NEW late night bus service from Bristol. Serving Paulton and Midsomer Norton Mon - Sat starting next week (W/c 8th April). The Wells 376A service will be leaving Bristol bus station at 22:20, 23:20 and 23:55. With just a short 50 minute journey time, this new service will attract the very affordable £2 per journey fare.
This service will go through Hallatrow to Paulton and on to Midsomer Norton, returning to Farrington Gurney via Thicketmead, past Tesco and serving the bus stop by the farm shop at Farrington Gurney before resuming it's journey via the A37 to Wells.
We now have late night services from both Bath and Bristol where you can enjoy an evening at the Theatre, Harbourside or various other attractions in either City without worrying about how you will be getting home.
Be sure to look at using this new service, which will be an asset to the village and a more affordable way of making your way back home in comparison to other forms of late night transport.

Somerset Coal Canal

The Coal Canal is a canal under restoration. It starts from the junction of the Kennet and Avon canal at Limpley Stoke, Brassknocker basin and follows the Cam valley though Midford, Combe hay where it ascends a flight of 22 locks and on to Dunkerton, Camerton, Radford and ends at the Paulton/Timsbury basins. There was also a southern line that went from Midford across an aqueduct and ended at Radstock, this part of the canal was short lived in part to a lack of water and was superseded with a tramway.

Bus News

Paulton residents are celebrating the news that the very first WESTlocal service will serve their area.WESTlocal, from the West of England Mayoral Combined Authority, led by Mayor Dan Norris, allows communities to access cash to design and run their very own, brand new, not for profit bus.When he launched WESTlocal last year Mayor Norris explained how “local people know their areas best” and that he was looking forward to some “new and innovative” ideas. Now he says he is “delighted that local people have risen to the challenge. It’s people power in action.”The first successful bid is led by Paulton Parish Council. The Paulton WESTlocal will link communities across the Somer Valley and Cam Valley running from Radstock to Odd Down Park and Ride via Westfield, Midsomer Norton, Paulton, Radford, Timsbury, Camerton and Tunley.The bi-hourly service will start running in the Spring.Mayor Dan Norris said: “Local people came together and said they wanted better links to local shops and schools as well as to the RUH. They’ve put in the hard graft to design a bespoke plan, so I’m delighted that they’ve won the first WESTlocal. "I really hope local people use the service - that will be the true measure of success.”Paulton Councillor Grant Johnson led the application on behalf of the Parish Council, he said: “After setting up a Bus Working Party on Paulton Parish Council last year, myself, Cllr Liz Hardman, and Cllr Cyril Mitchard have worked with local bus experts to come up with this new service. We wanted to make sure that it covered all the areas that are not served by a bus, including areas where there is a particular need for social mobility. Let’s get on with making this vital service for Paultonians a success.”Local bus campaigner Marion Harrington made headlines last year whilst fighting to save lifeline services in the Somer Valley, on hearing the news of this new service, the 90-year-old said she was “delighted to hear the news about this new bus service.”Cllr Liz Hardman joined in welcoming the news of the new service, she said “When I was elected as a councillor, I said my main priority was to get a local bus service to serve the needs of our residents. I’m so grateful to my colleague Grant Johnson for all the hard work he has put into this funding bid – he really does deserve to be recognised.”Cllr Cyril Mitchard was thrilled to hear the news, he said "I'm delighted for what this service will do for Paulton and other nearby communities. I hope to see many residents on the service so we can make it as successful as it can be."

From Paulton Parish Council

From the Methodist Church

The Lent cross was once our Christmas tree. During Advent it stood at the front of Church decorated with lights to help us in our preparations and celebrations of the birth of Jesus. It has now been stripped of its branches and turned into a Lent cross.
Each week in Lent we will bring a symbol of the last week of Jesus’ life and put it at the foot of the cross.

Toad Crossings

Signs are up ready for this season! But the toads have taken advantage of the mild weather and have already started crossing particularly between Purnell’s Sports Ground and Goosard Bridge. - on Tuesday over 70 live toads (and a few frogs and a newt) were found, who were all keen to get to the ponds to start mating. Please take care and slow down for amphibians so that we give them a better chance of breeding successfully.
