Kempsford Parish Council


Further to the recent notice about the vacancy arising from the retirement of Sue Griffin from Whelford, the time has passed for an election to be called so the Parish Council now wish to co-opt a new parish councillor.

Could this be you?      Are you interested in serving your local community?

Kempsford Parish covers the villages of Kempsford and Whelford, and the hamlets of Dunfield and Dudgrove.

The Council meets monthly, usually the third Tuesday in the month, and meetings are generally held at Kempsford Village Hall, with Whelford Village Hall as a reserve option.

Parish Councillors volunteer their time to work on behalf of their local community. If you have lived in the Parish, or within 3 miles of it, for at least a year and are over 18, you are probably eligible (please check with the clerk for further eligibility criteria). Training will be given by the Gloucestershire Association of Parish & Town Councils, and funded by the Parish Council, if desired.

A copy of the Application and Eligibility Form, together with the Council’s Co-option Policy is available on the ‘Publications’ page of this website or via the Clerk.

Applications close on Monday 13th July 2020.

A decision to co-opt an applicant will be made at the next meeting of the Parish Council which will be held on Tuesday 21st July 2020.

The Parish Council is continuing to seek land for the provision of allotments.

Recent discussions with a landowner have potentially identified a very small area that could be used for 2 allotments, although suitability would need to be looked in to further as it is not fenced.

It would be useful to know what demand there is for allotments within the Parish, so if you are interested please can you contact the Clerk or Tony Williams (tonywilliams@kempsfordparishcouncil.net Tel: 01285 810628.

Thank you




We are contacting as many organisations as possible within Fairford, Lechlade and the surrounding villages to advise that we have funds available to provide financial support to those affected by Covid-19.

A fund has been established to provide financial support to local organisations, charities, volunteer groups, families and individuals who have been impacted by Covid-19. It is available to these groups and individuals who are within our area of operations; that is Fairford, Lechlade and the surrounding villages.

The fund has been established due to the enormous generosity of The Lakes By Yoo Company and the residents at The Lakes By Yoo development. They have asked Friends of Fairford & Lechlade Communities, your local charity, to manage the fund for the community.

Application forms for funding can be downloaded from our website www.friendsoffairford.org.uk or obtained by emailing chair@friendsoffairford.org.uk

Applications can only be made for support funding in relation to the Covid-19 crisis including:

1. Expenditure on short-term needs for example:

  • Costs/expenses incurred in assisting vulnerable people and families obtaining essential supplies.
  • Expenses for volunteer groups, community organisations, local charities who are providing help to the community.
  • Funding to assist families/individuals who have suffered a sudden loss of income creating financial hardship due to Covid-19
  • 2. Support funding over the medium term to local organisations and charities who have lost their income streams because of Covid-19 and need some funding to maintain or re-establish their services within the community.
