The Mayor Cllr Leslie Smith was invited to visit the Atwest/Slinky organisation. A discussion with Mr Brian Worrall from Atwest/Slinky gave them a chance to highlight the difficulties that they are having to deal with. The service they offer to their clients offers huge benefits in overcoming mobility problems due to lack of public transport etc. Their biggest concern related to the possible reduction in the revenue that they receive from Somerset County Council and they would appreciate support from Minehead Town Council in trying to maintain the financial support currently enjoyed from Somerset County Council.
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.
