Poem for Wedmore in Somerset

 A past visitor - new to our village kindly provided the following poem:


It’s tucked away in a valley resplendent, self contained
Once off the M5 you wonder if you will ever arrive
And in giving up a stranger couldn’t be blamed
But patience has its own reward, a village that thrives.
