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


Ruishton Weather
Highest ever recorded temp. 35 degrees C On 13th August 2022
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.

This website is maintained on a voluntary basis by the residents of the parish of Ruishton, Thornfalcon and Henlade. If you are running a club or business or other organisation within the parish, then you are invited to be included in the website, but don't forget to often update your information.
