I expect I am not alone amongst Wincanton residents in hoping that our Town Councillors will be able to work harmoniously to address all the challenges facing the town post Covid. We have so much to thank previous councillors for - the refurbished Rec, Playground and Skatepark - that, with the regeneration of the town centre in the offing, they have a great deal to concentrate on. Good luck, everyone!
