
Treading in dog excrement is unpleasant and poses a health risk.

All dog owners are asked to clean up after their dog and help to make our village a pleasant place in which to walk.
It is an offence not to clear up after your dog. There are forms in the Post Office to report anyone seem committing this offence. It can also be reported at the West Somerset Council website at : https://www.westsomersetonline.gov.uk/Forms/Report-Dog-Fouling

VILLAGE AGENT NEWS

Have you made a New Year’s resolution?  Maybe to get fit or join a group or club?  In order to feel happy and mentally positive, we need to look after our bodies, because our emotions, mental state and bodies are all related to one another. This means feeding ourselves good food, taking an adequate amount of exercise, and engaging in other activities that make us feel happy and connected to the world.

Locally there are lots of opportunities to join in with activities, from keep fit classes at the Moorland Hall Wheddon Cross, to the Pastimes Club at Hanover Court, Dulverton, book groups, gardening groups, history groups, craft groups and the WI – Exmoor really does have something for everyone!  So why not set yourself a new goal for the new year and try something different?

The next meeting of the Exmoor Carers Group will be on Monday 30th January at the Rest & Be Thankful, Wheddon Cross, 12-2pm.  All welcome!

I can hardly believe it has been four years that I have been writing in this magazine as your Village Agent, but sadly this will be the last piece that I will be submitting as I will be handing over the reins to someone new very shortly.  Thank you for the friendships and many happy memories made along the way, I will still be actively working for the Community Council for Somerset but just in a different role so my working ties with Exmoor will still remain as strong as ever!

Are you sitting comfortably…?
A new campaign developed by Public Health Devon launched this week called ‘Are you sitting comfortably?’ – to highlight the risks of sedentary behaviour - plus simple things you can do to break it up and move more during your day.  We know that being active is great for our health but frequent movement during the day is just as important as regular physical activity.
Even if an individual is active, if they spend a long time being sedentary each day they are still at risk of harming their health – so it’s important to raise awareness of the need to reduce and interrupt sedentary behaviour alongside the benefits of being active.
To support the campaign, Public Health Devon have developed a video clip, infographic and ‘sitting calculator’.  As most people are probably unaware of how sedentary they are, these digital tools are designed to raise awareness, trigger realisation and offer ideas for small changes that can make a difference.
Take a look at https://new.devon.gov.uk/adultsocialcareandhealth/health-and-wellbeing/are-you-sitting-comfortably/sitting-calculator/

The Exmoor Carers Group will next be meeting on Monday 28th November (12 -2pm)  at the White Horse, Exford, please contact me if you are thinking of coming along.
Please contact me by telephone or e-mail, or a home visit can be arranged.  All advice is free and completely confidential.

Dear Parents, Relatives, Teachers and Friends,

Thank you so much to all of you who contributed in some way to the Sponsored Walk and Soup Lunch last Sunday.

              £879.42 made on the sponsorship!

The winner of the Sponsorship champion Trophy was

raising a very impressive £173!

I would like to say a huge WELL DONE to all the children who took part in this competition and to all the parents and carers for helping them.
