How to raise an item for discussion by the Parish Council

  • To raise points of general interest or to ask a question either contact the Clerk or attend the open Public Forum session held before every Parish Council meeting.
  • To request that a topic be discussed as an Agenda item at the next Parish Council meeting please ensure that you advise the Clerk at least seven days prior to the meeting, in order that it may be included in the Agenda. Any item submitted must fall within the scope of the PC responsibilities and provide paper or electronic copies of all relevant background information to the topic.
  • To request that a topic be discussed as an Agenda item at the next Parish Council meeting, the outcome of which may include the need for a decision on expenditure by the Parish Council, you must advise the Clerk at least seven days prior to the meeting and provide paper or electronic copies of all relevant background information to the topic, including copies of all quotes and details of the selection criteria used, if any, to make a recommendation for expenditure. These documents will be circulated with the Agenda and will be in the public domain. Note that the Parish Council is lawfully unable to make any decision on proposals for expenditure which are not received in good time or are not adequately supported. If you are unsure about what is needed please contact the Clerk.

Wolston Parish Council

Introduction by Chairman

 The Parish Council channels its efforts into bringing about positive changes.

Councillors get involved in the community and village organisations supporting each other in the common cause of serving the public. The Parish Council encourages members of the public to contact the Parish Clerk, or individual Councillors, or to come along to our monthly meetings and take advantage of the “Public Forum” session which precedes our formal session. It is very important that we all have the opportunity to have our say in the things that matter to us.

I would like to put on record my thanks to all Wolston Parish Councillors and our Proper Officer and Responsible Finance Officer, Mrs Meede for their tireless efforts on behalf of the Parish and support for me.

As a council we are so lucky to have the support of the village and to have so many people who are willing to roll up their sleeves and give of their time.

I’d like to thank all the villagers who show how much living in Wolston means to them. It is nice to have an opportunity to put on record my thanks to my fellow villagers for the tremendous work they do for the benefit of our parish making it such a vibrant place with a great sense of community.

Tim Harvey -Smith.
Chairman

Reporting Dog Mess
If you see dog mess in any areas of the village, it would help the Parish Council if you could report this.
Please either telephone Mrs Maria Meede, the Parish Clerk, on 024 7654 5515, or report the mess via the form on the village website here. Your reporting will help us to find out which areas are the worst affected, and then we can ask the Dog Warden or Community Safety Wardens to take action.
Your assistance will be much appreciated, as dog mess can be a big problem for parents who are out in the village with their young children, or to parents taking their youngsters to school and nursery, or for older residents and those using mobility scooters.

Kite flying in Dyers Lane
The Parish Council recently resolved to ban the use of 'power kites' on the Recreation Ground in Dyers Lane. This is based on advice produced by the British Power Kite Sports Association from which it is clear that the site is unsuitable for this purpose. The description of a Power Kite is here
