Come along to the Community Centre this Thursday to find out the detailed proposals for the 20mph zone. You’ll be able to talk to NSC traffic officers and make comments on the scheme.
The Parish Council has been pressing for a scheme like this for a long time, and we know that many villagers can’t wait for it to happen: if you are in that large group, please get along to support the scheme – it does just about everything the Council has hoped for.
The Parish Council have received a lovely letter of thanks from Crockerne Primary School for allowing the Chestnut Field to be used for their Circus event, which raised an incredible £3300 for the kids at Crockerne.
Bristol is introducing a Clean Air Zone to reduce harmful pollution from older and more polluting vehicles. The zone will start operating later this year.
We would like your help to make sure people driving into Bristol are aware of the zone.
To help you do this, we have produced a community toolkit. The toolkit includes information about the zone and items to help make sure as many people as possible are aware of the zone and how it affects them.
Thank you to everyone who has been collecting and donating to help the people of Ukraine and everyone affected by the conflict.
Sadly, it looks as though aid and support will be needed for some time.
We’re working with Voluntary Action North Somerset (VANS) to support local communities to help Ukraine and to help make sure the right aid is available at the right time.
We’ll share information from VANS as soon as we can.
There are also a number of national and international organisations which you might like to donate to. Please do check the validity of any organisation you donate to – unfortunately there will always be scammers who try to take advantage of situations, including the Ukraine crisis. Here are some links to just some organisations:
With everything that’s happening you may be feeling anxious, angry, uneasy or low. We’ll all be feeling differently and that’s ok.

You can find information about local support services and suggestions on how to manage your wellbeing on our mental health pages.
We’re proud of the strengths in our community, and the vitality and benefits brought by our citizens from around the world.
We urge everyone in our North Somerset community to support each other with friendship, kindness and understanding.
Hate crime is unacceptable and should always be taken seriously. There is help and support available. You can find out more including how to report a hate crime and details of local support on the Safer Stronger North Somerset and Stand Against Racism and Inequality (SARI) websites.
We will be sending the design to the printers on the 18th March and would value the input of all local residents to double check that all elements are in the correct places / correctly labeled, are you happy with the icons used in the key? etc. If there are elements missing which you feel are important to be included please let us know. We have deliberately chosen not to name any businesses or places that may change in the next 5 – 10 years.
