Polly attended the Grants Award Sub-Committee. There were 4 applications totalling £7,200, amongst which £2,000 was awarded to Wedmore Scout Group to help with the refurbishment of the kitchen. There was £30k left in the pot for the last round of applications in the current year and if not spent, the money doesn't roll over.
Will was one of three Councillors to sit on a panel to decide who was to take up the position of Assistant Director for Inward Growth and Development. He also attended the Axe Brue Drainage Board Finance Committee and Audit and Standards Committee at SDC.
Polly chaired two Licensing Panels. The first was Hackney Private Hire driver's renewals (several drivers had failed to undertake mandatory safeguarding training, and it was our duty to determine whether they were fit and proper to hold their licence). Two were surrendered and nine will be revoked on 31st January unless they attend another safeguarding session that was on 30th January. The second panel was an exempt report and therefore the details cannot be shared.
Will and Polly both attended their Parish Coiuncil meetings, and Polly chaired a PC Highways committee meeting in Wedmore. She also went to the WPAA (Wedmore Play Area Association) and the Adapting the Levels Environmental meeting, which was focussing on Tealham and Tadham Moors and she is hoping that lot more the Young Farmers attend this interesting group as it is of great importance to the next generation.
Both had meetings with local residents on various issues within the community, they are always happy to help if they can.
