New Website Launch:
The new Parish Website will be launched on 21st March most of the content has been copied and updated from the old website so it should be familiar although the structure and the menus have been changed to improve access.
The aim of the website is to provide online, up to date information about local organisations, community activities, the parish council, planning applications and village amenities.
New features of the website include -
- a calendar of village events
- latest news items
- local road works updates
- tailored viewing from mobiles,tablets any desktop computers
- email subscription to keep in touch with news, events, planning applications
Going forward the Parish Council would like to enhance the new website with a directory of local businesses and to promote the attractions and amenities of the village to potential visitors.
We hope you will find the new website easy to use and informative and would welcome your feedback on any aspect of appearance, functionality or content either through the online contact form (under the Information menu) or to the Website Manager at email@example.com.

Parish Council News – February 2015
January WPC Minutes have been published
The Willows appeal
We are disappointed to have to report that the appeal to build 15 houses at The Willows, Long Marston Road (and to demolish “Sunrays") was allowed by the Planning Inspectorate. This brings the total number of new houses for which permission has been granted to 102.
New road names
The Parish Council were asked by the developers to suggest a name for the new road of houses to be built at the rear of Fairlea on Barton Road. After discussion with the nearest neighbour, the name “Barton Meadow" was suggested and this has been agreed by the developer. We are advised that the name “Samantha Close" has been chosen by Cllr Barnes for the new development at the rear of Ashgrove, Long Marston Road.
Alcester Safer Neighbourhood Team, Warwickshire Police
We have been informed of a number of burglaries and vehicle thefts in Welford over recent weeks. Please do not leave items visible in cars and ensure in particular that outbuildings are secure. If you have any information on any recent incidents please contact the police by phoning 101.
In addition, please remember that ALL trades people calling at your house offering to do work there and then for cash is suspicious. Never pay for work in advance and always agree a reasonable price before work is started. Remember it is your property and hence your decision on whether to accept trades people on your land. Always get a receipt and record the person's name and vehicle details. If in doubt ring the Police on 101 to report them as bogus callers. Honest, accredited businesses will not mind you checking their credentials.
Please be aware that the online "Contact Us" form on the Parish Council Website is not working due to a technical problem that is being investigated.
