An insight into rural life.
AS A VILLAGE LETS SUPPORT THE COURAGE OF OUR POSTMAN AS HE HAS SUPPORTED US THROUGHOUT COVID AND BEYOND.
From 1st to 11th October 2021, our much beloved Postman Ian Maclachlan, will begin the toughest delivery of his life …………… 250 km. Not around our beautiful Somerset village, but across the Sahara Desert !
Billed as “The Toughest Footrace on Earth” it’s equivalent to a marathon a day for 7 days, in extreme conditions. He will carry his 7 days of rations and bedding on his back.
Ian tells Tiggi about the race, its challenges and the charity he is raising funds for – “Hounds for Heroes” and how donations can be made.
Tiggi takes a retrospective look at our community shop one year on. With personal loss, exhilaration & challenges at its core.
2020 saw lots of early excitement, but then lockdown hit us for the first time.
This is the story of a community who came together in a crisis and have learnt to go forward with a new understanding.
Lori Tomms, Landlady of The Strawberry Special, describes their recent renovations, all geared to safeguarding customers and staff alike.
Everything is directed toward the doors re-opening as soon as the Government says GO!
Tiggi catches Chris Seager on the move for a catch up.
Seagers are facing the limitations of Brexit, a wet February, followed by arguably the hottest months of April and May on record.
To top everything, along came Covid-19 with the massive restrictions enforced by government. How are they coping right now?
After what was arguably the hottest May on record, Tiggi talks to local natural historian, Peter Bright. She learns about the impact of Covid-19 on flora and fauna, and the effect it has had on our wildlife.
Mary Woodhouse a Draycott resident for over 70 years, tells Tiggi how isolation really feels.
