A coach party of 44 members from Crewkerne & District U3A visited Highgrove House, the Gloucestershire home of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall. The group enjoyed the visit and were able to see that the Prince’s vision was evident everywhere, while walking through the gardens. Maggie Hewson of Crewkerne U3A said: “The Prince works closely with his gardeners and no decisions are made without him being consulted. Walking around the gardens was an absolute joy and we are hoping to organise a return visit.”

The annual Open Day at Townsend Cemetery takes place on Sunday September 16th from 1 pm until 4 pm. The event is organised by the Crewkerne & West Crewkerne Joint Burial Committee. It provides the ideal opportunity to look around the chapel and tranquil grounds of the cemetery which was established in 1874. This year’s Open Day offers two interesting talks. The first one at 2.30 pm by Crewkerne Town Council clerk Peter Davidson will show how the burial records reveal the changes to the way of life since Victorian times. Local funeral director, Tracey Warren of Stoodley & Son, a popular speaker at this event, will give a talk and guided tour, pointing out some of the notable graves in the cemetery and explaining how they give an insight into Crewkerne’s social history. The historic burial registers will be available for visitors to look through and the town clerk will be happy to assist anyone who wants to carry out family history research.
