Scammers are out - posing as B.T. Engineers. They have phoned several people in the village this week saying you need to do something on your computer. DO NOT accept what they say. Replace the phone. B.T. Will NEVER ask to take control of your computer or ask for passwords.

This also applies with any company phoning you.


(Presented at the Parish Council meeting on Monday 13th November)

Eight people from West Somerset were among over 35 individuals and couples from across Somerset to be awarded for their community work. Five were awarded in a ceremony by the Chairman of Somerset County Council but Philip was not available and will receive his award locally.

Philip Brimson of Holford accepted the role of Clerk of the Parish Council in 1993 and served it successfully until his retirement earlier this year.

His citation said “Unquestionably dedicated and informed, Philip has an unassuming presence and his knowledge has kept our Parish Council at ease in decision making for a quarter of a century.

He is a very well known and respected member of our Parish and is well worthy of this award.”
