The Parish Council election on 6th May was uncontested and the following councillors have been re-elected:
- Sue Pusey
- Anthony Wilkinson
- Graheme Pusey
- Jo Hooper
- Hilary Viktus
- Sue Lacey
This leaves us with 1 vacancy which will be declared at our next meeting with a view to filling it by co-option in June.
Parish Councillors work together to serve the community. They come from different backgrounds and bring a diverse range of skills. Teamwork is important as no individual Councillor can act in isolation.
More information about the role of a Parish Councillor can be found on this website. If interested in applying, please email the Clerk.

About Your Council
Westcott Parish Council represents the interests of the community in the village of Westcott, Buckinghamshire. Meetings take place at six weekly intervals at 7.30pm at Westcott Cricket Club. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
Your parish council would love to see more people coming along and getting involved! Shortly after the start of each meeting there is a fifteen minute public forum during which members of the public can raise local issues and question the Council.
After the public forum everyone is welcome to stay for the meeting of the council. However, during the formal meeting only elected members and the Clerk have the right to speak. Attending is a great way for residents of the parish to find out what is going on in the village, and be informed of issues that might affect them.
Westcott Annual Parish Meeting
The Chairman of Westcott Parish Council usually reads a report summarising all the council’s activities during the year. As this year’s meeting was cancelled, a written report has been produced and can be read here.
