We are delighted to welcome our three new Members, Sanchia Nash, Phil Booth and Chris Singleton to the Town Council. They bring a wealth of knowledge and endeavour to us and I am enormously pleased to be working with them.
These are exciting times for the Council as we strive to improve both our services and our resilience in testing economic times for local councils.
I would also like to welcome our new Town Clerk Hazel Humphreys who joined Wivenhoe Town Council at the end of May having previously worked at Colchester Borough Council and in the financial sector.
On behalf of councillors past and present I would like to thank Antoinette "Toni" Stinson who will be retiring from her role as Wivenhoe Town Clerk after 43(!) years of service on the 6th of July after a handover.

There are not many people in Wivenhoe who can remember the town council without Toni, who has very much been part of the history of Wivenhoe Town Council since starting here in 1974. Click here to read about the history of Wivenhoe Town Council as compiled by Toni.
