Rector’s Letter – April 2018
April 2, 2018

Traditionally the week before Easter is called Holy Week beginning this year on 25th March, with a Palm Sunday procession in Cutcombe, during which we hand out Palm crosses. This begins at 10.30am at the Triangle Field and continues in the Parish Church usually around 11am. In a change to the usual procession this year, we will collect Stations of the Cross along our route to church. Stations of the Cross are fourteen scenes from the life of Jesus as he was led to the Cross and we have a new set of these beautifully painted for us by Micaela Beckett.

On Wednesday 28th March, Exford Church host the Barle Singers with a performance of Durufle’s Requiem beginning at 7.30pm. The Maundy Thursday service will be on Thursday 29th March at 7.30pm at Exford. The Communion is followed by the removal of all portable decoration from the church such as embroidered altar frontal, called the ‘stripping of the altar’. The symbolism is an invitation to us to strip away what is unnecessary in our life and focus on what is essential, what givea us a sense of meaning and purpose. After the removal of decoration from the church, there is a silent vigil in the chancel until 9pm when we say Compline, a short service of ancient prayers and psalms.

On Good Friday we are back at Cutcombe church for children’s activities in the church at 10am followed by an Easter egg hunt organised with the Friends of Cutcombe school. This is an opportunity for children to hear the Easter story. That afternoon at 3pm in Winsford is a time of solemn reflection on the story of Jesus journey with the Cross, through silence, words and music. The tradition is to arrive and leave in silence.

On Saturday evening we have the first Holy Communions of Easter. This year enjoying again our new tradition of an Easter Communion service at Simonsbath church at 6pm. There is also the Easter Communion at Hawkridge at 10pm for those people who are lambing and might find this a convenient time. On Easter Day there are services across the Benefice at 9.30am and 11am.

Everyone is welcome to all of these services and if you would like more information please get in touch.

All the Best, David Weir.

Rector’s Letter – March 2018

 

I am very happy to say that the full magazine will return with the April edition. All of the methods of sending articles and information in to the relaunched magazine remain as they were. Please therefore use those original channels and send in your information and articles by the 9th of March. The earlier deadline is in order to have the magazine ready to distribute on Friday 23rd of March, the Friday before the last Sunday of the month so it is with people as the new month begins. It is also important for the new editors, to whom we are all really impossibly fast turn-around to get the copy to the printers. While the magazine has not been published many people have told me how much they value it especially the local news from villages so please find out who your village coordinator is and send in lots of interesting information. The great thing for me about the new arrangement is that it is more than ever a team effort. I want you to think of the team in the widest possible way – you are part of the team, please be proactive in sending in articles, comments and suggestions. Please do not be put off if your suggestions are not taken up directly but please keep thinking of the magazine as an Exmoor Community effort: from Across Exmoor to Across Exmoor.

All the best

Newsletter/Across Exmoor/Rectors Letter – February 2018
February 4, 2018

Rector’s Letter – February 2018

 

The good news for people who enjoy reading Across Exmoor is that a number of people have come forward with offers of help in compiling the magazine and administrating the adverts and it looks hopeful for a relaunch in April. I very much hope this works out. Many people have told me how much reading Across Exmoor each month means to them. It was very disappointing not to have the Christmas December edition but it looks like we will be moving to more of a team effort in producing the magazine in the future, which will be less dependent one individual. Lots of people have told me that the village news which appears in the magazine is very important to them so please continue to send in village news to the local compiler. I am also hoping that we will dedicate a couple of pages to the help that is available to people across the moor in need of some support from various charities and agencies and how to access that help; but that will be a matter for the new editorial panel.

Thought for February:

Lent this year begins on February 14th with Ash Wednesday. The name comes from the practice of making the sign of the cross on the forehead with ash as a reminder of human frailty, echoing words from the Bible and funeral service: remember that you are dust and to dust you will return. This is meant to free the individual from over-burdensome expectations of themselves and others as we are invited to begin in Lent a period of reflection on our life, our hopes, our priorities, and the way in  which our lives reflect in practice the ideals and ethos we value. Remembering that we are dust offers a generous context as we do not fall into being too self-critical and it also acknowledges the fragility and transitoriness of life and perhaps hints at a sense of urgency in putting into practice what we believe we hold dear, while we have the time left to us here on earth, another echo from the funeral service. In summary then we might say the Lent offers us time to reflect on our mortality, to reset our priorities so that in the words of ancient wisdom ‘we take from death before it takes from us.’ There will be a service of Holy Communion with ashing on Wednesday 14th February at 12 noon and then on each subsequent week of Lent, there will be a reflection on the themes of Lent at 12 noon each Wednesday all in Exford Church Chancel.

WARNING – TOOL THEFTS
January 29, 2018

West Somerset residents advised to be vigilant after tool thefts

Added on 26 January 2018 at 16:16

We’re asking residents to be vigilant in west Somerset following an increase in tool thefts from vans.

Since the beginning of January 2018 there have been a total of 52 thefts in Minehead, Taunton and Bridgwater. Thieves are forcing their way into vehicles by breaking windows and doors. Victims have reported hand and power tools being taken in the majority of cases.

Sergeant Stuart Williams who’s leading the investigation in Minehead said: “We want to remind all van owners to remove tools from their vehicles overnight and if they are unable to do that to follow some of our simple steps below to prevent them becoming a victim of this crime.

Top of Police Van

Top of Police Van

We recommend motorists empty a work van overnight, but if this is not possible you can carry out any of the following steps:

  • Permanently mark  tools with your business name or postcode to make them identifiable
  • Register them at www.immobilise.com
  • Keep them inside a secure storage cage or box anchored within the vehicle
  • Set the alarm as well as locking the van
  • Park in a secure garage or with the doors against a wall or against another vehicle to make access more difficult
  • Check out www.soldsecure.com  for security products

If you see anyone acting suspiciously around a vehicle in these areas call 101 or if you witness a crime in progress call 999.

Bird Flu Warning
January 18, 2018

On 18 January 2018, Defra introduced an Avian Influenza Prevention Zone in England. This means it is a legal requirement for all bird keepers to follow strict biosecurity measures.
This comes as H5N6 bird flu was confirmed in 13 wild birds in Warwickshire, a few days after bird flu – highly expected to be the same strain – was found in wild birds in South Dorset on 12 January 2018.
We’ve introduced a new Avian Influenza Prevention Zone which applies to everyone who keeps poultry or captive birds in England. All keepers must follow our detailed legal requirements on strict biosecurity, whether they have commercial flocks or just a few birds in a backyard flock. View our best practice biosecurity advice.
Read more about the current risks in our latest veterinary outbreak assessment.
UK Chief Veterinary Officer Nigel Gibbens said:
Following the latest finding of bird flu in wild birds in Warwickshire, we are extending our action to help prevent the virus spreading to poultry and other domestic birds.
Whether you keep just a few birds or thousands, you are now legally required to meet enhanced biosecurity requirements and this is in your interests to do, to protect your birds from this highly infectious virus.
What to do if you keep poultry and captive birds
If you keep poultry – whether that’s a few birds in your garden or a large commercial flock – you must take steps now to review your biosecurity. You should also:
register your birds with APHA;
report any sick birds;
sign up for disease alerts.
Review your biosecurity
Bird flu is spread by direct contact between birds and through contamination in the environment, for example in bird droppings. This means wild birds carrying the disease can infect domestic poultry, so the best way to reduce the risk of your poultry catching bird flu is to minimise chances for them to come into contact with wild birds or their droppings by practising good biosecurity.
You must review your biosecurity measures now. This means reading government guidance on good biosecurity and taking action to:
minimise movement in and out of your bird enclosure
clean footwear before and after visiting your birds
keep bird enclosures clean and tidy and regularly disinfecting any hard surfaces
humanely control rats and mice
place birds’ food and water in fully-enclosed areas that wild birds cannot access, and remove any spilled feed
keep your birds separate from wildlife and wild waterfowl by putting suitable fencing around the outdoor areas they access
make sure equipment, feed and bedding are stored undercover so they cannot be contaminated by wild birds
where possible keep chickens and turkeys separate from ducks and geese
Read and download our advice poster for keepers of poultry (PDF, 1 page).
Register your birds
We encourage all keepers to register their birds with Defra so that we can contact you quickly if there is a disease outbreak in your area and you need to take action. If you have more than 50 birds, you are legally required to register your flock within one month of their arrival at your premises. Find out how to register your birds.
Report signs of disease
If you suspect disease in your own flock, or you find dead wild birds such as wild ducks, wild geese, swans, gulls or birds of prey, you must let Defra know. Call the Defra helpline on 03459 33 55 77.
Sign up for disease alerts
By signing up to the free disease alert system you will get text alerts and emails informing you of the latest news about bird flu and Newcastle disease outbreaks in Great Britain.

Rectors Letter – January 2018
January 2, 2018

Rector’s Letter

I hope you are having an enjoyable and rewarding celebration of Christmas and the New Year.

The Newsletter discussions continue about whether it will be possible to re-launch Across Exmoor, or something similar, at some point. The earliest realistic date for this would be an April 2018 edition. Until then at least, and perhaps from now on, I will publish a Benefice Newsletter. Items for the newsletter, to be included where space allows, should be emailed to the address below*, or posted to the Rectory, or phoned in to me. Details wanted are date, venue, time, event name and descriptive word (whist-drive, craft club, coffee morning, etc) and if you would like, your name and contact telephone number. Space is limited to the back page but I will do my best to include all local events of interest.

A thought for January: One of the aims of the church is to offer space – for reflection, a pause for thought, a chance to dream. At the Grenfell Tower service in St Paul’s Cathedral the Archbishop of Canterbury spoke about the infinite value of each person.

A society in which each person is afforded infinite value may seem like a dream. One reflection on the Grenfell Tower disaster was that the residents of that tower, along with other marginal members of society were undervalued. The response to the disaster shows that when the results of ideology, politics, economics become embodied in individual stories, individual faces, then ideas, policies, strategies can appear in a different light. The key message and experience of Christmas is ideas of God, holiness, value embodied in a human being, a vulnerable baby, whose birth sheds light on the meaning of life for shepherds and kings, for the marginal and the privileged, for all of us. The churches offer us this opportunity to reflect, pause for thought and dream in this light, the light of Jesus Christ as we enter 2018 and the possibilities and opportunities this new year may bring.

On 28th January the Benefice Communion for the feast of Candlemas will offer the opportunity to reflect again on this theme of the light of Christ. Candles are blessed at this service to take home as a reminder of this light throughout the year.

Please bring a candle to be blessed or make one from the kits provided during the service.

Rector’s Letter – December
November 28, 2017

Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control the December Across Exmoor magazine has not arrived. However a news sheet has been produced and comes with best wishes for Christmas from the Exmoor Benefice and which gives basic details of services and events in December and in to the New Year. A copy of which can be found in The Oak Shop and on the Notice Board.

I apologise to disappointed contributors, advertisers and readers. Over the last few months I have discovered how complex, time consuming and in the absence of a volunteer editor, increasingly costly it is to produce Across Exmoor: it has been remarkably straightforward and inexpensive to produce a news sheet, given the consistent difficulties of producing a full magazine, I will be thinking in terms of a sheet for the foreseeable future. There may be an opening here for a motivated member of the community.

A thought for Christmas. What Christmas means in 20th century West Somerset is a complex mixture of ancient origins and more recent themes. What the churches offer is an opportunity to hear again the story of the birth of Jesus, within the evocative surrounding of our ancient buildings, their history, prayers, space, peace, quiet, an opportunity to sit with others in a generous environment of mutual encouragement and think about what is important to you; to feel a range of emotions and to allow yourself to be inspired.

I wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas.

Best wishes  David Weir
