Security light needed in Wedmore

WOMEN working in businesses in Wedmore have asked for a security light to the car park to make them feel safer at night. The parish council received a request for the light as the winter nights draw in and the streets get darker earlier.

WOMEN working in businesses in Wedmore have asked for a security light to the car park to make them feel safer at night.

The parish council received a request for the light as the winter nights draw in and the streets get darker earlier.

Women working in The Borough say they would like to use the new car park off Cheddar Road, but do not feel safe using the walkway from the road to the facility as it is very dark.

The car park was built as an answer to congestion problems in the centre of the village, but both visitors and people who work in Wedmore businesses are still parking on the roads, making driving difficult.

At the Wedmore Parish Council meeting last week, members agreed that the walkway was very dark and a light to the car park would encourage more people to use it.

Clerk Simon Emary said: "Our budget is going to be really stretched as we are extending the village cemetery as well, but I will get some prices for the work and report back at the next full council meeting.
