The Society, with the involvement of students at Bridgwater College, undertook the restoration work to a buoy, originally located to guide shipping into the port of Bridgwater. This is located at the town's dockside, and commemorates the lifelong voluntary work for our community of Betty Dimes, member of the Society. pics © J Napthine

To celebrate the centenary of the opening of the present Town Bridge over the River Parrett, which occurred in 1883, the Society arranged the fitting of lanterns at each corner of the bridge structure, of a style akin to those which had previously gone missing. pics© K Dewar
