There had been some delay in getting the lights working due to Western Power being unwilling to do works until this year despite pressure from Hazel. They are now operational. The crossing was initially granted after a successful bid for a Small Improvement Scheme by Hazel resulting in the County Council installing the crossing on Blackbrook Way. With increasing members of the public wanting to use the swimming pool, Hazel felt it was essential that a crossing be installed to allow pedestrians and cyclists safe passage to the site. Hazel and Fran were also both pleased with the installation of the vehicle access barrier at the entrance to the pavilion towards the end of the summer last year. Residents had been complaining for some years about encampments but to no avail. With the Liberal Democrats having taken control of the Somerset West and Taunton Council in 2019, action has finally taken to help prevent this.

When the lockdown ends, Fran and Hazel would like Please remember to encourage local that benche, due residents to sign up to the to Covid local Speedwatch to help restrictions, can curb troublesome only be used if motorists in the area.
