Home Energy UpgradeLots of people in our area are worried about their heating bills or are struggling to heat cold homes. As energy prices rise, you want to use less – but how can you do that and still stay warm? A new, charity-led insulation scheme might be able to help »Home Energy Upgrade
SandbagsThe Parish Council has a quantity of sandbags for defence against flooding and they are stored within the grounds of Kilve Court.

If sandbags are required by parishioners they should contact the Kilve SOS team;

…who will then organise their collection and delivery.

Parish Pet Microchip ScannerThere have been a number of occasions when dogs have been found without their owners and in several cases there was no collar or contact number. The dogs had to be taken into Bridgwater to be scanned, to obtain the owners details, which can mean a round trip of more than an hour. In order to reunite dogs and cats with their owners more quickly, the Parish Council have purchased a Pet Microchip scanner. This will be in the care of Cllr Mark Walton. Should you find a lost pet we can then hopefully reunite the pet with their owner.
