War Memorial
The repairs to restore the War Memorial, including the additional work to improve the access, have been completed. Mr Alan Jones from Galliford -Try (the firm managing the major works at Tollbar End roundabout) came to Wolston on 8th September and presented the Parish Council with a cheque to cover the cost of undertaking work to improve the access. Mr Jones was asked to convey to Galliford-Try the thanks of the Parish Council, the village and the families of those who have loved ones remembered on the Memorial.

Now that this work is complete the grass either side of the new access will be leveled, and the garden around the Memorial will be further transformed by Caroline and Marion, our volunteer gardeners, who will take this opportunity to completely replant the memorial garden. To assist them the Parish Council have provided a grant to enable the purchase of additional plants.

Wolston Post Office - Major Changes
It is understood that the Changes proposed for the Post Office counter inside the Co-op are now delayed until the New Year.
The Post Office (PO) are proposing major changes to the way that PO services are provided at Wolston. It is proposed that the
existing dedicated PO counter be closed and that all services be transferred to a till on the retail counter. The PO have invited comments on these proposals but the comment period allowed is very short so the Parish Council have requested that this be extended. The full letter from the PO proposing the changes is here.
