In December 2009 we opened the South Petherton Community Information Centre and Police Post.
Some years ago we arranged for a small room at the back of the David Hall (our spectacular performing arts venue) to be used as a Police Post. Volunteers and Somerset and Avon Police provided a valuable service to the local community dealing with issues, complaints and crime-reduction.
We built on that success with the Local Action Group which you can read about elsewhere in the blog.
Now the village has combined the 2, added a fully staffed information centre, and created a vital additional resource for South Petherton. Anyone who wants to know anything about pretty much anything, needs to read planning applications, meet their local Councillors, have private conversations with the regularly attending police and PCSOs and get involved with the multitude of activities in the village can drop in 6 days a week.
