Somerset Needs a Demonym!
Fed up with being called a “Carrot-Cruncher”? A “Yokel”? A “Wurzel”? Somerset seems to have these labels thrown at it, without any actual background (well, alright, ‘Wurzel’ does have a little background), and usually in a derogatory way.
Well, it’s time to change this. Our proud county has seen ups and downs, battles and floods, myths and cheese. We know how great our county is. We know how innovative our county is (again, cheese. And music festivals.) We know how beautiful our county is. So we needs to give ourselves a name to be proud of.
