Transport and space needed by foodbank
A new foodbank is looking for help to support people in need of food during financial hardship.
The Somer Valley Foodbank was mooted at a meeting last month attended by almost 40 people from community groups, councils and churches.
Now organisers are looking for help with warehouse space and transporting goods.
Among the supporters is the Rev Matthew Street, leader of the St J's Group of Anglican churches in Peasedown St John, Wellow, Shoscombe and Foxcote.

He said: "If anyone has spare warehouse capacity that they would be prepared to donate to the Foodbank on an ongoing basis we would love to hear from them."
Professionals such as doctors, health visitors, social workers, the Citizens Advice Bureau and police identify people in crisis and issue them with a Foodbank voucher.
This voucher can be taken to a distribution centre where the food has been collected through donations, or from volunteer supermarket collections.
The service, which will operate in north east Somerset alongside an existing venture in Bath, will be launched in January.
If anyone can help with warehousing or the use of a van, they should contact Joy Fraser on 01761 433644.
