    RE: Somerset

    Glad to hear things are going according to plan. You'll find the climate much less extreme down here (spoken as an ex-Essex girl, as you know ;)).

    Here's a link:

    I shall be attending the drumming workshop on the Monday, but unfortunately am otherwise committed over that weekend.

    I've only been in Somerset a while, but thought I'd touch base to say I can't make those dates.

    Actually there's a 9-day festival of music, art, food, etc., in Frome starting tomorrow. I only just remembered that I bought some tickets for some events ages ago! There's a great community atmosphere during this annual event, and the main streets are packed out with free music, etc.

    Here's a link to the website:

    which, funnily enough, I posted in the Reflexology forum yesterday for a new HP member who is also new to the area:

    Perhaps you're neighbours?

    RE: Somerset

    Hi holistic and everyone.
    I just scanned through the thread and saw a member question frome.
    My partner and myself have been here now for a year and a half.
    We both were working/studying in Bath so had the best of both worlds in relation to city/town life.
    I must say that I adore Frome. It took a while for me to get used to the size in relation to Swindon (where I originated) but the creativity and artistic under current here is quite impressive.
    Also how everyone pitches in to adhere to a vision whether it be for charity, drama, flim etc.
    As pre mentioned, the architecture is fabulous and I beleive there are approx 345 grade listed buildings. Cheap street is very quaint as is Catherine hill. Cheap street in particular is veyr hesitant to chain stores and I heard at some point that he proprietors have say on new business in the area. Check out Judes coffee shop Le Strada, I have met so many friendly people here and the place reflects Judes community spirit.

    ;)

    RE: Somerset

    That is so true! I've never encountered anything like it living in big cities, or in the middle of nowhere either. If you like, PM me and we might have a coffee sometime. I should say again that I haven't been here too long and it isn't a permanent place for me. But for now ... ;)

    THE EAGLE HAS LANDED!!!!

    At last I'm here in sunny Wellington which has turned out to be a wonderful friendly place. Everyone we have come into contact with have been really welcoming, even the local paper decided to do a feature article on me as I come from Essex and sounded "interesting" lol.

    Looking foward to possibly meeting up with fellow South Westerner's at some point,

    Love and light

    Somerset buddies :)

    Hi all, I've not visited Healthypages in a long time, but I'm back and looking forward to the healthy discussions etc on the site. I noticed this thread and that it hadn't had much 'action' for a while, so I thought I'd just drop by. I'd be interested in joining up with like minded people in the Somerset area, I live near to Bridgwater or 'Bridgey' as the locals call it! I hail from London but have lived in the Somerset area for around 18 years. I'm a medium with interests in all things spiritual/psychic/paranormal. I teach angel/mediumship workshops amongst other things and it would be great if we could kick off the new year with getting this Somerset group re-activated and maybe a meet of two could be in the offing! :) Looking forward to chatting to you all.... Angelwispa xx

    Hi Angelwispa, welcome to the forum :). Things do seem to have gone quiet on here re Somerset. I can't believe I have now been here four and a half years and it has gone so quickly! Do you get to Taunton at all? If you do it might be good to meet up for a coffee? If anyone else from HP is around you are welcome to come too :D.

    Love and light
