Town Clerk 3 August 2020
On behalf of your councillors I would like to welcome you to the Town Council website, which provides information on your councillors, notices of council meetings and details of events organised by the council throughout the year.
I feel honoured to have been chosen to serve as the Town mayor for this year, I have lived in or around the town for most of my life and there is nowhere else I would consider a home. We are very lucky to have so much heritage and history here along with what would normally be a packed events calendar bringing people from all over to visit.
The pandemic has meant we are in strange times at the moment, the way the town has come together by volunteering, delivering and providing meals to support those who need it most has filled me with pride and been noticed across the county
Your town councils role is to work for you; we strive to improve the town for its residents, to work with many outside bodies to maintain the great offerings that we have to attract visitors and to ensure that the inevitable growth of Barton is not to the detriment of its residents.
Many organisations within Barton are supported by the Town Council and the council itself organises and hosts the annual Picnic in the Park and Christmas Festival. We also carry out bulb planting around the town, provide hanging baskets / planters in the town centre and strategically placed benches around the town and along the Humber Bank. Councillors with the assistance of many volunteer groups carry out litter picks throughout the year.
I have chosen Humber rescue to be my charity for this year, they are a fantastic cause that work hard to keep one of the most stretches of water in the world safe. Humber rescue is an independent charity and receive no central funding, this means they are completely reliant on fundraising.
If you have any concerns or comments you feel the council could assist you with please do not hesitate to contact the council office or one of your 12 councillors who will do our best to help or advise you
