The May meeting was the Annual meeting of the Parish Council. It was primarily a business meeting covering matters such as approval of year end accounts, deciding which members would serve on the various committees etc. Cllr Neil Ellis and Cllr Sue Worrall were elected as Chair and Vice-Chair respectively for a further 12 months. Members agreed to upgrade the heating and flooring at the Council Rooms following a recent asbestos survey. Plans have also been submitted to Sedgemoor District Council for approval to provide a disabled parking space outside the Council Rooms with appropriate access into the building.
