Wolston Parish Council

Introduction by Chair

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.

Emergency Response

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. 

For more information about dogs in public places look here.

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
