St Margaret’s Hospice

East Coker Parish Council have always been very proud to have St Margaret’s Hospice in our Parish.

Over the years many residents of East Coker have undertaken many funding activities for St Margaret’s and have donated many thousands of pounds to the hospice.

Like many others, East Coker Parish Council are saddened at the news that the inpatient facility at Yeovil may be closed and moved to the Taunton site.

East Coker Parish Council calls upon the trust and board of St Margaret’s Hospice, The Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group, and the Somerset County Council via it’s Adult Services to all work together to ensure that this much loved and valuable service of inpatient end of life care is maintained at the Yeovil Hospice for many years to come.


East Coker Parish Summer Fun

We had a fabulous event on Saturday – enjoyed by everybody in spite of the searing hot sunshine!
This was our first stab at a Community Event –  it was so good to see Villagers chatting, laughing and enjoying a lovely lunch – street style!
Belly Dancers, Tai Chi demonstrations, great stalls, Community Police, Firemen with their engine, games and competitions. We hope you enjoyed it all and thank you so much for coming. We will try and turn the heat down next year!
