Spring is in the air, and we are all starting to venture out as the weather improves and now all restrictions have been lifted.

Get Outside in Somerset
It has been a little damp in Somerset, but the good news is the start of spring is on its way! Bringing longer and lighter days, milder weather and hopefully… a much-needed dose of vitamin D. Get ready for spring adventures and outdoor fun with Get Outside in Somerset.

From activities to events and challenges, you can find a roundup of our latest stories and all the great stuff happening near you at www.getoutsideinsomerset.co.uk

Could you REHOME your old phone?
By donating an unused phone to us, YOU can help reduce loneliness and isolation for people in West Somerset, as well as help in their everyday lives such as doing their shopping online and staying connected to friends and family. Could you REHOME your old phone?

We will:

  • refurbish the phone
  • remove any personal data
  • provide the new owner with a SIM card
  • support them to use the phone with video tutorials and install apps that will help them to keep in touch with their loved ones

Check your ‘bits and bobs’ drawer where old devices lurk waiting to be loved again!

To donate, please contact your local Village Agent.
