DISPOSAL OF DOG WASTE

Please could I remind dog owners of the need to dispose of waste in the correct way. There are a number of dog waste bins around the village but if you find that the bin is full, please do not leave the bags on the ground by the bin. As long as the waste is secured in a bag, it can be disposed of in any public litter bin or can be taken home and disposed of in your own wheelie bin.

Late Night Bus Service

We are pleased to announce that at last residents of Paulton are going to have a late-night bus service from Bristol.

Starting from April 8th 2024, First Bus will be running a 376A service to leave Bristol Bus station Monday to Saturday at 22:20hrs, 23:20hrs and 23:55hrs. These buses will come through Paulton and Midsomer Norton before resuming their journey to Wells. Along with the late-night services from Bath, we can now have access to Bristol for evening entertainment and a £2.00 journey home.

Please support this service and make it worthwhile.

Allowance of Dogs within the Cemetery

A polite reminder that dogs are permitted in the cemetery grounds but must be kept on a lead at all times. Please do not allow your dog to urinate against memorials. If your dog fouls in the cemetery, please remove and place in an appropriate bin.

 


Applications open for new Winter Energy Support Fund

Residents in Bath and North East Somerset who are on low incomes can apply for a one-off payment of £150 to help with energy costs this winter.

Bath & North East Somerset Council has launched a new Winter Energy Support Fund using its allocation of government funding from the Household Support Fund.

To qualify, residents must be aged over 18 with a permanent address in B&NES and savings of no more than £6,000. They will also need to be in receipt of a qualifying benefit or be on a low combined income of less than £500 per week.

Anyone in the household who receives Disability Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payments, or Attendance Allowance will qualify for an extra £100 in addition to the £150 standard payment.

The council may also consider applications from residents who are in financial crisis due to circumstances beyond their control.

Applications can be made here and will be assessed in order of receipt. People can also request a paper copy or complete it over the phone by calling the Benefits Team on 01225 477277 (option 1). The number of awards that can be made are limited.

Councillor Mark Elliott, cabinet member for Resources, said: “We know that many households continue to struggle to pay energy bills and want to make sure that families are supported through these harsh winter months. I don’t want to see any residents go cold this winter. If you think you qualify for this vital help, please apply to us as soon as possible.”

Information and advice to support with food, energy and money is available on the council website
