Buses of Somerset have announced that from January 8th through to January 21st Taunton Road, Bridgwater will be closed between Broadway and Showground Roundabout. The closure will be in place every evening from 18:30 to 23:30. This is to allow resurfacing to take place.
Bridgwater Pumping Station is actually at Westonzoyland and was the first steam powered pumping station on the Somerset Levels established in 1830 and is now an accredited museum dedicated to steam power and land drainage.
Saturday 26th October saw Rhode Lane Wanderers U12s travel away to Hamilton, Taunton to face Taunton Pumas. The ground was sodden and at times, looked like a rugby pitch, but both teams gave it their all with Rhode Lane coming out as the victors.
After days of rain, the clouds had cleared and the sun was trying to poke through. Surprisingly, even though there had been enough rain to ruin a pitch, Cranleigh Gardens was holding up very well. After a postponed game last week, the U12s were ready to go. Their opponent this week - Ashcott Youth FC.
