Parish Council Elections

Starts: 02 May 2019 08:00
Ends: 02 May 2019 22:00

Location: Village Hall

There will be elections for North Somerset Council and Parish Councils this year and you will have the opportunity to vote for new Parish Councillors.

Have you considered standing as a Parish Councillor? Not all of the current Abbots Leigh Parish Councillors will be standing for re-election so this is an opportunity for fresh ideas on the Council and new candidates are definitely needed. It would be good to have a choice of candidates to vote for. We only have 5 Parish Councillors in Abbots Leigh, as well as the Parish Clerk and our District Councillor, so the atmosphere in meetings is generally informal whilst following proper process.

As the lowest but most accessible level of Local Government, your Parish Council generally operates in a non-political environment. However as a Parish Councillor, you could have an opportunity to personally participate in local democracy and play a major part in influencing how your local community is run.

Nomination packs are available to download from the Electoral Commission.  Nominations open on 20th March and close at 4pm on 3rd April. Do not be put off by the requirement to deliver nominations to Weston-Super-Mare by hand as there will be a number of nominations from the area. If you contact Julie Smart in good time she will try to coordinate delivery.

Abbots Pool Working Party

The working party’s aim is to keep this asset on our doorstep looking great.  We maintain the pool and surrounds by:

    removing invasive species;
    maintaining utilities within the pool area;
    litter picking;
    clearing leaves;
    removing fallen trees from pathways;
    rebuilding dead hedges; and
    removing detritus from the cave and the cascade.

It’s a great way to do your bit for the community, get outside meet your neighbours, enjoy nature, coffee & cake and feel virtuous having done something good for the community.

Abbots Pool Working Party

Starts: 09 June 2019 10:00
Ends: 09 June 2019 12:00

Location: Abbots Pool

We had a very productive working party in February. We cleared the drain on Manor Road and dispersed the big puddle that had formed at the entrance to the pool. We also cleared the drains that run under the car park.

The working party’s aim is to keep this asset on our doorstep looking great.  We maintain the pool and surrounds by:


    removing invasive species;
    maintaining utilities within the pool area;
    litter picking;
    clearing leaves;
    removing fallen trees from pathways;
    rebuilding dead hedges; and
    removing detritus from the cave and the cascade.
