Wellesbourne and Walton Parish Council publishes an Index of Shops and Amenities. This booklet is distributed free of charge throughout the parish; extra copies may be purchased from the Parish Clerk or the Library. Inevitably such a publication is never completely up to date but it is reissued every 2½ years. If the webmaster is made aware of any changes, they appear on the Search Favourites page under Shops.

The 2016 edition (white cover with colour pictures of various locations around Wellesbourne) is on the Parish Council's site at wellesbournepc.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Parish-Text-Pages-2015-FINAL_Layout-1.pdf" (4.6mb). If you didn't receive one, or feel your enterprise should be included in the next one, please let the Clerk know. The Parish Council owns the data and maintain the Index on its site. In the meantime some amenities are listed here below and links will be added where possible. Village amenities include:

  • Contact Your Politician
    I can't get the snazzy box to work on this site, so just click on the link and enter your post code when asked.
    Write to them (any level from District right up to European Parliament). See election note below.

    As of May 2015, Wellesbourne has been split into two single-member wards. District Councillors are:

    Wellesbourne East Anne Parry, Cons
    Wellesbourne West Danny Kendall, Cons

    Info on all District Councillors is here on the Stratford DC site. Outgoing Councillor David Johnston's dates are here.

    At Parliamentary level there was no change in Wellesbourne and Walton on 7 May 2015:
    Jeremy Wright (Cons, Kenilworth and Southam) still represents most of Wellesbourne and Walton;
    Nadhim Zahawi (Cons, Stratford-upon-Avon) still represents Hammond and Ramsay Greens.

    As of Jan 2015, the 7 Members of the European Parliament for the West Midlands are:

    Jill Seymour, James Carver, Bill Etheridge UKIP
    Neena Gill, Siôn Simon Labour
    Dan Dalton, Anthea McIntyre Conservative

    For UKIP, these are web contact pages; for Lab and Con they are actual e-mail addresses. The Writetothem.com link above is usually the best means of contacting our representatives as the postcode focus helps to ensure that the right person is contacted, so they do take more notice.

    Immediately after an election, however, as you can imagine, the workload of updating the whole country's representatives means that Writetothem.com takes a while to catch up. At these times individual webmasters such as myself are often in a position to do some research and come up with contact addresses.

  • Public and Consumer Protection

    Anti-social Behaviour Officer Kully Takhar is our first resort if we want to report any anti-social behaviour in South Warwickshire, and will issue a log sheet in order to record a pattern of events and come up with a plan of action. As such, they are finely focused and individually issued, so will not be made available for general distribution.
