 In the past couple of years numerous residents have approached me with "why doesn't somebody do something about the speeding through the village?"

  Believe me the PC have been on about it for years and dates have been made and cancelled for a community speed-watch.  Now we are due for it to happen in August but we need volunteers, as requested by Councillor Trevor Harris in the July issue of the parish magazine.  I was really upset to learn at the last PC meeting that only 3 people had volunteered.

 Come on Winsham - I know you can do better than that - perhaps it has never occurred to you, but may be that "somebody" could be "me".

The draft of  the Minutes of Parish Council will now become available to view within a week or so of the actual meeting . These Minutes need to be agreed as being accurate by the members of the Parish Council at their next meeting, so they cannot be regarded as a definitive report
of what was agreed or discussed. In practice, they do give a good idea of what went on at the meeting. Changes are quite rare. Remember however that the draft could be changed by agreement of the Parish Council, at the meeting that follows, usually held on the first Wednesday of the following month.
Should this happen, revised Minutes are published.

Cellnet Mast The new  mast has now been erected at the Upper Recreational Field, and this should be of great benefit to Vodafone and O2 cell net users, providing a 4G service. Presumably the other service providers did not consider the investment worthwhile.
The Parish as a whole will benefit from the financial payment that has been made in return for allowing access to the the Upper Rec.
