New Creech St Michael Village Agent appointed 2013-05-22 12:02:25
Article received from Audrey Mansfield, Creech St Michael Village Agent   I am Audrey and I would like to introduce myself as your village agent. You may have seen my posters up in the village or maybe met me in the village or at the village hall, or heard of me by word of mouth.   I hope I will be a trusted and valuable support if needed. Village agents are employed by the Community Council of Somerset, and are sponsored by the big lottery and Bernard Herridge Charity.   The project was piloted in Gloucester 5 years ago and was so successful that 38 village agents are now employed in that County. In Somerset 15 Village agents are employed and further are being employed to cover a wide area of villages in Somerset.   My work as a village agent means I am a link between people in the village and the services and agencies that offer help and information that people may not have any knowledge about. It is a free and confidential service. Visits will be followed up if necessary by the specialists that provide the information. I will also check that it has been carried out successfully.   At present I work just 8 hours a week and the villages I work in are Creech St Michael, Ruishton, Thornfalcon and West Monkton, a population of over 6000. I can signpost you to many services from home safety to social care and pensions to housing and transport enquiries to fire precaution and falls prevention, volunteering and many more.   More information can be seen on our flyer for the Creech Village Agent.   Any information you need, I will do what I can to help you.   My contact information is 07870 577925 or amansfieldva@somerstercc.org.uk

The Global Village of Creech 2013-05-21 14:28:05
Article submitted by Eric Chown, Web Publicity   On the website we publish all sorts of information about local events, bus timetables, what's on at the village hall, club and group details all those things that residents need to know.  This is backed up by other features like a photo gallery, details of parish council activity and the organisations within the village. We have a direct news feed from the County Gazette and also post anything related to the village.   We tend to overlook that our local website also has the potential to be viewed and enjoyed by most of the English speaking world.   The feature that reaches out to this greater internet global village is the “Ask A Question” (AAQ) feature where anything related to the village, past or present, can be answered by anyone who can give details for the questioner.   Last year (2012) as a result of our AAQ section we were visited both on the internet and in person by the Australian descendants of a clerical family who were vicars here for much of the early 1800's – the brothers Henry and John Cresswell.  Henry was a notorious and outspoken speaker and as his potted history on this website shows must have been a very colourful man.  Loreen Chambers who very kindly submitted the history was also able to correct details about Henry and John for the list of incumbents at the church where the two brothers service had been 'merged' into one.  We have been able to put this error to right on the webpage.   Most recently another Australian AAQ enquirer on the web asked about his ancestors. A question about his Pocock family was answered and as a result he flew on a twelve day visit to this area. It appears the family were removed from Stoke St Gregory to Creech as they were deemed likely to be a charge on Stoke parish.   He toured the area around the two parishes, looking at churches and locations mentioned in his very extensive researches, taking photographs and videos which will form part of his Australian family history.  He visited Yeovil and Williton which also featured in many of the census and parish records he had collected. He said that he felt “very much at home here” and enjoyed all that he was able to see.   The story on how the Pococks came to Creech may feature on the website at a later date.   So if you need a question answered or can add to the knowledge of any enquiry on the website please feel free to contribute and who knows, you may be visited by a long lost relative.  If you feel that you computer skills are lacking we will help to put your story together to be shared in our global village.

Article submitted by Eric Chown, Web Publicity   Is spring here at last?   The sun is shining (at the moment) and the evenings are getting lighter.
