There is a Batik course running
Weekly classes are now available at Paulton Village Hall to learn the innovative Total Release Experience (TRE). TRE is an empowering 'No Talking' physical practice for the release of symptoms from stress, anxiety and trauma. Clients learn to evoke their body's natural tremor mechanism (just like animals) in a controlled and sustained way. Releasing deep held tensions from the body's core can bring effective and immediate relief returning the body back to a more calm and relaxed state. Ideal for IBS, insomnia, headaches aches and pains and fibromyalgia.
Whether releasing from day to day stress or deeper held traumas anyone can benefit from the practice. The TRE UK team teach the six session course in a safe and supportive environment during which time clients are encouraged to start home practice. TRE UK provide ongoing support as and when needed.
The sessions are suitable for all, elderly, disabled, young people over the age of 11, adults
TRE UK also hold workshops at weekends around the country, including Somerset.
Weekly sessions are available with practitioner Deborah Maddison on Monday evenings at 7:30pm and Friday mornings at 11am in the Meeting Room at Paulton Village Hall. Pre booking essential.

TO INTRODUCE ATTRACTIONS OF THE SOMER VALLEY
Walking enthusiasts and local residents are urged to keep September 18th this year free for a Walking Festival which will celebrate the landscape and history of the Somer Valley, around Radstock ,Paulton and Peasedown. Two local ramblers groups are teaming up with Radstock Museum ,Radstock’s Victoria Hall and Bath and NE Somerset Council to present a programme of walks of varying lengths , starting from the Hall ..The walks will take local residents and visitors through some of the most interesting features of the former Somerset coalfield, including the remains of the canals and railways which transported coal from the mines.
Mendip Ramblers will be leading two walks of approximately six miles through the Kilmersdon and Mells area while Norton Radstock Ramblers will be putting on a twelve mile hike around the whole valley to the north of Radstock and a shorter walk to visit the Paulton Basin where volunteers are restoring the Somerset Coal Canal. There will also be an easy family walk along the Greenway to Midsomer North South station, which is also being restored.
On the evening before the walks the Museum will host a talk on the local industrial heritage.
John Bull, BANES Councillor for Paulton , who chairs the organising committee said: The Somer Valley is a beautiful area which deserves to be better appreciated for its attractive landscape and the contribution it has made to Britain’s industrial history. These walks will be free and open to everyone and will be of interest to local residents and visitors alike. I am grateful to the local organisations and BANES for contributing their expertise and time to this exciting programme.’
More details of the Festival will be published during the summer and there will be an opportunity for volunteers to help with organising the programme on the day. Anyone who can find time to help should contact David Dixon at The Hollies, Midsomer Norton ( telephone or email dave_dixon@BATHNES.gov.uk.

As you may know, we’ve been preparing for Paulton’s Party in the Park since November last year. Like us, we know, everybody in Paulton was looking forward to another successful event.
However, it has now come to our attention that there are three obstacles preventing us from holding this year’s Party in the Park.
· New premises licensing rules
· Committee Insurance Liability
· Lack of police presence
We very much appreciate that this decision to cancel the event is disappointing. However, we are working to overcome these problems and to hold Paulton’s Party in the Park on Saturday 1st July 2017.

A 'Hello' from.......................................
Professional Face/ Body Art Painter
(just moved to Paulton)
I'm an ex-teacher but now professional face & body painter, having won most of the UK face competitions, titles and awards as well as body ones over the last 15 years.
I am mainly hired by agencies, malls, parties and events of all sizes from fetes and festivals to the Hong Kong Rugby 7's World Championships. For years I was the only face-painter in the UK hired full-time by an attraction to paint daily, which helped me become one of the fastest quality painters in the country. I also teach the art-form to schools/ groups, and in colleges or to other professional painters around the country.
I've held a clear CRB/ DBS since 2000, and have Full Public Liability Insurance specifically for face & body art with Equity the Performer's Union. I only use top quality cosmetic paints & glitters (not cheap stuff like Snazaroo), and follow the strict Health, Safety & hygiene guidelines of the FACE association www.facepaintingassociation.com. I'm also one of their rare Level 2 Advanced painters & a committee member helping raise standards in the industry.
Anyway - I'm here, I would be grateful if you could keep me in mind for any events. I'm happy to provide artwork/ photos for anything I work at, and as I often paint in clubs and festivals as well as at kids events, have designs that appeal to all ages. Here are some of my on-normal-job photos, all faces which would take 3 minutes or less.

Host for the evening, David Trethewey, BANES
Divisional Director: Strategy & Performance, quoted from Charlie’s nomination, “A quietly confident 15-year-old young man has engaged with adult neighbours to improve their environment by bringing whatever skills and time they have to a collaborative project that benefits them all. The elderly and infirm, and those living alone have all been involved. They have all become a community”

The Carers Centre
If you look after someone, who looks after you?
The Carers’ Centre is a local charity based in Radstock. We help unpaid carers, who give their time and energy to look after friends and family members who need extra support day to day. This could be an elderly parent, a child living with a disability, a partner with a long-term illness. There are more than 20,000 carers in Bath & North East Somerset alone and we currently work with over 4000, from as young as 18 right up to 85 and beyond.
We know that caring can be rewarding, but it can also be tiring, stressful and lonely, with many carers not knowing where they can turn for help. We are here make sure carers have the support they need to manage their caring role, as well as opportunities to enjoy life alongside caring. We offer expert advice, a listening ear, breaks from caring and much more.
If you look after someone, please do contact us on 0800 0388 885 and we can talk to you about how we can help. You can also email us firstname.lastname@example.org
