Cotford St Luke Parish Council



The County Council Elections are coming May 2nd 2019. 

Information will be up in the Parish Council Boards from Saturday 16th March 2019

It is also time to elect our Local Parish Council too. If you feel you would like to become a Parish Councillor and you have something to offer to your local community please contact the Parish Clerk Helen Young hyoung51@btinternet.com  07955187179

A good councillor has integrity, honesty, a will to help his/her community and has some spare time. Happy to work within a team with lots of ideas as to how to benefit the community of Cotford St Luke.

The new Parish Councillors will receive training in the role.


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 from  substance abuse  workers and our local PCSO’s to offer advice and support on the downside of taking illegal substances. It was well attended and regarded as a success.


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.  Our website is currently in need of some redesigning. If you have any ideas/expertise please contact the Parish Clerk.   Thank you for the new pictures already sent.  New ones always welcome especially of activities.

If you have any ideas about what you would like to see please contact us
Via hyoung51@btinternet.com. 01823 433706

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


2018/19 Annual Report will be published  after the next Parish Council Meeting on 21st March 2019.   The date for the Parish Annual Meeting will be decided at that meeting.


Newsletters

The Newsletter will continue as some of our villagers do not use the internet.  Cllr Linda Featherstone will oversee the production of the new newsletter in 2019.

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

Alas the last newsletter uploaded to site was 2017.  We will endeavour to amend this over the coming weeks.  (18/3/2019 Parish Clerk) 

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.
