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.

At the Annual Parish Council Meeting held on May 4th 2021, Pat Woodfield announced her resignation.

Cllr Andrew Gough was elected as Chairman for 2021-22. He thanked Pat for her contribution over the past 6 years, including 2 years as Chair.

Please join us in welcoming Cllr Adam Wylie, who has been coopted to the Parish Council.

An Annual Report for the year to March 31st 2021 has been published.

The Parish Council's April meeting has been rearranged again, to 27th April.

There has been much debate between the great and good of local government about what business can and cannot be conducted during the period of national mourning for HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.

Our rearrangement follows new advice from the National Association of Civic Officers (NACO) and National Association of Local Councils (NALC) :

‘there is an official period of mourning for eight days set out in the Government guidance. As a result these days should be excluded for calculation of time and any timescales that end in this period should be postponed until the first day after the period in accordance with section 243 of the Local Government Act 1972. We do not draw a distinction between national and public mourning.’ 

In simple terms, we are required to give 3 clear days' notice of our meeting, and we are unable to give notice of our meeting until the end of the mourning period. 

Our Annual Meeting of the Parish had been planned for the 27th April. The Parish Council will decide at its April meeting whether the Annual Meeting of the Parish should be rescheduled.
