As the home cricket season has finished, dog walkers are now allowed back on the Recreation Field as long as their dogs are under control and, importantly their owners show consideration by cleaning up after them as the field is still used by others such as Monday's Walking Rugby group.

We are proud to introduce winfordvillage.info's latest contributor.  While very young, they have a superhuman knowledge base and can construct sentences and dialogue far better than you are used to here.

Yes, ChatGPT, the new and widely used Artificial Intelligence program has consented to write a couple of articles for this website, and pretty good they are to.

ChatGPT was asked to write short articles on "Rural Life on Exmoor" and "Living in Winsford, Exmoor".  Apart from the odd misleading claim ("fertile land"?) it has come up with impressive results.

It was also asked to come up with a couple of April Fools stories, neither of which was used on the day.

 

You can read these articles on our ChatGPT's view page, which can be found under About Winsford on the menu above.

On days when the International Space Station can be viewed (clouds permitting) we will show its image on the top of the page. Clicking the image will send you to NASA's page showing with times and relevant compass points.
