Many of you will have watched us perform our Mummers Play, St George and the Dragon, at the Pilton Wassail this year. We hope it may have inspired some of you to join us and be part of a group who have a lot of fun.

Our AGM is on Thursday 6th April at 7.30 pm in the Winding Lake room of the Village Hall. Our main agenda item is “What next?” followed by watching the video of St George and the Dragon, when we performed it at John and Sandra Howe’s ‘Bon Voyage’ in February.

We look forward to meeting up again with current, past and potential new Players (both novice and experienced). No commitment required from potential new Players, please just come and meet the group.

If having a Spring clear out over the Easter holidays, please spare a thought for Pilton Show. It’s never too early to donate items for the infamous Emporium or Children’s stalls, as there is storage space available. If you are moving house, or just wanting to clear space, we can take small boxed items at this stage but cannot accept larger furniture or books until July at the earliest, preferably August. Please contact Ruth Eavis (890607) or Jenny de Gex (890465). Please consider stallholders and make sure all donated goods are in good condition: no chipped or cracked china, please. All electrical goods must be in safe working order.

A full list of stallholders for your kind donations will appear in July Roundabout. Pilton Show Committee

Village Agent


Avon and Somerset Police have launched a new text number to combat rural crime: 81819.
“We want information about any suspicious or potential criminal activity in your area, details of people/vehicles seen behaving suspiciously, potentially stolen goods or livestock being offered for sale to the public or at markets” Please add the number to your contact list.

Unwanted telephone calls
Register with your telephone provider for their call barring service, also call the Telephone Preference Service on 0345 0700707 to register with them.
These services do not have 100% success but they may help filter some of the calls that are bothering vast numbers of residents lately. Some telephones that are now on the market have a “Call Guardian” feature, this means the phone can intercept all calls from people not on the contact list. A virtual assistant asks unrecognised callers to announce their name prior to being connected, and users can then decide to accept or reject the call; if they reject it, that number is stored so it is blocked automatically if they call again.

Please do contact me about the above or anything that is causing you distress or worry. I may be able to help.

There will NOT be a Festival Run in 2017


The Festival Run Organizing Committee has decided to take a rest in 2017, and with new energy to have a Run in 2018 , either in October 2018 or perhaps earlier in the Summer (given that there will not be a Festival that year). We would like to thank all of you who volunteered to make the Run such a success last October, and look forward to seeing you again in 2018.
