ANYONE wanting to do their bit for the community is urged to attend a local action team's AGM next month.

Cheddar Local Action Team (LAT) will hold the meeting on February 4 in Hannah More Cottage in Lower North Street at 7.30pm.

Representatives from the district council, parish council and the police all work with the LAT to make Cheddar a safer and better place to live.

The main project the LAT is working on is to build a skate park for youngsters in Sharpham Road playing fields and the team has submitted plans to the parish council prior to applying for planning permission.

LAT chairman Jill Male said: "The Methodist Church and the Cheddar Vale Lions Club have both been very supportive of the drop-in sessions.
