We received this information from the Creech Parish Council:

"The register of electors dated 2008 stated the population is 1,959 which covers adults only, and includes Adsborough, Ham, Creech Heathfield as well as Creech St Michael"

How do I book the new solar powered canal boat? 2010-06-14 08:16:05
Can anyone tell me how I find out about how to book the new solar powered canal boat?

Two solar powered boats have recently been visiting the Bridgwater & Taunton canal. Both boats are owned and demonstrated by me and my fellow members of the Electric Boat Association. "Solar Flair III" is an experimental platform developed as part of our purely amateur plans for the use of Photovoltaic technology for boating and water transport. "Collinda" was built and fitted by the Moss Solar Trust to prove the viability of solar collection to power a boat and was the first boat to cross the English Channel entirely under solar power.

Unfortunately neither boat can be chartered as they are not licenced or insured to carry passengers though we do offer rides to anyone who gets into conversation with us when we are on the waterways. There is a new electrically propelled boat running from Creech St Michael which is owned and operated by Somerset Waterways Development Trust. Details can be found on the Trust website: www.swdt.org.uk

Our daughter starts at Heathfield school in September and we are concerned about the distance to school 2010-06-02 09:17:01
We are looking to buy a three bed house and have been looking at property in Creech St. Michael. However our daughter starts at Heathfield school in September and we are concerned about the distance to school and safety for her, Is there an easy route to walk/cycle and long would it take?

Children can't walk or cycle thease days due to the loss of the use of their legs. Do what all the local mothers do, make trips in with only one child on board in their over sizeed cars, adding to congestion, driving like a bat out of hell with no consideration for their child or anyone elses life. Drive as fast as possible, cutting up other drivers, as Jeremy Kyle is about to start.

Ignore my sarcasm, there are plenty of safe routes to walk/cycle, quite refreshing to see a parent encoraging this rather than some mothers droping their kids of as if they are on some emergency call out.

Emma,
There are two possible routes. The B&T canal has a car-free footpath and the canal joins Dyers Lane near the A38 at Bathpool about 200 yds south of Heathfield school. Lots of students walk along the A38 footpath from Creech Castle.

Or down Hyde Lane past CSM primary school and join the A38 at Brittons Ash at the pedestrian lights. There's no footpath yet down this road. Lots of kids bike down this road.

How long it takes depends to a large degree on how fast your daughter can pedal - it's not far :-)

Any information on the Trump family? 2010-06-01 13:27:46
Question: My ancestors include a John Reed TRUMP from Somersetshire.  Perhaps Creech St. Michaels or Durston.  according to records his father, John was a butcher and his mother was Ann.
He came to Australia in the late 1850's part of the 40th 2nd Somersetshire of the Foot.  This man died in New Zealand in 1860 result of 'severe cold' during the Maroi Wars.  Any info on the Trump family would be appreciated.  Thank you  for this service.   Margaret Cooke, Nth Queensland Australia
