HORTON village is desperately looking for someone to join their playing field committee.

District councillor Linda Vijeh said that with reduced levels of funding in all areas, it is ever more important for local residents to take an active part in their communities. She added: “It is only by doing so that we can ensure we maintain those services that are so valuable in enhancing our day to day lives.

“I do all that I can to support those that I represent, in any way I can, but we do all need to work together - it can be very rewarding.

“One of the best examples of the community pulling together is the concerted effort of Horton residents and their supporters in raising the funds to build the village hall, now seen to be an exemplar within South Somerset. So, if you value your village assets, get involved.”
