Problem with our email
We are currently experiencing an issue with the Parish Council’s email only delivering some of the emails into our inbox. We are in contact with our email provider to get the problem resolved as soon as possible but this seems to be taking longer than we had been told by the provider. In the mean time, especially if your enquiry is urgent, please contact us by telephone (01606 854451) by letter or by calling into the Parish Office at the Community Centre, Russet Road, Weaverham, CW8 3HY.
We apologise for any inconvenience and we trust that the issue will be resolved very soon.
New Exercise Equipment
The Parish Council has installed some new exercise equipment on the Russet Road Playing Field and has replaced the old basket ball/goal posts with a new one including a cricket wicket. The equipment is suitable for older children, youths and adults so, if you’re feeling in need of some exercise, do drop by and give the new equipment a try.

Village Litter Pick
There was a good turnout of councillors, Weaverham Trust members and residents young and not-so-young for the Litter Pick on Saturday, 9th February. The weather stayed dry and 33 bags of litter were collected, which all helps to improve our village environment. A very sincere thank you is extended to all who helped.
The Weaverham Trust have organised the next Litter Pick for Saturday, 6th April 2019. If you would like to join in with the Litter Pick, please meet at the Community Centre, Russet Road at 10:30am to sign up for an area. All equipment will be provided (Hi-vis, sacks, gloves and litter pickers) on the day. Further details from Peter Manning at email@example.com. More volunteers means that more of the village can be covered – Many hands make light work!
The Trust is also arranging a further Litter Pick on Saturday, 15th June 2019.
