Somerset County Council’s current volunteer drivers are in need of new recruits, to support the NHS and the Council in ensuring patients get the care and treatment that they need.
Its an ideal opportunity for anybody over 18 with a full UK driving licence and four-door car to do something for their community; especially those who enjoy driving and meeting new people. Patients appreciate the opportunity to chat to their drivers, since some live in socially or geographically isolated situations.

The 2023 Boundary Review – Initial Proposals for new Parliamentary constituency boundaries
The Boundary Commission for England has today published its initial proposals for new constituency boundaries. The proposals and maps for the nine English regions have been published on the website today. The eight-week public consultation period has commenced. This will be the first time the public will get a chance to see what their new constituencies might look like, and give the Commission their views on the proposals.
For the 2023 Review, the Commission is promoting use of a specifically-designed consultation website as the primary tool for displaying our proposals, and receiving comments on them. This is available at www.bcereviews.org.uk.
This website is under review at this present time and will be revised and or amended to reflect the current Website Accessibility Requirements A.S.A.P.
