My name is Sharon Harris and I am delighted to be the Chair of Walton Parish Council for 2021/22. We are pleased to introduce our new Parish Council website which we hope you will find engaging and accessible. It is part of our overall strategy to improve communication with our residents. The website will evolve throughout the year as we add and change information, so please bear with us for the first few months. In the interim, please feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions that will help us improve the website for you.
In November last year, we sent out our first Parish Newsletter for some time and we hope to issue two newsletters a year to ensure we keep in direct touch with our residents. Thank you to those of you who contacted us with such lovely feedback about the newsletter, it is clearly very welcome by many. Please look out for the next one in March/April. During the past very difficult months for us all, we have all had to grapple with new technology and your Parish Council has continued to meet every month via zoom. Now that life appears to be gradually returning to 'normal' we are meeting once again in the Parish Rooms. Unfortunately, the rooms are fairly small, which does place a limitation on the numbers who are able to attend. It is always good to see members of the public attending. Our meetings are on the first Thursday of every month at 7.00pm. If you would like to attend, please contact our Clerk, Ray Hallam on 01925 264201.
In the last few months, we have been able welcome new Parish Councillors. They are Cllrs Amanda Bowles, David Hazeldine and Anita Williams. They join us with lots ofideas and enthusiasm. They bring new skills and will help us in our continuing commitment to make Walton the best it can be.
With very best wishes to you all,
Cllr Sharon Harris
