Our scheduled meeting for August 6th has been cancelled

Our next meetings are to be held on 03 September 2018 :

Planning & General Purposes Committee at 6.45 pm followed by the Parish Council meeting at 7.15pm

Office Closure 9th - 12 th August inclusive

Please be aware that Parish Council email addresses (including Councillor and Neighbourhood Plan) and the Parish Council website are being switched to a new Server from Thursday 9th August.

This is likely to take some time to complete and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to Wellow residents.

With this in mind, the Parish Office will be closed for business from 1pm on Wednesday 8th August re-opening at 9am Tuesday 14th August.

We will post Councillor contact details and areas of responsibility nearer the time should an emergency arise during this period.

Following a rise in incidences being reported during out of office hours, we thought it would be helpful to advise that the office is usually staffed Monday to Thursday between 9am-1pm when you can contact the Parish Office via email or telephone.

Email: Clerk@wellowparish.org.uk or 01794 323275.

We endeavour to deal with all calls and emails as promptly as possible.

In cases requiring urgent and immediate attention when the office is closed, you can contact a Parish Councillor.

Contact details are displayed on Parish noticeboards, in our office window and on the website www.wellowparish.org.uk
