Isle of Wedmore News – December
Parish Council business
Firstly, congratulations to all members of the Isle of Wedmore News committee on the production of the 500th issue. It was a first class magazine and good to re-read some of the historical content. A job well done !
The October meeting of the Council was well attended and local Scout Leader, Bill Belshaw gave details of proposed alterations to enlarge the interior of the building, providing facilities for the disabled and also to allow more members to join the various groups that meet there. The Council agreed in principle to support the proposals and planning permission would be sought in the near future. Mr Pat Benjamin also raised concerns about the amount of mud deposited on the highway, particularly in the Cocklake area during maize harvesting time. One cyclist had sustained serious injuries as a result of sliding on the mud. Members agreed to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year by planting a hedge or trees in line with other local authorities and organisations. It was also agreed to provide Christmas trees again this year for local churches and businesses and it would also support “Wedmore by Lamplight”. Several members attended the Remembrance Day Service at St Mary’s church. The Chairman read a lesson and laid a poppy wreath at the war memorial on behalf of the Parish Council.
Finally…on behalf of the Chairman and all Members of the Council I wish you and your families a very Happy Christmas.
