Val Clark

I am fairly new to the village, I live in one of the new semi’s just down from the shop.

I’m in my early 60’s and happy to help wherever. Although I can’t visit either at the mo of course, I have a mum in south Petherton 89, with lots of health issues and a daughter in Kent with an 8 month old baby who is in the the high risk group too,  so I do need to be careful, but I’m sure that is the same for many people in the village.

Although not currently, I was a trained Samaritan, Pilates teacher and recently retired from 25 years of running my own pubs and hotels, just in case any of those skills are of use to anyone over the next few months!

My mobile is 07816889848.
