Leigh on Mendip Remembered Them

 
On parade at 11amThank you everyone who made the day something special to remember - as 'we remember them'. The bunting and baking together with the morning parade, the special sounding of the siren at 3pm and then our social distanced street gatherings - what a day. It was great to be able to meet and speak to neighbours - albeit we had to raise our voices to hear each other at a distance!  

...and thank you, Martin Carter, for making it happen!

Winner!  Winner!  Winner!

The Parish Councillors have now conferred and have identified a winner for the bunting competition - by the smallest of margins. We are really pleased to announce that the winner is ............
Trish Gronow at Church Walk.
Well done Trish. We will be in touch to deliver your prize.
Thanks again everyone for taking part. There were some great displays, poignant family history shared and creative images submitted. Not only did we remember the sacrifices of the past but made the day one to remember ourselves.

Everyone's photos of the day can be seen here. If you have more photos to remember the day to share please upload here (you'll need a gmail account) or just email to vedaylom@gmail.com. (You are agreeing to the photos being shared and possibly published in the media.)  The photos are also in the Photo Gallery.

BE A VILLAGE RANGER


Volunteers have already made a difference.

How can you help?



VILLAGE FOOTPATHS

The Parish Council is looking for volunteers to help look after our footpaths, primarily any minor pruning if necessary and reporting any significant access issues to the Parish Path Liaison Officer (Parish Councillor David Sparkes), who can then liaise with Somerset Rights of Way. To identify a footpath and stile which you may like to "adopt" click here. We've had a good response so far but there are still some left! See the current list here. Note that it is the responsibility of the landowner to maintain Rights of Way.



FIX MY STREET
A handy website for reporting problems to both Somerset and Mendip Councils (fly tipping, street lights, pavement, pot holes etc). See what has already been reported.  The site automatically sends a report to the relevant authority. Don't just talk about it - report it at fixmystreet . You can still report directly to the Councils (details are on the "Village Services" page).
