Following the debacle of last evening, today another meeting, the monthly meeting of Shepton 21 the local regeneration partnership.
Much better news to report.
The Digital Arts Festival concluded on Saturday evening, it was very clear that this exciting event was extremely successful, young and old took part, I could spend a long time on this one, but it is better for you to visit their website on http://www.sheptondigitalarts.co.uk/
The work continues on the new BMX track at the West Shepton Playing Fields, again their steering group has raised £50,000 for the track and new pieces of skateboard equipment. This multi agency project have done a great job for more visit http://ypsteeringgroup.blogspot.com
The new Shepton Amateur Gardening Group are holding their first meeting on Monday 9th November at Kilver Court at 7.00pm, all are welcome.
The Facelift Project, this is a project that grant aid shopkeepers to improve their buildings in the Town Centre, Number 59 and 69 High Street have had a grant, this work compliments the Townscape Heritage Initiative visit their site http://www.sheptonthi.co.uk/site/
The Tourist Information Centre http://www.sheptonmallet-touristinfocentre.co.uk/ is working extremely hard raising money to help fill the gap in their finances following Mendip District Council cuts, they have a couple of schemes you may be interested in; they have the Shepton Calenders and are running a Christmas draw, it is a hamper that will contain many goodies, including a mulberry bag and other donations from Sheptons quality shops, Shepton retail community supporting our Tourist Information Centre.
On another note, another disappointing evening for Liverpool Football Club, only getting a draw in Lyon, a beautiful goal by Ryan Babel, not enough (depression), looks increasingly likely that we will not progress this year from the group stage, when we walk through the storm, we'll hold head up high.
