Its summertime and all is relatively quiet in the District.
As reported in the last newsletter Ric Pallister has resigned as leader of South Somerset District Council. I can now confirm he has been replaced by Val Keitch. Cllr Keitch is the Liberal Democrat representative for Ilminster Town and Area West chairman. She recognises the Council, in line with all local authorities, is facing very challenging times but added how privileged she feels to have been selected to lead the authority. The next District elections will be held in May 2019 so she has just under a year to make a difference.
The Adopt a Path scheme is open to anyone in Somerset whether you are a walker, horse rider or cyclist, and almost any public right of way can be adopted. Volunteers are simply asked to use their chosen path as often as they can and report any problems they come across. If they want to, they can also help with some light maintenance, with equipment provided. Paths can range from 50 metres to several miles long. We have some lovely footpaths available in Curry Rivel — for maps take a look at the Curry Rivel Website in the local info section. If you fancy getting involved go to the website link www.somerset.gov.uk/get-involved/volunteering
