Hinton St George is regarded as one of the best kept villages in Somerset as it retains the character of a rural community with its own Local Shop & Post Office, Church and Award Winning Pub where you will always find a warm welcome.

Unspoilt Somerset

Hinton St George is a picturesque village in South Somerset surrounded by rolling farmland orchards and woodland. It’s history can be explored at a glance through its arcitecture and the layout of the streets.

The 15th Century Church with its fascinating monuments was built by Italian craftsmen and replaced an earlier structure. The mainly 16th Century Priory sits back from the High Street between handsome 17th and 18th Century Farm Houses, some with Medieval foundations. These rub shoulders with 18th Century buildings and lead to Victorian workers cottages at the crossroads. Following a hard fought campaign, the village and surrounding park became a conservation area, one of only five in the county.

Hinton St George boasts a Primary School, Allotments, Post Office, Village Hall, Shop, Tearooms and the Lord Poulett Arms pub, recently voted into the top 100 in the UK by the Sunday Times. With around 450 inhabitants, the Village enthusiastically carries on traditions established generations ago; Wassailing, the Village Fete, Oak Apple day, Pantomime, and the more esoteric Punkie Night held on the last Thursday in October.

Caroline has asked me to post this message:-

"Who would have thought that as we waved him goodbye, it would have been our last cheerio. In a cruel twist of fate, Rob wasn’t to return home on Tuesday 13th February. The girls lost their father, I, my husband, and we all lost a candle that burnt very brightly.

It has been an enormous shock, but the warm wishes that have flowed in our direction and the kind words from the village have been and will continue to be of enormous comfort.

Thank you.

As his passing was so unexpected and sudden, his wider family are keen to have a private funeral, as this will be our last time to say goodbye to him. There will be a memorial service to follow in May, when we will extend an invitation to everyone to listen to some amusing anecdotes and stories and raise an eyebrow to one of life’s characters.

Thank you for understanding. Much love, Caroline."

We have been concerned for some time at the condition of the flagpole on the tower of St. George's and now with the generous support of a benefactor, we are able to replace it. Weather permitting, Dawson's the steeplejacks will be on site at 8.30 am on Friday 23rd February taking down the old pole and erecting the new one. Come and watch as it should be an interesting process - but please keep well clear! Rev Bob / David Clements.

Marshalling - the closest you can get to the Slay action without actually having to the run the race!
Hinton St George First School desperately need more marshals for this year's Slay the Dragon Races on 25th February.

What we need
People prepared to help with marshalling. Marshals are vital as they are located around the race course and provide directional assistance and encouragement to runners.

What’s involved?
2-3 hours giving directions to runners along the course. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. You’ll be provided with course information and will be fully briefed before the race.

The morning of Sunday 25th February, from 9.30am meeting at St George’s Village Hall.

Nice cup of tea and slice of cake when you finish, and you’ll be helping your village school.

Can you/your family/anyone you know help with marshalling this year? If so, please call or message Kat Khan-Davis (07738 223200) or Tess Chapman (07737 928610).
