The Sale of Envy Night Club

The sale of Envy Night Club

Parish councillors got a flavour of public opinion at a meeting on 14th March about the imminent sale of the Envy Nightclub.

The parish council hopes that the building could be bought for community use, but does not have the resources to purchase and refurbish Envy itself.

Those attending the meeting supported strongly the need for more things suitable for young people, and for the community as a whole to have access to a village centre multi-use facility.

Mr Dylan Thomas, pastor of The Harvest Church, spoke saying that it might be possible for their church to buy it to use as a base for their out reach work; he also put forward the possibility of some type of joint project. Unfortunately the timing of the auction at the end of April leaves little time to explore more options.

The council would not want to commit its finances to this project at the detriment of the wide range of other organisations who benefit from parish council grants.

Street War Memorial

Street War Memorial

Street Parish Council has been concerned about the condition of the WW1 war memorial, which is situated in Merriman Park, for a long time. Despite a refurbishment in 2009, the memorial continues to deteriorate.

A committee of Councillors and representatives of local service organisations have been working hard to find a fitting replacement to be sited in a more central position.

The first hurdle was finding a suitable site in the middle of the village and this has now been found. The new memorial, and a plaque bearing the names from both world wars, will be sited in the community garden adjacent to the United Reformed Church.

John Candler ( www.somersetguild.co.uk/?content_id=22&member_id=450 ) of Somerset Guild of Craftsmen, has been commissioned to design and carve a new 2-metre-high memorial from Portland stone, which will be adorned with a scattering of glass poppies in varying shades of red.  A small stone sample of the materials he will use can be seen in the Street Parish Rooms. Once planning permission is sought from Mendip District Council the plans and drawings will also be available to see.

The names of the fallen from both world wars have been fully researched by Mr. I. Higton and Mrs. C. Atkins, and these names will be carved into a Portland stone plaque which will be positioned at the back of the memorial garden.

Street Parish Council wish to publish the list below of those names so that residents can ensure they are correct before they are carved. It is hoped the memorial will be in place by November 2017.

Street Parish Council are launching a public subscription to give both local people and organisations the chance to contribute towards the new memorial; this is the way that the old memorial was financed. If you wish to contribute to this subscription to provide a new, accurate and fitting war memorial for the people of Street, please contact Street Parish Council on 01458 440588 or email street-parish@street-pc.gov.uk

The Calvary of the existing memorial will be re-sited in Merriman Park once the new memorial is in place.

In memory of the people of Street who gave their lives for their country.

Street Country Market is Moving

from Thursday 19th January 2o17 will take place in the United Reform Church 120 High Street.

Time 9:00 to 12:00 every Thursday

Street’s Country Market which has been providing good wholesome, local sustainable produce and more, for 40 years every Thursday morning.

Street Country Market had its home in the Crispin Hall but, but its closure due to refurbishment, means the market will be moving to the United Reformed Church  every Thursday  from 9.00-1200 starting on 19th January 2017.

Why not come along and buy a delicious cake, some fresh vegetables or preserves? You will also find beautiful greetings cards, wood products, children’s clothes, plants and cut flowers!

In the near future, it is hoped to also offer a morning cuppa with cake!

The Street Country Market is a co-operative social enterprise and members, called ‘producers’, pay 5p (an old shilling) to join, and a small percentage of each sale is deducted to cover the operating costs. They aim to encourage the public to discover the diversity and deliciousness of local Somerset homemade baked goods, preserves, garden-grown fruit and vegetables. They also showcase the skills and talents of local craftsmen and artisans, who even offer to make items to your individual choice.

Producers pride themselves on the quality of their produce and the friendliness.

If you are a keen cook, gardener or crafter you may like to consider joining as a member. For more details contact Street 442957 or pop in  on a Thursday morning.

Let’s celebrate this 40th anniversary year for the Street Country Market and enjoy genuine local produce at very reasonable prices!
