Weston’s MP Welcomes Extra Funding for Vital Services During COVID Crisis

John Penrose MP has welcomed £1.17million extra Government cash for local services during the pandemic, bringing the total to almost £23million.

John said: “The Council’s costs have risen due to Coronavirus, and their income on everything from local taxes to parking charges has dropped at the same time, so this latest cash is essential for North Somerset to get through what we know it’s going to be a difficult winter. It isn’t ringfenced, so they can spend it wherever the local need is greatest.”
