Sadly, it looks as though the time has come to say goodbye to The Batch, which has delivered news to every house in Dunkerton, Tunley and Withyditch for the last 12 years, as no editor has come forward. The question is: how can we best communicate as widely and inclusively in the future? We need your views and suggestions. Currently we have the Dunkerton WhatsApp group, Tunley Talks Facebook group, D&TPC Facebook page and Dunkerton website but these all reach different groups and none of them reach people who are not digitally connected. Please air your views via whichever group you are reading this on, or by email to Views will be monitored by members of the Batch Management Committee for discussion.


Hello Everyone, As you may know, the Church of England has suspended public worship in all churches for the time being, so there will be no services in Dunkerton Church until further notice. We will keep you posted about any alternative initiatives that may emerge in the Benefice. Rev Tony Roake can be reached as usual on 01761 470249 or


If someone collapsed would you know what to do? Do you know about the defibrillators at the Parish Hall and at Tunley Recreation Centre? Could you do CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation)?
If you know how to do CPR but would like a short reminder lesson or if you thought it was something you really ought to learn one day but had never had the opportunity…..then it is another reason not to miss the New Year Breakfast on Sunday morning from 10 am at the Parish Hall. Dr Jo Crofts is attending and will be pleased to provide training individually or in small groups using the mannequins supplied by the British Heart Foundation.
