Singing for the Brain

As part of its commitment to becoming a Dementia Friendly Community, Radstock Town Council is continuing to support the Singing for the Brain group for people living with dementia and their carers. Singing for the Brain is a programme developed by the Alzheimer's Society for people with memory problems. It promotes communication through singing which can help with speech, concentration, focus and motivation. The group offers valuable social opportunities and the emphasis is on relaxation, participation and fun and all new members are very warmly welcomed. 
 
The Council is proud to support such a valuable activity and are keen to press ahead with other initiatives.

Neighbourhood Plan

RADSTOCK NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN

Do you want to have a say over where new homes, shops and offices are built? Do you want to have an input into the facilities and services on offer in Radstock?
Maybe you want to improve your high street? Or protect your favourite local spaces? Or ensure there is enough infrastructure to support new homes and residents?
Neighbourhood Planning could be right up your street.

What is a neighbourhood plan?

A neighbourhood plan is an important document with real legal force, it is:
• A document that sets out planning policies for the neighbourhood area, which are then used to decide whether to approve planning applications
• Written by the local community, the people who know and love the area, rather than the Local Planning Authority
• A powerful tool to ensure the community gets the right types of development, in the right place.

Local people can create a plan that allows them to develop planning policies that reflect the priorities of their area and have real legal weight. The whole community then decides at a referendum vote whether the local authority should bring the plan into force.
The Town Council has expressed its interest in completing a Neighbourhood Plan for Radstock and is seeking the views of the community and interested residents to join a Steering Group.

How can you get involved?

The Town Council has arranged to include Neighbourhood Planning as part of the Annual Town Meeting - to provide information on Neighbourhood Planning, begin to identify the key issues in the town and recruit members to the Neighbourhood Planning Steering Group. It has also prepared an initial questionnaire to seek your views on Radstock, which can be downloaded below or contact the office for further information.

Please come along to the Trinity Methodist Church, Radstock to find out more:

Monday 21st May 2018 – from 7.15 pm
Refreshments will be available

Are you a group of people that have difficulty in getting around without the assistance of a vehicle and driver, i.e. elderly, disabled or need of help on and off a bus?
Then the Local Community Mini Bus, could be what you are looking for!
Founded in April 1967, the bus was commissioned to enable the elderly, disabled, and small groups of the public, who found difficulty in getting to and from their houses, to go to their Lunch Clubs, Church Services, outings etc. without worry! This, in turn, helped them to feel part of society, and not to miss out on events around the area.
 
If you would like to know more, or would like to use the Mini Bus, or perhaps become a volunteer driver!
Please contact our
Co-ordinator Mrs Debbie Gunfield on 01761 416910 for information, or our Transport Manager Mr Nick Rogers on 01761 413872.

Bath and North East Somerset gets Sugar Smart! 
 
Sugar Smart Key Message 
Bath & North East Somerset Council wants to hear local people’s views on its new Sugar Smart campaign. 
 
The Council has teamed up with local organisations, Sustainable Food Cities and the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation to help get the Sugar Smart message across. 
 
The campaign aims to address obesity, poor oral health and diabetes by helping people to recognise how much sugar is in their food and drink as well as supporting organisations to provide healthier choices.
 
The recommended daily intake of added sugar is a maximum of 7.5  teaspoons for adults and 3 - 6 teaspoons for children.  However, on average, adults and children are eating up to three times this amount.
