Congratulations to the local fruit grower June Small of Charlton Orchards on the award of an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.

While she and her husband Robin are very well known for their horticultural interests we here in the parish also know June as an author of a history of Creech St Michael.

Before that she was a teacher at the local primary school, so she is a lady of many talents.

The June meeting covered three important issues.

The report given by the Allotment Group were keen to find suitable land within the parish for over 50 residents, who have expressed an interest.  Various sites were proposed and further investigation was required.  If an allotment site could be found, it would be a great community asset and would bring the residents together for social and environmental reasons.

The proposed plans to provide suitable footpaths and bus stops at Adsborough were costly, and alternative options should be discussed, which could be more economic.

The future of the management of the Recreation Field was a hot topic of discussion.  The council appear to be undecided which is the most suitable route to take to improve the site and management of this area.  An Extra Ordinary Meeting of the Parish Council will take place on Monday, 27th June at 7pm in the village hall to discuss this subject.

Out of the five planning applications four were supported.   The usual finances, highways and rights of way issues were discussed.

The next full Parish Council meeting is on Monday, 4th July at 7pm.

Jun 2011 Fly-tipping in Hyde Lane Creech St Michael 2011-06-02 21:41:29

Article written by Eric Chown, Web Publicity

Two large plastic bags of hazardous waste were found on the old Hyde Lane road between the school and the recreation ground on 1st June.  The material looked like broken up asbestos sheets.

The find was immediately reported to the Taunton Deane as the material could have been handled by children and placed them at risk. They promised early action.

With the reduction of opening hours for the local refuse centre this kind of dumping may be on the increase.  We all need to be on the look out for illegal dumping.

Visit the Taunton Deane Borough Council website for advice on what to do if further fly-tipping is found.

Residents can properly dispose of their own household asbestos refuse if they follow the guidelines from the TDBC website or by ringing customer services on 01823 356356.
