Winster Parish Council Residents Survey

Winster Parish Council Residents Survey

The parish council has a responsibility to be well informed about local views so that we can represent the interests of all our parishioners. To that end, we are seeking the views of Winster residents via a resident's survey. The aim of the survey is to collect information about problems, concerns or opportunities for the parish. Any person in your household may submit their own separate response. The survey is available here. Paper copies of the survey are available at the shop. All responses should be submitted by the 22nd December 2019. Paper copies should be returned to the shop by the closing date. We will then review responses, collate the results and let you know the outcome of the survey at the start of the New Year. We look forward to receiving your valuable feedback which will inform and direct the work of the parish council. More »

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Councillor Dave Robinson 650395 » Less

Volunteers Required for Snow Patrol - Winter 2019/20

Volunteers Required for Snow Patrol - Winter 2019/20

With winter just around the corner the parish council is planning to make sure we are ready for when colder conditions arrive.

As part of that planning we are once again seeking public-spirited residents to help keep Winster moving this winter should snow and icy conditions strike.

For nine years, a small army of snow volunteers have provided invaluable support in helping clear footways in the village following ice formation and snow fall during some of hardest winters experienced in recent times. More »

Full training is provided along with protective clothing, equipment and a map of the routes to be treated.

For further information and how to get involved visit our Winter Maintenance page of the website. » Less
