The parish council received reports over the weekend that parts of the cemetery car park had been vandalised with graffiti sprayed over a number of the boulders marking the car park boundary and the new cycle gate.
Representatives from Cheddar Parish Council went to the site on Monday 4th September to ascertain the damage and any action that needed to be taken. The parish council’s contractor has been asked to clean the areas affected as soon as is practically possible.
The parish council would like to thank parishioners for their vigilance and ask that any incidents of this nature be reported so that remedial action may be taken.
Residents are advised that the parish council has been made aware of the closure of Upper New Road, from the junction of Holwell Lane southwards for a distance of 200 or so metres.
The closure will commence on 2nd October 2017 for three weeks and is due to works required for new sewers, site access and a footpath.
The alternative signed route advised to us by Somerset County Council will be via the A38 and A39. Residents who require further information on the alternative route are advised to visit www.roadworks.org
The Summer Bank Holiday on Monday 28 August means all collections that week, up to Friday 1 September, will take place one day later, including Friday pick-ups on Saturday 2 September.
Recycling sites remain on their usual schedules throughout the week, including all 16 opening at 8am on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday.
Following the recent relaxation of weekend hours for permit holders, customers with permits for vans, pick-ups, campervans, minibuses and car-towed trailers can use any recycling site, when open, at any time on weekdays, weekends and bank holidays.
