Ruishton Weather
It's been a very wet year
Ruishton has it's own Weather Station site. The weather monitor is based in the village and measures a number of weather related values, such as temperatures, dew point, wind etc.
This is a great site and I'm sure it will be a great place to get data for a school science project.

Anyone for Tug of War?

Late Summer, I received an email from Creech Parish Council asking if Ruishton would be interested in joining other local parishes in a Tug of War competition sometime next summer … to be held across the Rive Tone !

I put this to the Parish Council who were supportive, I like the idea as it has potential.
There could be a Hog Roast and other activities.

If you are interested in being part of a team or perhaps coaching those interested, please email or even phone me : [email protected] 07527952953

SOMERSET COUNCIL - WEST are the only committee with the authority to approve or decline planning applications, your parish council can only express an opinion, this is why it is important that, if there is an application you feel strongly about, you need to attend the Planning Committee – West meetings
