November Parish Council Meeting

Due to the date of the November PC meeting we missed the deadline for the December/January issue of ‘Roundabout’ so our correspondent’s report makes a guest appearance on the website;

At the November PC meeting it was confirmed that the Parish has received a £400 grant from Somerset County Council’s Improving Lives fund, to be used to provide equipment for the Village Hall. The Hall will also benefit from a Parish Council grant of £800 for essential maintenance of safety equipment, accessibility, and to support much needed improvement to the heating system. 

South Somerset District Council’s Christmas Tree recycling scheme will include Aller this year. A drop off point will be available at the Rec from around 4 January, full details to be confirmed.

The annual review of Cemetery Rules was completed with councillors considering examples from nearby towns and parishes with particular concern for clarity and accessibility. In addition to copies being available for download from the Parish website, on request from the Council and from local Funeral Directors, printed copies are available at the Hall and Church.

The next meeting will be on Monday 13th January, 7.30pm at Aller Village Hall.
