COFFEE & CHAT

More than 100 years are between the oldest and youngest (who are also related - see below) at April’s Coffee and Chat! Lovely to see Joan and Gloria again after a long winter break, Fi and Mark and all of our regular chatters, including Amy who’d had to leave early. We had a lovely morning!

Chrissie Skinner 100 year gap - see notes.jpeg
Over 100 years separates the oldest person (Chrissie Skinner) in this picture from the youngest! The two little girls are the grand-daughters of Chrissie's half-siblings

Right - Lily May Turner  8 months old and Mum, Emma-Jane [E-J] Auger. Lily's dad Liam is the son of Chrissie's half brother Jeremy. Jeremy's sister Lyndy (Chrissie's half sister) is the grandmother of Fern Williams  (11 months old)  whose Mum, Naomi Williams [ nee White] is Lyndy's daughter. 

The Safari Supper saw 77 people enjoy fabulous cocktails in the Hall, before starters and mains at 8 venues, and a return to the hall for puddings and Jazz! More pix on the Nympton News extra content page when we publish in the next few days.

Welcome to the Community Website for Kingsnympton 
Whether you are a local or a visitor, this is the place to find information about the village and surroundings, and an insight into the community.

Maybe you're moving into the area and would like to introduce yourselves or find out about what's going on in the community. Maybe you need a specialist in a particular area of work. You can find this and much more in our pages and directory listings.

 

To help you to become more sustainable we're got a section on lowering your environmental impact - including recycling everything from bubble wrap to laptops and buying from local independent shops

If you are visiting the village we have extremely informative sections on the local historyplaces to eat and places to sleep! You can even take a tour of our virtual village to explore before you get here!

Many of the recommendations are based on personal preferences - so if there are eateries, days out or tradespeople you think we should be featuring, do let us know. The same goes for what's ons and important notices for the `Latest Information' box at the top of the page.

Much of the information here was written by John Barnes, who set up the original site. But there are always new aspects to village life that we should reflect, so if you feel there is anything missing just get in touch.

Also, check out, follow and contribute to our Community Facebook Group
