HELP US SUPPORT THE RUNNING OF OUR VILLAGE COMMUNITY CENTRE

We are looking for new volunteers to boost our numbers. The Community Centre is an important part of our village, currently providing a place where many of us can enjoy a range of clubs and activities.

What do we do?

  • We meet approximately 6 times a year.
  • We support the running of the hall including monitoring of cleaning, refurbishment, hall bookings, accounts and health and safety.
  • Some members act as key holders.

 

We have cleaners, a caretaker and booking secretary looking after the day to day running of the hall.

If sufficient volunteers do not come forward we will be compelled to, in the first instance, request the Parish Council take over the management of the Community Centre to Taunton Deane.

We are entering an exciting new phase for the hall and would love you to join us. Thank you for taking the time to read our flyer and please talk to your friends and use social media to rally support.

Please email Becky Smith or Caroline Cooper if you are interested in joining our committee or would like to find out more.

Our Website

The aim of our website is to provide useful information about the village 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.

On our website we outline the roles and services provided by the Parish Council along with details of our councillors, dates, meetings and copies of agendas and minutes. This site also enables you to find out more about our community and the various activities taking place throughout the year, as well as obtain up to date information about local services and businesses.

Please contact us if you have questions concerning the work of the Parish Council, or if you would like to get involved in our work in any way.


2018 Projects

  1. Build a Multi-Use Games Area on one of the tennis courts and upgrade the other court for continued use by villagers
  2. Improve the play provision for 6-12 year olds available on the main field. For details of the proposed play provision plan and timeframe please click here
  3. Make improvements to the paths both within the village and in surrounding areas (where possible)

Newsletters

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. In the past these have been printed and distributed as a paper copy, however we are now moving to digital distribution and their availability on our website. 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 , please click on the ‘Join Our Mailing List’ button on the right side of this page or click here.
