Monday Lunch at Wellow Village Hall

Are you at a loose end on Mondays? Would you enjoy a hot home cooked meal? Then why not come along to Wellow Village Hall and meet new friends in our village?

As we are a non-profit organisation, all we ask is a contribution of £3 (for a hot 2-course meal + coffee)

We can even collect you and take you home again – how difficult is that!

So why not call Lesley Weldon on 323734 and book your place.
Lunch is served at 12.30.

We look forward to welcoming you.

For more information about the Council have a look at the Parish Website:, the Parish Council newsletters, available from the local shops, Parish Office and on the Parish Website.

All applicants will be offered an informal interview prior to ratification at a Full Council Meeting, at which the Co Option candidates will be considered and the opportunity to give a three-minute presentation at that meeting, for the benefit of any Members not in attendance at the informal interview.

Signs up on Wellow Common

Frequent users of the Common will have seen the Parish Council signs go up about ground nesting birds.

We all have a duty of care to respect our environment, so we would urge everyone visiting the Common to keep to the main tracks between March and July when rare birds nest on the ground.

Disturbance to the birds will leave eggs and chicks vulnerable to predators.  If you walk a dog on the Common is it important to keep it close by, and preferably on a lead between March and July.
