Other news

In May, South Somerset District Council held an on-line consultation on our high street, more will follow on this however it is exciting to note that there was a high number of residents who responded to the consultation.

Wincanton Community Fridge and Fridge Freezer continues with its food share scheme supported by the COOP and Morrisons to reduce food waste for all to use. Coming soon a larder for dried goods, if you like our community fridge page you will receive updates on what is in the fridges and freezer and when the larder comes online.

The Community fridges and freezer are based in Cole’s yard which is open daily so check out the opening times and come to see what is available `free’ to all.

June will see many initiatives that were held back due to COVID go live on our High Street, these include the Repair Café which will open in Coles Yard, an amazing offer from One Planet Wincanton and on the 26th June Wincanton Town Festival Market goes live at Clementina’s 12-9pm.
