Avian Flu

While out walking my black and white pair this morning I “spotted” this sign….

I have a boat in Brixham and this year it’s been very noticeable just how many dead seagulls there are. I don’t remember really seeing any in previous years.

Just thought I ought to let people know.

Wessex Water Works

From : David Pynn

There is a leak in the sewer between Hankerton Bridge Pumping Station (PS) and Charlton.
While camera investigations and subsequent repairs are carried out, tankers are transferring sewage from the PS to Noah’s Ark, Charlton. This may last a while.

Residents driving may meet tankers in Vicarage Lane at any time of day or night. Damage to verges is inevitable.

Windfalls & Wildings

Windfalls & Wildings
Paul Derby & Friends

Follow the apple’s journey from Asia to England in music and song!
Saturday 15 October @ 7pm – Rausing Building

Tickets avail now – see links below – or from Museum

We are delighted to bring you this live music show, postponed from 2020 and devised and performed by Paul Derby and Friends.  A musical journey from the Heavenly Mountains to the Pewsey Vale.

From its origins in the wild mountain fruit forests of central Asia, along the silk routes to mainland Europe, we trace the apple’s journey to England.

This is a story of mixed fortunes, leading to celebration and grass roots revival.

The band brings you a blend of spoken word, tunes and original songs… with plenty of opportunities to join in!
