Petition against 200 houses above the station

Tuesday, October 12, 2021|

Castle Cary Town Council and Ansford Parish Council care about our history which includes the historic landscape around us. The proposed destruction of the Ansford Hill field above Castle Cary station with 200 houses is one development too many.
It has been consistently opposed by many residents, the Town Council and Ansford Parish Council, other public organisations and South Somerset District Council planners.
PLEASE drop in to the Market House,  Bailey Hill Bookshop or several other shops in town and sign the petition opposing this. If you can,  please attend the Public Inquiry at Caryford Hall on 9th-12th November. The first day will start at 10am and we need to show the Inspector how much this development is opposed by the locality.

Cafe Scientifique Somerset at The Market House starts Oct 12th

Friday, September 3, 2021|

October 12th, 7pm, sees the start of the first ever season of Café Scientifique Somerset sessions at The Market House, Castle Cary.  Café Sci is a place where, in an informal café-style setting, there are free monthly talks and debates about the latest thinking in science and technology from researchers and experts across the science, technology, engineering and mathematics spectrum.  The audience is decidedly non-expert and the talks are aimed at anyone who would like to know more about the developments that will impact our future, with a distinctly local and social feel.  Attendees can take a glass of wine or cup of coffee and join in the debate and meet like-minded people.  This is the first such venture in rural Somerset and is well supported by the academic and industrial community with a fascinating line-up of speakers already confirmed.  It takes place as part of our LAMP (Learning At the Market Place) programme. The first session will see Professor James Ladyman of Bristol University discussing science as a complex system and debating the very nature of science itself – a thought-provoking beginning to an intriguing set of sessions which will take place on the second Tuesday of every month from October to June.
