January Column: Councillor Gill Hellier

All the hustle and bustle of Christmas is now over and we look forward to a peaceful new year. Councillor Gill Hellier

The Christmas tree festival in St John’s Church symbolised a wonderful display of community togetherness and we thank the organisers for having the energy and foresight to organise it. We hope it becomes as much a part of Christmas in Keynsham as is the Victorian Evening.

It is good news that B&NES Council has listened to the concerns of the traders in regard to parking during the difficult period of the regeneration of the town centre. An extra 14 30-minute bays, the relocation to the Rock Road end of Ashton Way car park and the traffic regulation order to extend the two-hour parking to four hours is a step in the right direction.  Two-hour free parking would be an even bigger one!

I am sure the wonderful Keynsham community spirit will see us through any difficulties that the town centre regeneration will cause over the next two years.

It is the first step to a very bright and sustainable future for our town.
