Your Parish Council
Waltham Parish Council is made up of 15 residents of Waltham who look after various aspects of the village on your behalf. The Parish Council meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 7pm in Waltham library. You are most welcome to come along to a Parish Council meeting. The meetings start with an open forum, where residents and others can ask questions or put an issue forward that may be concerning them.
There is a Parish Office in Kirkgate car park, facing the village green, which is home to our Clerk.
The Parish Office is open to residents Tuesdays to Fridays between 10am and 12noon (except for holidays). There is an answerphone, so messages can be left at any time.
The Parish owns and is responsible for Grove Park, the Village Green, the Cenotaph, the Cemetery, two sets of allotments, Well Lane, the bowling green, tennis court, basketball court, table tennis table, teen shelter, BMX track and public toilets. We call these Parish assets and we have various working groups that regularly meet to ensure that they are well looked after.
Parish Councillors give their time freely and have their own ‘patch’ of the village, which is checked for problems such as street lamps not working, blocked drains or damaged footpaths. Such issues are the responsibility of North East Lincolnshire Council and when found, issues are referred to them for attention.
We liaise with many groups and organisations, such as our 2 Ward Councillors, Humberside Police, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, ERNLLCA, Town and Parish Council Liaison, Waltham Windmill Trust and Waltham Leas Primary Academy.
The Parish Council runs various events throughout the year, including Waltham in Bloom, Remembrance Parade, Carols on the Green, May Queen Ceremony, Tidy Up Days, Senior Residents Tea Parties and Children’s Fun Days.
The Parish Council is very pro-active and always seeking like-minded people to join. Please get in touch if you are interested in becoming a Parish Councillor.
