Cllr Mike Lewis, Area East Chairman said:

β€œThe Area East Community Forum is an excellent way for all community activists to get involved in projects and influence local services in the area. The forum gives local people from Wincanton, Castle Cary, Milborne Port, Ilchester, Bruton and all the other surrounding areas in Area East the chance to network with local services and organisations.

I believe this should be an exciting event to attend and will help local community activists to get on their way.”
