Cllr Solomon said that he was very proud to represent the huge team of people who had worked to earn this fantastic achievement. In particular Mike thanked Dan Bingham and the Wembdon Cricket Club for their work on the playing pitches, Andrew Sutton for keeping the playing fields and surrounding areas in excellent order, the Wembdon Give a Day team of village volunteers, those who fund-raised to complete the entrance and car park with re-surfacing, planting an avenue of specimen cherry trees with hedging and new grassed areas, and our tireless litter picker, Beryl Morton.

The Parish Council has also been highly commended for its policy of Access for All, which ensures that it is providing recreational facilities that benefit everybody in their community, regardless of their capability, installing the latest specification Changing Places toilet and changing room at the Village Hall, fully accessible play equipment in the playing fields and new tarmac surfaced footpaths, with solar lighting, to provide better and safer access to wheelchair users, mobility scooters and those less steady on their feet.

“We are very proud of winning the cup”, said Cllr Solomon, “because it is a real recognition of the work carried out by so many in our community for the benefit of us all.”
