Update: The Drug Bus was here Friday 22nd February 2019 

The idea of the bus was to give people, children and adolescents the opportunity to experience a dreary off putting drugs den with help on hand to offer advice and support on the downside of taking illegal substances.

The occupants then experienced being arrested for the illegal use of substances and thrown in a cell. There are consequences to every action.  The Chairman John Hassall and other local Parish Councillors attended and many villagers. We will post the final statistics when we have them.

Our local PCSO’s were in attendance Sharon and Louise. to answer any questions and to offer advice. The bus was here thanks to them.  Well done to all.

Thanks to Cllr Green for sharing on Facebook.

 


 


Our Village (Parish Council) Website

The aim of our website is to provide useful information about the village in general and the activities of the Parish Council.

The first residents of Cotford St Luke moved into our village in 1998, since then our village has grown to around 950 houses, situated within an area of natural beauty.

Our website is in need of some upgrading and redesigning.  If you have any lovely pictures of the village and events and want to share please feel free to send to Helen Young The new Parish Clerk
If you have any ideas about what you would like to see please contact us
Via hyoung51@btinternet.com. 01823433706

Please leave your name and contact details and Helen will get back to you.

We also need your thoughts on the following ideas.

  1. Possible electric point for cars in the village. Is there a need?
  2. Removal of Bus shelters due to vandalism. How would this effect your life?
  3. Sunday bus twice a day to Taunton and back on a Sunday.

Please send your feedback to the above address or get involved with the chat on facebook.


2018 Annual Report will be published shortly after the next Parish Council Meeting on 21st March 2019


Newsletters

The Newsletter will continue as some of our villagers do not use the internet.  Cllr Linda Featherstone will oversee production.

So we will communicate to the Village via the Newsletters and the Parish Notice boards.

1-2 times a year the Parish Council compiles a newsletter providing useful information about our village and also outlining the work we have completed over the last few months.  If you wish to view the most recent newsletter please click here. Alternatively if you would rather we send you the latest newsletter on its release via email instead of print , please click on the ‘Join Our Mailing List’ button on the right side of this page or click here.


 

Donating Your Winter Fuel Payment – An Idea Worth Warming To

Somerset Community Foundation has launched this year’s Surviving Winter campaign, encouraging people to join the growing number of contributors who donate some or all of their Winter Fuel Payment each year to help local people living in fuel poverty. Last year, over 400 older people in Somerset were helped to keep warm and better connected through the winter months, thanks to local donors and pensioners who gave to Surviving Winter. When a person receives their Surviving Winter grant, it doesn’t just go towards paying the heating bill. It is also the first step towards connecting them to a local community partner; this can become the foundation for a new relationship that can help to overcome the isolation and loneliness many older people experience. To donate to Surviving Winter, visit www.somersetcf.org.uk/winter or call 01749 344949. Gift Aid forms are also available to download from the Somerset Community Foundation website.
