But there is also the start of a new feature entitled Yeovil History Files – stories about the town’s past, people and places.
There are photo features from the Castaway Theatre Group and the Helen Laxton School of Dance, while we also take a look back to 1971 when Yeovil Town played Arsenal in the Third Round of the FA Cup at Huish.
There is also an interesting feature in the monthly Glovers Glory section where we remember Ernest Hyman who died as a result of an injury he sustained as a player for Yeovil Town in a game against Taunton back on Boxing 1926.
We also take a look at the planned £23m revamp of the Octagon Theatre in Yeovil, more detailed plans involved in the Yeovil Refresh project, while one Coronation Street fan from Yeovil had a surprise phone call from the actor who played evil Pat Phelan in the long-running drama series.
And, not forgetting, some memories of the Carry On films from local fans and tributes from local people who met the late Dame Barbara Windsor.
