Mayor’s Notes mid December 23-late January 2024

“We held our Community Carol Service at St John’s Church in Highbridge this year. We were pleased to welcome children from Churchfield Church School and King Alfred’s School Brass Ensemble. They all added a lovely Christmas feel to the event. We had readers from local people including Emily Scott (Sopha), Ceri Joyce (Friends of the Memorial Hospital), Nadja McDevitt (Our Highbridge), Rev’d Richard Allen (Churches Together) and Jade Zerk (Hope Baptist Church). It was a lovely evening and enjoyed by all. Many thanks to Revd Martin Little for all his hard work in organising the event.

I supported St Andrews Church, attending the concert by Richard Lennox and friends. It was a wonderful evening with some interesting Christmas music. I then attended the Community Church Christmas Carol Service in Manor Gardens. It was good to see so many coming together to sing carols and it was dry! I then attended St Andrews Carol Service in the evening. Another community carol service which was well supported and had a very interesting interpretation of the usual bible readings. It certainly made us think! Just before Christmas, the Town Crier and I visited some of our Nursing Homes and the Memorial Hospital. It is always good to go out with Alastair as he has such a lot of knowledge of the people and places in our two towns!  There was a lot of laughter and chat at each home and in the hospital.

Since Christmas I have been working to further the work of the Climate and Ecology Working Group. There will be a report later.

I also attended the Local Community Network meeting in January. It was focused on how we could work together to address the devolution of services from Somerset Council, particularly the Highways Steward model.”.
