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!

Claire's Kitchen News


Dear All - I am delighted to announce that my ready meals will be going into The Villagers Stores in Wootton Courtenay on Saturday 13th May. Becky and I  will be in store between 10am and 11am giving out free tasters. Ready meals will be available for purchase from the freezer daily. Look forward to seeing you there.

Claire from Claires Kitchen and the Amazing Fly Monkeys have started a new venture and that is ‘Wild Exmoor’ - untamed cuisine on location throughout Exmoor. We are making a series of programmes/films of a journey across Exmoor with myself cooking in a whole variety of different locations all outdoors in the wild…, some iconic landmarks, some scenic locations, some completely wild etc. but essentially all promoting Exmoor, food, the location/venue and of course ourselves. We are being supported and backed by the ENP and Visit Exmoor.
To give you an idea of what we are doing I have attached links to two sample videos. These are short samples to music, but the actual videos are more in the way of a mini programme with dialog. We have a website under construction. Hope you enjoy them.

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
