You may well remember Marnie Doble, our former South Petherton librarian. She’s just had her first book published, and it’s already topped the sales charts on Amazon!  Encouraged by winning the David Hall poetry competition last year, Marnie turned to writing in earnest and the result is ‘Fractured – poems of love and desire’,  a collection of writings drawn from a background of extraordinary life experiences.  It’s the perfect gift for a loved one and is available as a Kindle download from www.amazon.co.uk priced at just £1.93.  Well done Marnie.

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 will (one day) have their own site Your comments about the current content of the 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.
