From Somerset Waste Partnership – Christmas/New Year Collections:

Garden waste pick-ups will resume from Monday 10 January.

From the Parish Clerk – Local Elections May 2022:

As well as elections for the new unitary Somerset Council, the government has proposed that elections to parish councils across Somerset are brought forward from 2023, to also take place on 5 May 2022. It is expected that the notice of elections for this date will be issued on 21 March 2022.

The Government’s intention is to ensure that all local elections in Somerset remain aligned. Therefore, the Government is proposing that in May 2022 parish councillors will be elected for a term of five years, instead of the current four-year term.

At county level, the number of members elected will double from 55 to 110, enabling them to assume responsibility for all local government functions for Somerset, including those of the current four district councils, in April 2023. Two candidates will be elected for each existing electoral division of the county council. It is anticipated that there will be a full boundary review after the May 2022 elections and ahead of the subsequent elections in May 2027.

Until the unitary council is vested in April 2023, the 110 new members will have responsibility for the county council’s functions and the transition to the new council. District councils and their members will continue to fulfil their functions until 31 March 2023.

Please remember the Countryside Code:

‘Keep dogs on a lead at all times near farm animals – by law you’re obliged to keep your dog under control.’

A person in charge of a dog, whether they are the owner or not, must clean up after their dog has fouled in a public place. Failure to do so may lead to a fine or prosecution in court.

Not disposing a ‘poo’ bag correctly is also a dog fouling and littering offence.
