Villages to get a spruce-up
8:00pm Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
A PLAN of action to clean up villages in South Somerset’s Neroche Ward was agreed at a meeting led by county and district councillor Linda Vijeh at the Bell Inn, Broadway.
The district council’s Streetscene team is collating a list of jobs from parishes to allow the youth offending team and those working on community payback service to begin work to spruce up each village from September 30.
Parish councillors Lyn Mortimer and Paul Trueman, Somerset probation worker Dorian Simmonds, Bell Inn landlord Daran Bevan, Streetscene manager Chris Cooper and Ashill village hall secretary Jane Simmonds-Short met Linda to finalise the work schedule.
Each parish council will be billed £50 for each day of the clean-up to pay for supervision.
The project is also receiving extra financial support from McDonald’s in Taunton and the Bell Inn is providing the use of its function room for free.
