We usually hold most of our meetings in Shevington Library, Gathurst Lane, Shevington, Wigan WN6 8HA on Wednesday evenings, generally twice a month. NB: for the foreseeable future, our meetings will be taking place online Via Teams, due to the pandemic. Please contact the clerk for a link if you would like to “attend” an online meeting.
See details of our meetings here.
While agenda items should be added via the clerk, the public are welcome to attend meetings to find out what the Parish Council is working on. If the matter is urgent, Parish Councillors can raise issues at the meetings so contact your local ward councillor.
