BEEWelcome back to the BUZZ Roundup – a quick update of anything that’s changed on our village website recently and a reminder of events coming up soon.

This time of year can be such fun, especially for those with young families, but it can also be extremely stressful for pets and livestock, not to mention the considerable number of thatched homes here in Keevil, so do be considerate to your neighbours when making any plans for fireworks. Dorset & Wiltshire Fire & Rescue have good safety precautions here, and general advice here for thatched cottages – it’s worth noting that most insurers of thatched properties place a moratorium on bonfires or other incendiaries within 100m of the property.

Bill & Ali-2
Christmas preparations get underway early in Keevil as Bill and Ali ready the chimney for Father Christmas!

The WI Elves were talking about the Advent Trail they are planning this year in the last Buzz, and it seems they’re not the only ones with Christmas on their mind! A reliable source sent in this photo of Bill and Ali who assure us they were simply checking their chimney was ready in good time for Santa Claus! Okayyy… more captions anyone? 🙂

Coming up…

  • Tea & Chat next Tuesday 5th November – cake and a cuppa in the village hall at 2.30pm
