Welcome to Whitfield Parish Council Website

This site has been developed to give the residents access to their Council.

We hope to regularly update these pages to communicate what the Council wishes to achieve throughout the year and what progress is being made on any current projects or issues which have been raised.

We will also post local news and information along with links to local clubs and organisations and events in the Parish.

Parish Council updates:

Following reports of the Whitfield Juniors having to clear up glass from a broken vodka bottle and other litter outside the changing rooms on 15 April, CCTV has recorded a group of 8 teenagers on the previous night at 11o’clock responsible for this. A report has been forwarded to the Police for consideration of taking further action on this dangerous and anti social behaviour.

Coronavirus COVID-19 Information

Whitfield Parish Council has initiated contingency arrangements for the duration of the current Coronavirus pandemic.

From May, the Parish Council will resume face to face meetings where possible as tele-conferencing meetings are no longer permitted. Meetings will only be held if a Safety Risk Assessment shows that all current Covid-19 Government Guidelines can be put in place. It may be necessary to re-locate to larger venues.

Parish  Council Staff continue to work, in accordance with all Government Guidelines, to ensure statutory obligations are met and to carry out regular Health and Safety checks and Maintenance of the Recreation Ground and associated buildings.

Children’s Play Areas and Gym Equipment All Open

Under the Current Government Guidelines for Coronavirus, we have now been able to open the MUGA Games Court and the Adult and Children’s Gym equipment.

The required Safety Inspections and Risk Assessment has been carried out and the situation is being monitored for any new guidance and advice from Central Government.

Please remember to take all the necessary precautions in line with Government Guidance. The Parish Council does not have the Staff or Resources to regularly clean the equipment, so it is very much a case of users taking their own COVID-19 precautions and bringing a pack of anti-viral disinfecting wipes and bottle of hand sanitising gel with them.

The waste bins in and around the play areas will be regularly emptied and the regular inspections and safety checks will continue to be carried out.
