Wistaston Community Council Website

Welcome to our website. You have made the first steps to finding out about 'What's On' in the great community that is Wistaston. We here at the Wistaston Community Council welcome you to come along to these events and, hopefully, getting a bit more involved in your local village yourself in helping it continue to thrive for future years.

We are a group of around 30 volunteers who give up a little time - either an hour one evening each month to come to our local event planning meetings, or half a day a year to help set up and run an event. We are not a political or parish council, we are here purely for you and your family to enjoy our community.

Whatever you can do to contribute is always very warmly welcomed. You will meet many more people and find out about your community. We look forward to hearing from you.

COVID-19 Update

The Wistaston Community Council regrets that our monthly public meetings have been cancelled until further notice.

We will assess each of our events this year to review whether it will be possible hold them. Any decisions will be made with prevailing government advice and with the Public Health of paramount importance.

100 Club update:

As our members will know, the 100 club is run though volunteers visiting members to collect subs and distribute prizes. With the need to stay at home unless absolutely necessary, we have taken the decision to pause the 100 Club for the safety of both our volunteers and of our members.

The 100 Club will resume once the government advice is that it is safe to do so.
For more information please contact John Lomax on 663037.

These are difficult times and we hope and trust that the community will stay safe and keep well.

The 2020 Wistaston Village Fete has been cancelled

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the Wistaston Community Council has taken the sad but necessary decision to cancel the Wistaston Village Fete due to take place on 20th June 2020.

We know that the fete will be missed by many in our community as well as the stall holders and performers who help to make the fete the success it has been over the years.

The 2020 Flower and Produce Show has been cancelled

We have sadly made the decsion that we can't run the Flower and Prodiuce show this year. As this is an indoor event there is no way we could run the event with anly level of social distancing.

We will be reviewing the Model Boat and Duck race that is due to take place in September. Although this is an outdoor event, it would still be difficult to maintain a level of social distancing. We will need to review this event with reference to the government's public health advice nearer the time.

Our other events will be assessed nearer the time.
