Kilve lies between the Quantocks Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the coast, which has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It is a welcoming village, with a beach celebrated for its fossils, wonderful and varied walks, cricket teams playing on a ground which must be one of the most beautifully situated in England, a pub and a well-stocked shop and post office. The Village Hall hosts all kinds of activities and entertainment, with something for everyone.

I wonder just how many of you watched the recent Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Known affectionately as the ‘Friendly Games’ it was adjudged to be the ‘best ever’ One of the things which I think captured the imagination of the general public was the array of different sports which were included.

One of those sports which received a lot of television coverage and recognition was Bowling. It was so interesting to see people of all ages and all abilities having a go for their national team, and I am wondering if this might have sown a ‘ seed of interest’ in some of you.

UPDATE – 1st July 2014

The 741 exchange serves Kilve, East Quantoxhead, Holford, Doddington, Stringston and Kilton.

Following our survey of Broadband usage through this exchange and the subsequent presentation by the Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) Senior Team we have continued our battle to discover why the 741 Exchange has been excluded from the CDS Programme. Despite twenty one Statutory Information Requests to both Devon and Somerset County Councils, an exchange of correspondence with Cllr David Hall (Dep. Leader of Somerset CC) and a direct approach to the BT Group, no rational explanation has been given.
