ABCD are hopeful of getting two of its projects off the ground this year. Members have also come up with an ambitious list of projects and ideas to help residents and businesses to work together to keep Crewkerne a vibrant and attractive place to live in and to visit. Ideas from the Community Plan, compiled after residents were asked for their views on Crewkerne and what improvements they would like to see, include a central bus stop with a shelter, so that passengers don’t have to wait in the rain and an accessible path around Henhayes to enable the elderly and young children to enjoy the Henhayes recreation field.
A lot of the ground work for these projects has been completed and thanks to volunteers, ABCD are “hopeful that once the safety audits and consultations have finished, we will get them off the ground.” Chair of ABCD Trustees Gail Coleshill said: “Crewkerne is a wonderful place to live and work for most people but the Community Plan survey highlighted that quality of life is an issue. For instance, people who do not have their own transport, people with young children and people with a disability. The volunteers of ABCD want to make Crewkerne a better place for everybody.”
A Better Crewkerne & District (ABCD) is a charity run by volunteers. The next meeting of ABCD is on Thursday March 28th at 7 pm in the town hall. All are welcome to attend. For more information, please contact Di Butler via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
