Welcome back to the BUZZ Roundup – a quick update of anything that’s changed on our village website recently and a reminder of what’s coming up.
Well it’s turning into a pretty soggy weekend, with flooding out at both ends of Buzzley Bottom, and now Pyatts Corner and Main Street to the Stocks corner earlier today. Our flood wardens have been active and warning signs placed both ends of the Main Street water, but please do take care if you need to travel, and report any concerns you have to wardens John Tucker, Paul Lenaerts or Ian Simpson – find their details at the bottom of the Planning page.
Parish Council Matters
The Parish Clerk has posted the following Vacancy in the Office of Keevil Parish Council, which is also on the agenda for the next Parish Council Meeting on Monday 6th January 2020 7.30pm in the village hall.
Also, the Transport & Bus Working Group have provided additional information about the Link Scheme, as well as local taxis, and we’ve worked with Councillor Simon Newton to reorganise the Transport section on the website – we hope you find it useful.
- Last call for the Keevil New Year’s Eve party on Tuesday 31st December, come and dance the night away and welcome 2020 in true Keevil style!
- The Mobile Library will be back outside Rose & Crown Cottages on Monday 6th January at 10.35am
- If you need topping up with cake after all the festivities, the next Tea & Chat is Tuesday 7th January, 2.30pm in the village hall
- A real treat on Friday 17th January with the West Country Wassailing – a rare event on the Keevil Calendar, and another chance to catch the fabulous folk duo FLY YETI FLY !
- The Walking Group will be back out for a smashing circular ramble around Hallatrow and Paulton, including the Double Hills Memorial, on Wednesday 29th January – some gentle hills, footpaths, fields and a bit of quiet roadwork, no stiles. Lunch will be in the lovely quirky The Old Station Inn. Don’t miss this chance to stretch your legs and connect with a bit of Keevil history, contact Sarah Dow if you’re coming on the walk, or to the pub, or both!
Do you still need a Christmas tree? Local stables New House Farm on Ashton Common are now selling their remaining trees at half price, plus you’ll get a £5 voucher towards your next years tree. They are also supporting the JUSTHELPING real tree recycling service that raises funds for Dorothy House and other local charities. Book a collection here.
That’s all for now folks! Enjoy the Christmas festivities, and keep BUZZING!
