Community Matters Newsletter

Community Matters is produced every two weeks, circulated on Thursdays. In it you will find news and information we believe of use and interest to parish and district councillors as well as voluntary and community groups. 

The topics covered include local community news and events, funding sources, consultation exercises, training, employment and volunteering opportunities and sources of support to the community. We also mention websites or publications, not to duplicate but to raise awareness of their existence and potential value. Links to forthcoming Council meetings and the latest Council news are also given. 

We try to cover a broad range of relevant information and so articles are intentionally brief with, wherever possible, links to further details.

While we take great care in compiling the publication we cannot be held liable for any errors or omissions. Please also note that by including information West Somerset Council is not recommending or endorsing the products / facilities / services, we are simply providing a sign-posting function. We welcome relevant contributions and ask these are submitted as early as possible.
