Parish Council News for September 2019

Vacancy for a Parish Seward:

The Parish Council is looking to appoint a Parish Seward. The position is self-employed and will be around a day's work per week, this could be all in one day or spread over the 7 days, it would be up to the post holder to organise their time. Tasks would involve cutting / strimming grass / cutting hedges, sweeping roads /pavements, maintenance of the Councils assets (mostly the Bus Shelters), filling grit bins, emptying bins and all sorts of other odd jobs that will come up within the year. The Parish Council will set a jobs list every month and expect time sheets to be submitted. As the post is self-employed the Parish Seward would need to provide their own equipment. Overtime the Parish Council will start to obtain some of its own equipment for use. While a paid role, this position is very much a community one for someone who is proud of the Parish and would like to spend some of their time keeping it looking nice. If you are interested in applying to become the Parish Seward, then email the parish Clerk with your CV, covering letter and your proposed rates.

Church Street / Hill One-way proposal:

At the annual Parish Meeting in March a resident requested that the Parish Council apply to Somerset County Council to make Church Street / Hill a one-way road. The Parish Council resolved not to take any action until it had consulted with the residents of the roads. A letter was hand delivered inviting a response. The Parish Council received many responses, this showed a majority supported keeping the road as it is. As there would have needed to have been a large majority of residents in favour of the one-way proposal for the Parish Council to support it, it is not something the Parish Council will pursue. However, the Parish Council will be writing to both the schools to ask that that have and enforce a rigid policy for parents dropping of their children at the school. It was noted that some of the journeys start from Beckington Village itself, so within walking distance of the school.

Footpath to the Farm Shop:

The Parish Council is actively exploring a way to create a footpath from Beckington to White Row farm shop that doesn't involve crossing the A36, this would rely entirely on the good will of landowners as curtly no right of way exists. The Parish Council does hold some money that can be used to install styles or steps or gates.
