Important News from the Wedmore Parish Council – April 2024


Parish Council Business

Hello Everyone!

Well, what can I say! Wedmore Parish Council has been buzzing with activity over
the past month, with a delightful blend of community support, infrastructure planning,
and collaborative initiatives taking centre stage!

One of the highlights of the month was the Parish Council’s decision to grant funds to various local organisations. Wedmore Tennis Club and Wedmore Health and Wellbeing were among the fortunate recipients, receiving support to further their community-focused initiatives and activities. The grants aim to enhance the well-being and recreational opportunities for residents of all ages in the Parish.

In addition to supporting local groups, the Parish Council has been diligently reviewing plans for the renovation of Theale Village Hall. With a keen eye for 8 April 2024 detail and a commitment to preserving the village’s heritage, council members have been working tirelessly to ensure that the renovation plans align with the needs and aspirations of the community.

Environmental stewardship also remains on the Parish Council’s agenda, We have been working hard to establish the maintenance schedule for the Blackford Brook along Poolbridge Road which should be being carried out by Somerset Council. We will continue to take proactive steps to protect and enhance the natural beauty of the area, the council continues to demonstrate its commitment to sustainable development  and conservation efforts.

The Parish Council are very pleased to report the development committee’s refusal of the proposed development at Combe Batch due to its adverse impact on rural character and conservation policies.
But the Parish Council’s dedication to community engagement doesn’t stop there. The parish council, the Women of Wedmore, various walking groups, and the Men’s Shed have joined forces to initiate a rolling maintenance schedule for the footpaths within the parish. We hope this collaborative effort will not only promote active lifestyles but also further encourage a strong sense of camaraderie among residents.
We need to do more together!

I’ve tried to keep it very light-hearted this month as the weather definitely hasn’t
been kind through February, but there is still a pressing need for more councillors to
join the ranks. ‘We still need more councillors, please,’ implores the Clerk! With vacant
seats waiting to be filled, now is the perfect time for community-minded individuals
to step up and make a difference in their village.

Nominations for the prestigious Henry Butt Award have begun trickling in. As the deadline approaches, residents are encouraged to submit their nominations for individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the community. There’s still time to nominate, so don’t miss the opportunity to recognise the unsung heroes among us!

The Parish Council remains committed to serving the needs of the residents wanting
to encourage a vibrant and inclusive community spirit. With ongoing projects and
collaborative efforts in full swing, the future looks bright for our charming corner of
