Neighbourhood Plan


St Cuthbert (Out) Parish Council has agreed to create a Neighbourhood Plan for the parish. A Neighbourhood Plan allows the local communities to have a significant say in how their area will develop over the next 15 years.

Whilst the new Mendip Local Plan provides a strategic overview for developments, it is the role of a Neighbourhood Plan to provide the fine detail. The parish council will therefore need your help to identify which areas should be developed and which should be left alone.


A Neighbourhood Plan can, in addition, be used to identify priorities for spending the money provided by house builders, known as the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). For example, the CIL funds can be used for new children's play areas, improved footpaths and cycle routes, faster broadband speeds or to provide a better mobile signal.

Seasonal Compliments from the Easton Village Hall Committee


Easton Ladies Guild


At our meeting on 5 November we welcomed one of our villagers, Chris Burtt to tell us about her memories of Saltaire.

Built in the 19th century by Victorian philanthropist, Sir Titus Salt, Saltaire was a village built around a mill not far from Bradford in Yorkshire. The nearby railway and canal provided vital links for the business to flourish.


He built the mill on the banks of the River Aire and developed the village with houses  and shops for the mill workers around it. There were no gardens but the workers were encouraged to grow their own vegetables on the village allotments.


Titus was teetotal so there was no pub built in the village. He had a large family with 13 children whose names were also used for the street names.

At the time, Queen Victoria was in mourning and he seized the opportunity to mill alpaca fleece rather than sheep wool as this made very good, fine black material. This was an extremely profitable move for him.


In 2001, Saltaire was designated a World Heritage Site.

Chris was brought up near here and enjoyed many a visit there as a child and the place obviously holds a very special place in her heart as evidenced by her enthusiastic presentation and I think several of us have been persuaded to visit at some time in the future.


0ur December meeting will be replaced by our Christmas lunch outing.

On January 7th 2015, Janet Parrot will talk about “The History and Fashion of Spectacles Throughout the Ages”.


                            CAROLS ON THE GREEN
                TUESDAY 16th DEC
at 6.30pm

                         




There will be Hot Roast Chestnuts, Mulled Wine and Mince Pies for you to enjoy and to help you keep warm, soft drinks will also be available. Everyone is welcome to join us, whether or not you live in the village. Just wrap up warm and come along.


This event is free to attend, all we ask is, that if you are able, please make a donation in aid of the charities supported by St. Paul’s Church in 2014/15. The total amount raised will be shared equally between them.

ST. PAUL’S CHURCH will be hosting its annual CAROLS ON THE GREEN when we gather around the Christmas tree on the Village Green to sing a selection of well known and loved Christmas carols, with music provided by Wells City Band. This is a family occasion when Children, Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and friends come together to enjoy a truly festive event to get your Christmas off to a great start.
