The future of the Langport library service appears safe from closure.
Somerset County Council has recommended 19 existing libraries be retained of which Langport is one along with Martock and Ilminster. The remaining 15 library buildings are to become community library partnerships (CLP), which would see local groups supporting the buildings in partnership with County Hall.
A final decision on these recommendations is expected in early November.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the consultation as it helped to reinforce just how essential the library is to the surrounding communities.
Congratulations to Curry Rivel in Bloom who scooped three awards this year winning the Gold award for their category as well as the Michael McGahey trophy for Exceptional community effort and also the joint winners of the Outstanding effort competition. A lot of hard work and dedication went into making the village look exceptional and even as we head into winter the war memorial area it is still looking lovely. Well done to everyone at CRiB.
There is a proposed 40 mph Speed Limit on the A378 between Curry Rivel and Portway.
