New Councillor: Jonathan Kingston

The Parish Council co-opted Jonathan Kingston at its meeting on 5 July 2022.

Jonathan has lived in Leek Wootton for over 20 years and has been involved in many projects within the community; his is a familiar face to many from his work pounding the streets to sell raffle tickets for the Church and Members of the Parish Council have already worked closely with him on the Parish Summer Fetes since 2016.

There were two candidates for the vacancy, which was triggered by the resignation of Joy Maisey in late 2021, and the co-option of Cllr Kingston means the Council now has a full compliment of 8 councillors again.

The Parish Council looks forward to working with Cllr Kingston.

Resignation: Councillor Joy Maisey

At its meeting on 4 January 2022 the Parish Council formally accepted the resignation of Cllr Joy Maisey, who joined the Council in January 2019.

The Chairman, Richard Coates writes, "It was with some sadness that I received a letter from Joy outlining her intention to resign from the Council for personal reasons.

"She has served us extremely well particularly being the spokesperson for Hill Wootton after Cllr Moore’s resignation. She did say she felt her appointment might only be temporary until a more permanent Hill Wootton representative could be found and with Cllr Elsy now on board she feels the time is right to devote herself to family and other pursuits.

"So on behalf of the Council, I would like to wish her well and thank her for the enthusiastic support she has given over the past three years. Her initiative in organising the competition for the most bee friendly garden is one I am sure we will continue. I for one will miss her cheery smile and infectious sense of humour!"

Cllr Maisey's resignation leaves a Vacancy on the Council
