May Elections

At the close of nominations for the Parish Council elections on 7th May only five nominations were received for the seven positions available. Therefore it will not be necessary to hold an election as the nominations are uncontested.  The five councillors who were nominated are: Adrian Cooke, Jo Ling, Nick Shaw, Sarah Sturmey and Lesley Blount. Wymeswold Parish Council has positions for seven councillors so we have two vacancies to fill through co-option. If you are interested in the affairs of the village and would like to contribute to issues such as planning applications or have ideas for our play areas and open spaces, please get in touch with the Clerk for further information on being co-opted as parish councillor.

The General Election will take place on 7th May and the polling station will as usual be in the Memorial Hall. To vote in an election you must be on the electoral register. You can register online or by post.

Sports Pavilion Refurbishment

You may have noticed that the sports pavilion refurbishment is well underway and is progressing at a steady state. We are looking forward to the unveiling of the new building and are very excited about this fantastic new facility which will be a great benefit and asset to the village.

A Final Note

After 16 years of service Cllr Ken Barratt has decided to stand down from the Parish Council. With his local knowledge of the village Cllr Barratt has been a great asset to the Parish Council and will be missed. We wish him all the best in his retirement.

The next meeting of Wymeswold Parish Council will held on Monday 11th May 2015 in the Jubilee Room, Wymeswold Memorial Hall, Clay Street, Wymeswold, starting at 7:30pm. All parishioners are welcome to attend.

The Annual Parish Meeting and the Annual Meeting of the Parish Council will precede the normal monthly meeting of the Parish Council and will commence at 7:15 pm.  All parishioners are welcome to attend.
