Health Walk Volunteers needed

Why not sign up to become a qualified Health Walk Leader? The Healthy Lifestyles Team at South Somerset District Council run free Health Walk Leader training courses.

This training is ideal if you would like to lead a health walk in your local area on a voluntary basis. It is a day of practical advice and includes a demonstration of a health walk and information on keeping people motivated.

We need volunteers to help out with the health walks in Ilminster. For more information, visit our website: http://socsi.in/ACey4

Please consider this. You don't need any previous experience, just an enthusiasm for walking (and talking) and exploring the wonderful countryside that surrounds Ilminster. It is only for a couple of hours a week and the more volunteers we have, the more walks and walkers we can accommodate. One lady asked me tonight if we would consider an evening walk for those that work. If we had enough interest and another volunteer or two it would be relatively easy to set up one for either evenings or weekends. Thank you.

Ilminster Business Survey
CLOSING 15 NOVEMBER 2018

The Ilminster Forum is working with South Somerset District Council to determine what can be done to help improve the viability of businesses in and around Ilminster. This survey, we hope, will identify what might be lacking and where assistance might be required. The Ilminster Forum and the businesses themselves will be able to use the data generated by the survey to apply for grant funding for projects that may have been highlighted in the survey. The only time we ask for personal information is in Questions 29 and 40, such personal information will not appear in any of our reports - ensuring data will be anonymous. This survey is aimed at all types of business and therefore some of the questions may not be relevant to your business. However, the more complete the forms are when they are returned to us, the easier it will be to persuade funders and other relevant organisations to support the actions needed to benefit Ilminster. We have tried to ensure that every business in Ilminster is aware of this survey, however if you know of a business that has not received this information please let us know. This survey is on Smart Survey and can be accessed using the following link: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/EW6Z4/
Paper copies are available by contacting 01460 57564

CLEAN FOR THE QUEEN

Clean for The Queen is a campaign to tidy up Britain in time for Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday, which will be officially celebrated in June 2016.


The campaign organisers are calling on individuals, volunteer groups, local councils, businesses and schools to do their bit. They are aiming to inspire over a million people to pick litter in their local area and take part in the biggest ever clean-up event over the weekend of the 4,5,6 March. The Ilminster Forum has registered to take part, but rather than litter picking, volunteers will be cleaning street signage. Please free to come and join us in cleaning street signage in your area. Let us know where and when you plan to clean by emailing enquiries@ilminsterweb.co.uk. All that is required is a bucket of soapy water (washing-up liquid), rubber gloves and a sponge. Please do not use any chemicals or abrasive materials. If you live on a busy road keep off the road and wear a high visibility vest. It is also important to ensure that children are accompanied by a responsible adult when taking part in the clean-up. In the case of young children it is advised that there are no more than four children to one adult.


For more information about the national Clean for The Queen campaign go to www.cleanforthequeen.co.uk

Thank you

Ilminster Forum would like to thank the residents of Ilminster who took the time to complete the Householders Survey, around 30% of households have returned surveys and the data is now being collated and analysed.


Surveys aimed at the business sector will be distributed over the next few weeks.


The results of all the surveys will be available at a public exhibition later in the year, where Ilminster Forum will again be seeking the views of people in the town. The exhibition will highlight the issues residents and businesses have identified as important, along with a list of potential projects which will help address those issues. Residents and businesses will be asked to comment and help identify the projects to be included in the next community plan.


Once this process has been completed Ilminster Forum will update the Community Plan, a document which identifies what residents love about their town and what they think needs improving. It covers important issues that affect residents such as getting about, leisure, working and local facilities. It sets out the needs, hopes and aspirations for the future of Ilminster, with an action plan of projects for achieving those aims.


Local Community Groups can then use the evidence collected to help secure grant fund and get support from government bodies.
