Self-harming Adrian Birch 2018-12-06 13:57:32

The Director of Public Health, has used her annual report to highlight rising levels of self-harm in Somerset. Hospital admissions for self-harming show increasing numbers, particularly for girls and young women aged 10-24, with a peak around the age of 15. These are mostly one-off rather than repeat admissions but Somerset levels are higher than both the regional and national averages. The survey carried out this spring, found 28 per cent of girls and 19 per cent of boys reporting that they sometimes hurt themselves in some way when they felt stressed or worried. The report highlights the need for open and honest conversations with young people and promotion of more positive responses to stressful situations. Lots of useful information, for children, parents and carers is available on the Somerset Children & Young People Health & Wellbeing website https://www.cypsomersethealth.org/sh or by visiting www.kooth.com

Ham Sewerage Works Traffic Adrian Birch 2018-11-07 16:18:39

It has become clear that some Wessex Water contractors vehicles are still using Ham Road and this was reported to WW at the latest CSM Parish Council meeting (5th Nov) in which Stuart Lewis and Adam Lynch from Wessex Water were in attendance. All Traffic should be using the new access track from the A358.
 
As a result WW have recommitted to the PC that they are working to ensure that this does not happen and will take steps if offenders are indentified.
 
Villagers are encouraged to let WW know of miscredents using the local rate contact number 0345 600 4 600.
 
If there does happen to be further incidents with contractors’ traffic then  please ring with as much supporting information as possible (Livery/Reg No/Time) so WW can look in to it; please ensure that Adam Lynch is mentioned then the incident will be allocated to him directly to action.
 
The PC was also presented with a cheque from WW to pay for new Neighbourhood Watch signs along Ham Rd.

Somerset Libraries Adrian Birch 2018-05-16 22:43:23

Time is running out to have your say

 

Anyone with an interest in Somerset’s libraries has one more month to take part in the County Council’s consultation on the future of its Library Service.

The consultation ends on Wednesday 13 June and more than 4,000 responses have been received so far.

Somerset County Council is keen for anyone yet to complete the questionnaire to go online at www.somerset.gov.uk/librariesconsultation, view the proposal on the future of the library they visit most often and give their feedback. Alternatively, complete the survey at your local library.

Decision makers want to know the impact potential changes to the library service would have on you, your family and communities. It also provides an opportunity to comment on the proposals and make alternative suggestions.

Councillor David Hall, Somerset County Council’s Cabinet Member with responsibility for libraries, said: “With just a month to go before the library consultation ends, I encourage anyone who has yet to have their say to complete a questionnaire and make their voice count. It’s important to us as many people as possible tell us their views on our proposals and how they may affect them before we make our final decision.”

A final decision on Somerset’s library service is expected later this year.

Ends
