Education Grants Available – John Nowes Exhibition Foundation

A message from Cllr Iris Coton

 

I am the current nominee to this foundation.

Currently, I am the Chairman.

 

This long-standing charity exists to help with the education of young people aged 16-25 years where the combined family income is below £35,000 / annum.

 

The recipients must live in Yeovil Without or a number of surrounding parishes such as Yeovil Town, Mudford, Chilthorne Domer, East Coker, West Coker, Limington, Barwick and Brympton.

 

Grants continued to be made in 2020. A total of  £7,400 was distributed to seven recipients. Once awarded, the trust endeavours to maintain a level of support throughout the young person’s course but the amount may vary depending on the number of applicants and the funds available from investments.

 

I have asked the parish clerk to advertise this year’s grant round on our website. This year, the final date for applications this year is 31st August. Application forms can be obtained from Amanda Goddard at Batten’s Mansion House, Princes Street, Yeovil. ( 01935 846225).

New Logo for YWPC

Over the past few months, Yeovil Without Parish Council has been trying to find ways to further engage the community it serves. To start this process the council decided to complete a full rebrand and work with local schools in the area to design a new logo to represent the Parish.

After receiving an abundance of extremely well thought out and creative logos from local children, the council decided to choose Ellie Wetherell from Westfield Academy’s submission of “Stand Together, Grow Together”. Ellie has received a £25 gift voucher for her efforts. Art Staff members Mr Evans and Miss Blackmore can be seen in the photo holding the winning submission.

The Parish Council would like to personally thank everyone who put forward logo designs, it was an extremely tough choice to decide. Yeovil Without will continue with public engagement over the next year including working with residents on new green initiatives for the parish, sites for new defibrillators and post COVID restriction events.

Waste and Recycling

31 July 2020: Much more recycling each week and far less waste will be the result of a decision today to roll out the expanded Recycle More kerbside collection service.

The service will start in phases, with all of Mendip from the end of October, all of South Somerset next summer, and Sedgemoor and Somerset West and Taunton after that.

Recycle More, which was successfully trialled with more than 1,000 Somerset families, was approved for roll-out by Somerset Waste Board. It will mean:

  • More recycling each week, adding plastic pots, tubs and trays, beverage cartons/Tetra Paks, small household batteries and small electrical items to the kerbside list.
  • A new tough reusable Bright Blue Bag for plastics and metals. The base-weighted bag folds flat when empty and has a Velcro closure.
  • Far emptier rubbish bins, which will be collected every three weeks.
  • Expanded recycling for communal collections, such as flats, and from schools.

Full details will be delivered to every home well before it starts in that area.

An easy move to reduced rubbish and extra recycling led residents in long-term large-scale Somerset trials of Recycle More to give it an 86% approval rating.
