The effects of the coronavirus look likely to result in greater disruption to our everyday life. The Residents Forum want you to know that if you are being affected by the restrictions brought about by the Coronavirus epidemic, you are not alone. Rest assured that there are many people in the village willing to help out (with shopping for example) if you find yourself affected by these issues. Also, it might be that being stuck inside for days you might want to just have a chat with someone. The following people have said they are happy to help in whatever way they can, so if you find yourself in need of help in some way do give one of us a ring.

New application for 148 more houses on Wookey Hole Rd
A planning application for outline planning permission for 148 new homes adjacent to Underwood Business Park, opposite the new Bovis Development on Wookey Hole Rd has recently been submitted to Mendip District Council. The application number is 2019/2883 and this is a link to it
Because of this application, our Parish Council have changed the venue of their next Planning Committee meeting at 7pm on Wednesday 18th December to be at Wookey Hole Community Hall instead of Coxley. The Parish Council will decide at this meeting if they will be recommending to Mendip District Council approval or refusal for the application. It would be good if as many residents as possible could attend. It would be helpful if anyone wishing to speak at the meeting (max 3 mins) could write to the chairman, Marcel Hayden
Representations to Mendip District Council should be made by 26th December at the latest.
Messiah brings Christmas joy to Wells
Enjoy an uplifting festive experience like no other, when Messiah comes to Wells Cathedral on Saturday 7th December.
In their annual performance of Handel's great work, Wells Cathedral Oratorio Society will be accompanied by some of Europe's finest period instrument musicians in the Music for Awhile Orchestra, led by Jean Paterson. The soloists are Elizabeth Atherton (soprano), Tim Morgan (countertenor), Peter Auty (tenor), and Ben McAteer (bass). The Conductor is Jeremy Cole.
The Oratorio choir says: ''This concert is truly a wonderful musical experience and we know that audiences really feel the joy of the Christmas season when they hear it - and indeed become part of it during the Halleluja chorus.''
This popular event is expected to sell out so the advice is to book early.
