Urgent Child Safety Solution

Well done to Writhlington Village Hall for finding a solution to the increasingly worrying parking issue around St Mary’s Primary School which was causing a lot of risk to the children as they were dropped off / collected.

The village hall wanted to open it’s car park to the parents but it needed a proper durable surface put down first – so working with Radstock & Westfield Big Local, Radstock Town Council and The Ralph and Irma Sperring Charity, they raised the funds to this happen.

Writhlington Village Hall gained community participation with over one hundred names on a petition, they received letters of support from the Town Council, St Marys’ Primary School and many of the groups that use the hall, they raised over 10% though donation buckets and they received sponsorship from local businesses to match fund their application.
