Donations for London

Message from Hopkins Concrete

“Dear All

Just to let everybody know that we have a fantastic response for donations over the last two days and I think it’s fair to say we are full. Please could we ask that unless you have already pre-arranged a drop off on Monday that you refrain from dropping off anything else.

The centres in London have had a lot of problems in sorting through what has turned up and this is why they can’t accept any more immediately. We will be sorting the donations from Wincanton and the surrounding towns and villages so that when it is delivered, it has been sorted and boxed ready to go to those who need it. We will get it to them as soon as they can take it and will store it safely until that time.

If there is anything that they are unable to accept due to people’s amazing generosity, we will ensure that it goes to others that are in desperate need of some help.

We would like to thank everybody for their support for this worthwhile cause.”

 bowls 2


We are thinking of starting an Indoor bowling club in the Village Hall from September through the winter. It will be twice a month on a night to be arranged to try and suit all. As you probably know Bowls is a very laid-back game and virtually anyone can play it.

We are looking to get enough people to make up 4/6 teams of 6 players making a total of between 24 & 36 members. As you know we have done a lot of work in the hall for the benefit of ALL Villagers so it would be good to see a good response and let’s make use of probably the BEST village hall in the area, we need to make money to keep it running.

Please have a think about having a go and reply ASAP to

The evening of the meetings will include snacks and drinks to make it a good social night out through the cold winter months.

Look forward to your replies.

For adoption – Charlie the Labrador Cross

Image may contain: dog and outdoorCHARLIE is a 6 year old male – very handsome – Labrador cross.
He is currently fostered in Somerset and can be visited.

CHARLIE is very loving and soon becomes devoted to his carer. He will make someone a very faithful and loyal companion.

CHARLIE is good with cats and most dogs (although he prefers female dogs)

His ideal home would be a quiet household (no young children) with experienced owners, either as an only dog or with another female dog.

CHARLIE was saved from the public shelter in a terrible state. Thanks to the amazing dedication and care of the clinic staff CHARLIE made an incredible recovery. Image may contain: dog
