At the most recent meeting of the Parish Council tributes were paid to Andy Anderson, who passed away recently after a long illness. Members of the Parish Council paid tribute to him and his accomplishments both as chairman and within the Curry Rivel community. He will be sadly missed for his enthusiasm and commitment and for his great grace and sense of humour.
Several important matters were discussed and highlighted for future action:
1. parking in and around the school, High Street and The Green
2. repairs and improvements to playground equipment at Westfield
3. The Council is preparing to submit bids under the Somerset County Council Climate Emergency Fund
4. the appointment of a Parish Maintenance role to deal with a range of jobs to keep the village looking tidy and safe
A grant of £12000 had been awarded to the Curry Rivel Woods Community Trust project by South Somerset District Council ,which means that the fundraising target has been reached.
A role of Community Footpath Warden has been approved and a volunteer has stepped forward to take on that role which will be unpaid.
The Locum Clerk role has been extended to ensure continuity of Council affairs whilst a permanent replacement is recruited
The next meeting of the Parish Council is scheduled for Thursday 5th November by video. Members of the community wishing to attend should contact the clerk by e mail firstname.lastname@example.org
