Yeovil SignEARLY YEOVIL HISTORY

Yeovil was founded in the 8th century after the Saxons conquered this part of Somerset. The name Yeovil is believed to be a corruption of the Celtic word Gifl, meaning forked river.

In time the Saxon village grew into a little town. By the time of the Domesday Book (1086) it was a flourishing community though it would seem tiny to us with a population of not more than 1,000. Yeovil or Givle, as it was then known, had a weekly market. In those days there were very few shops so if you wished to buy or sell anything you had to go to a market.

From the early 15th century there were also 2 annual fairs in Yeovil. In the Middle Ages fairs were like markets but were held only once a year for a few days. The Yeovil fairs would attract buyers and sellers from all over Somerset and Dorset.

In 1205 Yeovil was given a charter (a document granting the townspeople certain rights). By the early 14th century the merchants of Yeovil had gained the right to elect a portreeve (a man who ran the town day to day).

Like all other towns Yeovil suffered from the Black Death in 1348-49. It may have killed half the population. Then in 1349 a riot ocurred in St Johns church when the Bishop of Wells was visiting. For some time there had been arguments between the townspeople and the clergy over the markets and these boiled over into violence. When the bishop was in the church some people attacked the priests who were with him. (In those days spilling blood in a church was a scandalous thing to do!).

However Yeovil recovered from these problems. In the early 14th century the first glove makers were mentioned. In the following centuries the glove making industry grew to be Yeovil's most important industry.

A church has existed on the site of St Johns in Yeovil since at least the 10th century. It was rebuilt in the years 1380-1400. Its windows let in so much light it was later called the Lantern of the West.

In 1477 an almshouse was built with money left by John Woburn in his will.
In 1499 Yeovil suffered a severe fire. In those days most buildings were made of wood with thatched roofs and they burned easily so fire was a constant hazard. On the other hand if houses burned they could be easily rebuilt.

YEOVIL IN THE 16th AND 17th CENTURIES

In the mid-16th century a writer called Yeovil fairly well built. It stood pleasantly on its rocky hill. He described the church as fair and well lit. In 1539 Henry VIII dissolved the priory.

In the 17th century Yeovil suffered two more severe fires. One was in 1620 and one in 1643. Like all towns Yeovil also suffered from outbreaks of plague. There was a serious outbreak in 1646-47.
In the 17th century glove making continued to flourish in Yeovil. There was also a parchment making industry. Yeovil was also an important market town for the surrounding area. The market was especially noted for cheese, hemp and linen thread. In 1685 the Duke of Monmouth led a rebellion against the king in SouthWest England. He was defeated at the battle of Sedgemoor. Afterwards 8 of his supporters were hanged, drawn and quartered in Yeovil.
YEOVIL IN THE 18th AND 19th CENTURIES

A grammar school opened in Yeovil in 1744. Otherwise there was little change in the town during the 18th century. It continued to be famous for glove making and was a quiet and small market town.

In 1801, at the time of the first census, Yeovil had a population of about 2,800. It would seem very small to us but by the standards of the time it was a fair size. Yeovil grew rapidly in the 19th century and by 1900 it had a population of 11,000.

In 1830 a body of men called the Town Commissioners was formed in Yeovil. They were responsible for paving, cleaning and lighting the streets. In the 18th century the streets of Yeovil were lit by oil lamps but after 1834 they were lit by gas.

In 1831 there was a riot in Yeovil when parliament refused to pass the Great Reform Act, which would have reformed elections. The riot only ended when troops were called out.

Meanwhile the glove industry prospered. In the 1830s it was said that 3 million pairs were made each year in Yeovil.

In 1848 the Town Commissioners demolished the old Market House (where indoor markets were held) and the Shambles (where butchers had their shops or stalls). In 1849 they built a new town hall. Furthermore the railway reached Yeovil in 1853.

In 1856 Yeovil was made a borough and gained a mayor. Several new churches were built in the 19th century. Holy Trinity was built in 1846. A Roman Catholic Church was built in 1899. A hospital was built in Yeovil in 1872. A piped water supply was installed in Yeovil in the 1870s. Also during the late 19th century sewers were built.

In 1888 a cheese and butter marketing company came to the town. In 1901 it adopted the name St Ivel. The St Ivel factory closed in 1976. In 1882 Petters oil engines began production in Yeovil. During World War I they began to manufacture planes on the Westlands site.


YEOVIL IN THE 20th CENTURY


By 1901 the population of Yeovil was about 11,000. New municipal buildings were built in 1926. The town hall burned down in 1935.

During World War II Yeovil was a target for German bombing because of its aircraft industry. As a result of bombing 49 people were killed. Many of the towns houses were damaged or destroyed.

Reckleford fire station was built in 1962. Yeovil College opened in 1963. The Museum of South Somerset opened in 1965. Maltravers House was built in 1969 (the Maltravers family were lords of the manor of Yeovil in the Middle Ages). Summerland hospital opened in 1973.

Yeovil borough was replaced by Yeovil District Council in 1974. The Octagon theatre opened in 1974. The Quedam Centre was built in 1988.

Today the traditional industry of glove making has disappeared from Yeovil but it has been replaced by new industries like light engineering.

Today the population of Yeovil is 41,000. Yeovil is a rapidly growing town.
yeovil rdc armsTHE YEOVIL CREST
The gold background is taken from the arms of the Somerset County Council and the 'pall' or Y- shapad figure, suggests the initial of the name and also the junction of two Roman roads, one of them the Fosse Way, near Ilchester. The white wavy 'pall' alludes to the River Yeo or Ivel, which gives its name to Ilchester and Yeovil, and means 'the forked river' as in the Welsh 'yr eifl' (the forks). The purple colour recalls Imperial Rome and the many Roman associations of the district. The green 'chief' refers to the pastoral character of the District and the crown of wheat-ears and acorns is one specially devised for Rural District Councils. The white gloves refer to the distinctive local industry.
The eagle is, again, a reference to Roman history and has its wings inverted as on the Roman standards. It also refers to the Fleet Air Arm station at Yeovilton and to the Monteagle family of Martock, for whose arms eagles were the supporters. The star and crescent on its breast are derived from the ancient borough seal of Ilchester, which no doubt bore them in reference to King John, to whom the device is attributed as a badge. Three of the four red roses come from the arms of the Phelips family of Montacute; the other is from those of Cardinal Wolsey, whose first living was that of Limington. The gold bezants on the eagle's wings refer to the connection of the district with the Duchy of Cornwall.
Monmouth's Progress
 In Memorium
"I am James Scott, First Duke of Monmouth and the son of His Royal Majesty Charles II. All those who join me in my quest against the Catholic Usurper, James Duke of York, my father's brother and his murderer, will gain Royal favour when I take my rightful place as England’s Ruler."

 I was  Crowned King in Taunton 20th June 1685 and  presented with flags embroidered by the maids of Taunton pupils of Mistress Susanna Musgrave and Mistress Mary Blake ( See plaque at top of High Street)

In Memory of the Local People  executed for following me by courtesy of "hanging" Judge Jeffries.  Although my rebellion was a disaster for many it will always be remembered amongst West Country people as a reason for some pride. Pride that when liberty was threatened the West County at least was prepared to fight against all odds for what they believed in. TThe Taunton Assize took place in the Great Hall of Taunton Castle (now the home of the Somerset County Museum). Of more than 500 prisoners brought before the court on the 18th/19th September, 144 were hanged and their remains displayed around the county for all to see and know what happened to those who rebelled against the king. The 284 who were transported were treated worse than slaves as, unlike slaves who had to be bought and paid for, they cost nothing and were therefore expendable. This may seem a cruel and bloody period in our history, but even into the 1800's people were still being imprisoned, executed, and transported for rioting and rebellion.
The relatives of the schoolgirls, the Maids of Taunton, who had presented me with a banner, had to pay a heavy ransom to have them set free.*

*One of the more interesting twists in the historical record revolves around William Penn, Jr.’s ( Son of the founder of Pennsylvania) activities in the aftermath of the Monmouth Rebellion in 1685. T.B. Macaulay, an English historian and Whig politician writing in the mid-1800s, caused a great stir among Quakers and other Penn admirers when he claimed in his History of England that William Penn took a bribe in return for arranging for the release of the “Maids of Taunton” 

Macaulay’s accusation was based on a letter found in an obscure archive:

“Whitehall, Feb. 13, 1685-6.
“Mr. Penne,
“Her Majesty’s Maids of Honour having acquainted me that they design to employ you and Mr. Walden in making a composition with the Relations of the Maids of Taunton for the high Misdemeanour they have been guilty of, I do at their request hereby let you know that His Majesty has been pleased to give their Fines to the said Maids of Honour, and therefore recommend it to Mr. Walden and you to make the most advantageous composition you can in their behalf.
“I am, Sir,
“Your humble servant,
“SUNDERLAND.”

The “Maids of Taunton” moment in history deserves further consideration 

TRY THE MONMOUTH WALK
The Liberty Trail: This route, about 45km, continues from the end of The Leland Trail at Montacute and heads south across undulating hills and vales into Dorset and finishing on the south coast at Lyme Regis [SY339914]. You will need OS Explorer 116 (Lyme Regis and Bridport) for this trail. The theme this time is supporters of the Monmouth rebellion of 1685 who made the trip to Lyme Regis to join the Duke of Monmouth in his ill fated campaign. Somerset is steeped in this facinating period of our history.

Yeovil Literary PrizeWelcome to the Yeovil Literary Prize
Now in its eighth year, the Yeovil Literary Prize has evolved into a highly successful international writing competition. There are two ways to enter; by using the postal system, or the now well established option to enter online; its ease of use has encouraged a significant increase in entries. We look forward to even more this year when this writing contest opens on 1st January 2011. Competition is extremely keen and, as always, writers of every calibre and covering all genres are welcome to enter. The Novel category in particular is very popular as novelists are not often catered for. It allows writers to demonstrate their wealth of talent and commitment to the craft of fiction that writing a novel entails. The Betty Bolingbroke-Kent Award for novels provides a rare opportunity for aspiring novelists.
The standard and number of entries for the Short Story and Poetry competitions also continues to impress. If anything, we found last year that the standard had been raised, revealing a plethora of subjects beautifully written. We give respect to all our authors and thoroughly enjoy reading their work.
The judging teams commissioned by the Yeovil Literary Prize consist of professional, experienced and successful writers whose comments reflect the worth and potential of the leading entries.
■ This year we are thrilled to have Daisy Goodwin as our judge for the poetry category. Daisy is a highly respected poet and TV programme Producer.
■ Always with an eye on the world of publishing, we have Mark Lucas, Literary Agent from LAW, as our judge for the short stories.
■ Our novel category has Katharine McMahon, renowned author of Rose of Sebastopol and The Crimson Rooms as its judge.
The Yeovil Literary Prize was originally established to, and continues to, stimulate interest in all literary pursuits, as it fundraises for the Yeovil Community Arts Association. It is now able to provide real support by way of sponsorship to the creative arts in the South Somerset area. The Yeovil Community Arts Association is a Registered Charity (no. 299372).

A Winsham author reveals some lesser known Somerset literary connections in a new book - including the address in Yeovil once occupied by Thomas Hardy. Among the sites identified in Literary Somerset, by James Crowden, is 7 Peter Street in Yeovil, where the newly married Thomas and Emma Hardy lived for several months in 1876. More commonly associated with Dorset and in particular, Dorchester, Hardy's residence in Yeovil was not widely known until recently. Mr Crowden said: "I discovered the address through a recent biography of Hardy by Claire Tomalin which mentions it. I went there and discovered it is a glorified Primark car park. It was probably quite a grand street in its day, there are still a few flats left at one end. "We don't know exactly why Hardy moved to Yeovil. His mum was brought up in a village nearby and Yeovil was the nearest market town."He was told about Yeovil by his mother. There was a story of a girl who was caught stealing books from a stall and was paraded around the town."Hardy had just spent his honeymoon in Swanage and was looking for his own house. He had come down from London and had very little at the time - a bookcase and a doorstop." Peter Street is now extensively redeveloped with a public car park, several businesses and the staff car park and rear access for Middle Street shops including Primark and Millets.

Literary Somerset was launched last month in Bruton, which itself has a connection with Nobel prize-winning American author John Steinbeck. He rented a cottage near the town while researching Arthurian legend, something he had been interested in since childhood.
Mr Crowden's book mentions more than 350 writers, from Ilchester-born Roger Bacon, who was an early scientific pioneer, through to modern science fiction writers Arthur C Clarke and Terry Pratchett. Part of the book was researched at Yeovil reference library in the early part of last year, while Mr Crowden was making regular visits to a relative in Yeovil hospital.He said: "The library has a very good reference section. There is more to Yeovil than meets the eye."
Part of his research involved spending a day in East Coker, burial place of one of the most famous 20th Century poets, TS Eliot. For the book, Mr Crowden researched Eliot's famous poem named after the village and uncovered a new meaning to the enigmatic verse, which may refer to Eliot's Somerset ancestors, or another former resident of the village, William Dampier.
"There is a lot of the unusual, and quirky references in the book as well as what is well known," Mr Crowden said.
Yeovil Town Golf Day
For those of you of a golfing persuasion, the annual Sherborne Golf Club golf day has been booked for the diary once again.
Monday 18th April will be the day you should book off work and bring your clubs, bag and (in some cases), your sombrero to the Dorset venue for what will be a cracking days' entertainment.
Full details of the running order will be released shortly when they have been finalised but this year's event offered the chance for Glovers fans to mix with their heroes of today, yesterday and a few years back as well.
Stars such as Warren Patmore, Dean Birkby, Rob Cousins and Mickey Spencer mixed with sporting legends Bobby Gould, darts player Bob Anderson and ex-Bristol Rovers player Geoff Twentyman. For present day supporters, there was the chance to pair up with Craig Alcock, Dean Bowditch, Nathan Jones and Terry Skiverton at the April event.
You can now download an entry form from the official site, fill it out and send it back into the club to reserve your place at this special event.
More details will be available soon but the event proved very popular last year and places will fill up quickly so don't delay, dust off that putter and come on down to Sherborne Golf Club for a ball, or three!!   CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS

Chard’s Urban Slide!
 How do you fancy an opportunity to take part in an event that’ll put Chard on the map? On September 7th Chard’s High Street will be hosting an event that is the first of its kind in Somerset – a 300 foot water slide!  This is a one off event being organised by the Mayor, Councillor Mrs. Kenton to fund raise for her charities. It will replicate an event that took place in Bristol earlier this year which generated a huge interest with people travelling from all over the country to take part. The Slide will be open for everyone over the age of six and those under metres will be able to slide later in the afternoon when the slide will be shortened to allow younger children to take part.
 
The Mayor said ‘we have all the ingredients for a slide, hill, water and people with a sense of fun. I can’t wait!’
 
It is essential to pre-book as participants will not be able to turn up and slide on the day. Registration Forms are available from the Guildhall and payment must be made in advance. There will be a choice of times available but book early to avoid disappointment. A wristband system will be in operation which will be issued to you when you have completed the booking and paid.  Registration forms must be returned to the Guildhall by 12 noon on 1st September – Upon returning your registration form you will need to pay for your ticket to slide and you will be issued with a wrist band which you must wear on the day.  The Registration Form and the Slide Rules and Instructions can be downloaded by using the links below:

Information from the TIC is almost limitless and a lot of it is invaluable to local people - especially those involved in the tourism business in some way. Have a look below to get an idea of the scope.

You'll see that you don't need to be a tourist to use your friendly, local TIC!

TREASURER'S HOUSE

The National Trust acquired this beautiful medieval house in 1971, and since that time it has been restored to its former glory. The property was completed in 1293, and features a great hall, which is probably the most impressive part of the house. There are several wall paintings on the site, and pieces of architecture that are thought to be even earlier than medieval.

YEOVIL OCTAGON THEATRE

The Octagon was built in 1974 and opened as a multi purpose hall (The Johnson Hall). Within the first few years it became apparent that the venue was both more suitable and successful at staging performances than any of the other activities (ballroom dances, exhibitions, etc.) for which it was intended.From the outset the Johnson Hall became home to Yeovil Amateur Operatic Society who have regularly presented two musical productions each year. Another early user who has maintained their relationship with The Octagon up to the present day is the Yeovil Temple Salvation Army whose annual Christmas Carol services become ever more popular. In 2003 the Octagon was refurbished and extended. A new rehearsal studio was created on the ground floor, whilst on the first floor space was added to the bar and cafe areas.The auditorium was re-seated and even the structure on which the seating stands was replaced. Creating large new storage areas and ensuring greater comfort for theatregoers.

SHERBORNE

The town was named scir burne by the Saxon inhabitants, a name meaning "clear stream" (see: Bourne (placename)).The town was made the capital of Wessex, one of the seven Saxon kingdoms of England, and King Alfred's elder brothers King Ethelbert and King Ethelbald are buried in the abbey. In 705 the diocese was split between Sherborne and Winchester, and King Ine founded an Abbey for St Aldhelm, the first bishop of Sherborne. The Bishop's seat was moved to Old Sarum in 1075 and the church at Sherborne became a Benedictine Monastery. In the 15th century the church was deliberately burnt down during tensions between the town and the monastery, and was rebuilt between 1425 and 1504, though some of the Norman structure remains. In 1539 the monastery was bought by Sir John Horsey and became a conventional church. Sherborne was for many centuries the centre of a hundred of the same name.In the 12th century Roger de Caen, Bishop of Salisbury and Chancellor of England, built a fortified palace in Sherborne. The palace was destroyed in 1645 by General Fairfax, and the ruins are owned by English Heritage.In 1594 Sir Walter Raleigh built an Elizabethan mansion in the grounds of the old palace, today known as Sherborne Castle.There has been a school in Sherborne since the time of King Alfred, who was educated there. The school was refounded in 1550 as King Edward's public school, using some of the old abbey buildings, though it is now known simply as Sherborne School. The school remains one of the top fee-paying schools in Britain, boasts numerous successful alumni, including Alan Turing, Jeremy Irons, Chris Martin and John le Carré. Until 1992 there were also two Grammar Schools, Foster's School for boys and Lord Digby's School for girls. Now, the tradition of excellence in learning within the town is continued with Sherborne School for Girls (another top fee-paying school), The Gryphon School, a well regarded comprehensive and the Sherborne International College (for children from overseas).Other notable historical buildings in the town include the Almshouses of Saints John the Baptist and John the Evangelist, founded in their current form in 1438 and expanded in the Victorian Era in indistinguishable medieval style architecture. The conduit, Hospice of St Julian, and Lord Digby's school, now known as Sherborne House (designed by Benjamin Bastard) are also well preserved old buildings in the town.

SHERBORNE ABBEY
Along with the town’s two castles, Sherborne Abbey is one of the main attractions to the historic market town of Sherborne. It is a magnificent building, with around thirteen hundred years of history, and well worth a visit. There is no admission charge but a donation is recommended. Each year there is also the Sherborne Abbey Festival, the programme of events for which has proved to be a great success.

BOW HOUSE
This eye-catching exercise in black and white was once the Sun Inn. It sits right beside the Abbey Gate and forms part of a picturesque cluster of buildings. It was built around 1600, but some of the most attractive details, including the carved foliage elegantly trailing along the top of the facade, date from Victorian and later restoration. The building has been part of Sherborne School since 1916.

THE CONDUIT
This intriguing hexagonal building once housed washbasins for monks. It was built by Abbot John Meere in the 16th century within the cloister of Sherborne Abbey. Medieval monasteries were noted for their plumbing. Monks had water piped into the monastery by complex systems. While most such structures were destroyed at the dissolution of the monasteries, this conduit survived by being moved outside the abbey for the benefit of local people. Its rarity has made it a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

HOSPITAL OF SAINTS JOHN THE BAPTIST & JOHN THE EVANGELIST
Sherborne has an unusual almshouse. Most medieval hospitals or almshouses sprang from the charity of the Church. The impetus for this one came from concerned townspeople. It was incorporated by royal charter in 1437. The building housed twelve poor men and four poor women. To keep the sexes separate, the building was two-storey. The women lived on the top storey which gave onto a gallery in the chapel. The almshouse still serves its original purpose, though there are more residents, thanks to a Victorian expansion.

Sherborne is an independent school and its premises are private, but some of its most historic buildings can be let for functions, including the Jacobean Old School Room.

CITY OF BATH BOTANICAL GARDENS
One of the most delightful features of the Royal Victoria Park, the Botanical Gardens were formed in 1887 and within their 3.8 hectares (9 and a half acres) is one of the finest collections of plants on limestone, certainly in the West Country.  Less than a mile from Bath City Centre in the north west corner of the Park, the gardens boast many choice trees, shrubs, a fine herbaceous border, a rock garden and pool, a scented walk, a collection of old shrub roses, and a replica of a Roman Temple (the City’s exhibit at the British Empire Exhibition held at Wembley in 1924). These are just a few of the many attractive and interesting features of the garden. To mark the centenary in 1987 the gardens were extended to include the Great Dell, a disused quarry and formally part of the park itself, which already contained a very fine collection of conifers. It has been developed into a woodland garden, and contains ever more plants and features to add to this fascinating and beautiful park.The Temple of Minerva in the Gardens was carefully adapted and extended in 2009 to create an indoor Interpretation Centre for visitors and schools / groups. The Interpretation Centre has a 15 minute video explaining the Heritage Lottery Fund restoration of Royal Victoria Park along with other information and occasional exhibitions. The Centre is open during week days only but is available for bookings by schools and groups at other times.

CROWE HALL GARDEN
 More remarkable than the house, which is built on one of the seven hills surrounding Bath, are its 10 acres of gardens that date from the 18th century. ''The garden presents a picture of great natural grandeur,’’ noted the Journal of Horticulture and Home Farmer as early as 1906. ''The construction of descending terraces and huge retaining walls give it an Italian appearance within an English setting.’’ There are also miles of shady walks, grottos that lead from one of 12 terraced levels to another and water features. And there are unexpected small gardens: one is the Hercules Garden, designed in 1995, where the Grecian demigod appears once in his lion skin and once in a mosaic pool; while another is the Teazle Garden, so named in memory of a dog. Gardens: 7 & 21 May, 11 June & 16 July 14.00-18.00, at other times by arrangement. Hall: by arrangement only

THE GEORGIAN GARDEN
A re-created Georgian town garden, designed after archaeological work by the Bath Archaeological Trust. The original garden was made in the 1760s. In 1985 it was decided to make better use of the garden and the positions of the flower beds, paths and the trellis were located by excavation by the Bath Archaeological Trust. The garden features the beautiful variegated leaves and double flowers that were particularly popular in the Georgian period and follows the original layout – typically simple and formal. And although the plants that grew in the garden were not recorded, species known to have been used in town gardens of the period have been planted. Staff from the Council’s Parks Department try to keep the garden as authentically 18th century as possible. They do not use pesticides and they use an authentic Georgian roller to go over the gravel.The garden is open from 9am until dusk. Entry is free to everyone and the garden can be accessed via Gravel Walk in Royal Victoria Park.

HADSPEN GARDENS
Five acres of mixed colour themed borders, ponds and meadows within the framework of a Victorian walled garden in the grounds of a country estate.A twentieth century Arts and Crafts garden in and around an old walled garden on a hillside. The planting is good. It is by Penelope Hobhouse, author of Colour In Your Garden, followed by Nori and Sandra Pope, who have also written a book on planting design with colour. The most intensively cared-for part of the garden is within the old walled vegetable garden of Hadspen House. Since it is on a hillside, it looks less like a vegetable garden than other examples of this genre."

LADY FARM
Lady Farm garden has really been making a name for itself over recent years. It is a favourite with garden photographers and has all year interest. The 'prairie' and 'steppe' style plantings are a real highlight not to be missed but there is much more.  A shady hosta walk, with birch and hydrangeas, leads to a lake which has been created from a stream. This is surrounded by natural planting which blend into a wildflower meadow. A stream tumbles into a deep ravine before resuming to its natural course.
Whilst there is much to see the garden is designed to be low maintenance.

The Manor Hotel Yeovil is located in the Somerset town of Yeovil with easy access via the A303. An Ideal base if visiting Yeovilton, Sherborne. Built in 1735 by local glover and merchant banker John Daniel, the house was known as Hendford House. After he passed away the house was rented out until 1927 when it became The Manor Hotel. A manor it may not be, but it is certainly elegant enough to be one. Its classical facade and porch are of warm, mellow stone, and to its long single wing, also of stone, an enormous conservatory, more like an orangery, has been added to form a sunny and spacious brasserie. It has a cheerful modern bar with scrubbed floorboards and pale beechwood furniture and fittings. Today the hotel is a firm favourite with locals and travellers alike.

What better way to turn up to the ceremony than in Derek Trotter's Reliant Van? Your fiancee will be turning up in her vintage Rolls, so why not arrive in a bit of style yourself? We do plenty of weddings throughout the year and the impact is phenominal every time. At a time where everyone is feeling a little nervous, it can act as a great calming measure - and it really adds something to the whole occasion!At a wedding, we will normally drive the groom and best man to the ceremony. This is where the bulk of the photos are taken and the van is often a major attraction here! Once the ceremony is completed, we will drive some guests onto the reception where more photos and sometimes a few fun drives can be done.
