Thursday 2nd May 2019 - Local Parish Council Elections

In 2019 all local Parish Councillors have to be re-elected/elected.   One of the existing Councillors will not be standing as they no longer meet the residency criteria and can not be considered for re-election.

If you are interested in joining the Committee please contact the Parish Clerk for further details "westwittonparishclerk@yahoo.co.uk"



We had great support at the recent Community Bonfire Party, it was widely enjoyed and we are pleased to say that we covered our outgoing costs and even made a small profit which we will use towards next year.




New Play Equipment Has Arrived!! LOOKS GREAT




New Housing Development Gets The Go Ahead



Parish Council Newsletter Winter 2017

Apologies for the short newsletter but there is very little to report at the moment.

Thank you to all the volunteers who have helped with several projects recently. We would not be able to carry out any of this work without the help and expertise of villagers who give their time willingly.

We had a big weeding and cutting down session in and around Mill Dam in October. We wanted to get this area clean and tidy in preparation for the Christmas tree.

A big thank you to Caroline and Adrian Thornton-Berry for donating the Christmas tree we have erected on Mill Dam. This is the first time, to our knowledge, that there has been a tree here and it looks very nice when lit in the evening. We are having a Christmas Carol Service there with mince pies and mulled wine after in the church, on Sunday 17th at 6.00pm. Thank you to the Wensleydale Heifer for donating the pies.

We have two rotas going at the minute, one is for winding the church clock and the other is for cleaning out Mill Dam. If you would like to be included on any of these rotas please contact Dave Brown 623127.

Thank you to Denzel Miles for donating a bench. This has been sited at the side of Nanny Well. The old bench was beyond repair.

We are looking at having some defibrillator training in spring 2018. We have had several new residents in the village and we had been asked if it was possible to have another session.

The planning meeting that was due to take place in December, regarding the new building application for new homes, will now take place in February. When we have a definite date we will display it on the notice board.

The Parish Council would like to wish all of you a very happy and healthy 2018.

If you have any concerns or issues please feel free to contact the clerk or catch any of us as we are out and about.
