Community News From Around Our Area

What’s Happening at Kenilworth Town Council?

Now that summer has firmly made its presence known with colourful bursts bringing parks and gardens to life, we can all start to enjoy the longer, warmer summer days.

This is accompanied by the excellent news regarding vaccination roll out and vaccination rates, thanks to the hard work of our fantastic NHS workers and volunteers. Our community volunteers, both Covid Champions and members of the Covid-19 Support Group have all done fantastic work too. Thank you everyone!

The Town Council has continued to work hard to ensure all planning applications and grant applications are carefully considered. As we moved into a new Mayoral year, with Cllr Peter Jones (Green Party) and Cllr Samantha Cooke (Liberal Democrats) taking the roles of Mayor and Deputy Mayor respectively, the Town Council looked to celebrate the town and all of the wonderful people and businesses in it.

The Council’s Town Centre Working Group planned an Open Day Market on Saturday 29th May, which was accompanied by the Mayoral judging of a Spring and Nature themed Shop Window Competition, and the Climate Roadmap Working group also organised Kenilworth’s first Naturewatch Week during the summer half term, which brought together a variety of family focused activities, along with photography and art competitions.

All Town Councillors continue to work hard to represent and engage with residents, listening to various suggestions and concerns. If there is something you want to raise with the Town Council, or get advice about Town Council matters, contact details are available on the website.

Finally, as the summer holidays approach, don’t forget that residents of the parish of Kenilworth can get Castle passes for a small fee, which gives free access to the Castle. If you are interested in this, then you can get a form online from www.kenilworthweb.co.uk/your-council/about/community-support/castle-pass-application/ or from outside Jubilee House.
