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 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 will be added to these pages.
Community Speed Watch
(Message from the Speed Watch team)
Over the past ten months you have probably seen us, in our yellow vests, at various sites around the village.
We are a very small group of local residents, all volunteers, (new recruits always welcome) and part of the
South Somerset Community Speedwatch Group, trained by and working to guidelines set out by the Police. Our role, as volunteers,
is to monitor the amount of traffic flowing through the village and report, without fear or favour, those breaking the speed limits.
We have no control over any other traffic problems, such as parking or issues with the 'build outs'.
We only report back to the Police those travelling at over 25mph. & above in the designated 20mph zone
and those travelling at over 36mph & above in the designated 30mph zone.
Unfortunately ONE in NINE drivers travelling through the village choose to exceed the lawful limits! And of those
some 3% are regular offenders! And that is only during the
limited times that we are able to monitor.
If you would like to know more about how to volunteer for this community service please send an email to:

At Templecombe railway station. Tempus Fugit (Time Flies), is both a sculpture and sundial.
The bronze statue is of a railwayman consulting the British Rail timetable, some of the
pages of which have blown away and landed on the grass.
The statue forms the gnomon
(part of a sundial that casts a shadow) of the sundial; the pages on the ground mark the hours.
