Hear this page!

[June 25] Members’ poems have previously been posted in the news items, individually.  As the number of poems increases, we want to maintain News for more ‘newsy’ items, and so the members’ poems have been gathered on pages for the poet: Poems by Eileen Ann Moore, (including a new poem ‘The Harvest’);  and Poems by Michael Elwick, (including two new poems ‘Spring’ and ‘Time in the midst of nothing’.

[March 11] From the February 2021 edition the Minehead & District monthly newsletters are available from the website  (as well as being sent out as an email attachment).  We are even planning to make it possible to Listen to the newsletter! (using the ‘Screen reader‘ facility).  Please let us know if you would find this useful.

The latest newsletter will be available here  (or just ‘Search’ for Newsletter)

We are also in the process of creating an ‘Archive’ section on the website for the newsletters from previous years.  Because these contain personal information they will be accessible to members ONLY (‘logged-in’ users i.e. those who are registered with the site). Have you registered? There are instructions on how to get registered on the website itself – but if you need assistance  – or with anything else – just email

[February 20] We have heard that on some Forum pages, the print is appearing very small!  We have managed to track the cause of this to the addition of photos in high resolution – the browser accommodates the image as best it can, meaning that associated text is reduced.  We have adjusted the size of images found to rectify this – but uploading of images to a forum is done by you, the contributor – so please reduce the filesize before uploading.  If you are unsure or need some help in uploading an image, please contact us – IT Champions.  If you have problems with any page, please let us know – there are over 400 pages in this site, and we do not have that many eyes in the team: but there are that many in the membership, so please help us!

[January 31] Advent Calendar pages have been removed or if of more value than quiz etc. have been added to interest group pages

[January 16] A new forum for community health – Health and Welfare – is added.  See the forum for reports of members’ experiences of the vaccination programme.

[January 12]  A new photo group page – A different Christmas – is now available (more may be added).  General History has the transcript of a talk by John Batt on educational developments leading to the formation of the U3A movement. Cherrie Temple has provided part 1 of a timely look at the coastal damage (and repairs) at Blue Anchor.

[January 6] A new Books Forum is added.  An index to poems by members is added – yours next?

[December 29th] Including the Advent Calendar, since launch on December 1st, more than 40 pages have been added – and there will be more if you can tell us what you want or can reports some news – there is a News report form on the News Page to let you do this.

[December 8th] Please note that you can add comments – on pages like this, and all Advent Calendar pages.  The comment box is down below the main text.

A small help page for members using mobile phones to access this site is now provided.  Thanks!    IT Champions
