Regular reporting by


Winsham Parish Council wish to keep readers regularly updated on their deliberations about matters of interest to residents of the parish.

Many elements of the council's work are administrative, and of little interest, other than the council and the parish clerk do the work efficiently and effectively, while keeping the cost to the precept to a level that realistically makes this possible.

Other items are of course frequently appearing on the agenda for their meetings, and these sometimes need more detailed treatment so that readers can appreciate the different perspectives surrounding the discussions.

However the need for brevity is always with us, and for some these reports may not provide the detail they would like. For these the opportunity to talk to a parish councillor is always there, and when the Covid -19 crisis recedes, no doubt the monthly surgeries will recommence.

These reports will also feature in the Joint Parish Magazine, which will be a benefit to all those who prefer the printed word to its digital alternative, or do not have broadband.

To facilitate easy access to current and past parish council reports, a separate web page  has been set up, accessed from this page. See below:
