15 June 2021Two Co-opted Members for Weston Rhyn Parish Council

Two new members joined the council on Monday night. Cllr Polly Smith, who has served on the council for a number of years, had not put herself up for election in case others in the village wanted to stand. However, when there were 2 vacancies, she tried for co-option and was successful.

Cllr Pam Manley has also been a councillor a few years ago. The Parish Council welcomes them both. 

Another gentleman was up for co-option but wasn't successful on this occasion. Hopefully he will put himself forward, if a future vacancy arises. 

The Parish Council meetings are always open to the public (please wear a mask and sanitise your hands, keeping away from other members of the public) and everyone is very welcome. The next meeting is the second Monday in July at the Village Institute.

22 April 2021April Council Meeting

At the April 2021 Parish Council meeting, thanks were extended to retiring Councillors who were not standing again.

Long serving Councillor Brian Oakley stood down after more than 35 years service as did Councillors Jackie Bavin, Rose Law, Mick Keay and Polly Smith. Thanks were extended to them all for their long service to the community.

This was also the last meeting for the retiring Clerk, Roger Dyke with Helen Belton taking over from the end of the month.

Roger Dyke had served the Council for 32 years since appointment in June 1989 and had attended all 354 meetings of the Council throughout this period. Mr Dyke was thanked for his service.


Following the recent invitation for nominations to serve on Weston Rhyn Parish Council, 11 parishioners put their names forward for 13 places. No Election will therefore be held and co-option will take place for the two vacancies. The Notice can be found in the Library.
