Welcome to our November edition of Get SuSSed.
November has been both busy and exciting as we bed in the successful and popular E Scooter trial in Yeovil and fine tune the operation so it works best for the community. We've also teamed up with the Yeovil Rivers Community Trust to enhance the Dodham Brook at Yeovil Country Park to improve habitat for wildlife. Our popular Great Parish Tree Giveaway is well underway and we've extend the end date to enable more Parishes to apply for free trees, so I encourage you to apply if you have scope for tree planting in your Parish.
We've held our first ever Parish Environment Champion virtual events, which have been a great success and well attended. Our ambition is that these events will grow as more champions get involved and interlink to form a network of like minded people implementing sustainable projects across the district.
We also held our a seminar for local businesses to raise awareness of the circular economy research and initiatives that promote environmental sustainability alongside business growth.
Finally, I would like to wish you all a safe, healthy and very happy December. May all your Christmas eco wishes come true,
