The Trustees of the Speedwell Hall have now raised sufficient funds to instal a ramp allowing access for less abled users to experience and enjoy the superb walled garden at the rear of The Speedwell Hall. As ever the skills and support of Richard and John Chant was critical to the successful achievement of this project which provides a great asset to the Speedwell. The ramp has been very appropriately named ‘Richard’s Ramp’ and you can see the pictures of the presentation of this worthy plaque in The Gallery section of the website.

Veronica Chard has also prepared and planned the Speedwell garden so that it looks at its best this summer.

Many thanks to all those who give so much of their time to the Speedwell.


Photo Gallery by Jeff Hutson

Jeff is a keen local photographer who has taken a wide range of beautiful photos of views of Crewkerne and surrounds in all seasons. He has also taken pictures of local craftsmen and makers of food and drinks based on local produce. Jeff has kindly mounted a wide range of these photos in the Hall and the Committee Room. They look stunning and superbly enhance the newly refurbished Hall. The framed photos are available to purchase and Jeff will kindly donate the net proceeds to The Speedwell Hall. When we are open again, be sure to visit and appreciate our very own Crewkerne Gallery in the Speedwell.
