Wedmore Parish Council has applied for a £6,000 grant to fund a community point project.

If accepted the point would be a place, either in the village hall or a separate building, where residents could go to find out who their district and county councillors are, how to contact members of parliament and which phone numbers to call for information.

Police community support officer Julia Penn has also said she would like to start a beat surgery at the community point, where she could visit the village each month so residents could voice their concerns.

If proposals for the grant money are refused, Julia will hold surgeries in the parish council meeting hall in Grants Lane.
