The parish council has received the below information from MDC, which may be of interest to the parish:
My name is Nataliya. I am writing to introduce myself as I have recently been appointed as a Community Health Coordinator and Policy Officer at Mendip District Council. I have been given your details as a parish clerk in the Mendip area.
Part of my role is to explore practices and activities around health and wellbeing that are taking place in communities within the Mendip area, with a view of enabling wider networking and establishing where support is available, or indeed required.
I’d love to hear what activities and groups are in your parishes, be it walking groups, amdram or school projects. Equally, if you have residents who would like to set up any groups but not sure how to do so, I will be more than happy to look into what advice and support can be accessed.
If you are not the best contact, could you please forward my contact details to those interested in promoting good health and wellbeing within your community.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
