Annual Parish Meeting
21st June saw local residents gather for the Kilmersdon Annual Parish Meeting. Chaired by Cllr Roy Morse the meeting heard about plans for new ultra fast broadband in the village. Encouraged by local interest, broadband provider Truespeed have almost enough support to bring the 200mbs full fibre network to Kilmersdon. Free broadband for life for the school and the village hall are part of the local offer.
The talk was followed by a question and answer forum, where a member of the public raised the issue of parking provision in the village. Functions at the village hall tend to result in sometimes dangerous on- street parking and options for improving this situation were discussed.
