Putman’s View from 


All aboard for 
consultation 
on train plans 


A CONSULTATION has been launched 
by South Western Railway to improve 
the line between Exeter and London 
Waterloo, with extra services available 
for Yeovil Junction. But Crewkerne is 
set to miss out, writes Peter Hodges. 

Last month, SWR announced that fol¬ 
lowing its takeover of the franchise 
from South West Trains, it would be 
running a consultation period with pro¬ 
posed changes to the timetable. 

The changes that jumped out imme¬ 
diately were an early-morning com¬ 
muter train starting at Yeovil Junction, 
in Stoford, at 7.18am and arriving in Ex¬ 
eter at 8.43am. This early service, how¬ 
ever, misses out Crewkerne. 

The new consultation has thrown up 
some controversy with the absence of 
trains stopping at Clapham Junction, a 
major interchange for those travelling 
to Gatwick Airport and the outskirts of 
London. If the consultation comes into 
place, passengers would need to change 
trains in order to reach Clapham. 

Regarding the omission of Clapham 
Junction, the UK’s busiest railway sta¬ 
tion in terms of the number of trains 
passing through daily, a spokesman for 
SWR said: “Before South Western Rail¬ 
way took over the franchise, we con¬ 
tacted key stakeholders across the 
route to find out what they wanted in 
improvements for the December 2018 
timetable, and these proposals are the 
results of that feedback. 

“Included in the things stakeholders 
in the South Somerset area wanted 
were a faster and extended train ser¬ 
vice and these are reflected in the pro¬ 
posals. 

“We published the timetable consul¬ 


tation for the December 2018 services 
for customers to feed back their 
comments on what we have sugge¬ 
sted in order to deliver on our capac¬ 
ity and journey-time improvement 
plans. 

“All of the comments and feedback 
will be taken into account when devel¬ 
oping the final proposal for submission 
to the Department for Transport and 
Network Rail in 2018.” 

The Friends of Crewkerne Station 
have expressed their concerns and 
have developed their own consultation 
paper to help them give their feedback 
on the consultation. 

The Friends’ Tony Reese said: “Be¬ 
cause of the single track on most of our 
line, it is difficult to fit in an extra ser¬ 
vice towards Exeter. 

“The 7.18am from Yeovil Junction 
helps, although it is very slow and runs 
only a few minutes behind the existing 
early train. 

“But something in this gap is better 
than nothing, which is why we would 
like it to stop at Crewkerne. 

“The majority of the changes in the 
proposal are very good and we welcome 
South Western Railway’s commitment 
to improving our train services within 
the constraints of the single track and 
the existing signalling. 

“We are trying very hard to influence 
the decision-makers to upgrade the in¬ 
frastructure to allow more, better and 
longer trains.” 

There is still time for people to give 
their views on SWR’s proposals. 

The consultation runs until Decem¬ 
ber 22. Details about the plans and how 
to give feedback are at southwestern 
railway.com/timetableconsultation 



Crowdfunding success 
leaves peer support 
network ‘over the moon’ 

A SUCCESSFUL crowdfunding campaign has se¬ 
cured a full set of services by The Project, based 
in Chard and Axminster, for another year. 

The Project's #Support4September campaign 
has been described as a huge success, raising 
just over the £15,000 target. 

The money was needed to close a funding 
shortfall which had put some of The Project's 
peer support groups, for young people with 
mental-health problems, at risk of closure. 

Reaching the target has ensured that The Pro¬ 
ject can continue all of its services for another 
year. The achievement was made possible 
through the kindness and generosity of The Pro¬ 
ject's many supporters. 

The Project leaders are very grateful in partic¬ 
ular to the local community groups and organi¬ 
sations which have pledged donations over the 
past month: Chardstock Street Fayre, Honiton 
Lions Club, Axminster Freemasons, Axpedition, 
the Heroes & Villains Disco and Hawkchurch Vil¬ 
lage Fete. 

Crowdfunder added offline donations to the 
campaign's total - which meant The Project was 
eligible to receive £7,500 in match-funding from 
the Santander Changemaker Fund. 

The Project's founder, Debbie Humberstone, 
said: "Once again we are hugely grateful to so 
many people who helped to make this campaign 
a success. 

"We had no idea whether crowdfunding would 
work, so we're over the moon that we reached 
our target. Because so many people got behind 
our campaign, Santander Changemaker Fund 
agree to match all our donations, and this made 
a huge difference to us achieving our goal. It just 
shows how many people value and support what 
we are doing. 

"The most important thing is that we can now 
continue all our services for young people, many 
of whom receive no other help to overcome the 
challenges they face."

TV documentary puts spotlight on credit unions 


NOT-for-profit credit union Westcountry Sav¬ 
ings and Loans has called for more awareness 
of ethical finance following the premiere of a 
new BBC documentary. 

‘A Matter of Life and Debt’ explores the im¬ 
portant and life changing work carried out by 
credit unions up and down the country. 

The documentary series marks the first time 
that credit unions and the work that they do 
have been given a dedicated mainstream se¬ 
ries. 

The continuing broadcast coincided with In¬ 
ternational Credit Union Day on October 19th, 
which is an opportunity to raise awareness for 
the ever growing not for profit financial sector 
all over the world. 


Jackie Simpson, general manager of West- 
country Savings and Loans remarks that since 
the first episode aired on October 9th, member¬ 
ship applications have increased overnight, 
signposted by the program. 

Ms Simpson said: “For much of the public, 
this documentary will be the first time that 
they discover credit unions, and how they are 
very different from banks and pay day loan 
companies. This represents a significant mo¬ 
ment in time for credit unions all over the 
country. 

“We have been working to improve the lives 
of Westcountry citizens over the past 13 years, 
and as a not-for-profit, our motivation is to 
serve communities and not shareholders”.

PROTECTION 


As of September 2016, less than two per cent 
of the UK public use credit unions, and Ms 
Simpson added that more awareness of alterna¬ 
tive finance is key to empower individuals with 
increased support and options: “Credit unions 
have a history of giving people access to fair fi¬ 
nance. 

“For many financially excluded people, their 
options are limited, and are often forced to ap¬ 
proach pay day lenders to be able to pay for ne¬ 
cessities such as school uniforms or car 
repairs. 

“Often it is credit unions who work with ex¬ 
cluded individuals and debt management char¬ 
ities to provide solutions to get people back on 
their feet and improve their credit rating - 
which is essential to register for basic services 


such as mobile phone contracts or utility bills. 

“This documentary helps support the credit 
union movement, and we warmly welcome the 
exposure”. 

Westcountry Savings and Loans (formerly 
Somerset Savings and Loans) has more than 
2,200 members. Members’ savings total £2.2m 
of which £1.4m is out on loan in Devon and 
Somerset. 

The credit union recently expanded to serve 
Devon as well as Somerset. 

The organisation has a small number of staff, 
with the majority of expertise provided by vol¬ 
unteer directors and board members. The or¬ 
ganisation works together with debt manage¬ 
ment charities and local services such as Step 
Change. 


Ottery man pleads guilty to 
causing suffering to donkeys 


RAYMOND Grigg of Longdogs Lane in Ottery 
St Mary has pleaded guilty to causing unneces¬ 
sary suffering to three donkeys and failing to 
meet the needs of five donkeys when he ap¬ 
peared at Exeter Magistrates’ Court recently, 
following a prosecution by the RSPCA. 

The donkeys were found to have suffered 
from prolonged neglect when they were left 
with chronically overgrown hooves. 

Inspector Marie Griffiths said: “Equines re¬ 
quire a lot of specialist care and it is important 
to remember that people who have animals 
have a responsibility to look after them prop¬ 
erly, and ensure they receive the proper veteri-

nary treatment and care when they need it.” 

Magistrates also ordered Grigg to carry out 80 
hours of unpaid work and pay £385 in costs, a 
£300 fine and a £85 victim surcharge. 

Hannah Bryer, head of welfare at The Donkey 
Sanctuary, said: “Owning donkeys can be a 
hugely rewarding experience and a wonderful 
privilege, however they require caring and 
compassionate management to ensure they 
lead healthy and enriched lives. 

“We would encourage anyone who currently 
owns or is thinking about acquiring donkeys, 
to seek advice on how to best meet their welfare 
needs before taking on the commitment. 

“Sadly when our donkey welfare adviser first 
saw the five donkeys in this case it was obvious 
that they were in need of immediate veterinary 
care. 

“Some had significantly overgrown hooves, 
whilst another had suffered a wound to its leg 
and shoulder which was affecting its ability to 
walk. 

“Following specialist veterinary treatment 
and investigative tests, the condition of two of 
the donkeys was such that sadly euthanasia 
was considered the most humane treatment op¬ 
tion. 

“Happily with the support of our vets, farriers 
and farm staff, the other three donkeys have 
made a good recovery and are living among 
other donkeys at one of our sanctuaries. 

“We are grateful to the combined efforts of the 
RSPCA, Devon and Cornwall Police and St 
David’s Vets in investigating this case and we 
are happy to provide a safe and secure future 
for the three donkeys now in our care.”

Copter heroine is 
walking on air for 
a quiet Christmas 


HELICOPTER flight commander Lt Amy 
Gilmore is looking forward to returning to 
the UK after swapping her quiet village home 
life for the more dramatic landscape of flying 
rescue missions over hurricane-devastated 
Caribbean islands. 

Lt Gilmore’s Royal Navy Wildcat heli¬ 
copter left RNAS Yeovilton in May this year. 

She and her team of engineers and opera¬ 
tors then based themselves on ships RFA 
Wave Knight and RFA Mounts Bay, close to 
British overseas territories in the Caribbean 
in anticipation of the annual hurricane sea¬ 
son. 

She has been at the front of the UK’s rescue 
efforts since devastating hurricanes Irma, 
Katya and Jose struck the area in early 
September, helping British dependencies 
with their rescue efforts. 

Lt Gilmore said: “With two of the most 
powerful recorded hurricanes hitting the is¬ 
lands in short order, it has been a terrible 
time for all the people out here. 

“While this has been the most demanding 
flying I have ever conducted, it has also been 
the most rewarding. 

“We have been able to make a real differ¬ 
ence in helping the local people recover from 
the devastation these hurricanes have 
caused. 

“I’ve been involved in disaster relief previ¬ 
ously but nothing I’ve seen before compares 
to this. 

“The British Virgin Islands have been 
particularly hard hit, and I hope they are 


able to get themselves back on their feet 
soon.” 

Manufactured in Yeovil, her Wildcat heli¬ 
copter has been invaluable in conducting ini¬ 
tial damage assessments, search-and-rescue 
missions, opening up local airports and lift¬ 
ing tonnes of much-needed food and water 
into isolated parts of the islands. 

More powerful than its Lynx predecessor, 
the Wildcat is also very nimble and is able to 
squeeze into areas which larger aircraft 
would not be able to get to. 

Lt Gilmore said: “With more than 90 flying 
hours in September this has made a phenom¬ 
enal contribution to the wide range of rescue 
work we have been able to provide.” 

One spectacular rescue mission saw Lt 
Gilmore and her team safely winch a mother 
and two children from the hull of a capsized 
merchant vessel. 

Lt Cdr Steve Gilmore - Lt Gilmore’s hus¬ 
band who also serves in the Royal Navy - 
said: “I’m truly astounded, inspired and a lit¬ 
tle bit jealous of all that Amy and her team 
have achieved recently. 

“I’m lucky to have the inside story on their 
heroic work and throughout she has been a 
driving force in ensuring they did all they 
could to help the victims of the hurricanes. I 
couldn’t be more proud.” 

As the area stabilises, Lt Gilmore will re¬ 
turn home after her busy seven months 
away. 

“I’m looking forward to getting back to the 
village in time for Christmas,” she said.

County’s care y 
providers among 
best in country 


NEARLY 90 per cent of Somerset care 
providers are rated good or outstanding, 
with none inadequate. 

When the Care Quality Commission (CQC) 
published its annual State of Care report, 
Somerset boasted a care sector in which 87 
per cent of providers are rated good or out¬ 
standing under the care watchdog’s new in¬ 
spection regime. 

This puts Somerset comfortably ahead of 
regional and national averages, with the 
quality of care rising steadily despite in¬ 
creasing demands and big pressures on bud¬ 
gets. 

In the last 12 months the proportion of 
providers rated good or outstanding in Som¬ 
erset has risen from 79 per cent to the cur¬ 
rent 87 per cent. 

And, for the first time, no provider is rated 
inadequate. 

The impressive picture is the result of 
hard work from care providers and their 
staff, with support from Somerset County 
Council. 

The council works closely with providers, 
the Somerset Registered Care Provider Asso¬ 
ciation and the CQC to monitor performance 
and drive up standards, providing challenge 
and support where needed. 

A care-home support team is available to 
advise, guide and share best practice. 

In August, around 200 providers attended 
a provider development day at County Hall 
in Taunton. The event focused on improving 
quality. 

In December, a similar event will bring 


providers together to discuss how to achieve 
a rating of outstanding. 

Cllr David Huxtable, cabinet member for 
adult social care at Somerset County Coun¬ 
cil, said: “In very challenging times for the 
sector, the standard of care in this county is 
rising and that is a real achievement. 

“It is down to the hard work and expertise 
of the people who work in the sector, and we 
are proud to be playing our part. 

“Our providers are always looking for new 
staff. 

“Careers in care offer a chance to make a 
real difference to people’s lives. 

“If you think it might be for you then I’d 
urge you to find out more about the Proud to 
Care South West initiative that we are back¬ 
ing. 

“Our finances are under enormous pres¬ 
sures. And this shows that it’s about spend¬ 
ing what money you have wisely, and 
making sure you do everything you can to 
make the most impact.” 

There are 355 care providers in Somerset: 
225 residential care homes, 60 nursing homes 
and 70 home-care providers. 

Figures from the beginning of October 
show that: 

• 89 per cent of residential care homes were 
good or outstanding, against 82 per cent na¬ 
tionally; 

• 80 per cent of nursing homes were good or 
outstanding, against 70 per cent nationally; 

• 92 per cent of home-care providers - domi¬ 
ciliary care - were good or outstanding, 
against 84 per cent nationally. 


Apprentice association’s 
£31,055 boost for charity 


THE Yeovil-based Agusta 
Westland Apprentice & 
Student Association has 
received 31,055 massive 
thank-yous from the School 
in a Bag charity for its 
support over the past 12 
months. 

During a special dinner at 
its annual awards night, the 
group - more commonly 
known as AWASA - pre¬ 
sented the charity, based at 
Chilthorne Domer near 
Yeovil, with a cheque for 
£31,055 as a result of its 
fundraising. 

And the charity was 
bowled over by the news that 
AWASA, which is made up 
of staff at the now-named 
Leonardo Helicopters in 
Yeovil, has decided to con¬ 
tinue its support of SIAB for 
a second year. 

Luke Simon, chief execu¬ 
tive of SIAB, said: “We were 
delighted to have been in¬ 
vited to the AWASA awards 
ceremony and were blown 
away when we were 
presented with the truly 
awesome amount of £31,055. 

“Thank you to the whole 
AWASA committee who 
held event after event to 
raise money for us and we 
feel honoured that we will be

It was announced that 
AWASA wants to raise 
money to build a school in 
Nepal in conjunction with 
SIAB, the Mondo Challenge 
Foundation and the 
Helambu Education and 
Livelihood Partnership. 

School in a Bag was 
launched as part of the Piers 
Simon Appeal which was 
formed not long after the 
Asian tsunami of Boxing 
Day 2004 which resulted in 
the death of tens of thou¬ 
sands of people including 
former Yeovil College stu¬ 
dent Piers Simon. 

The initiative sees the 


SIAB team deliver rucksacks 
full of stationery, learning 
resources and eating uten¬ 
sils to poor, vulnerable and 
disaster-affected children 
around the globe. 

Luke was joined at the 
awards night at the West- 
lands Yeovil conference and 
leisure complex by SIAB col¬ 
leagues Charlotte Pike, Zoe 
Fox and Lis Foy. 

AWASA held lots of 
fundraising events over the 
year to amass such a fantas¬ 
tic total to present to the 
charity including bucket col¬ 
lections, sponsored walks, a 
beer and cider festival and 
other money-spinning activ¬ 
ities.

ILE Youth & Community Ce¬

Ploughing the perfect furrow 



THE Yeovil Ploughing Match Society was 
delighted with the turnout for its 75th an¬ 
niversary fixture held at Stone Farm in 
the town’s Stone Lane. 

Various classes were held during the 
day, with traditional ploughing methods 
and techniques in evidence with hand¬ 
held machines, plus a variety of tractors 
and the impressive teams of shire horses. 

A good-sized crowd came to watch the 
competitors try to plough the perfect fur¬ 
row to impress the judges. 

The first ploughing match held by the 
society was initially organised by the 
town’s Young Farmers’ Club in 1942 and 
held at Pye Corner Farm in Odcombe.

CHARD 


www.viewnews.co.uk 


Lifesaving device for 
humans is installed 
at animal sanctuary 


FERNE Animal Sanctuary near Chard now 
has a new HeartSafe automated external de¬ 
fibrillator on site thanks to a grant from the 
Big Lottery Fund. 

The unit, which is designed for simplicity 
of use to untrained members of the public, 
contains a portable electronic device that can 
be used to save the lives of those in cardiac 
arrest by restarting their heart if it stops. 

The defibrillator will be 
kept in a locked cabinet at 
the side of Feme’s main of¬ 
fice block, making it easy to 
access in case of an emer¬ 
gency either onsite or in the 
wider community. 

Emergency callers to 999 
will be given the access code 
and directed to the unit 
should it be required. 

Mary Crompton, recep¬ 
tion team manager at Feme, 
said: “I feel that an onsite 
defibrillator is a very positive emergency 
first-aid addition to the sanctuary, given our 
rural location. 

“However, as we are a charity reliant upon 
donations and sponsorship, we needed to se¬ 
cure funding to install this. To our delight, 
we were successful in our application to the 
Big Lottery Fund and received full funding, 
including electrical installation costs. 

“I feel that providing first-aid equipment 
that really can save a life will be of great ben¬ 


efit to our local community as well as our 
own staff and visitors.” 

Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of 
premature death but with immediate treat¬ 
ment many lives can be saved. 

In Europe about one in 1,000 of the popula¬ 
tion suffers cardiac arrest each year, so in 
the UK there are likely to be approximately 
60,000 cases annually. 

Defibrillators are devices 
that give a high-energy 
electric shock to the heart 
through the chest wall to 
someone who is in cardiac 
arrest. This process is an 
essential life-saving step as 
getting a defibrillator to 
someone within four to five 
minutes gives them a 70% 
chance of survival. For 
every minute after that, it 
decreases by 10%. 
Automated external de¬ 
fibrillators are safe and will not allow a 
shock to be given unless the heart’s rhythm 
requires it. They are designed to be stored for 
long periods of time without use and require 
very little routine maintenance. 

Feme Animal Sanctuary is a registered 
charity and relies on the support of the pub¬ 
lic and dedicated volunteers to continue its 
vital work. It has been caring for unwanted 
and abandoned animals for more than 75 
years. 




Harriers swoop for top spot 
in can collecting challenge 


CHILDREN from Redstart 
Primary School in Chard 
have risen to the challenge 
of climate change once 
again by taking part in 
their fourth annual collec¬ 
tion of tin cans. 

Classes competed agai¬ 
nst each other to collect as 
many food and drinks cans 
as possible over a four- 
week period. 

The cans were weighed 
and collected by EMR, of 
Beeching Close, Chard, 
which supports the annual 
event. Then the cans were 
recycled and the money 
earned donated to Friends 


of Redstart School who use 
it for deserving purposes. 

This year’s winners 
were Harriers of Year 3. 

They beat all the other 
classes and received a 
prize and certificate and 
are holders of the trophy 
for the next year. 

The classes managed to 
bring in 1,500kg of cans 
and the school received 
more than £550 for the ma¬ 
terials. 

Tim Eggins, of Sustain¬ 
able Chard, who helped or¬ 
ganise the event, said: 
“This competition shows 
once again how much can 


be achieved when people 
work together. 

“The children have 
demonstrated teamwork 
and learned about caring 
for the environment. We 
hope to collect even more 
next year. 

“It would be fantastic to 
see other schools in the 
area begin this simple 
green way to generate rev¬ 
enue for themselves.” 

Redstart School has 
earned more than £2,000 
over the past four years - 
saving energy and reduc¬ 
ing carbon dioxide by 
reusing waste materials.

Pupils’ ‘humbling’ trip to food bank 



CHARD School held 
an enjoyable harvest 
festival assembly - 
and then pupils 
made a “humbling” 
visit to a food bank. 

Food donations 
were placed at the 
front of the chapel at 
the beginning of the 
service and then 
pupils performed 
music and read 
poems with a har¬ 
vest theme to a de¬ 
lighted audience of 
parents and family 
members. 

The food dona¬ 
tions were later 
taken by Year 6 
pupils to the Lord’s 
Larder at the Fore¬ 
front Centre. 

The Lord’s Larder 
provides emergency 
food supplies to 
those in need. 


While the children 
were at the food 
bank, one of the vol¬ 
unteers explained to 
them how the Lord’s 
Larder works. 

The Chard School 


pupils helped pack a 
food bag for a family 
of four before learn¬ 
ing how the food is 
stored, organised 
and then dis¬ 
tributed. 


A spokesman for 
the school said: “It 
was a humbling 
visit. 

“The children 
were a credit to the 
school. 


“They gained a 
true appreciation of 
the fantastic support 
that the centre gives 
to members of 
the local commu¬ 
nity.”

Supporting the bereaved 
during the Christmas season 


COPING with Christ¬ 
mas is a free event on 
Wednesday November 
15th at 6pm in Hen- 
hayes Centre, Crewk- 
erne, and is open to 
anyone who is suffering 
a loss or a bereavement. 

Coping with a bereave¬ 
ment or loss is never 
easy at any time of the 
year but grieving for a 
loved one at Christmas 
time can intensify those 
feelings. 

As others around you 
plan their festive cele¬ 
brations and joyful 
cards arrive in the post, 
many find that shop¬ 
ping for one less present 
echoes the inner feeling 
of loneliness and sense 
of loss. You may experi¬ 
ence feelings of guilt if 
you enjoy social occa¬ 
sions or decline invita¬ 
tions as you do not want 
to attend events alone. 

Stoodley & Son, inde¬ 
pendent funeral direc¬ 
tors of Crewkerne have 


for the past four years 
provided local accessi¬ 
ble bereavement sup¬ 
port through ‘Grief 
Journey South Somer¬ 
set’. Whilst running 
these bereavement 
groups, they under¬ 
stood the need for extra 
reassurance at this time 
of the year. The evening 


will be lead by a team of 
trained facilitators and 
will offer guidance and 
tips to help you through 
the festive season. Light 
refreshments will be 
provided. For more in¬

ILMINSTER 


www.viewnews.co.uk 


School staff are chosen 
for top support roles 



THE headteacher and staff at Ne- 
roche Primary School, Broadway 
near Ilminster, have been selected 
for several top roles supporting 
schools in challenging circum¬ 
stances and training new teachers. 

Connel Boyle is one of 75 head¬ 
teachers nationally to be appointed 
to the role of national leader of edu¬ 
cation in the latest recruitment 
round. 

National leaders of education 
along with staff in their school - ap¬ 
pointed national support schools - 
use their knowledge and experience 
to provide additional leadership ca¬ 
pability in other schools in need of 
support. 

The type of support provided is 
flexible and tailored to meet the 
needs of each school’s improvement 
strategy. 

National leaders of education also 
have responsibility for developing 
the next generation of NLEs and na¬ 
tional support schools. 

Alison Collins, Neroche’s deputy 
headteacher, and Claire Bowditch, 
Early Years leader, have both been 
appointed specialist leaders in edu¬ 
cation, following an intensive re¬ 
cruitment programme. 

Mrs Collins and Mrs Bowditch 
have been actively supporting col¬ 
leagues in other schools as well as 
constantly improving standards and 
practice at Neroche. 

Mr Boyle said: “Neroche Primary 


School is honoured to have received 
national recognition for our support 
given to other schools in our efforts 
to improve standards for Somerset 
children. 

“In the last 12 months, our school 
has supported nine other primary 
schools. 

“The staff of Neroche Primary 
School are totally committed to shar¬ 
ing our school’s outstanding prac¬ 
tices to benefit other schools and 
children in Somerset and we look 
forward to continuing this collabora¬ 
tive approach further as a designated 
national support school.” 

The National College for Teaching 
& Leadership has responsibility for 
the appointment of NLEs and the 
quality of the NLE programme. 

Roger Pope, college chairman, 
said: “I’d like to congratulate Connel 
Boyle and Neroche Primary School 
on their appointments. They should

Primary 
School's

and

be very proud of this achievement. 

“National leaders of education are 
at the heart of school improvement. 

“They’re supporting other schools 
and developing the next generation 
of leaders. At NCTL, we want to do 
all we can to support their work. “ 

Neroche school is also celebrating 
the appointment of its chairman of 
governors, David Pugh, as a national 
leader of governance. 

Mr Pugh has many years’ experi¬ 
ence both as a school governor and 
as a chairman of governors, having 
previously been a headteacher and 
an Ofsted inspector. 

Neroche’s governing body has sup¬ 
ported other local schools and the 
success of this support has now also 
gained national recognition. 

Mr Pugh said: “We are so grateful 
and humbled that the work of our 
governors and teachers has received 
such national recognition.”

Enjoy supper 
too as Players 
welcome you 
to the cabaret 



■ THE group of staff and volunteers attempting the world record; below, Cllr Val Keitch, mayor of llminster, and Andrew Fox, town crier, both ate 
a cream tea for the attempt 

Tea for many as store bids 
for Guinness World Record 


AN award-winning local amateur dramatic 
society will once again be entertaining 
audiences with a theatre/supper format 
next month. 

Barrington Players are extending their 
Welcome To The Cabaret event and are 
inviting locals to enjoy another of their 
highly successful variety shows, being held 
on Saturday November 25 at Barrington 
Village Hall. 

There will be performances from many 
familiar faces, both seniors and juniors, 
together with some new ones, with a 
mixture of music, comedy and sketches. 

From the wider community there will also 
be an appearance from the Somer Singers. 

As with previous variety-style events, it 
will include a two-course supper, served in a 
cabaret-style setting. 

You can book a table of up to eight or ten 
people as well as individual tickets at £15 
per person to include supper (vegetarian 
option available). Alcohol is on a 
bring-your-own basis. 

Doors will open at 6.30pm, with curtain 
up at 7pm. Supper will be served during an 
extended interval from 8pm to 9pm, with a 
finale around 10pm. 

The box office is open and tickets usually 
sell out fast. Call Ian Smith on 01460 55955 
to reserve your tickets. 

If you need further information, call either 
Peter Card on 01460 55955 or Gill Clifton

TESCO in llminster helped an attempt to 
break a world record in aid of Macmillan 
Cancer Support. 

At the Macmillan event - The World’s 
Biggest Coffee Morning - staff in llminster 
tried to smash the world record for the most 
people recorded eating a cream tea alongside 
similar events at 25 stores across the region. 

The attempt was organised by llminster 
store manager Sara Goodchild with the help 
of community champion Helena Jones and 
30 Tesco staff and lucky volunteers. 


Everything was done according to Guin¬ 
ness World Records rules, the event was offi¬ 
cially witnessed, photographed and videoed 
and donations to Macmillan Cancer Support 
were gratefully accepted through the pro¬ 
ceedings. 

A spokesman for Tesco said: “All support¬ 
ing documentation has been sent to Guinness 
World Records for official ratification. 

“So all that we can do now is wait to 
hear whether or not we have been success¬ 
ful.”

New church organ 
dedicated at St Mary's 

ORGANIST Richard Godfrey and soloist Eliza¬ 
beth Denham gave their time freely for a con¬ 
cert aptly called The Celebration of a New 
Organ' at St Mary's RC Church in Axminster 
on October 13th. 

Before the concert commenced, a plaque - 
fixed to the new organ in memory of the late 
Father Michael - was dedicated by the pre¬ 
sent priest. Father Anthony Cockram. 

The concert followed with an excellent and 
varied selection of music and song, both reli¬ 
gious and light popular, which included 
pieces by Handel, Bach and Mendelssohn 
among others and songs by Burgon, A Sulli¬ 
van, Rutter, and Flanders & Swann. 

The audience was treated to a feast of ex¬ 
cellent music and song, each to a very high 
standard. 

It is hoped that the evening's concert will be 
the first of many, providing an opportunity for 
organists, professional and novice, to enjoy. 


Axe Valley students call for 
more group work in survey 


STUDENTS at Axe Valley 
Academy have completed 
a teaching and learning 
project, calling for more 
group work. 

The project included a 
practical survey in per¬ 
sonal, social, health and 
economic (PSHE) lessons, 
which asked students to 
rank ways that help them 
learn. 

Students also took part in 
a book scrutiny and as¬ 
sessed learning environ¬ 
ments before analysing the 
results. 

Teachers were impressed 
with the presentation, 
which they said was both 
professional and thought- 
provoking. 

An academy spokesper¬ 
son said: “Group work was 
a clear leader in the activ¬ 
ity of choice from students. 

“They realised that they 
can’t do group work all les- 


I Anders Larsson 

Chief reporter 
anders@viewnews.co.uk 


son, every lesson and 
therefore requested teach¬ 
ers to provide more short, 
one to two-minute opportu¬ 
nities to discuss ideas be¬ 
fore starting a task.” 

It was also found that the 
most effective displays 
were those that show stu¬ 
dents what can be achiev¬ 
ed, as good examples help¬ 
ed them understand what 
they can aim for. 

Headteacher Steve Green 
enthused: “I’m really ex¬ 
cited to be involving stu¬ 
dents in this way. 

“It is important that their 
views regarding teaching 
and learning form part of 
our planning to continue 
to improve our provision 
for young people.” 

Year 10 student Louise 


Tyne said: “We did a huge 
amount of work for this 
project. 

“We wanted to do it be¬ 
cause we value our educa¬ 
tion and we want to help 
find ways to improve as 
there are always things 
you can do to improve.” 


PSHE and Citizenship co¬ 
ordinator Rachel Chainey 
said: “This is the first time 
students at Axe Valley 
have been involved in a 
project like this and they 
are already planning fol¬ 
low-up work for later this 
year. 


“All the staff were so im¬ 
pressed at the commitment 
demonstrated by the Stu¬ 
dent Voice team to this 
project. 

“Their findings were well 
presented and their con¬ 
clusions were positive and 
insightful.” 



Halloween party 

AXMINSTER Leisure Centre is to host a Halloween pink 
dance party in aid of Breast Cancer Care. 

The event is open for those aged 14 and upwards, and 
will start at 7.30pm on Friday, October 27th. 

More information is available from the leisure centre.

BLACK cats across the years have been 
considered both unlucky and lucky. It is truw 
that on average a black cat in a rescue centre 
takes longer to re-home than any other colour 
so this Halloween we are encouraging potential 
adopters to consider re-homing one of our 
wonderful black (or black and white) cats. 

We are not claiming that our lucky 
cats will help you win the lottery but 
by adopting one of these lovely 
animals we can guarantee that they will 
win your heart! 


IliDA! V 
MS) NAME iS CUSTER! 


Buster is a really lovely cat who can be 
a little worried at times but he is really 
sweet and affectionate once he gets to 
know you and is settled in his new 
home. He has previously lived with 
young children as well as other cats 
and dogs. He is litter trained and not 
destructive in the home. 



UESI! MS) NAME i$ EDDiE 


Eddie is looking for a very special home 
with someone who can give him a second 
chance in life as he has a heart condition 
which requires monitoring rather than 
medication. Due to this, he is looking for 
a quiet home where the humans are 
adults only, and he is their only pet so he 
can get the care and the attention he 
needs. Feme Animal Sanctuary staff will 
provide his special human with as much 
information and support that they may 
need throughout his life. They know 
it is a big ask to give him a home, but 
* 0 ^ please consider him if you can!

$ * 


Monty & Murphy are a lovely pair of cats who are 
looking for a home together as they are brothers 
and are very close to one another, they are quite 
timid when they first meet you but once they get 
to know you they do enjoy being made a fuss of. 
They are not used to children and are weary of 
dogs, but they have lived with other cats before. 
They are used to living in the countryside so 
would love to be given the opportunity to 
continue exploring the great outdoors, so a home 
away from busy roads is essential. 


Hi! M9 NAME iS JASON 


Jason is a very sweet very playful 
kitten who would love to find a home 
where his new owners are around most 
of the day to give him plenty of fuss 
and attention, and he still need four 
feeds a day. He would like to live where 
there is another young cat in the home 
and he is happy to live with children of 
8yrs and over, he is litter trained but 
this may need reinforcing in the home.

who are looking for a home together where they will get the love and 
attention they have not had in the past. They would need someone who is 
around most of the day for their extra feeds and socialisation. They would 
be fine living with children aged 3 years and over and would be happy 
living with other cats and dogs. They are litter trained but this may need 
reinforcing in the home.

BURN 

BURN 

BURN 


Film society hopes 
comedy will be hot 
stuff for audience 

THE next movie showing at Clapton & Way- 
ford Film Society is on Thursday November 2, 
doors opening at 7.30pm for 2015's Burn Burn 
Burn which will be showing at 8pm. 

The British comedy sees Dan (Jack Far¬ 
thing) dispatching his good friends Seph 
(Laura Carmichael of Downton Abbey ) and 
Alex (Chloe Pirrie) on an arduous road trip to 
hit five disparate UK venues. 

He'll even accompany them: not so much 
backseat driver as wedged into the glove 
compartment, since the prematurely de¬ 
ceased Dan has assigned the bewildered, 
emotionally freefalling pair to scatter his 
ashes in places dear to his heart. 

Meantime, his funny, often painfully frank 
video missives map altogether rockier rela¬ 
tionship terrain. A crackling, life-affirming 
voyage of self-discovery. 

Clapton & Wayford Film Society screens 
movies at Clapton & Wayford Village Hall in 
Clapton. 

There is a large car park, including three 
disabled spaces by the main door with level 
entry, and all films are fed through a hearing 
loop. 

Films are shown on the first Thursday of the 
month. Guest tickets booked in advance are 
£4. 

For more details, email mickpwilson53@ 
btinternet.com or look at facebook.com/ 
ClaptonWayfordFilmSociety. 


Free activities for 
kids this half-term 


CREWKERNE & District Museum is offering 
free Halloween activities for children during 
the half-term holiday. 

Children can have fun hunting for spiders 
and pumpkins in the galleries and then dec¬ 
orate a spooky biscuit, or make a mask or 
Halloween decoration. 

They can drop into the museum tomorrow 
(Wednesday), Thursday and Friday between 
10am and 4pm to take part. 

The last special exhibition of the season, 
The Hidden Collection - How We Lived will 
close on Saturday (October 28). 

Next month the galleries will be trans¬ 
formed into Art In The Museum (November 
4 to 25) when the public can visit for free to 
view the work of around 30 exhibitors. 

Museum volunteer Janet Harris said: 
“From pottery, glassware, textiles and other 
crafts to paintings and photography, there 


will be something for all tastes and pockets. 

“The art exhibition is open daily except 
Sundays from 11am to 2pm. 

“On Wednesday November 8, come along 
and discover the age old craft using natural 
materials. 

“The museum will close to the public at the 
end of November for essential work on repair 
and decoration to the walls that were dam¬ 
aged when heavy rain penetrated the build¬ 
ing. 

“The recent award of full accreditation by 
Arts Council England is well deserved by all 
of those who volunteer to keep the museum 
and heritage centre in Crewkerne a thriving 
organisation. 

“Bookings for research or group visits dur¬ 
ing the winter may be limited but an email to 
crewkernemuseum@hotmail.co.uk will clar¬ 
ify the situation.” 



■ THE evening promises to provide the 
full bonfire-night experience, including 
sparklers 


Display set to go 
off with a bang 

SATURDAY November 4 will see the 
annual Rotary Club of Crewkerne 
District bonfire and fireworks.

president Martin Holley said: “This is 
one of the highlights of the Rotary

see the community come together for 
such a magical experience.” 

The event is sponsored by Singleton 
Engineering, and can be watched from

Wishing everyone a great Honiton Carnival for 2017 


THIS year's carnival is set to be another 
stunning event, welcoming entries 
from around Devon and Somerset. 
Many of the clubs have been working 
all year round to get their floats and 
walking entries ready for the carnival 
season which started at the beginning 
of September. This year we are the last 
carnival before the end of the East 
Devon Circuit season so everyone will 
be out to make the last one the best 
one. The procession will be lead out by 
the Kelly Leigh Dance Troupe from 
Chard from about 7.15pm and will be 
doing displays along the route to 
entertain the crowd while waiting for 
the main procession.

CARNIVAL Secretary, Karen Wilson, said "We must thank the sponsors of this year's carnival, 
without whom, the carnival would not happen. Their support is so important to us and is greatly 
appreciated. The committee is also extremely thankful to Tesco who awarded us £2000 from 
their Bags of Help scheme. This money is being put towards the 
running costs of the carnival which increase every year. Lastly, 
we want to urge people to come out and support the carnival 
by putting whatever change they have in the collecting 
buckets and floats. Any profit made from the collection 
goes to local good causes".

Lyme’s musical remembrance 


THIS year’s Armistice Day will be 
marked at Marine Theatre in Lyme 
Regis by a big band Remembrance con¬ 
cert on the evening of Saturday, 
November 11th. 

Swing Unlimited Big Band bring 
war-time classics by Glen Miller, 
Count Basie and Duke Ellington back 
to life in “We’ll Meet Again”, a one-off 
concert, with songs by Ella Fitzgerald, 
Frank Sinatra and of course, Vera 
Lynn. 

Swing Unlimited is one of the most 
versatile and entertaining swing 
bands in the south of England. Based 
in Bournemouth, this 17 piece band 
say they’ll play anything “as long as it 
swings”. 

Although Remembrance Day now 
commemorates casualties from all 
wars, it was during the Second World 
War that music - and especially Amer¬ 
ican big band music - helped boost 
morale, providing a distinctive musi¬ 
cal soundtrack to the 1940s. And 


there’s no better place to mark this 
than in Marine Theatre which was 
used as an American forces canteen in 
the build up to D-Day. 

The evening is hosted by Jazz Juras- 
sica at Marine Theatre and will use 
music, images and words to re-create 
the war-time era including a Last Post 
and a minute’s silence. 

Julie Shep¬ 
pard of Jazz 
Jurassica said: 

“In addition to 
the Royal 

British Legion 
events in the 
town, we want 
this to be a mu¬ 
sical celebra¬ 
tion of 

Remembrance 
for the whole 
community. 

This will be a 
fun, uplifting 


evening - and a good way to pay our re¬ 
spects to those we’ll be remembering 
over the weekend”. 

“We’ll Meet Again” takes place on 
Saturday, November 11th at 8pm at the 
Marine Theatre, Church Street, Lyme 
Regis. Tickets: £18/£16 (concessions) 
from Box Office: 01297 441238 or 
www.marinetheatre.com. 



The Snow Dragon 
approaches... 



Tall Stories, creators of the nationally and internationally ac¬ 
claimed stage shows of The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom and The 
Snail and the Whale are coming to The Beehive in Honiton on Fri¬ 
day, October 27th at 2pm with their magical production of The 
Snow Dragon. 

It tells the story of Billy, a spoilt young goat whose parents give 
him everything he wants. And what he doesn’t get from them, he 
steals from his friends. On New Year’s Eve, Billy is looking forward 
to the annual visit of the legendary Snow Dragon, who will bring 
him presents in the night...But when Billy bumps into some hun¬ 
gry wolves in the forest, New Year’s Day seems a long way off! How 
will Billy escape? And has he been naughty or nice? 

Toe-tapping songs and lots of laughs for everyone aged 3 and up. 
Tickets can be bought in person at The Beehive in Dowell Street, 
online at www.beehivehoniton.co.uk or by calling the box office 
01404 384050. Booking in advance is recommended. The show lasts

tober 27th. For more details or to book call 01404 384050 or vsit

Week . New volunteers are always welcome. For de¬ 
tails on where to meet and what to bring, booking is

Legacy to Landscape is a three year project involv¬ 
ing the community and celebrates a hidden area of 
landscape in an area of East Devon, based on the 
1781 map of the Shute Estate. 

This historic map covers the landscape of the Coly- 
ton and Shute area, west of Axminster. 

Legacy to Landscape is funded by the Heritage 
Lottery Fund with support from the East Devon 
AONB Partnership, Colyton Parish History Society, 
Devon Wildlife Trust, Botanists and farmers Marian 
Reed and Phil Wilson, and the Axe Vale and District 
Conservation Society.

project are available online at the East Devon AONB

Come together today 
for a better tomorrow 


FREE SOUL is a group of likeminded individu¬ 
als united by their passion to encourage the 
community to pull together for a brighter fu¬ 
ture. 

With the local area currently exceeding in 
housing development, there are plenty of com¬ 
munity issues taking a back seat. With this in 
mind, the group has been inspired to help the 
Tom Chubb Fund with vital fundraising re¬ 
quired to build and maintain a quality concrete 
skate park in Axminster. 

People travel all over the UK and beyond to lo¬ 
cate their perfect skate park and so why not 
support this very project which currently sits 
right on our doorstep, needing your help! 

How are they going to do it? 

What better way than to plan festivals for all 
ages - the perfect way to chill out, come to¬ 
gether, enjoy the party and most importantly 
raise funds for a worthy cause. 

The ‘Free Soul Octoberfest’ is just that; good 
for the soul! Set in the centre of Axminster, for 
all ages, with music, madness from 12pm to 
12am with plenty to keep you entertained. 
From stalls and wacky activities, a fun fair, to 
some of the best music the local area has to 
offer, the whole family is covered. 

Music enthusiasts, happy hippies, family 
fundraisers, festival folk, community lovers 
and local people join together - the Octoberfest 
is one not to be missed! 

About the Tom Chubb Fund 

On October 30th, 2012, the Axminster commu¬ 
nity was shaken by the sudden and tragic death 
of 18 year old Tom Chubb in a car accident. 

Following the tragic news, Axminster’s skate 
park has become a hub for those affected, with 
fundraising becoming an essential tool to use 
in order to turn the sadness and loss of Tom 
into something positive for the future. 


The fundraising began when donations were 
made to the skate park during Tom’s funeral. 
From then on, friends and relatives of Tom 
began a new journey, campaigning for better 
skate facilities for BMX and skateboard riders 
(something Tom loved) and... a dedicated team 
of fundraisers were born. 

The skate park site has been donated by 
Cloakham Lawns, and is not owned by the local 
council, so it is up to fundraisers, the steering 
group and those who skate there to ensure the 
park is maintained and looked after. 

Insurance, small rent to Cloakham and the 
building of the skate park all comes from 
fundraising and so there is a constant need for 
money to be raised at every opportunity to keep 
this hub alive. 

Well-known skate park design and build com¬ 
pany Maverick Industries will be heading up 
the latest design and contracting of the new 
park which organisers are sure will drive all 
ages and abilities from across East Devon to 
enjoy. 

Now officially granted charity status, the next 
step is to put in for planning for a bigger and 
better park. Supported by local councillors and 
the community, the group hope the next stage 
in the project will be well supported and achiev¬ 
able! 

Funfair, Bouncy Castle, Pumpkin Competi¬ 
tion, Halloween Fancy Dress Competition, 
Apple Bobbing, Raffle, Gin and Prosecco Bar, 
Otter Beer, Larger and Cider Bar, check out 
www.freesoulfestivals.com for our full set list

Kerri Watt brings Old 
School Love to Exeter 



The Gravity Drive live 


BBC RADIO 2 A-listed singer song¬ 
writer Kerri Watt has announced her 
first ever headline tour, with 14-dates 
across the UK this November. 

Kicking off on November 2nd in 
Derby, Kerri will be playing in some of 
the UK's biggest towns, including 
shows in Liverpool, Leeds, Birming¬ 
ham, London, Manchester, Exeter, and 
her home town - Glasgow. 

This news comes off the back of 
Kerri's recent single, 'Old School 
Love', her first for her new label East 
West Records (Warners). Whilst con¬ 
tinuing to showcase her knack for 
writing a great hook, 'Old School 
Love,' marked a slight change from 
her previous two singles, the BBC 
Radio 2 play listed 'Long Way Home' 
and 'The Wild'. With a more simple 
production and mellow instrumenta¬ 
tion, it's a love song that as its title 
suggests, plays homage to an old 
school sound. The melody let's Kerri's 
vocal shine, laying bare the 
honest accessible song writ¬ 
ing that has already won her 
an army of loyal fans. 

Over the past year, Kerri 
has been travelling across 
the world, performing and 
writing new material. This in¬ 
cludes a track written and 
recorded with Embrace 
which she recently per¬ 
formed with them at their 
two night opening slot for 
Coldplay at Cardiff's Princi¬ 
pality Stadium - in front of 
74,000 - her biggest audi¬ 
ence yet. 

Kerri's previous success in¬ 
cludes the aforementioned 


BBC Radio 2 A-list for her single' Long 
Way Home' and a Radio 2 B-List for 
'The Wild.' She's performed on ITV's 
Weekend Show and STVs Live At Five, 
plus had critical acclaim everywhere 
from the Daily Telegraph, The Inde¬ 
pendent, The Sun, Metro, Daily Star, 
Notion, Glamour Magazine, to Atti¬ 
tude Magazine, Music Week and 
Record of the Day amongst many oth¬ 
ers. She also hit Number 1 on Hype 
Machine with the remix of her single 
'You' and has performed at festivals 
including Isle of Wight, The Great Es¬ 
cape, Secret Garden Party and Glas¬ 
tonbury. She's also supported Nina 
Nesbitt, Ward Thomas, Starsailor, Mike 
& The Mechanics and The Overtones. 

Kerri Watt plays live in the Voodoo 
Lounge at The Phoenix, Exeter on Sat¬ 
urday, November 18th. Tickets are £8 
(£6 cones) available from www.exeter- 
phoenix.org.uk or by calling 01392 
667080.

THE Gravity Drive, a local har¬ 
mony driven alt-pop band 
fronted by husband and wife 
Ava and Elijah Wolf, will per¬ 
form at the Marine Theatre, 
Lyme Regis on Thursday, 
November 2nd, in support of 
their new single, Shooting Star, 
mixed by Chris Potter (The 
Verve - Urban Hymns). 

Mesmeric and mellow with Eli¬ 
jah singing lead vocal, Shooting 
Star is a song about devotion 
written by Elijah for his wife 
Ava. Ava’s hypnotic harmonies 
weave a childlike wonder 
throughout the track creating a 
perfect ‘play it again’ vintage yet 


of the moment sound. 

The Gravity Drive have fea¬ 
tured on - and been championed 
by - Radio 2 and BBC 6Music, 
with Dermot O’Leary describ¬ 
ing the band’s work as ‘Lovely 
stuff, and Chris Hawkins of 
6Music exclaiming the band are 
‘inspired and inspiring’. 

The concert on Thursday, 
November 2nd will feature sup¬ 
port from Grace Gillan and Jake 
Miller.

The heroes British rock 
need’ head to Exeter 

HAILED as the "heroes British rock needs right now" 
and lauded by everyone from Alt Press and Upset to 
Rhythm and Total Guitar, Hunter & The Bear are busy 
making raw, melodic and downright thunderous 
rock cut straight from the heart. 

From securing support slots with Eric Clapton, 
Simple Minds and Van Morrison, to selling-out pre¬ 
vious headline tours, here is a quartet that grew up 
on a heavy diet of rock royalty - Biffy Clyro, Foo 
Fighters and more recently Royal Blood - who make 
music that is melancholy, expansive and uplifting all 
at the same time, their powerhouse riffs more than 
enough to keep rock purists and casual listeners 
alike satisfied. 

Live, this is a band where each song performed 
threatens to topple over with lightning-charged in¬ 
tensity and in May they released their debut album, 
'Paper Heart' - ten memorable offerings that have 
already earned them a legion of dedicated fans. 

With all songs written and performed by this group 
of close friends exclusively. Hunter & the Bear are a 
real, organic project - one that's built on pure pas¬ 
sion, drive and belief in each other as musicians. 
Catch them on tour this November, they'll obliterate 
everything you thought a band should be. 

Hunter & The Bear play live at The Phoenix, Exeter 
on Thursday, November 16th at 8pm. Tickets are £9, 
available from www.exeterphoenix.org.uk or by call¬ 
ing 01392 667080. 



Celebrating 
Nick Drake 


Two shows at the Marine Theatre look at 
the life of the hugely influential folk enigma 


NICK DRAKE may have only recorded 31 songs 
during his short life but - following his suicide 
at the age of 26 - his reknown as one of the most 
cherished folk singers of the early seventies 
has become firmly cemented in the minds of 
subsequent generations. 

At the Marine Theatre in November, there 
are two special events that mark the musi¬ 
cian’s short life; together they tell the tale of a 
musician’s journey from cult figure to folk idol. 

A former BBC soundman at the legendary 


Maida Vale studios, Keith James has played 
over 2000 shows dedicated to the music of Nick 
Drake. Over 15 years Keith has become an am¬ 
bassador for Drake’s music and is known as 
the country’s best interpreter, securing him 
performances at almost every acoustic music 
festival. There’s even been a Glastonbury per¬ 
formance. Keith performs this special show at 
the Marine on Friday, November 17th. 

The second event is Strange Face. It’s a one- 
man spoken-word show by Michael Burdett. 
After finding a lost Nick Drake 
recording in a skip, he armed himself 
with the music, a camera and a pair 
of headphones, and travelled the 
length and breadth of the country. He 
found 200 people prepared to stop, lis¬ 
ten and talk including Billy Bragg, 
Martin Freeman and Noel Fielding. 
In this event Michael tells a fascinat¬ 
ing story of the people he pho¬ 
tographed and their stories, which 
The Times called “a gorgeous one- 
man show” as their pick of Edin¬ 
burgh Festival. 

Tickets are £14 and £12 concession 
for each of the shows. For more de¬ 
tails and to book tickets visit 
www.marinetheatre.com or call the 
box office on 01297 442138.

A Really Classical concert 



ANYONE who enjoyed Bristol’s acclaimed Really 
Classical Relay - a wonderful weekend of classical 
music played on historical instruments, which 
took place earlier this year - will be delighted to 
learn that Concerts in the West is offering music 
lovers a chance to hear some of the festival’s high¬ 
lights again at the final performances of CitW’s 
2017 season. 

Four brilliant young chamber musicians who 
played at Really Classical Relay - Jonathan Rees, 
John Crockatt, Guy Button and James Toll - will 
be bringing to life three superb works, including 
JS Bach’s Preludes and Fugues, K404a (arr. 
Mozart), Haydn String Quartet Op. 20 No 2 in C 
major and Beethoven’s luminous and transcen¬ 
dent late quartet Op. 132 in A minor. For added au¬ 
thenticity, all the pieces will be played on 
historical instruments, so expect gut strings and 
unusually shaped bows. For added authenticity, 
the musicians play from early editions and 
manuscripts. 

Jonathan Rees plays cello and viol with a num¬ 
ber of different groups and has been a guest prin¬ 
cipal and viol soloist with the Academy of Ancient 
Music and Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, 
continuo gambist /bass violinist with ENO in In¬ 
dian Queen, and has performed with the viol con¬ 
sorts Fretwork and Phantasm. Most notably, he 
performed Stockhausen's Mittwoch Aus Licht on 
a swinging perspex platform in a Birmingham 
Chemical Factory attended by two camels. 

Jonathan is principal cellist of La Nuova Musica, 
is a founder member of the new viol consort Newe 
Vialles and is also principal cellist of the Faust 
Chamber Orchestra. He plays with fellow cellist 
Vladimir Waltham in prize-winning Duo 
Domenico, which has played in the London 
Baroque Festival, York International Early Music 
Festival and many venues across Europe. 

John Crockatt is a professional violinist and vio¬ 
list, specialising in music from the baroque and 
classical eras. He has performed as principal viola 


with the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and the 
Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, as princi¬ 
pal violin with Solomon’s Knot and has played and 
recorded with groups including the English 
Baroque Soloists, the Gabrieli Players and the 
Early Opera Company. In 2015 he performed as 
principal violinist in the Globe Theatre’s play 
Farinelli and the King, starring Mark Rylance and 
Iestyn Davies. Projects in 2016 included concerts 
and recordings with Arcangelo, performances in 
China with the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra as 
well as recitals with harpsichordist Tom Foster in 
the UK and Spain. 

Guy Button violin and viola. Following studies at 
the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and 
Robinson College, Cambridge, Guy has appeared 
as chamber musician and soloist at the Wigmore 
Hall, St. Johns’ Smith Square and many other high 
profile venues internationally. As well as perform¬ 
ing in the Ruisi Quartet, Guy appears regularly 
with the London Chamber Orchestra, English 
Chamber Orchestra, European Union Chamber 
Orchestra, The 12 ensemble and the London Con¬ 
temporary Orchestra. 

James Toll began playing the violin at the age of 
six and studied at the Purcell School. He has 
played chamber music at the Wigmore Hall, Cado- 
gan Hall, St John's and The Queen Elizabeth Hall, 
and once conducted a workshop for two hundred 
teenagers from South London, which he very 
much enjoyed. James has a Bachelor's degree from 
the Royal Northern College of Music and plays 
with some of the top ensembles in the UK. He is 
currently trialling as co-principal second violin 
with the Scottish Ensemble. 

Catherine Maddocks, the founder and director of 
Concerts in the West, said: “We are delighted to 
welcome back Jonathan Rees who played so beau¬ 
tifully for us with Reveries Musicales in 2012. 
Jonathan is also the founder and artistic director 
of Really Classical Relay, which is a terrific classi¬ 
cal music micro festival in Bristol, featuring early 
music written between 1750 and 1830. The per¬ 
formances they are giving for Concerts in the 
West will give a flavour of the Relay’s wonder¬ 
ful programme, which the musicians play on 
historical instruments with both skill and 
tremendous enthusiasm. I cannot think of a 
better or more joyous way to end our 2017 se¬ 
ries than with these remarkable musicians.” 

Evening recital programme: JS Bach Pre¬ 
ludes and Fugues, K404a (arr. Mozart), Haydn 
String Quartet Op. 20 No 2 in C major; 
Beethoven String Quartet Op. 132 in A minor. 

The ‘Really Classical’ concert takes place at 
Ilminster Arts Centre at the Meeting House on 
Friday, December 1st at 8pm. Box Office: 01460

Tickets: £15. Bar and cafe, IAC and town park¬

STEELEYE SPAN are fast approaching their 50th 
anniversary, with a work rate to put many younger 
artists to shame. The bands’ eighth album in twelve 
years - 2016's ‘Dodgy Bastards’ - saw them return to 
the folk tales and characters that have always been 
at the heart of the Steeleye sound. Dodgy Bastards 
saw the folk-rock pioneers continue drawing stories 
of murder, religion, incest, skulls, honour killings 
and tormented spirit. They once more create an 
inspired and dark take on the music of the 
British Isles. 

Steeleye follow Dodgy Bastards up with a UK tour 
which sees them introduce a new seven-piece line 
up. Roger Carey joining on bass and Benji Kirk¬ 
patrick adding bouzouki, acoustic guitar and vocals. 
The band revisit the record that began their career. 
Released in 1970, 'Hark! The Village Wait’ not only 


introduced the band to the world but also played a 
vital part in the history of folk rock, helping kick- 
start a sound that would come to define British tra¬ 
ditional music over the following years. 

Featuring a number of songs that have become 
part of the Steeleye legend, the group have revisited 
moments on stage and in the studio before, but on 
these dates, they will play “Hark!” in its entirety for 
the first time - bringing together the past, present 
and future of this famous band. 

Steeleye Span play live at the Corn Exchange, Ex¬ 
eter on Wednesday, November 22nd (for more de¬ 
tails call 01392 665938), they then play at the Octagon 
Theatre, Yeovil on Saturday, November 25th (01935 
422884); and the group also play at Taunton’s Brew- 
house Theatre, Taunton on Monday, November 27th 
(01823 283244). 



Those Were The Days 


LOVERS of local history are in for 
a treat next month when a unique 
event comes to Lyme Regis's Ma¬ 
rine Theatre. 

The show, entitled 'Those Were 
The Days', is a fascinating combi¬ 
nation of archive film footage set 
to live music, with traditional 
songs and tunes from the West 
Dorset area. 

It is the result of a collaboration 
between the organisers of Lyme 
Folk Weekend, West Country folk 
singer Amanda Boyd and the 
Windrose Rural Media Trust, who 
hold an amazing archive of local 
fiilms featuring footage from 


Lyme Regis, West Bay, Bridport 
and the surroundng area. 

The films provide a wonderful 
glimpse into the past, and in¬ 
clude interviews and clips of 
local trades, farming practices 
and some of the fascinating and 
engaging local characters from 
yesteryear. 

And, as Amanda explains, the 
West Dorset folk music, sung and 
played by local musicians, pro¬ 
vide the perfect accompaniment. 

'We are thrilled to let people see 
these amazing films,' said 
Amanda. 'And I was in Lyme Regis 
one evening when I chanced 


upon a group of local singers in 
the Pilot Boat Inn, and thought 
they would provide the perfect 
soundtrack, as many of the films 
are silent. 

Organiser of Lyme Folk Week¬ 
end, Jeremy Hayes, added: 'Since 
meeting Amanda at the Pilot Boat 
we have added a few more musi¬ 
cians and singers, and worked to¬ 
gether on devising a programme 
of tunes and songs, which go 
perfectly with the films.' 

Tickets for the 'Those Were The 
Days' on Thursday, November 16, 
are on sale from the Marine The¬ 
atre box office on 01297 442138. 


Have an enchanted evening!

Meanwhile, the strapping Lieutenant, 
Joe Cable visits the island of Bali Hai 
and is introduced to Bloody Mary’s 
beautiful daughter, Liat, and soon falls 
in love with her. 

Featuring some of Rodgers and Ham¬ 
merstein’s most famous tunes includ¬ 


ing I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right

Winter is coming - be prepared with 
a winter check from Vauxhall 


VAUXHALL is helping its customers 
beat the winter blues when they book 
in their vehicle for a comprehensive 25- 
point health check. The seasonal Check 
and Treat programme looks after vehi¬ 
cle and driver alike, with customers 
able to choose between coffee and cake, 
cinema tickets or headphones for them¬ 
selves as an added bonus. 

The difficult driving conditions asso¬ 
ciated with winter, such as poor visi¬ 
bility, colder weather and more 
variable road conditions mean that 
drivers need to be confident that their 
car will keep them and their occupants 


safe and sound. For just £25, drivers 
can treat their car to a 25-point check, 
carried out by Vauxhall-trained tech¬ 
nicians. This will include checking 
steering and suspension among other 
key components, as well as topping-up 
vital fluids to ensure vehicles are 
ready for whatever winter brings. 
Once the car has been thoroughly 
checked, customers can then treat 
themselves, with vouchers for coffee 
and cake, cinema tickets or a set of 
headphones up for grabs to make the 
start of winter a bit more bearable. 
“Winter can bring with it some pretty 


nasty driving conditions; rain, wind, 
slippery road surfaces and longer, 
darker nights, so it’s important to make 
sure that your car is winter-ready,” 
said Alex Shields, Vauxhall’s Head of 
Ownership Programmes and Personal¬ 
isation. “Our technicians will take a 
thorough look at each car that comes in 
for a 25-point check, so drivers can rest 
assured that their car is in top condi¬ 
tion for the difficult months ahead.” 
Customers can visit the Vauxhall 
website for more information, and to 
book a Vauxhall Check and Treat at a 
local participating retailer.

New Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross forecast to be 
amongst segment best for residual values 


THE ALL-NEW Mitsubishi Eclipse 
Cross will offer some of the very best 
residual values in its segment, accord¬ 
ing to industry experts cap hpi, when 
it launches in the UK in January. 

The automotive expert has forecast 
that the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross 2 will 
retain up to 48.1 per cent of its list price 
after three years or 60,000 miles, while 
the Eclipse Cross 3 will retain up to 47.5 
per cent of its value and even the top- 
of-the-range Eclipse Cross 4 will retain 
46.9 per cent of its value, placing the 
new Mitsubishi SUV firmly amongst 
the very best in its segment. 

It is also one of the strongest results 
ever achieved by the brand’s vehicles 
in the UK, an indication of Mit¬ 
subishi’s growing reputation as a man¬ 
ufacturer of high-quality and desirable 
SUV and 4X4 vehicles. 

The news follows the announcement 


of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross’s 
highly competitive pricing, which 
starts at £21,275 OTR, giving cost-con¬ 
scious drivers even more reason to 
consider the new SUV. 

Heightening its appeal and value is 
an extensive standard specification 
that compares favourably to its rivals. 
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross benefits 
from standard equipment such as 
Smartphone Display Audio that is 
compatible with Apple CarPlay and 
Android Auto, touch-pad controller, 
rear view camera, DAB radio with six 
speakers, climate control air condi¬ 
tioning, LED Daytime Running Lights, 
Lane Departure Warning and Forward 
Collision Mitigation (FCM), which 
uses radar technology to detect a risk 
of collision. 

Also highlighting the Mitsubishi 
Eclipse Cross’s value is the availabil¬ 


ity of a version that combines a petrol 
engine, automatic transmission and 
four-wheel drive for £25,350 OTR - the 
most affordable vehicle of its type in 
its class. 

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross repre¬ 
sents a bold new direction for the brand 
and is the first of a new generation of 
models that will position the manufac¬ 
turer as a leader in the SUV market. It 
has been developed with a focus on 
three core areas - inspiring design, 
driving dynamics and technology. 

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross offers a 
choice of three trim levels -2,3 and 4 - 
with, depending on version, either two- 
wheel drive or four-wheel drive. From 
launch, all variants are powered by a 
1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine, 
mated to six-speed manual or all-new 
eight-step CVT automatic transmis¬ 
sions. A 2.2-litre diesel engine will fol¬ 


low in 2018. The range is priced from 
£21,275 OTR with the top-of-the range 4 
version starting from £24,975 OTR.

Winter 2017 offers from Suzuki 


SUZUKI Financial Services 
are pleased to announce 
their Winter PCP Finance of¬ 
fers across the range. A PCP 
(Personal Contract Pur¬ 
chase) agreement is an ideal 
route for customers who 
want to purchase a new 
Suzuki with a low deposit 
and a low monthly cost. 

Its popular Celerio SZ2 City 
car is available for just £89 
per month payable over 48 
months after a deposit of 
£1,945 is made and with an 
optional final payment of 
£2,206 required to keep the 
car. As an alternative, a de¬ 
posit of just £131 can be made 
to drive away an SZ2 fol¬ 
lowed by 48 monthly pay¬ 
ments of £131 and an optional 
final payment of £2,206. 

Launched in January, the 
Ignis SZ3 is priced at £10,999 
and is available for £159 per 
month over 48 months with a 
deposit of £1,212 and optional 
final payment of £3,770. The 
Ignis range is very well 
equipped as standard with 
highly efficient 1.2-litre Du¬ 


aljet engine, air condition¬ 
ing, DAB radio, six airbags, 
rear privacy glass and body 
coloured door mirrors all in¬ 
cluded as standard specifica¬ 
tion. One year’s free 
insurance and three years 
free servicing is also in¬ 
cluded across the Ignis range 
when the PCP option is 
taken up. 

The all new Swift was 
launched in June and the 1.0 
Boosterjet SZ-T is available 
on PCP with Zero per cent 
APR plus Nil deposit at a cost 
of £199 per month. This is a 
42 month agreement with a 
final payment of £5,135. Swift 
SZ-T is highly equipped with 
DAB Radio, air conditioning, 
Smartphone link display 
audio, 16-inch alloy wheels 
and front foglamps. 

For an additional £22 per 
month, customers can step 
up to an SZ5 manual trans¬ 
mission model which offers 
SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehi¬ 
cle by Suzuki) for even 
greater fuel efficiency as 
well as keyless entry / start, 


Auto air conditioning, Dual 
Camera Brake Support 
and LED Headlights, all as 
standard equipment. 

Moving up to Baleno, a cus¬ 
tomer saving of £2,000 is 
available on the SZ3 model 
and £1,500 on the SZ-T and 
SZ5 models when linked to 
the 5.9 per cent PCP agree¬ 
ment. Taking an SZ3 as an 
example, a deposit of £813 is 
required followed by 48 
monthly payments of £159 
and an optional final pay¬ 
ment of £3,643. 

For the Vitara models and 
highlighting the 1.6-litre 
petrol SZ-T 2WD, a £2,849 de¬ 
posit is required followed by 
36 monthly payments of £199 
with an optional final pay¬ 
ment of £7,486 to keep the 
car. For customers consider¬ 
ing an SZ-T Vitara with ALL¬ 
GRIP or a 1.6-litre diesel 
engine, the monthly pay¬ 
ments increase by £30 to¬ 
gether with a small increase 
in initial deposit. 

Standard equipment speci¬ 
fication for the Vitara SZ4 


models upwards includes 
seven airbags, 16-inch alloy 
wheels, DAB Radio with 
USB and Bluetooth connec¬ 
tivity, Cruise control with 
speed limiter, auto air condi¬ 
tioning, front and rear 
electric windows and projec¬ 


tor headlamps. SZ-T adds 
Silver 17-inch alloy wheels, 
Smartphone Link Audio 
and Navigation system. 

For S-Cross models, a 
£2,500 Customer saving is 
included for Q4 when linked 
to a PCP agreement which 


reduces the list price of an 
SZ4 model down from £16,999 
to £14,499. 48 monthly pay¬ 
ments of £189 are required 
after a deposit of £2,621 
and the optional final pay¬ 
ment for this model S-Cross 
is £4,790.

A new angle on advanced technology: 
The new Audi A7 Sportback 


AUDI has a completely new slant on the 
concept of the five-door coupe for the ex¬ 
ecutive class - the first A7 Sportback in 
which the brand successfully combined 
the svelte lines of a classic grand tourer 
with the reality-ready attributes of Saloon 
and Avant models is about to give way to 
its successor. Fluent in the new Audi de¬ 
sign language, conversant with the 
brand’s latest technological advances and 
comfortable with articulating its most re¬ 
cent drivetrain developments, the 2018 A7 
evolves and finesses every facet of the 
Sportback theme without losing sight of 
the hallmarks behind its original appeal. 

Dynamics at their most beautiful: 

The exterior design 

The exterior design of the A7 Sportback 
is an expression of the new design lan¬ 
guage that Audi introduced with the pro¬ 
logue study and that made its production 
debut in the new Audi A8. With large sur¬ 
faces, sharp edges and taut, athletic lines, 
the A7 conveys dynamism and progres¬ 
siveness from every perspective. 

Up front, the Singleframe grille - wider 
and lower than that of the Audi A8 - the 
narrow headlights, the boldly contoured 
air inlets and the flat front end signal in¬ 
tent. In some versions the light signature 
takes up the subject of digitalisation: 12 
adjacent lighting segments separated by 


narrow intervening spaces evoke associ¬ 
ations with the binary digits 0 and 1. The 
top lighting configuration is the HD Ma¬ 
trix LED headlight with Audi laser light. 

With its long bonnet, long wheelbase 
and short overhangs the A7 Sportback 
looks lean and muscular yet also innately 
elegant. Its key dimensions give more 
than a clue to its character: It is 4,969 mil¬ 
limetres long, has a wheelbase of 2,926 
millimetres and is 1,908 millimetres wide, 
but stands only 1,422 millimetres high. 
Pronounced contours emphasise the 
wheels, which measure up to 21 inches in 
diameter, and reference Audi’s quattro 
genes. These genes determine the propor¬ 
tions of the vehicle’s body. The silhouette 
is defined by the dynamic roofline, which 
drops sharply towards the rear. 

As with the previous model, the tapered 
rear with its long luggage compartment 
lid terminates in a pronounced, curved 
lip from which an integrated spoiler ex¬ 
tends automatically at 74mph and above. 
A flat light strip - a design feature com¬ 
mon to all of Audi’s top models - joins the 
rear lights, whose tail lights are made up 
of 13 vertical segments. When the doors 
are unlocked and again when they are 
locked, fast-moving light animations play 
in the rear lights and in the headlights, 
highlighting the imposing coupe’s dy¬ 


namics while standing still. The progres¬ 
sive exterior design of the new Audi A7 
Sportback is largely devoid of embellish¬ 
ment, and is presented in a choice of 15 
colours, eight of which are new. S line 
models further hone the look through 
modifications to the radiator grille and 
the front air inlets, the sills and the front 
and rear diffusers. They are trimmed in 
gloss black and more strongly sculpted. 

Broad-based electrification 

All A7 Sportback models will be equipped 
with a new mild hybrid system (MHEV) 
for greater comfort and efficiency. With 
the V6 engines, this uses a 48-volt primary 
electrical system. A belt alternator starter 
(BAS) works together with a lithium-ion 
battery and achieves a recuperation per¬ 
formance of up to 12 kW when braking. At 
speeds of between 34 and 99mph, the large 
coupe can coast in freewheeling mode 
with the engine deactivated and then 
restart comfortably via the BAS. 

The start-stop function has been signifi¬ 
cantly expanded and now activates at 
13mph. In combination with the standard 
front camera, the engine is restarted pre- 
dictively while at a standstill as soon as 
the vehicle ahead begins to move. In real- 
world driving, the MHEV technology re¬ 
duces fuel consumption by up to 0.7 litres 
per 100 kilometres. 


The new Audi A7 Sportback will ini¬ 
tially launch with the 3.0 V6 TFSI petrol 
engine. The super-refined V6 turbo pro¬ 
duces 340PS and 500 Nm (368.81b-ft), pro¬ 
pelling the elegant five-door coupe from 0 
to 62mph in 5.3 seconds and on to a top 
speed of 155mph. In the NEDC, the entry 
version of the Audi A7 55 TFSI returns up 
to 41.5mpg, corresponding to C02 emis¬ 
sions of 154 grams. The 3.0 TFSI is paired 
with a seven-speed S tronic twin-clutch 
transmission, and its output is profi¬ 


ciently managed by the latest iteration of 
the quattro drivetrain using the efficient 
ultra technology that activates rear- 
wheel drive as needed. Additional six- 
and four-cylinder engines, both petrol 
and diesel, will follow shortly after the 
start of production. 

Produced at the Neckarsulm site in Ger¬ 
many, the new Audi A7 Sportback will be 
available to order in the UK from early 2018, 
with pricing for the first phase of models 
starting from approximately £56,000 OTR.

Saturday, October 21st 
Caine 1 Chard Town 1 

Toolstation Div One - att; 55 
BOTH teams went close to snatch¬ 
ing all three points at windswept 
Bremhill Lane on Saturday. 

The hosts, who came into the 
game on the back of four straight 
defeats, took the lead midway 
throught the first half through 
Staurt Windsor. 

The Robins went close soon after 
with a fierce Matt Howell drive that 
beat home keeper Steve Allison all 
ends up but thudded against the 
outside of a post. 

But the home gloveman was 
made to pay for a slip just after the 
half hour and top scorer Alex Stafie 
finished cooly for his sixth goal of 
the season. 

The hosts clipped the crossbar 
just before the interval but the 
teams were forced to share the 
spoils. 

Next up for Chard, still lying 17th 
in the table, is Saturday's visit by 
Corsham Town in the first of four 
consecutive home matches. 

Chard Town: Jon Hill, Ollie Pear¬ 
son, Kieran Bailey, Jack Dicker, Ben 
Haines, Luke Jackson (James Boy- 
land 70), Matt Howell, Liam Cleal 
(Max Westlake 38), Brad Miles, 
Taoufik Ben Salem, Alex Stafie.

Elsewhere, llminster Town Re¬

SOMERSET LEAGUE 

Ilminster Town 4 Clutton 1 

Premier Division 

ILMINSTER Town jumped five 
places back into the top seven with 
an impressive win over Clutton. 

With Storm Brian delivering 
strong winds it was never going to 
be an easy day for football. 

The Blues started well with Brad 
Pitman having a good chance but 
he was not set and took his shot to 
early, his brother Ben then found 
himself with space on the edge of 
the box, but his well struck shoot 
went wide. 

Clutton, the Swans, were now 
coming more into the match and 
had a great chance to take the lead 
on the half hour mark, intercepting 
a poor pass their striker failed to 
trouble Chris May as his shot went 
wide from the edge of the area. 

llminster were next on the attack 
with Taylor Jefferson cutting in 
from the right and looking set to 
score only for a great tackle from 
Clutton captain Joe Cole to stop 
him in his tracks. 

With half time approaching and 
the strong wind behind, them 
llminster pushed forward realising 
that they needed a goal. And they 
got it when a Tom Sullivan corner 


was headed home by an unmarked 
Jefferson at the far post. 

Within two minutes it was 2-0 
after an error by the visiting keeper, 
Sullivan pounced on the loose ball 
and rolled it to Charlie Rutter who 
intern found Brad Pitman inside the 
penalty box and the youngster 
smashed it home. 

With Rutter coming off at half 
time due to an ankle injury picked 
up at Middlezoy last week, Doug 
Whitfield, on loan from Shepton 
Beauchamp,came on at centre half 
to replace Adam Male who was 
pushed up to lead the line. 

Clutton, having the advantage of 
the wind, were soon on the attack 
and a high ball caused problems in 
the llminster area and with Jonny 
May looking to head clear, Chris 
May tried to punch the ball and 
cbut collided with his brother, got 
no distance and a Clutton striker 
hooked the ball home. 

llminster responded well and a 
quick throw in from Karl Davis 
found Adam Male who crossed for 
Jefferson to slot home from close 
range. 

Clutton tried to force their way 
back into the game and Chris May 
had to be at his best when pushing 
over a shot from deep, and also 
came out on top when faced with 
a one-on-one. 

With 75 minutes on the clock, Jef¬ 
ferson won a free kick 25 yards out 
and Adam Male hit a screamer that 
arrowed into the net. 

llminster secretray Andy Fish 
said: "Adam has been fantastic this 
season, playing in a number of dif¬ 
ferent positions, from centre half, 
midfield or in attack and has never 
let the side down - his team mates 
rushed to congratulate him after 
his wonder goal that was well de¬ 
served for another good display at 
centre half in the first half and in at¬ 
tack for the second." 

Next up for llminster, now un¬ 
beaten in five games at home, is 
Saturday's trip to face struggling 
Stockwood Green. 

llminster: Chris May, Luke Paul, 
Karl Davis, Adam Male, Jon May, 
Brad Pitman, Jack Male, Tom Sulli¬ 
van, Ben Pitman, Taylor Jefferson, 
Charlie Rutter. Subs used : Andre 
Anjos, Doug Whitfield,Richard 
Crabb. 

Berrow & Highbridge 1 
Combe St Nicholas 2 

Division One (West) 

IT'S been a tough start to the sea¬ 
son for Combe as they look to re¬ 
build after a host of departures in 
the Summer. 

But the Saints put an eight-game 
winless run behind them with a fine 
win on the road. 

Having scored just once in their 
last five outings the omens didn't 
look good for the visitors but they 
carried on from last week's en- 
courging penalty shoot-out defeat 
in the cup and took the lead 
against the wind through Ross 
Fanyinka. 

A Warren Gabbidon penalty 
made it 2-0 before s dubious spot 
kick at the other end provided the 
hosts with their consolation. 

Joint manager Neil Holt picked 


out Kamil Wilk as his MoM. 

Combe have no fixture on Satur¬ 
day. 

SOMERSET INTERMEDIATE CUP 

Round Two (last 64) 

ON paper Merriott Dynamos had 
the biggest ask and were beaten 5- 
0 at Peasedown Albion, currently 
flying high in the Mid Somerset 
League Division One. 

llminster Colts are safely through 
after a 3-2 win at Saltford Reserves 
while Shepton Beauchamp Re¬ 
serves and Forton Rangers are both 
out after defeats against Pen Mill 
Athletic (5-2) and Brhoden United 
(2-1) respectively. Cam Galloway 
and Tom Brister netted for Shepton 
with Lee Richardson bagging the 
Forton consolation. 

Meanwhile, a Max Patch goal 
couldn't save Perry Street Reserves 
as they were knocked out 4-1 at 
Worle Reserves. 

The other PSDL team to progress 
is Crewkerne Rangers who won 3-1 
at Evercreech Rovers thanks to 
strikes from Simon Denslow (2) and 
sub Ryan Forsey. 

PERRY STREET LEAGUE 

CORONATION CUP QF 

LAST season's runners-up Barring¬ 
ton booked their place in the last 
four with two goals apiece from 
Carl Lazenby and Sam Spurway - 
two headers - in a 4-0 win at South 
Petherton. Defender Spurway and 
George Miles were Yellow Ham¬ 
mers' manager Sid Brown's stand¬ 
out performers. 

Winsham Utd also breezed 
through after hammering visitors 
Netherbury 5-0 at Bakers field. 

The quarter finals between Chard 
United and Misterton and Merriott 
Rovers and Pymore were both 
postponed due to waterlogged 
pitches. 

Netherbury have been expelled 
from this season's Dorset Interme¬ 
diate cup after fielding an ineligible 
player in last week's first round vic¬ 
tory. 

DIVISION ONE CUP QF 

THERE were 10-goals at Halstock 
where the hosts reached the semi¬ 
finals with a 7-3 win over 
Hawkchurch Utd, finalists for the 
last two years. Mark Cawley (2), 


Chris Tanner (2), Mark Whitmarsh 
(2) and Steve Martin netted for Hal- 
stock who led 2-0 at the interval. 
Josh Short (2) and Jack Larcombe 
scored for the Hawks whose man¬ 
ager manager Martin Bright 
praised the performance of referee 
Ken Templeman. 

PREMIER 

THE only game played in the top di¬ 
vision saw still pointless Combe Re¬ 
serves thrashed 6-0 on their own 
Slades Cross turf by West & Middle 
Chinnock. 

Star of the show was Matt Harvey 
who struck four times with George 
Pitman and player-manager Tom 
Charles chipping with the others 
for the Chinns. 

DIVISION ONE 

CHARD Rangers opened their ac¬ 
count with a 1-1 draw against Up- 
lyme at Jocelyn Park. Alex 
Thompson netted for the Rangers. 

The points were shared at Nether¬ 
bury too where Waytown Hounds 
and Farway United battled out a 2- 
2 stalemate. 

Farway led 1-0 at the interval 
through a Billy Reed scorcher from 
the edge of the area. Hounds 
equalised throiugh Tom Rutland 
after the turnaround only for Jack 
Murrall to edge Farway back in 
front. 

But they couldn't hold on and the 
Hounds former Uplyme striker Dan 
Boot grabbed a second leveler. 

DIVISION TWO 

TWO goals apiece from Andy North 
and Jack Smith earned Dowlish & 
Donyatt a 4-1 win over struggling 
Winsham United Reserves who are 
still hunting their first league point 
of the season. Ian Hilton-Barrett 
scored the Winsh consolation. 

Kingsbury clinched their first 
three-point haul of the season with 
Jack French, Will Arkell, Nick Aggus 
and Dan Neate on target in a 4-1 
win over visitors South Petherton 
Reserves who are still looking to 
break their duck. Paul Dexter net¬ 
ted for Pethy whose Anthony Dex¬ 
ter also missed a penalty. 

Thorncombe are still unbeaten 
after a 3-1 win over Charmouth 
which ended the Robins' unbeaten 
start. 


Goals from Liam Male and James 
Tunnicliffe had the Thorns with 
their noses in front at the interval 
and Alex Clist smashed home 
scorcher to seal the win 10 minutes 
from time. 

Elsewhere, Combe A's struggles 
continued with a 6-0 home drub¬ 
bing by Forton Rangers Reserves. It 
was 0-0 at half time but the Peli¬ 
cans powered home with Jack Al¬ 
ford grabbing a hat trick and Eddie 
James, Brandon Webb and Conor 
Fielder the others. 

DIVISION THREE 

THE scheduled matches at Crewk¬ 
erne Rangers Res, Farway United 
Reserves and Lyme Regis Rovers 
were all postponed. 

This just left leaders llminster 
Town A and the visit by Netherbury 
Reserves. 

llminster Town A made it seven 
out of seven with a 3-1 win over 
Netherbury Reserves. 

Aj Carvell, Rob Belton and Kieron 
Manley scored for The Blues whose 
manager Ken Timson said: "We've 
started really well. We have a very 
young group of players, most of 
them played in my under 16s youth 
team last season, our oldest out¬ 
field player in the starting XI on Sat¬ 
urday was only 20."

Wind wins at Wadebridge! 


Local golfers battle the elements 


CRICKET ST THOMAS 

with Bert Robinson 
FORTY TWO seniors entered a 
three-man “all to score” event in 
the gloomy conditions last Monday. 

Scoring proved to be difficult in 
the conditions, and although the 
stableford points returns were well 
below normal, an exciting finish 
was witnessed as the first two sides 
registered similar scores, with the 
result being decided by virtue of 
the best back nine. 

Result: 1st Roger Stone; James 
Siabi & Bob White 91pts, 2nd James 
Hewitt; Bernie Skeels & George 
Wallace 91, 3rd Bob Barrow; Alan 
Davis & Trevor Smith 88. 

The early morning mist delayed 
the start of the 34-strong seniors' 
two-man Canadian Greensomes 
last Wednesday. 

Bob Rees & Chris Gingell led from 
start to finish and posted a fine 
score of 65.25. 

George Wallace & Roger Davis 
(69.50) were second and Barrie 
Heath & Frank Martin (71.62) were 
third. 

The bad weather forced the cancel¬ 
lation of the October qualifying 
medal on Friday. 

HONITON with Ann Desmoulins 
LAST week's Tuesday Mixed com¬ 
petition was a TEXAS SCRAMBLE 
with 28 players taking part. 


The winners were Stephani and 
Bob Barnes and Vicki and Barry 
Rogers who achieved a nett score of 
63.4. 

Runners up were Maureen and 
Laurie Tollemache and Sue and 
Paul Ritchie with 66.7. 

The wet weather played its part in 
last week’s Ladies competition, giv¬ 
ing rise to low scoring. 

The 20 who braved the conditions 
were rewarded with fast greens and 
slow, wet fairways but as this was 
the second part of the Del Cup, a 36- 
hole Stableford played over two 
days, those who had entered it felt 
they had to play whatever the con¬ 
ditions. 

The winner was Janet Hughes, 
r/u Henrietta Bradshaw, 3rd Lesley 
Farley, 4th Elizabeth Ward, 
5th Penny Blackburn. 

Silver Division Stableford winner 
on the day was Henrietta Brad¬ 
shaw with 34 points, 2nd Janet 
Hughes (32), 3rd Vicky Rogers (30). 

Bronze 1 winner was Lesley Far¬ 
ley (31), 2nd Penny Blackburn (25). 
Bronze 2 winner was Cathy Pawley 
with 32, 2nd Janet Portlock (29). 

The knockout matchplay 
CHRISTOPHER CUP - an event for 
those who have never won a cup at 
Honiton, was completed last week 
with the winner being Cathy Paw¬ 
ley who beat Janet Hughes in the 
final.

Breaming Baz beats the pack 


WITH the river high and more bad 
weather forecast, this week's match 
was switched to Dillington Pond. 

Baz Morgan enjoyed a nice day, 
catching a bream and skimmers for 
141b 5oz from peg 24. 

Adie Bishop was second of the 
dozen competitors with loads of small 
fish for 111b 15ozfrom peg 6 and Jamie 
Rich was third with two skimmers plus 


lots of roach for 81b 9oz from peg 14.

with 61b 15oz from peg 9 and John 
Dursley with 51b 9oz from peg 18. 

The rescheduled round two of the 
VES Winter League is on Sunday, the 
draw will be at Ilminster Bowling Club 
between 8.30 and 9am with breakfast 
at 8am Names to Rob Cox please. 


Wadebridge 17 Chard 12 

Western Counties West 
IN monsoon conditions Chard 
played with the elements in the first 
half of Saturday's long trip to Corn¬ 
wall. 

Very good carries and ball reten¬ 
tion by the Chard pack meant that 
they had the majority of possession 
in the opening period even though 
territorially most of the play was in 
their own half. 

The strength of the wind meant 
that attempting to kick out of de¬ 
fence was not an option. The Chard 
scrum was solid and the players 
looked confident with the ball in 
hand. 

A high tackle from player/coach 
Jim Wagstaff gave away a penalty 
which Wadebridge kicked to touch. 
The resulting line out was won and 
they drove over the try line to score 
the only points in the first half and 
with the try being converted Wade¬ 
bridge led 7-0 at the break 

With the strong wind now behind 
them. Chard were hopefully that this 
would be to their advantage. 

However, the ball was spilt in the 
wet and windy conditions and Wade¬ 
bridge broke down the left and 
scored a second try which gave 
them a 12-0. 

Chard came back strongly with 
good scrum power and ball reten¬ 
tion and Joe Mainwaring powered 
over for an unconverted try. 

All Chard needed to do was use the 
wind and play percentage rugby, but 
Wadebridge counter attacked for an 
unconverted try in the corner and 
Chard now trailed 17-5. 

With five minutes remaining Chard 
deserved to rescue something from 
the game. 

Terrific performances from all the 
Chard players, especially flanker 
Jason Wright and hooker Mainwar¬ 


ing, put pressure on the Wadebridge 
defence and a quick tap from Bill 
Biss saw him break through to score 
under the posts. Charlie Roberts 
kicked the conversion to secure a 
losing bonus point which was the 
least Chard deserved in this battle. 

An encouraging display by the 
Chard side in horrendous conditions 
after their long journey to Cornwall. 

Next Saturday Chard have a home 
match against second-placed ST 
AUSTELL (3pm). 

Chard 2nd 12 Minehead 2nd 13 

Somerset Two South 
WITH so many injury and unavailabil¬ 
ity issues Chard were forced to call 
off the 3rd xv match at Midsomer 
Norton because so many of the play¬ 
ers were needed for this game. 

With the advantage of the wind in 
the first half. Chard had most of the 
play and scored two Billy Vernon 
tries - one of which was converted. 

Vernon nearly got another but was 
deemed to have touched down be¬ 
yond the dead ball area and Chard 
led 12-0 at the interval 

Despite fielding a makeshift side 
several players stood out for Chard, 
notably Harry Miller in the second 
row, flanker Luke Carslake and scrum 
half Jim Grosney. 

But Minehead had a much heavier 
pack and this resulted in them win¬ 
ning a lot of ball in the set piece and 
they got back into the game with 
two unconverted tries to cut the ad¬ 
vantage to 12-10 

In the last minute of normal time 
Minehead kicked a penalty to take a 
one point lead. Chard could have 
snatched a win in injury time with a 
penalty but a difficult kick against a 
gale force wind just fell short. 

Next Saturday Chard 2nd xv are 
away at YEOVIL and the 3rd xv are at 
home to MINEHEAD. 


netball honiton & dist 

Flamingos stand tall 

THE blustery winds did not deter Honiton Net- 
ball League last Monday with all scheduled 
games going ahead. 

Division One leaders Flamingos met Pan¬ 
thers. From the offset. Flamingos took the lead 
led by Karen Hall's accurate shooting and main¬ 
tained their lead throughout winning 35-16 de¬ 
spite an excellent display from Panthers' GD 
Anna Benson. 

There was a close encounter between TNC 
Otters and Sidmouth Chicks. Anna Burleigh 
played well as Otters' WD while Emily Rudolf 
stood out for the Chicks' who never gave up 
and picked up a point from a 27-23 defeat. 

Blackdown and Sidmouth Toucans were 
evenly matched in the first two quarters. How¬ 
ever, Toucans stormed ahead in the third quar¬ 
ter scoring a goal-a-minute with some excellent 
shooting from GA Anna Rowson to win 26-11 
despite some hard work from Rachel Hopkins. 

Hot Shots dominated against High Tide - scor¬ 
ing 12 goals in the first 12 minutes with some 
impressive interceptions from Shots' WD Lucy 
Bekinska. Lauren Taylor at GA was The Tide's 
POTM but they went down 36 - 11. 

In Division Two, Beer Blazers defeated Signs 
South West 37-27. Michaela Sydenham, SSW's 
GK commended the opposition's team on their 
play whilst Beer's captain Rosie Bennett, 
praised the friendliness of their opponents. 

Opponents Kirstie Dowle (SSW's GD) and 
Gemma Langham (Blazers' GA) picked up the 
POTM awards. 

The final game saw Otter Valley beat Jurassics 
23-6. Alice Quick secured the POTM award for 
Otter Valley and Jurassics' youngest player, 
Merania Katene, scooped the POTM award at 
GK.

AXE VALLEY RUNNERS with Dave Mutter 
FIVE AVRs travelled along the coast to take part 
in the GREAT SOUTH RUN at Portsmouth. More 
than 20,000 runners took part, making it the UK's 
biggest 10-mile race. 

Thankfully the worst of Storm Brian, which had 
cancelled Saturday's 5k and fun-run, was over. 
First AVR home was Carol Austin 1,918th, 17.41 
followed by Angela Kerr in 4,078th, 1:25.32. Chris 
and Yvette Hill ran together to finish joint 8,298th 
in 1:38.03 with Martin Kerr 11,096th in 1:46.53. 

Stuart Duckworth won the latest SEATON 
PARKRUN in 19:11, with James Campbell of 
Purbeck Runners 2nd, 19:46 and AVR’s Matt 
Hewer 3rd, 20:26. Eleanor Wood of AVR was the 
first lady, 7th overall in 22:53. 

CHARD ROAD RUNNERS with Paul Masters 
BERNIE Genge and Lisa Mather set off to ABING¬ 
DON for the pancake flat road marathon that 
draws runners from far and wide to gain fast 
times. 

The pair finished in 3h 42m 11s which earned 
Lisa a GFA qualifying time for London 2019. 


Stagger, Stumble and storm! 

Meanwhile, Wayne Loveridge finished fourth in 
a time of 2h03m 16s in the Exmoor-based 16-mile 
HILLY TRAIL race which included over 3,750ft of 
elevation. 

HONITON RUNNING CLUB with Judy Davey 
SEVEN members took the trip to Minehead to take 
part in the 20th anniversary of the EXMOOR 
STAGGER or Stumble. 

Storm Brian was still prevalent albeit just his 
tail. It didn’t feel like that as runners got closer to 
the highest point in Somerset, Dunkery Beacon. 

The 16-mile race, with an ascent of over 3600 feet, 
was won by James Baker in lhr 54 min. Alasdair 
Moffett was the first back for HRC 46th 2:28. 

Other club results; Steve Davey 72nd 2:39, 

Richard Harris 81st 2:45, Judy Davey 88th 2:47 (cat¬ 
egory prize), Mark Dallyn 92nd 2:49, Pippa Westall 
116th 2:58. There were 202 finishers. 

Howard Bidmead tackled the 10k STUMBLE 
which was won by Ben Tull in 40 min 12 secs with 
Howard 22nd in 54min (2nd in his age cat). There 
were 97 finishers.

Dening at the double 

West Dorset A 0 
Chard A 2 

A HARVEY Dening 
brace inside the open¬ 
ing 25 minutes led 
Chard to a rare win in 
wet and blustery condi¬ 
tions at Sir John Colfox 
School last Saturday. 

West Dorset rallied 
and were awarded a 
penalty flick but this 
was put wide. 

The first quarter hour 
of the second half be¬ 
longed to West Dorset 
who hit the post and 
keeper Richard Green 
had to make some 
scrambling saves. 

The game gave Chard 
the chance to introduce 
two of their younger 
members, Ben McElroy 
and Jacob Boobyer who 
both acquitted them¬ 
selves well.

Glovers call for Insight 


THE news that Yeovil Town have called in football consul¬ 
tant Mark Palmer of Insight 63 Ltd to study how the Glovers 
can move forward on and off the field could not be more 
timely. 

Despite the definite encourage- ment of the last two on-the- 
field dis- plays, no-one can hide the fact that on the last two 
‘home Saturdays’ Yeovil have attracted the poorest gates in 
the entire Football League. 

Not even the draw for the first round of the Emirates FA 
Cup could arouse much enthusiasm. 

Southend, from League One, may not be setting that divi¬ 
sion alight but they will travel to Somerset in early Novem¬ 
ber as firm favourites to progress. “Things ain’t what they 
used to be”, as the old song says. 

Throughout their non-League history the big clubs quaked 
when they were drawn against Yeovil, and they had cause 
to worry. 

By the time the Glovers finally arrived in the Football 
League themselves they had knocked 20 of the bigger boys 
out of the Cup - a record for a non-League side that will 
surely never be beaten. 

Before Nick Crittenden got the goal against Blackpool in 
December 2000 that earned the team the vie- tory to chalk 
up the 20th giant- killing, this season’s visitors had twice 
been bundled out of the Cup by the Glovers. 

In the 1958-59 season the Shrimpers came to the old Huish 
ground as one of the top teams in the Third Division. Yeovil 
had held them to a goal-less draw on their own Roots Hall 
ground in a match the underdogs should have won easily, 
but justice was done in the midweek replay when Johnny 
Den- nis got the only goal of the game from a Johnny McKay 
corner. The two ties were watched by a total of 23,000 fans. 

Southend were near the bottom of Division Three when 
they headed back to Huish looking for revenge. Again they 
were beaten 1-0, the goal coming from Terry Foley, who still 
follows the club’s affairs from his Portsmouth home. 

This win caught the imagination of some of the national 
press with one Sunday ’paper hailing Yeovil as “the most 
gentlemanly non-League team in the Cup”. 

That season the Glovers went on to knock out Crystal 
Palace, who were later promoted to Division Two. 

There was a third Cup meeting to come with Southend in 
1982. With local hero Andy Bell having scored in the two 
matches that knocked out Bognor Regis and Chesham, 
Yeovil were hoping to complete an FA Cup treble over 
Southend, but they lost 3-0 away from home and it was not 
until the 88th minute that the Glovers had a clear chance. 

Southend, now in the lower half of League One, are not ex¬ 
pected to take Huish Park by storm, and maybe the visit of 



Chelsea under- 21s this coming Wednesday in the Checka- 
trade Trophy will provide more excitement. 

Manager Darren Way takes this competition seriously and 
with a 3-1 victory against Exeter City under their belts, 
hopes his squad can head towards the quarter-finals for the 
second successive season. 

The third team in this group is Plymouth Argyle who will 
be head- ing to Huish Park at the end of November. 

So, Mr Palmer comes into a ter- rific heritage at Yeovil 
hoping to bring revival. He says he will look into every as¬ 
pect and make sugges- tions to owners John Fry and Nor¬ 
man Hayward who, in recent seasons, have had their own 
devel- opment plans for the Huish Park facilities knocked 
on the head by planners. 

The terrace talk is that Messrs Fry and Hayward might be 
ready to sell out, especially having borne all the criticism 
that has come their way. But their own attempts to look for 
big financial help have not produced fruit. Will Mr Palmer’s 
organisation fare any better? Time will tell.

Away win double for Holyrood hockey teams 



■ VICTORIES: Holyrood Academy's Year 8 and Year 11 hockey teams have both 
recently chalked up impressive away wins. The youngster won 4-0 on the 3G 
surface at Huish Episcopi with Amy Bristow scoring all four including three in 
a 10-minute second half purple-patch. Meanwhile, a superb Hannah Eke goal 
earned the year 11s a 1-0 win at Preston for their third league triumph of the sea¬ 
son.
