Goldshaw Booth Parish Council

Tidying, Councillor Vacancies, Clerk, Spenbrook Mill...

Despite the inclement weather, it has been a joy to see so many residents turn out this last month, to tidy up the villages. The big team effort with the weeding, strimming, planting and cleaning has really paid off and huge thanks to everyone. As well as showing off our picturesque surroundings to their full potential, it also brings people together for conversation and friendship.

It gives us great pleasure to announce that Stephen Mahon from Newchurch is newly recruited to GBPC. With boundless energy and positivity, he is already making an impact and has launched the new Goldshaw Booth WhatsApp Group. We still have two councillor vacancies remaining, so please do get in touch if you are interested.

We are extremely indebted to Jennifer Sutcliffe, former Clerk of GBPC who is lending her vast professional knowledge and expertise to support the Parish Council through this challenging time. We have had four clerks in the last few years which has inevitably led to some difficulties which Jennifer is straightening out.

In other news, we have had positive conversations with the agent at Spenbrook Mill who has committed to replacing the temporary perimeter fencing, tidying up the showhouse and weeding the communal areas. We are told that four more houses have sold, and we look forward to welcoming the new residents to Goldshaw Booth. We are also pleased to report that we have secured the funding and commissioned a contractor to tackle the ash-die back in Sparable Wood this month.

There was a fabulous turnout for the Nibbles in the Narthex event at St Mary’s Church last Saturday – a super evening of music and food was enjoyed by all and another date for your diaries is the GBPC Summer BBQ on Saturday 10th August 2024, with further details to be announced shortly.
