What’s Happening at Kenilworth Town Council?

With summer finally here, the Council are looking forward to the new Civic year and the exciting line up of events. To make the most of the ever-improving weather, the Town Council’s Climate Emergency Working group once again ran Naturewatch Week following the success of last year’s inaugural event, with Cllr. Sam Cooke organising the events and schedule with a fantastic team of volunteers.

June has started with a long bank-holiday weekend to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee and Kenilworth Town Council have organised a Street Party on Warwick Road for 3rd June. Cllrs Sam Cooke, Richard Dickson, Alix Dearing and Alison Firth worked with local businesses and community groups to bring the event together. Cllrs Sam Cooke and Michael Coker have also arranged for the Talisman Square Market to align with the party to make it an even more community focused event, bringing people together to support local businesses and celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.

We also look forward to other community events such as the Two Castles Run and the Lions Show.

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, 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. Having revamped our process, applications can now be made online, and all passes come in a handy credit card size.  Please visit our website for more information and to apply.
