Parish Council News for September:

Parish Allotments:

As reported last month, the first meeting of potential allotment holders has taken place. If you thought your name was on the list for an allotment, but you were not contacted to attend the meeting, please email the Parish Clerk.

The Parish Council hopes to take ownership of the land in October, but much work will need to be done by volunteers to create the allotment spaces.

Community Grants:

Beckington Parish Council is delighted to confirm that it has awarded the Network magazine a community grant of £50 to help towards it costs. Members of the council noted what a wonderful local resource the magazine is and sends its thanks and appreciation to all the volunteers who create and deliver the magazine every month.

New Grit Bins:

The Council has reviewed all the grit bins within the Parish and has agreed to buy five new bins. One for Rudge, the others for locations within Beckington Village. Somerset County Council (SCC) is the authority responsible for keeping the bins filled up and it will then be down to residents to spread the grit around when needed. You may have seen reports that SCC are looking to spend a lot less on road gritting this winter, it may well be a community effort to keep many of the parish's roads passable if the bad weather comes.

Community Connector Training:

Members of the Parish Council have agreed to under take training to better equip them to be able to deal with parishioners' enquiries with regards to local services and support available. If you would be interested in attending this training, please contact the Parish Clerk.
