We hope you find our website of value to you in providing information about your Parish Council - and your parish – which covers our three villages – Shedfield, Shirrell Heath and Waltham Chase.
The Parish Council is seeking to respond to the changes and challenges brought about by COVID-19. We have a lot of information on this website you can access.
There are helpers and volunteers that have come forward to help people with shopping for essentials and collecting medicine etc. If you don't know who is doing this for your road, then you can contact Mel and Nicky, volunteer coordinators, and they will advise and support you. Their details are on our COVID-19 page. Click on the RED banner, above. Thank you also to everyone who has offered support to enable this service to be possible.
We have had to postpone our Parish Assembly and some of our meetings, but we are now trying to hold some of them virtually and offer the opportunity for people to contribute; either remotely, or by sending an e-mail which will be discussed at the meeting. Details of the meetings will be advertised on this website.
At the present time all our play equipment is closed off although there is still access to the Recreation Grounds for exercise. To enable others to benefit, please adhere to the Government’s ‘exercise only’ rules, keeping at least 2 metres away from other people.
At this current time, please keep your dogs on leads on ALL of our grounds.
Please follow the Government guideline and Stay at Home, Protect the NHS and Save Lives. Following damage to the pavilion, for those of you with older children who have not been observing this, we ask that you make sure you know where these young people are.
I would like to thank our members of staff for their hard work and adjustments they have made, to those working on the Parish Council website and Facebook and to Gary our Community Service Officer who is working in the Community. One thing he has been doing is collecting food to donate at the Food Bank, to help the local families who are finding it difficult at the present time.
Finally, I would like to thank you all for your support of the local initiative to support those in need at this time. Moving forward, we will advertise opportunities to assist on our Facebook page and under ‘Latest News’ on the home page of our Website. Thank you all in advance for your support.
Please contact the Clerk for more details - Telephone 01329 830060 or e-mail directly to the Clerk,
Councillor Margaret Jones
Chair of Shedfield Parish Council
