Spring Cheer

Over 1000 mixed bulbs were planted in Apex Park this week to spread some spring cheer. Following two postponements due to bad weather, Friends of Apex Park Improvements Group and Sedgemoor District Council's Clean Surroundings Team planted the bulbs to the west and south areas of the lake that should provide some colour within the park next spring. Thanks to all those who helped out. 14/12/18


Councillors Allowances

A 32% rise does seem a massive in these days of austerity. In truth, the increase takes the hourly rate of the seven Executive members up to £5.40 an hour, based on 35-hours a week. Given the number of hours worked by the seven Executive members, which were verified by the Independent Panel, the increase in allowance does not take the 'wage' up to the level of the Living Wage Foundation from 1st January 2019 of £9.00 per hour.
