There were too some wonderfully planted beds, a mixture of flowers and vegetables, by the Church of St John the Baptist in the centre of town, where my co-workers and I sat and ate our lunch on the lawn enjoying the August sunshine.
Later that evening a further blooming of 21st Century culture manifested itself near the Library - crowds of youngsters with their faces lit by mobile phone screens, playing Pokemon.
“I thought you were supposed to walk round catching them on your phone?” I asked a colleague.
“Apparently, there’s a Pokemon gym here where you can fight other people.”
You learn something every day!
(I see, thanks to my friend Google, that there is an active Community Arts Association in Yeovil, so I look forward to attending some of their events on future visits.)
