Parish Council Elections update

At the close of nominations on 4th April twelve nominations had been received by the Returning Officer.  Fortunately, these were evenly distributed across the three wards in the Parish with four candidates standing in each ward.  This means that there is no need for electors to vote for Parish Councillors on 2nd May as all candidates will be declared elected.  There will be voting for the Borough Council on 2nd May to elect three councillors for the Weaver Cuddington Ward.

Those nominated for the Parish Council are:

Church Ward

Gillian Edwards, John Freeman, Roger Moss and Gary Williams

Gorstage Ward

Michelle Budden, Mick Gerrard, Iain Lasseter and John Taylor

Owley Wood Ward

Eileen Bland, Julian Bland, Adrian Morgan and Peter Wilkinson

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.  Click the thumbnails below to see larger images.

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 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.
