B&NES and Parish Councillors Support Oldest Business in Paulton

 

B&NES and Parish Councillors turned up in numbers to support the refurbishment of Taylors Clocks and Watches business in Paulton’s High Street. Lee Taylor who runs the shop commented”  The refit of the shop and showroom will allow us to show the clocks and watches to their best. The response over this weekend has been quite staggering in terms of sales and number of visitors. There clearly is a real interest in high quality antique clocks”

  B&NES Councillors John Bull and Liz Hardman(Paulton) attended as did Les Keogh (High Littleton)Paulton Parish Councillors, Terry Bridgeman, Hugh Warren and Anne Lyons  (pictured)also  turned out in force to support this venture. Chair of Paulton Parish Council, Anne Lyons  said” It’s good to see a business like this thriving in Paulton. We think it is the longest surviving business in Paulton and we wish them every success”

Paulton Does Us Proud at the B&NES Community Awards

 

B&NES Community Awards is an opportunity to thank our volunteers who do such a good job in helping our local community.Last Thursday, a special commemorative event was held in the Guildhall to thank our local volunteers and Paulton volunteers were well represented.

In the Volunteer Team  of the Year, Laney Sandon James and husband Mark were nominated for their work with the homeless in Bath. Every Saturday afternoon, Laney and her husband Mark  make their way from Paulton to Bath, armed with warm clothes and  food for homeless people sleeping rough. If you’d like to make a donation or to help in any way, please contact them at: laneysandonjames@aol.com

Also nominated for the Volunteer Team  of the year was Pride in Paulton (PiP) which is a group of volunteers who are dedicated to improving the environment in Paulton. They do this by providing hanging baskets in the Summer and Christmas Trees in the winter and planting and caring for flowers throughout the village.

Nominated for Volunteer Leader of the Year was another Paulton resident, Julie Harrington. Julie does a huge amount of work for Paulton Brownies and has raised a considerable sum of money for Macmillan Cancer Support through coffee mornings.

Finally the Business in the Community Award included Tim Jennings formerly of Somer Bus. Tim has been instrumental in ensuring for the first time ever, a school bus runs from Paulton to Norton Hill School. He even drives the bus himself, although he is unofficially retired.

B&NES Councillor, Liz Hardman said “ it was such a wonderful evening to see all these volunteers who make such a difference to people’s lives. I  was so proud of our Paulton nominees, who are doing so much  for local people”

From our Junior School.....

Paulton Junior School are the newly crowned Somerset Football Champions. The team were representing BANES after winning the MSN Tournament and as such competed against the best 12 schools in Somerset at Bridgewater College

Building Update
We are due to be handed back our new extended hall on Monday 20th February (hence the school closure) and the 4 classroom extension just before the Easter Holidays

David Knowles  did Paulton Junior School proud on Sunday when he competed in the Schools Southern Zonal Trampolining Championship, bringing home the gold medal (well trophy to be exact) and in doing so goes to the National finals in March.



Radstock Museum and Paulton Junior School

The Museum has recently been a partner in a local educational project in conjunction with two education groups: WISE: ‘We Inspire Sustainability Education’ and ‘Wiltshire Global Education Centre’.
The project is aimed at KS2 primary age children and Paulton Junior School was the first school to take up the challenge in the Radstock area.

Their focus for the project was MIGRATION AND TRADE within Paulton.
Coal mining was Paulton’s main industry which involved a good deal of migration as mine workers from elsewhere were brought into the village to fill the jobs. Other industries in Paulton included: Evan’s Iron Foundry, the Somerset Coal Canal, Ashman’s Boot Factory, the Co-op shop and Purnells Printing Works.
The fantastic work done by the pupils of Paulton Junior School will be on display in the Museum from 1st February – 27th February 2017.
The Museum acknowledges sponsorship for this project from Wiltshire Global Education and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Parking

 We had a visit from the PCSO on Wednesday to inform the school about the inconsiderate parking habits of some parents. He asked if I could mention in the Newsletter that the Traffic Warden will now be issuing tickets. But perhaps more importantly I would like to remind everyone that we have a duty of care to keep our children safe and illegal parking puts us all in danger. Please think of others.




Selected News from pupils at Paulton Junior School

We did a bake sale to raise money for children in need. Every child in the school baked a cake. Overall, we raised almost £400 in just 30 minutes. One child from each class won a prize, a special spotty bag, donated by SunChemical Ltd. we enjoyed helping Children in Need, it felt good to be helping other children.
 By Gracie 5B and Kelsey 3R.


Upper School has been tutored on how to perform CPR in an emergency by the St. John's ambulance. They made us remember the ABC-airway, breathing and circulation. We all had a go on the resuscitation dummies and received a booklet to keep us prepared. We can now perform chest compressions should we ever need to and are confident to do this. This training has proven to be usual as in the leaflet there was a story about a 9 year old who saved his mother after she fainted.

RE Post Office

Dear Editor,

 

As BANES councillors for Paulton we have been made very aware over the last few weeks of the importance of the local Post Office to Paulton and the hardship that its closure in March will cause, particularly to elderly and less mobile residents. We have met with regional representatives of the Post Office and have explored with them a number of options for housing the service elsewhere in the village. Unfortunately we have had no success so far because none of the existing shops in Paulton feel able to take on this service.  Another meeting with the Post Office is planned soon, together with representatives of the Parish Council, and we will be pursuing at least one further possibility.

 

We are also concerned that if there is no immediate replacement for the existing building that at least there is an interim arrangement - maybe for a limited number of hours - to bridge the gap after March. We will continue to work as hard as we can to find a solution for this matter, which is so vital to the well-being of local people.

 

Yours faithfully

 

John Bull and Liz Hardman (Labour, Paulton)

From Paulton School.....

A huge thank you to the PTA and everyone who helped us raise nearly £5000 last year, which has been used to construct our amazing outdoor classroom named “The Hitch Hut.” See it in the Playscape. It is a great space in which to learn.



Festive Celebrations by Volunteers at 

The Hub Library Paulton

Despite uncertain times ahead for our Libraries, Paulton Library volunteers had plenty to be cheerful about. Firstly, because of their involvement, Paulton has one of the longest library  opening times in B&NES.Secondly, Paulton is almost unique in having a café in the Library and lastly, Paulton has an amazing lady called Kathleen Still, who runs the rota that organises the volunteers for the Library.




Liz Hardman, B&NES Councillor, Paulton said” We are so grateful to this wonderful team of volunteers who together with the professional librarians keep the library open almost six days a week. We are also very grateful to Zoe Escott (pictured) who runs The Hub Café in the library, which encourages even greater usage of the Library (and who prepared our celebratory buffet today).A final big thank you to Kathleen Still (pictured), who was presented with a basket of flowers from the volunteers.”

 



Laney and Mark’s Homeless Project Christmas Raffle

 


The draw took place in the Red Lion Pub, Paulton, for Laney and Mark Sandon James’ Homeless Project.Overseeing the draw (pictured) were Laney, Gail Garlick (Pride in Paulton)and Liz Hardman(B&NES Councillor, Paulton)Laney and Mark are an incredible couple who work tirelessly for the homeless in Bath.Each year, they organise a Christmas draw to raise money to help fund their homeless activities. This year, they managed to obtain 160 prizes, ranging from Afternoon Tea for 10 at the Guildhall, to a Spa Day at a luxury Spa Hotel, Music Lessons and Sunday lunches in local pubs, amongst many other prizes. In all, the raffle  raised £1404 for their Homeless Charity.

Laney and Mark run Laney & Mark’s Homeless Project from Paulton each Saturday.Each week, since 2014, they go into Bath and walk a 4-mile route around the city with  food packages, thermal socks, fingerless gloves, scarves, feminine hygiene products, wet wipes, underwear, shower packs (including 20p for the public shower + a small towel), dog food and  poop bags,for the rough sleepers who live on the streets.

When they finish this, they join the soup run, provided by the Genesis Trust and give out more socks, hats, gloves and cakes.

Laney and Mark have help from local people who donate food,  and the other weekly produce they supply, bake cakes and occasionally donate money to help them buy the new items they supply such as the socks underwear, gloves, etc.

On Christmas Eve, Laney and Mark will bring a Christmas Shoe Box filled with gifts for all  those they find living rough on the streets,with lots of useful items , including  fingerless gloves, a scarf, Christmas socks, soap and a washcloth, a brush or comb, toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant, chewing gum, a chocolate bar, a wash bag, a cracker and a Christmas card with hot food vouchers in each one. Of course, they make sure each dog gets a Christmas Box full of goodies too.

But it is the human touch which is so important for these street dwellers.Laney said”Sometimes though, besides the things we provide, the most important thing is just stopping, saying “Hello” and having 5 minutes making them feel they matter”.

So well done to an exceptional Paulton couple who help the homeless, not just at Christmas, but all year round.

 

You can find out more about them and follow what they do on their Facebook group page – Laney & Mark’s Homeless Project. 

 


Christmas Celebration Lunch for Paulton Senior Citizens


Paulton’s Senior Citizen Luncheon Club celebrated Christmas in style last week, with a fabulous Christmas lunch. Instead of lunch being cooked by Celia Slocombe and her team, it was  cooked by another set of volunteers, but this time it was staff from Tesco.

This luncheon club  would not take place but for Celia Slocombe, helped by June Drake and her team of volunteers who have been  providing lunches for Senior Citizens the first Wednesday of every month for the past four years.With effortless efficiency, two course meals are provided for around 40 senior citizens every month. Celia Slocombe said "I love doing it and I really enjoy it. We give people a really good time, with good food, a raffle draw and bingo”

This year (and last year)  volunteers from Tesco, led by Beckie Eschle, cooked the Christmas lunch for almost 40 people. Beckie said “ We want to be involved in the community which is why we like to get  involved and it gives Celia a chance to enjoy a meal, instead of cooking it” Beckie also added “I’d like to thank the Tesco staff, many who gave up their free time to help, including Anne Hale,Jo Carter,Tracey Geild,Brian Matthews,Lee Russell, Corrina Leggett and Sarah Dobson.” To round off the celebratory lunch, school children from Paulton Infant School sang Christmas songs  and carols to the delight of the senior citizens

Specially invited guests B&NES Councillors John Bull and Liz Hardman (pictured)said they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.




PAULTON ROVERS V SALISBURY. £553.

B&NES Councillors John Bull and Liz Hardman Fight for Paulton Post Office

 


 Following the announcement that the current Paulton postmaster is set to retire in March 2017, B&NES Councillors John Bull and Liz Hardman (Labour, Paulton) have pledged to campaign to ensure that the Post Office retains a presence in Paulton.

 

Cllr Bull said “A number of informal talks with local businesses have considered various options for the future of Paulton Post Office.  However, so far, these discussions have not led to a clear proposal.  It is hard to believe that a village the size of Paulton could be left without a Post Office.  The idea that local residents would be forced to travel to Midsomer Norton to use the Post Office is completely unacceptable”.

 

Cllr Hardman added “We have received assurances from a representative of the Post Office that a Post Office presence will remain in Paulton.As your B&NES Councillors we would like to assure Paulton residents that we are doing all we can to keep our Post Office in Paulton”

 







From the Methodist Church....

CHRISTMAS  BAZAAR

WOW!  The fantastic sum of £1542.34 was raised at last Saturday’s Bazaar – and there is still the Secret Santa money to add into this total!  What a success!  A HUGE thank you to everyone who worked so hard on the day, to everyone who contributed or helped in any way and to everyone who came along and supported us.  It could not have been done without you.









Paulton Methodist Church to support the Southdown project

On Sunday 4th December we are having a Toy Service which will be led by Jane Parsons. We need donations of toys to put underneath the Christmas Tree, and these gifts will be sent to the Southdown Project which works with the neediest and deprived families in the Southdown area of Bath. Jane was a former manager of this project and her successor, Deacon Annie Trembling will be saying few words in the service about the project, and the families who are helped at Southdown.
We hope that we will have a large number of toys, colouring books, crayons, etc to give to Deacon Annie at the end of the service

Personal transport for Paulton villagers


Swan Transport – Tel: 01761 439548, email: swan.transport@btconnect.com

Swan Transport offers a personal transport service using volunteer drivers, to those who are elderly, frail or disabled and on a low income (under £16,000). Our team of volunteer drivers use their own vehicles to pick people up from their door, providing an arm if needed, and take people to health appointments/social activities, then bring them home afterwards and drop them at their door. This is especially helpful for those who can't easily use a bus.


The journeys can include; hospital and doctors appointments, visits to the dentist/opticians, the hairdresser, shopping (assisted shopping is also available with drivers if requested) or visiting friends and family... The journeys normally take place from Monday to Friday during working hours - 9am to 5pm, though there is flexibility with this. Just occasionally drivers have covered journeys on evenings and weekends but there is limited availability. Swan covers journeys within the B&NES area, though again with some flexibility, as we have travelled further afield. 


There is a suggested donation per journey which ranges from £6.50 for a local return using a local driver, through to £20.50 for a return journey into Bath, for example to the RUH, which is quite a saving on using a taxi. All our drivers are paid mileage at Inland Revenue rates whilst giving their time freely. Swan supports those who have savings of up to £16,000, but if a client is over that threshold they can become a member of the Midsomer Norton and Radstock Dial-a-Ride: 01761 418097, who may refer them to us for journeys. 


If you know of anyone who could benefit from Swan's service we would be glad to be of help - please call us on: 01761 439548 to speak to either Sarah or Ann. 


We are also trying hard to recruit more drivers at the moment, particularly in Paulton and many other areas. All our drivers are  vital in enabling us to offer this important service. Swan Drivers can choose how much or little they would like do to fit in with their lifestyle. They can have regular journeys, or drive as and when they are available. As a volunteer driver, you will need your own vehicle. If you know of anyone who may be interested in helping their local community in this way, we would be very glad to hear from them!

Christian Aid Week 14‑20 May 2017

It’s better to die in a refugee camp than to die in a war. To risk your children’s lives in a plastic dinghy. And to leave everything you know behind.

When the alternative is terror, bombs and bullets, almost anything is better.

This is the terrible choice facing tens of millions of people worldwide - fleeing conflict and disaster, making dangerous journeys in search of safety.

Christian Aid Week was set up 60 years ago to support our work with refugees in Europe following the Second World War.

Let's act again now, to help relieve suffering and build a world where everyone has a safe place to call home.

 Towards the end of the week there will be

Christian aid collections

at the Precinct.

Please support our collectors
