I am writing to introduce myself.  My name is Valerie Hunt, ( please call me Val). I have been appointed as the Village Agent for a small cluster of villages, comprising North Curry, Stoke St Gregory, Othery, Burrowbridge, Lyng and Durston. I am employed by the Community Council for Somerset , who have been supporting rural Somerset for 86 year. This is a pilot project funded by the Big Lottery, Bernard Herridge Charity and Total Somerset with the aim of providing information about and access into services; of which housing, home safety, health and welfare are examples. I provide information to you, so that you know where help is available and who can provide that specialist advice and/or any practical help you may need. If you want me to I can also refer you to those agencies to get the ball rolling. I will then keep checking with you to make sure that they do make contact.

I only work part time and will check for messages, phone or email, on Monday morning. My contact details are below.

I am looking forward to working in my cluster, and getting to know and help you. I can and will visit you at home if you need me to and will have photo ID, I’ve also had a CRB check.
