At its last meeting the Parish Council agreed to fill one of the vacancies on the Council by co-opting Mrs Angela Knapp on to the Council. Mrs Knapp lives in Crown Road.

There still remains one vacancy on the Council. If any resident is interested in becoming a Parish Councillor please contact the Parish CLerk on 01865 875615 or pop in to the Parish Office.

At its Annual General Meeting Councillor Janet Carr was obliged to step down as Parish Council Chairman having served three successive years in the post. The Council’s Standing Orders state that that is the maximum amount a Councillor can be in the post in one go.

The new Chairman is Councillor Jim Reilly.

The Wheatley Parish Council website is now officially launched.

This website is for Parish Council related items such as Agendas for their various meetings and their minutes (once approved).

News items relating to the Parish Council, the names and addresses of the Parish, District and County Councillors and links to useful local government web pages eg planning applications at South Oxfordshire District Council will be the main content.

It is not intended to replace the two monthly newsletter distributed to all  households in Wheatley and Holton.

The Parish Council hopes this will be an important means by which  Wheatley residents can follow the business of the council.

Constructive comment are welcome. please use the e-mail section at the foot of the home page.

Gareth Morris

Clerk to Wheatley Parish Council
