Wrockwardine Wood and Trench Parish Council
The Parish Council held its first meeting on 29th April 1988 so it is just over twenty-nine years old. The Parish Council Centre was officially opened by Bruce Grocott MP on 24th October 1998.
The Council has eleven councillors covering three wards, two on Wrockwardine Wood Ward, eight for Trench Ward and one councillor for the East Ward. There are two members of staff, the Clerk and the cleaner/caretaker.
The Council maintains the Parish Council Centre which is a community building, and manages allotments at Stanmore Drive, we fund the maintenance of street lighting in the parish and are responsible for the maintenance of the churchyard at Holy Trinity Church, Wrockwardine Wood.
The Council provides grants to groups within the community and to outside groups that benefit the community. You can download a grant application form here. The Council makes representation to other local authorities on planning and other matters and lobbies for improvements in footpaths, repair of pot holes, maintenance of bus shelters, street cleansing and grass verges and hedge cutting.
