Can you help?

The annual Village Hall Spring Clean 
will take place on Saturday 20th May from 10am.
Any offers of help would be gratefully received. 
This is our chance to clean those things which don't get cleaned on a weekly basis such as windows, walls, lights and chairs and for doing those little jobs like fixing door stoppers and touching up paintwork. If you can spare an hour to help we would be very grateful - just turn up. Help us to keep YOUR hall looking good. Tea/coffee and chocolate biscuits for volunteers!

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
