The Mayor of Minehead Cllr Les Smith and his wife Patricia were invited guests to the Somerset Schools Folk Dance Festival held on the lawns of Wells Cathedral. More than 1000 youngsters from 52 schools took part in the Festival. Sadly there were no entries from West Somerset because of the costs involved in the preparation and travelling to the event. It was a lovely event (very dependent on the weather) but it would be great if some help could be made to help West Somerset participation again.
On the 16th May 2016 at the Statutory Annual Meeting of the Full Council Councillor Jean Parbrook was re-elected as the Mayor of Minehead, Councillor Andrew Kingston-James was elected as Deputy Mayor of Minehead.
