Somerset Reports

Shepton Mallet, Somerset

Review of Shepton Mallet by Fran Wulf on September 28th, 2006
I have lived in Shepton now for 4 years. I have also lived in a beautiful town, Lucerne, in Switzerland, for 10 years. I can't think of two more extreme experiences and yet they both provide me with something that I love in a place. Character, beautiful architecture, and lovely people. Unfortunately, Shepton has been neglected from a 'business' point of view. The town has sadly been deprived of proper funding and attention from the powers that be, and it is not at present a place that people are proud to be a part of or associated to. I have a business here and am needing to be involved in a lot of background work to lift the negative and depressed state of affairs. Thank goodness the tides are now turning and we welcome the Bristol Academy of Performing Arts who are giving new life to The Amulet. This, linked with Shepton 21 project, should start to turn things around, sooner rather than later if I can help it! I want to see Shepton growing more towards what I experienced in Lucerne, where people take a real pride in their town and show appreciation for the beauty that is there.
