During the summer, poet Dean Parkin went along with the Rural Coffee Caravan to visit Combs – and learned that many paths lead to the village bench.
Make, Do & Friends in Combs
As a prelude to the Connect activities he’ll be running, Dean visited Combs to chat with locals about their favourite spots in the village.
As they sipped coffee and ate prepacked biscuits – no slices of cake in this socially-distanced era – residents shared stories about local characters, their favourite views … and the village bench.
Dean will be returning to Combs in the autumn, to gather more stories and poems and to find out why the village bench is so special.
