Welcome to the Huish Episcopi Community Website.
A few words on this website’s update – 14th September, 2015
Whilst it may appear to regular visitors using PC’s or Mac’s that all is more or less as it has been for the past 3+ years with regards to presentation, our website has in fact just undergone fundamental restructuring. The ever-increasing use of smartphones and tablets to access the site could not be ignored. We have seen a rise in the number of visitors using mobile devices, commencing at 8% and now standing at 52%. To address this development, the site has been made ‘responsive’ in that it automatically adapts to suit any mobile device regardless of make, model, operating system or orientation. When viewed on smaller screens the presentation will be found to be quite different, however the content remains the same. Other detail improvements have also been carried out.
As the entire content has to some degree been revisited, we would request that all contributors just run an eye over their article, advertisement, event or whatever and, if you notice something not as you wish, please contact the Webmaster who has been deeply involved throughout. Of course we ourselves have already done this but, by the laws of averages, something may well have slipped through unnoticed.
We hope that all will be pleased with the overall improvements that we have made.
Our village of Huish Episcopi lies in the heart of Somerset. We have good recreational facilities, well-regarded schools for children of all ages, fine level walks, cycle ways and footpaths beside the beautiful River Parrett.
The boundary of Huish Episcopi is not all that easily understood, so for clarification please refer to the boundary map on this site.
We are closely aligned with the town of Langport with all the advantages that this brings. Within a 15-mile radius lie the larger towns of Taunton, Yeovil, Bridgwater and Clark's Village at Street, as well as ready access to the M5 and A303.
Due to the fact that we do not incur any Webmaster's costs, we are in the fortunate position of being able to accumulate and distribute funds within our community. Last year, we were able to support our local Primary School by way of providing the finance for much needed additional computers for use in their increasingly important IT lessons.
All parishioners are very welcome to attend our Council Meetings, which are held bi-monthly, usually on the third Monday of the month at Huish Sixth. We occasionally have additional meetings to action, in the main planning applications. All meetings are published under ‘Upcoming Events’, likewise the Councillors’ Surgery, which is held on the third Saturday of each month at Langport Town Hall from 11am to 12 noon and attended by at least one Councillor from both Huish Episcopi Parish and Langport Town Councils.
We continue to support Langport town, two thirds of our precept going towards maintaining both communities’ amenities.
We are pleased that our advertisers are continuing to support our Website, as not only does this increase their presence in our community but their contributions also benefit good causes in and around our village. Please kindly support the Huish Episcopi Community Website and the businesses displayed on this site by making them aware of where you saw their advertisement.
Finally, your participation is encouraged - any local contributions, whether as an article or photographs, will always be gratefully received by our Webmaster.
