YOUR VILLAGE NEEDS YOU

The Parish Council currently has TWO vacancies.    
Please let us know if you would like to be co-opted and help us to benefit the village and resolve local issues. Maybe you have previously been a Parish Councillor or you've recently moved into the village (>12months), any age over 18. Learn more about how we influence our public services, planning etc.
VILLAGE AGENT
John Lapwood is our Village Agent. He offers free and confidential practial support to local people and community groups. More information here.
        DEFIBRILLATOR TRAINING

The First Aid/Defibrillator training session being held on Sunday 5th March is now fully booked. We are taking names of people interested in attending further First Aid training. Please leave your name with the Parish Council Clerk, Anthea Brooks, email: lom.pc@btinternet.com or ring 01761 418737 or ring Cllr Dave Mattick 01373 812734.  Currently these courses are being paid for by the Parish Council but future courses may incur a charge. 

The defibrillators are installed at the Memorial Hall and the Recreation Field Clubhouse. 
OPEN GARDENS & HERITAGE TRAIL - 2017           Can you help??
Friends of Leigh Church (FOLC) are planning an Open Gardens day on Saturday 8th or 15th July 2017 which we hope to combine with a Heritage Trail (external viewing only for some of the older properties). We are looking for volunteers to open their garden (large and small) in the village and to help organise the event. If interested please contact Grahan Harris (812889) or Chris Cudmore (813735).

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).
