I don't know whether it's the season of goodwill, or just because people in Yeovil are nice, but there always seem to be plenty of open doors, and willingness to work together. The local nursery have asked for a Christmas service in church, and the Parish Council have let us put posters advertising the Christmas services on their noticeboards.
Tomorrow is the eve of St. Nicholas Day, so we're taking biscuits round to the neighbours in the evening - a tradition we nicked from relatives who lived in Holland for a while (did you know that 'Santa Claus' comes from the Dutch for St. Nicholas?) It was a great way to get to know people last year when we'd not long moved in, and in turn gave rise to a round of very nice dinner parties amongst the folk at this end of our street. More importantly, when a neighbour was recently bereaved, we were able to rally round as neighbours and support in practical ways, rather than just being strangers who'd become too embarassed at not knowing one another to make the first move.
