When our lovely village was flooded in 2000 villagers were most grateful to receive help from a Flood Relief Fund. Not only were there donations from friends and neighbours but from other communities as well. Roger Hill, who as a Church Warden and after consultation with the Vicar and Treasurer of St Mary’s Church has arranged with shops in the village to be collection points for donations to The Somerset Emergency Flood Relief Fund. The Collection process has already begun and we know that times have been tough but please give, even a small amount to this collection as many of us know how awful flooding is, even for a short while, let alone for weeks as has been the case in Somerset.
