Last Friday ( 3rd August ) saw a very rare occurrence the Welsh Family left the village for a rare day out. As Sub officer Welsh is a bit of a train nut along with his nephew Dan it was decided that a trip to the West Somerset Railway was a good idea. So ensuring that the village was in safe hands off they set. Arriving at Bishops Lydeard train station to catch the 10:10 to Minehead, being pulled by a Manor class loco as informed by Dan, they set off on a 20 mile trip to Minehead. They decided to break the return journey at Watchet where they enjoyed a blow out picnic with a side order of chips. While eating a familiar blue and white sign came into view, a coastguard station of course Sub Officer Welsh had to go and have a look. He got to the station to find a CRO ( Coastguard Rescue Officer ) cleaning some Mud rescue gear after a training session. This chap made the Welsh’s very welcome, so thank you to the CRO at Watchet, I’m sorry they didn’t get your name. More on Watchet Coastguard in later blogs. So if your reading this chaps thanks again from the Welsh’s.

With the annual trip out of the village gone by the Welsh’s can settle back into village life, keeping Kimmeridge safe and sound. With a busy weekend ahead for the team at the Purbeck Rally in Wareham Dorset they need a rest after such a hectic day. More on the Purbeck Rally in later blogs.It’s a great day out, come and say hi the dates are 10th 11th an 12th of August.
