"Dear SOS Whatcombe Fields Shareholders 
This is to notify you of some changes agreed at the last SOS Frome Board Meeting, in respect of cattle grazing on the community fields.

1- When renewing the grazing licence it will be amended to stipulate that ‘no livestock under three months old, must be brought onto the fields.’
The current licence expires at the end of this September. It is our understanding that the present grazier has now removed most calves and a number of older cattle from the fields.

2- Before the next grazing season begins next April, signage will be installed at approximately twelve key points around the fields, including footpath entrances, cycle path and railway access. This will read:

CATTLE GRAZE HERE from April to October

The cattle are usually docile but can be inquisitive and sometimes intimidating. Please use other routes if you are concerned. Do not allow your dog or children to chase or startle cattle. Keep dogs on leads, but let them run free if cattle approach.

If you have any questions or comments please do not hesitate to contact me.

Steve Small on behalf of the Directors"
