Thank you to all those who supported these events.
We have one defibrillator freely accessible to everyone 24 hours a day. This has been provided kindly and thoughtfully by Thales and is located on the
main gate to their business premises in Throop Road (SatNav BA8 0DH).
Easy to follow instructions are with the unit.
Wincanton Fire Station hold training sessions for CPR and defibrillator use. They are free and last about two hours.
They advertise their sessions on their Facebook page, numbers are limited and you only have to drop them a message
and they confirm if you are on a session.
Community Speed Watch
UPDATED MESSAGE FROM
TEMPLECOMBE COMMUNITY SPEEDWATCH GROUP
24th November 2018
We have now been operating for two years. We are a small group of volunteers and our role, under Police
supervision and guidelines, is to monitor and report on traffic speeds through our village.
During the time we have been operating we have expended some 480 man hours over 250 sessions monitoring over 70,500
passing vehicles of which 13.6% (many repeat offenders) have been reported to the Police for exceeding the
designated speed limits. In the 20mph zone we only report those travelling at 25mph or above and in the 30mph
zone only report those travelling at 36mph or over.
It would be nice to say that all those speeding were visitors to the village but unfortunately that is by
no means the case!
Hopefully our presence does encourage drivers to slow down and make our village just a little bit safer for everyone.
If you would like to know more about how to volunteer for this community service please send an email to:

Clubs & Societies
Templecombe has many active clubs and societies reflecting a wide range of skills and interests.
The "GET TO KNOW YOUR VILLAGE" event at the Village Hall on Saturday 7th October 2017 was very well represented and attended.
We extend a very big "thank you" to the organisers. This was a great opportunity to find out what goes on
in Templecombe, much of which has been added to these pages.
Managed by the Parish Council, the area boasts two full-size football pitches (Sports Club/Community Association) and tennis courts which are available at low rates to hire.
Please contact the council clerk for details:
