Tonight 11th April 2019 is the last council meeting of the previous Parish Council.  Many Councillors are stepping down after years of respected service to our community.

Agenda Meeting 11th April 2019

A new Parish Council will take up the responsibility for Cotford St Luke on 2nd May 2019.  The first meeting of this new council will be on 9th May 2019.

The County Council and Parish Council Elections are coming May 2nd 2019. 

You are too late to apply.  The closing date was 3rd April 2019 at 4pm to get your papers in.

If you were not quick enough but would still like to consider being a Parish Councillor please contact our Parish Clerk Helen Young hyoung51@btinternet.com  07955187179

Public Art Project

Taunton Deane Taunton Deane Borough Council have allocated a sum of money to Cotford St Luke for a Public Art Project.

This is an exciting venture that could provide enhancement to one or more areas of public land within Cotford St Luke.  The brief is broad(and somewhat vague!) but could be in the form of landscaping/sculpture/leisure facility/or something practical that is incorporated with some sort of art installation. As a capital sum the money cannot be used to provide a service i.e. art classes or equipment.

The project will be publicised to artists across Somerset and Devon who will be asked to bring ideas forward. We are lucky that this area has a number of artists with broad experience in delivering this type of project.

Over the coming months the Parish Council will be exploring ideas and working with artists towards the goal of providing Cotford St Luke with an outstandin piece of public art for our village.

Do you have any suggestions or ideas you would like to put forward? The Parish Council would love to hear from you. Contact Cllr Linda Featherstone. Email: lester@featherstones.plus.com. She will be very happy to discuss the project with you.


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.

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 Nov 2018 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.
