Thanks to plenty of pilchards and a dead mackerel, (used as bait), the mink has been caught and humanely dealt with. Please let Sid at Glencot know if you see signs of any more in the river and he will build another trap.

There is a newly arrived mink living in the River Axe in Wookey Hole. No. It’s not a small otter, a weasel or a stoat. It’s been seen at very close range. It’s certainly a mink. It’s also left a trail of destruction in it’s wake.

A load of now departed chickens and pet rabbits, (housed in a fox proof pen, but not mink proof apparently), plus some now departed moorhens etc.

Be aware if you keep any sort of livestock near the river that it is about. Efforts are being made to trap it humanely as mink are classed as a pest.

 

Sid, Glencot House.

Somerset County Council and the NHS have contracted Compass Disability Services; a Somerset based user led organisation to deliver a county wide support service for carers known as Compass Carers.

The overall aim of the service is to support unpaid carers, recognising the value and contribution they make to society offering individual support to enable them to maintain their caring role whilst having a life outside of caring.

The service is promoted by a team of Carer Support Workers who work in conjunction with Carer Champions at GP surgeries, the health and social care sector and a range of other organisations to publicise the help and support available for carers through Compass Carers

On Guy Fawkes day, Nov.5th 2015, I'm happy to put a note on the board, sharing my feelings for living in Wookey Hole with a friendly bunch of people.I'm finding my feet, step by step, while enjoying long walks and chats, the beautiful views, walks with Oswald a good neighbor's dog. Country life is the best, I find, after leaving city life in Holland. Now that the days grow shorter, I wish to express my appreciation and to you all a happy wintertime and warm feet.

Marian van der Veen.
