  • A Big Thankyou from Bertie
    BertieHello Everyone, it’s Bertie here. I would just like to thank everyone who helped my mum raise money for my knee surgery.

    It’s been 8 weeks now since I had my knee operation and I’m feeling so much better. After my op, I wasn’t allowed to do anything, so I spent my first couple of weeks just confined to the house with only little visits into the garden. Gradually, I was able to increase my outings and now I hardly limp at all because my knee is so much more comfortable and is getting better and better each day.

    Me and mum are now able to go out for short walks and these will get longer and longer each month which I am really pleased about. I’m going for my first post-op x-ray soon so the vet can see how my knee is healing and, hopefully, by the middle of January, I should be back to my usual activities. I’m really looking forward to being able to go out to play again with my best mate Buddy.

    love from BertieEveryone has been so generous in helping me and mum and I am so very grateful. See you all out and about soon. Bertie. X

  • NEW NOTICEBOARD IN CLAPPS MEAD PLAYING FIELD ADJACENT TO MILL LANE
    The Chideock & Seatown Community Website has funded a new Noticeboard which has been placed in the playing field adjacent to Mill Lane.   At the moment we have decided to keep it locked as this is a ‘magnetic’ board and this time of year posters from outside of the village appear to be stapled-gunned onto boards.  If anyone would like to put up a poster please either email it to me and I will print it off and display it or drop it through my letterbox at The Farmers Arms, Mill Lane.  This community website makes a little profit from advertisers on the website and to date donations have been made to several village groups and local good causes. Many thanks to Lee Martin for his excellent craftmanship.
