It has been lovely to meet so many people throughout October at the many flu clinics that have been held in our local villages and I have been asked many different questions about a whole host of subjects.  However, a lot of questions have been about transport issues and has highlighted the need for more volunteer community drivers to help run people to medical appointments etc.  If you are interested in volunteering as a driver please do get in contact either with myself, AT West (01643 709701) or Mike Ellicott (01643 831500), volunteer co-ordinator for the Exmoor Medical Centre.  There is a lack of drivers on the moor for this much needed service.  Fuel costs are paid for from door to door, so if you think this is something you would like to get involved with then you would be helping many people in your local community.
Also, just a reminder that anyone who has been affected by flooding could be able to get a Flood Resilience Pack from Somerset Emergency Volunteers.  These packs contain silicon gel bags that swell to sandbag size upon contact with water.  They are free to anyone who can show their home is at risk of flooding.  Please get in contact with me if one of these packs would be of help to you.
Finally, the Exmoor Carers Group is next to due meet on Monday 30th November between 12-2pm at the Moorland Hall, Wheddon Cross.  This event is free, just bring a plate of food to share and come along! 
Please contact me by telephone or e-mail or a home visit can be arranged.  All advice is free and completely confidential.

Adopt a Path Scheme

The Parish Clerk has received this e mail If you are interested in finding out more please contact the clerk at necchighiri@btinternet.com  for further details.

Dear PPLO – I am emailing to inform you of a new Adopt-a-path scheme that we are intending to launch in the near future.  The attached leaflet highlights the role and provides background information.  It will enable individuals to adopt a local definitive public right of way that they use regularly and help to keep the vegetation clipped back.

When a volunteer sends/emails their request to adopt-a-path we will have the ultimate approval in case there are paths that have long standing issues (legal or otherwise), conflicting landowners or other problems.

To save you accumulating more responsibility and time commitments we will encourage some volunteers to become local co-ordinators to report in problems.  If you would be happy to do this then I can inform the volunteer on approval, but please do not feel under any pressure to take on this role.

You may already operate a similar scheme in your parish or town.  If you do I would encourage you to register the individuals with us they can benefit from being covered by our insurance and receive a pair of secateurs and gloves (if required) as well as avoiding any potential duplication of paths being adopted.

The scheme will be advertised quite widely across the county through newspaper articles, the SCC website as well as through health centres and vets.  A major health link can be attributed to the scheme by encouraging people to get out and walk, ride or cycle whatever distance they choose.  We feel that the scheme will build on the excellent work that you already do and help to spread the load further.

Somerset Choices is here

Somerset Choices is a new website that aims to help people help themselves stay independent, healthy and well. It will put people in control of their care and wellbeing and give them more choice when it comes to who provides their care and support.
 Visit the site here: www.somersetchoices.org.uk
 The new website guides people through self-help forms, provides easy access to information and a directory of local services, products, groups and events in their local area. Such as care homes, help at home, mobility equipment, personal assistants, lunch clubs, exercise groups and breaks for carers.
The site is now live in a test version – which means people can access the site but lots of work is still going on behind the scenes to improve the content and respond to feedback. More local care and support providers are also being encouraged to upload their details so that the site contains a really comprehensive directory of local services. If you have any initial feedback on the website please email: help@somersetchoices.org.uk
There will be promotional activity to raise awareness of Somerset Choices including newspaper and radio advertising and events across the county.
The event dates and locations are:

Saturday 11th July
Wiveliscombe Town Centre
Saturday 18th July
Chard Town Centre
Saturday 25th July
Clarks Village in Street
Saturday 1st August
Taunton Town Centre
Saturday 8th August
Bridgwater Town Centre

Minehead Town Centre
Friday 11th September
Shepton Mallet Town Centre
Wednesday 16 September
Wells Town Centre
Friday 25 September
Yeovil Town Centre
Saturday 26 September
Junction 24 in Bridgwater
Anyone who attends the event can talk to a member of the team about Somerset Choices and what it will offer and try the site out.

The Somerset Choices website has been developed by Somerset County Council, in partnership with the local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and District Councils.

Parish Members of Exmoor National Park Authority

Dear Exmoor Parishes
I understand that the Somerset Association of Local Councils will be notifying you all of the result of
the election of parish members of Exmoor National Park Authority. In case you haven’t yet received
this, I can advise that the following Parish Councillors were duly elected:
Mr Mike Ellicott (Exford Parish Council)
Sir Richard Peek (North Molton Parish Council)
Mrs Penelope Webber (Selworthy and Minehead Without Parish Council)
Mr Vivian White (Cutcombe Parish Council)
Mr Alan Wright (Porlock Parish Council)
As you will know, the Government values the important contribution of Parish Members of National
Park Authorities, who help to ensure that local people have full involvement in the running of the
National Park. All Authority Members, including Parish Members, have a primary responsibility to
seek to ensure that the Authority furthers its statutory purposes and Parish Members are appointed
to represent the wider National Park view, and not just their own parish or group of parishes.
Thank you to all parishes who participated in the election process.
Kind regards
Carol Carder

The new Exmoor Carers Group had its first meeting last month and was well attended. The word “carer” is one that people do not often associate with themselves but which is defined as “someone who spends a significant proportion of their life providing unpaid support to family or friends.”  This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Monday 17th August, 12-2pm at the Moorland Hall, Wheddon Cross and will again be a bring-and-share lunch.  We will be joined by Compass Carers and Carers Voice, two organisations who are there to support carers and offer advice.  So if you are an unpaid carer looking after a loved one please do come and join us, those cared-for are also very welcome too!

I have been asked a number of times recently about eligibility for Attendance Allowance and Carers Allowance.  If you think you might be eligible but need some advice please do get in contact with me.Please contact me by telephone or e-mail or a home visit can be arranged.  All advice is free and completely confidential.

Somerset Choices is on its way

Somerset Choices, which is set to launch later this month, will transform the way people access care and support services and find out about local groups.
The new website will provide a wealth of useful information and advice and will allow people, or others on their behalf, to search for services, products, groups and events in their local area. Such as care homes, help at home, mobility equipment, personal assistants, lunch clubs, exercise groups and breaks for carers.
Somerset Choices will give people more choice and in the future will be the primary way for care and health professionals to find out what is available in Somerset.
The site has been developed by Somerset County Council in partnership with the Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and District Councils.

Do you know a local care provider or local group?

We want as many care providers and local groups as possible to sign up to the website.
It is easy to upload information and it is absolutely free too. If you know a local care and support providers or local group in your parish, please pass on this information and encourage them to add their details to Somerset Choices.
Information on how to register can be found here: http://www.somerset.gov.uk/adult-social-care/somerset-choices/ as well as dates of local information events.
It is free to upload information and we can provide support to do this if required.
We are very happy to speak to you or meet with you to answer any questions you have about Somerset Choices.
