WELCOME and Bienvenue to my website.

This site is designed to serve and promote the communities comprising South Petherton, Over Stratton, Compton Durville and all the small hamlets amongst and between these larger groups of houses. I run it as a private individual now - it has nothing to do with the Parish Council who now run their own site. Your comments about the current content of this site are welcome. If there’s anything you think should be included; if you have any events or plans that you or your group want to publicise or even a photograph - anything of local interest - just email it to me.

Thanks for your support    Tony Charman (Webmaster)

Performance Evening.

It's a great evening full of extraordinary skill, talent and variety - and it doesn't cost the earth - just £2 audience and £1 performers to cover the cost of heating and lighting the hall.
