FIVE local action teams have officially joined together in an effort to become a force to be reckoned with.Wick St Lawrence, North Worle, Old Worle, Milton and Kewstoke LATs will amalgamate in the new year.Each LAT will now have to call an annual general meeting to let its members know about the changes and look at how the new group can be financed.Kewstoke LAT chairman, Steve Edwards, said: "If you add five LATs together you get more people and an active group with support. It will also have a louder voice where the police and North Somerset Council are concerned."You end up with five experienced committees converging to make one large experienced committee."We can also share resources. Only two groups have speed guns for example, and when we join together we can spread Speedwatch over one area."Over the last few months members of all five LATs have reported decreasing numbers at meetings and in July Kewstoke LAT was suspended until further notice.Only three people turned up to the last Milton LAT meeting, including the chairman, Reverend Geoff Eales, and vice-chairman Councillor Roz Willis.
