Parish Councillor Update

We have a new Parish Councillor, Bill Lewsey. Please join me in welcoming Bill to his first ever council posting, and we look forward to working with him.  At this point its also an appropriate moment to say thank you to Trevor Harris who left the council due to the demands of a new teaching role. Our loss is educations gain!

 

PARISH COUNCIL ELECTION POSTPONED

The election planned for the 18th April has been postponed due to lack if candidates to fill the one remaining space on the Winsham Parish Council . A future date will be arranged.

If you are interested in standing for election, please get in touch with the Clerk via email (winshampc@hotmail.co.uk) or by leaving a message at 01460 30441.
