Exciting Opportunity for Would-Be

Hedge Layers!

The Somerset Hedge Group is delighted to offer a great opportunity to gain training in traditional hedge laying, FOR FREE!

Set within the stunning Quantocks AONB, the one day course, led by qualified trainers, is being held on two dates: Saturday 24th September near Fiddington and Saturday 8th October near Crowcombe Heathfield.

Funded by West Somerset Council’s Land Management & Skills Scheme, the training days are open to anyone who would like to learn about and develop hedge laying skills.

Heather Harley, Chair of the Somerset Hedge Group said “We are delighted to offer this exciting opportunity for skilled, professional hedge layers to pass on their knowledge to farmers, land owners, students, conservation volunteers or anyone who would like to receive training in this traditional craft.

We particularly welcome younger people, the hedge layers of the future. In fact this training can also be used to contribute to the Federation of Young Farmers Club’s Skills for Life Award.

The training days will culminate in the opportunity for participants to put their training into practice by entering our hedge laying competition which will be held in November. This will be a superb opportunity to meet other hedge layers, both novice and experienced in the beautiful Quantocks landscape.”

Booking is essential to guarantee a space. To book, please contact Tony Serjeant on 01823 358143 or afserjeant@somerset.gov.uk.  For more information ring George Pidgeon on 07970 644631.

Williton Hospital Bed Closures

The Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group has decided to close 6 stroke beds at Williton hospital as a result of the perceived success of Early Supported Discharge (ESD) of patients.  The League of Friends of the hospital are bitterly opposed to this action at a time when hospital beds are badly needed with winter approaching and bed blocking at Musgrove Park Hospital.  We are intending to fight this decision and are asking all those who care about patients and the availability of beds for those in need to support us in our campaign to save these beds. I can be contacted either by email or by letter care of the hospital

Thank you
