Notice of co-option - apply by Monday 30th May 2022
Following last night’s meeting of the newly constituted Gresford Community Council, we are publishing today formal notice of our decision to co-opt to our vacant seats. The notice is here on screen and also as a document on our Vacancies page which you can download if you wish. Also there on the Vacancies page is the application form you need to use if you would like to apply to be co-opted onto the Council. There is information about the role and how the co-option process works too. This is an important role; Community Councillors work hard to help the community and keep it a safe and great place to live. We’d love it if you would join us.
The next Community Council meeting is:
the Full Council meeting on Thursday 9th June at 6.30pm (virtual)
Gresford Community Council works with the communities of Gresford and Marford and Hoseley to ensure they remain attractive, inclusive and safe places to live. Community Councillors are residents who volunteer their time to help with the provision of services and to improve the local area. The Council raises a budget each year (the Precept) which is contributed from the rates paid by households to spend in the local area. Council responsibilities include the provision of footway lighting, looking after the cemetery, school crossing patrols, children’s playgrounds, the lake and many other local facilities.
Mixed rugby training at our local primary schools - you made it happen!
One of the things the Community Council does is to give grants to local groups and organisations to do things which make our villages a better place to live in. We recently gave two small grants to the Wrexham Rugby Union Football Club to help them run mixed rugby training sessions in our two local primary schools. As you can see from the photos the children really got stuck in (despite the weather) and look like they are really enjoying themselves. The sessions are led by Welsh rugby legend Rachel Taylor and our own Cllr Denzil Brockhurst. Children from All Saints and The Rofft – plus Cllr Beryl Blackmore (though we haven’t got a photo of her tackling anyone yet) can be seen in the pics. Darland Y10 student, Iestyn Brockhurst, who has been selected and played for RGC, has also helped out with the training.
