Parish Council business
The November meeting was well attended and Members heard two presentations by Mrs Jean Winter from “Green Wedmore” and Mrs Cathy Butterworth, a member of the Neighbourhood Plan Committee.
Both presentations were well received. It was noted that the Fingerpost restoration project was nearing completion and the Members agreed to make a further grant in order to successfully draw the project to a close. Grants were also made to “Wedmore by Lamplight” for the provision of street entertainment and the usual burial grants to local churches.
The Council has asked a local architect to draw up plans for creating disabled access and a staff parking space at the front of the Council Rooms in Grants Lane. It is hoped that this project will be completed soon subject to the appropriate planning permission being granted.
The recently installed lights marking the walkway from the car park to the village centre have been vandalised. Fortunately, the electricity is still connected but a significant sum of money has to be spent in extra security of the lights.
Just before Christmas some boundary hedges and trees were cut back as they were encroaching onto parking spaces and residents’ gardens
Finally, on behalf of the Chairman and Members of the Council may I wish you and your families a very Happy New Year.
