No increase in Wedmore precept

RESIDENTS of Wedmore won't see their precept rise in the coming financial year, after the parish council decided to freeze it.
Members of the council said the decision not to raise the £64,840 precept, which was increased by 10 per cent last year, was made to ease the burden on villagers following council tax increases.
Council chairman Mal Johnson said: “We all thought that we had taken the right direction by going for a zero per cent increase, it’s in line with what’s going on in the country as a whole.”
