Moot Saxon Scene
Winsham's Moot
aka Annual Parish Meeting
(This web page first appeared on Winsham Parish Web Site immediately following the event)
On May14th, Winsham held it's first Moot for a thousand years! Acknowledging Winsham's Saxon roots, it was used to invigorate the Annual Parish Meeting, which the Parish Council has an obligation to hold. 
Some seventy residents turned up to enjoy a glass of wine and see presentations from Winsham Parish Council, Winsham Shop and Post-Office, and Winsham School and Pre-School. In addition they saw a video slide presentation featuring all the village resources, organisations and interest groups.
The event lasted rather longer than anticipated, stretching to two hours, but that didn't seem to bother anyone. Time was allocated to questions and answers.
It was also the first event run by the new Parish Council Chairman, Bryan Goodman.
