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.
Having served as the Deputy Mayor for the previous 18 months I am honoured to have been chosen to represent and promote our wonderful town for 2019 / 2020. I genuinely do not believe that there is another town that has the facilities and events that Barton has to offer, Barton’s heritage, historical buildings, nature reserves and arts facilities are second to none, attracting visitors from far and wide.
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 Young Carers as the charity that I wish to raise money for during my year in office.
Young Carers is an organisation that supports children who, for whatever reason, have become carers for a parent, sibling or other member of their family. The money raised will be used for the young carers themselves, to give them some respite such as a day to the sea side, a Christmas party and the opportunity to socialise with other children.
If you have any concerns or comments about the above or any issues that you feel the council could assist you with please do not hesitate to contact the council office or contact any of your 12 councillors directly, we will do our utmost to help.
