Welcome back to the BUZZ Roundup – keeping you in touch with happenings in Keevil village come rain or shine… 

First, a big thank you to Lindsey Hermon and her team at the school for an informative session at the school on Tuesday night about the plans for the new school wall being developed, all following the recommendations of the Conservation Officer and the approved planning application. Well done to everyone involved, and we look forward to the progress of the project. And don’t forget, TONIGHT Thursday 26th January, the Friends of Keevil School (FOKS) are holding their AGM @7pm in school, followed straight after by the first Scarecrow Trail 2023 meeting. Everyone is welcome – the team would love some village input. Hope to see you there!
