    The Garden of Friendship is now complete with benches and a bin have been installed. Midsomer Norton Town Council have installed 3 sturdy benches to finish off the Garden and make it a green space for the community to enjoy. With the telephone box as a feature, which the Town Council adopted from BT and arranged for it to be refurbished by professional restorers Remember When, the Garden will be a place to relish The Council have been working with the Royal Institute of British Architects to produce copies of the original plans for the church and Scott’s designs for the K6 kiosk. These will be displayed in the telephone box for all to admire. The south boundary has now been renovated with a border and a new palisade fence screened by a beech hedge following the granting of planning permission. The final piece of the initial project saw a bespoke pair of gates under an arch designating the site as The Garden of Friendship installed. The space has already been used by community groups for events as it offers a perfect spot for children’s games or activities, garden parties or any outside activity close to the town centre.

  • Camera at the Somer Centre

    Camera at the Somer Centre

    Police Camera at The Somer Centre. After a spate of anti-social behaviour problems at the Somer Centre the Town Council have now installed a camera at the centre. Midsomer Norton Town Council, Radstock Parish Council and Westfield Parish Council have together funded the Police camera. Working with PC Mark Graham from the Avon and Somerset Police, the camera will be used in areas where anti-social behaviour is causing misery to residents. A community trigger has been raised by the residents of Somer Court, Gullock Tyning. For the past 5 years the residents have had to put up with cars racing down Gullock Tyning and congregating in the Somer Centre Car Park, excessive noise and vandalism. To overcome the issues with the cars, the Town Council arranged with the Town Marshalls to lock the gate to the Somer Centre on Friday and Saturday evenings therefore taking away access to the car park on the busiest 2 nights of the week. Whereas the residents should be enjoying a more peaceful time they are now facing a new wave of anti-social behaviour in the form of younger teenagers vandalising property and banging on the doors of older residents. This is extremely upsetting for the residents and the Town Council will be doing all they can to put a stop to this behaviour. With the new camera in place we are hoping to be able to identify the culprits and the Police can take action against them or their parents. If anyone see’s or is the victim of any anti-social behaviour please call the Police on 101 and log the incident.
