Hi All,

Ruishton and Thornfalcon Parish Council have arranged for Highway England to give a presentation of their proposal to upgrade and change the route of the A358 from Ilminster's Southfield roundabout to Taunton, this includes the creation of a new junction (25a) on the M5. The scheme could have a major effect on the future of this parish and of Taunton.

This is a parish council meeting and all parishioners are welcome, you will have the chance to ask questions of Highway England's officers.

Date & Time; Wednesday 21st June
Location: Ruishton Village Hall
Hope to see you there
Regards Mike

Thank you to everyone who completed the Household Survey. Everyone's contributions will now be collated and a report will be compiled by CCS which we will receive in a few months. If you missed out this time, don't worry, this won't be your only opportunity to have your say. We are currently running workshops with the young people of our Parish and will be working on Business and Housing Needs Surveys throughout this year. In addition, we will be at Village Day again, along with other summer fetes.
