Environment Agency Flood Risk Meeting

On the 6thJuly, between 10:00 and 11:00, the EA are looking forward to meet the Parish Council and any interested residents to discuss flood risk in Woodborough, in particular the Woodborough Brook. The EA will discuss the work they have done to date to understand the options available to reduce the impacts of flooding from the watercourses in Woodborough. We will make sure there is plenty of time for the community to ask questions.

The meeting will be held remotely, using Microsoft Teams.

The EA will host the meeting and the Teams invitation will come from the EA.

If you wish to attend, please forward your name and email address to the Clerk - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. - by noon on June 30th. Averil will collate the names and forward them to the EA.

Following Pat Woodfield's resignation in May, we are delighted to welcome Cllr Liz Anderson to WPC.

Liz was co-opted at the meeting held on June 8th.

Liz is a relative newcomer to the village but is very familiar with it. She has a wealth of experience to bring to the PC, not least a brief stint as a parish clerk!

WPC's June 8th meeting will be the first since March 2020 to be held in the Village Hall.

WPC, in line with most town and parish councils, supported the extension of the facility to hold remote meetings beyond May. However, the Government has not extended this facility but instead has made clear its requirement that local councils meet in person, while ensuring that meetings are safe.

Our meeting will take place in the main hall. The meeting will be conducted in accordance with WPC’s Covid-19 risk assessment. 

Please note due to 2 metre spacing, a  maximum of 6 members of the public may attend (first come, first served). Face coverings must be worn when entering the building and walking round. Attendees must check in using the QR code or sign the book provided for tracing purposes.

Woodborough Parish Council's Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) has been submitted to PKF Littlejohn, External Auditor.

See the accounts page to view sections 1 and 2 of the AGAR, and find out how you may inspect the accounts.

Today Covid-19 restrictions reduce across England, and up to 30 people may gather outside. The Governors' Field will now be open around the clock and the daily cleaning has stopped. Please continue to be careful and observe the advice of Public Health England.

It is hoped that on June 21st all legal limits on social contact will be removed, and that the final Covid measures in the Governors' Field can be lifted. We will act in accordance with national guidelines.

Can we send a huge thank you to the small team of volunteers who came out in rain and shine to wipe down the equipment and lock up at night. We owe you all a huge debt of gratitude for keeping the play area open and helping to support the physical and mental health of our younger residents and their families.

THANK YOU.
