We are so excited to be starting a group in Watchet this week on Wednesday 17th October. Thanks to the players of the the National Lottery and an Awards for All grant.
This group has been in the planning for some while since the lovely Hazel Barron of the Somerset Mental Wellbeing Service suggested that we might like to come to West Somerset.
Everytime we have visited since we have been overwhelmed by the welcome and wealth of community goodness that’s going in Watchet. It seems like every time we spoke to someone we found another project and another person to talk to.
Gill Hall of Watchet Roots has supported us from the start and we hope we can help to keep the community veg patch lovely and improve the facilities for the community there.
What seemed like the whole Onion Collective threw ideas at me when I visited them. I’ve still got a bit of a headache from their enthusiasm, special thanks to Georgie for her time and encouragement.
We have also had the support and encouragement of the Town Council in the shape of Councillor Loretta Whitlor and Admin Assistant Harriet Gibbard.
Can’t wait to get started in this awesome community which is one of the most in need in Somerset.
