Village Agent February update

It can be tough in the cold and dark months to get motivated to exercise – what do you do to Get Outside in Somerset?

For inspiration, why not visit The site is packed with activities and ideas to help you to get outside.

You can also join the Facebook group where people from across Somerset share local tips and ideas and to take part in the chat!

You might find a new passion, meet new friends, take up a new hobby! We’re blessed in Somerset with an abundance of places to go, and many are free! From walking through our beautiful nature reserves to enjoying our town parks, or for the more adventurous, exploring our magnificent hills. There really is something for every age and ability. If you struggle to get outside in Somerset, contact your local Village Agent who could find a community solution to help you!

Carers Groups make a welcome return!

Carers in Somerset will be delighted to hear that many Carers groups are reopening. In the Taunton area they’re in Bishops Lydeard (Mount St), Taunton (Wellsprings Church) and Wellington (Bulford Community Centre).

If you look after someone else – family, friend or neighbour, our Carers hub is packed full of support, activities and training.

Not sure if you are a Carer? Call our advice line and make sure you have the right support for you and the person you look after! 0800 31 68 600 or text ‘Carer’ to 78070. Ask your Village Agent for information and ideas on supporting the person you care for so you can get to take a break and attend a group.

Can’t get to a Carers group? Wiveliscombe Talking Café is open again on Wednesdays for help and advice.
