Further to last month’s article about the Recreation ground, councillors have met with Sedgemoor District Council’s Parks Projects officer. Most of the play equipment and apparatus has been condemned as unsafe but we have been advised that we can apply to Viridor Credits to help us replace the equipment. This is in addition to RLT2 funding which is likely to be available. Application for the latter has now been made. In the interim, quotes are being obtained for the various works and purchases that are needed. If anyone knows any local businesses that would be prepared to donate, please approach them on our behalf.
Regarding the previously mentioned Pepperhill Farm bridlepath, there have been several local objections. Plans are now being redrawn with the possibility of an alternative route. We await further communication from Mr Woodward at Sedgemoor District Council after he has discussed this with the new owners.
Most of you will have heard the sad news that Mary White has died unexpectedly. We would like to say how much we appreciated Mary’s tireless work on behalf of bridlepaths within the parish. Our thoughts are with the family at this time and we would like to say that we will greatly miss Mary’s input.
