Isle of Wedmore News – April
Parish Council business
The February meeting of 2021 was once again held via ZOOM video conferencing and at the time of writing, no one has any idea when face to face meetings can resume. The meeting started with the Chairman welcoming a new Councillor. Cllr Jonathan Newton represents the Blackford Ward on the Council which is now at full strength. Members heard from the County Councillor, David Huxtable that Somerset had delivered more covid vaccinations than anywhere else in the country.
Members agreed to continue the share of funding for the 67 bus route. Part of the running costs is shared by the County Council and all parishes along the bus route between Burnham and Wells.
The Council was updated on the proposed community woodland behind Worthington Close. Tree planting had started and protective fencing would be installed where appropriate. Green Wedmore was given a grant towards the production of a cookbook and members also agreed to fund the production of safety signs designed by children to be placed in the Blackford area.
