So much has happened over the last two months since the last Parish Magazine but in brief:


Sedgemoor is at the heart of the local response to the Corona Pandemic where a team was quickly established to be able to deliver the many Government guidelines and policies to help people through the emergency. Receiving and delivering food to the ‘shielded’, finding accommodation for the homeless in the area, continuing all the vital services and working with the emergency services to try and keep people safe.


The SDC officers worked tirelessly, mostly from home, and the wheels of local government continued by the use of remote meetings; Licensing, Audit and Standards, Planning and Executive meetings all met. It is planned that remote meetings will continue for the foreseeable future.


Polly Costello organised the Wedmore Village coronavirus volunteers and Will has been part of the ‘Responders’ network and helped with the SDC local deliveries.


Both Polly and Will want to thank all of the heroes of local services especially the waste collectors who continued to work.  Also the local shops that stayed open for the communities and have done so well in helping out the more vulnerable residents.  They also thank not only the NHS and Care Workers but also services such as the posties and local delivery drivers.


At the time of writing this, SDC wish to point out that although parks are open, the equipment in them are still off limits.


The tips have started to reopen but with new rules in place.


Please keep an eye on the Sedgemoor District Council website for further updates and information or contact Polly Costello or Will Human
