Message from the Mayor

As part of the Mayoral Year, we will be holding a series of events to raise money for the Mayor's Fund.


We have already held some popular events including "Meet the Mayor", Wivenhoe Sale Trail, Metal Monday, Picnic in the Park and Fete on the Field. Thanks to all who attended.



I hope you will all be able to support these and future events as they happen, because all money raised will be put back into our Community. Watch out for more news on the Wivenhoe Mayor facebook page.

More About Wivenhoe Town Council

Wivenhoe Town CouncilWe hope that this website will prove to be both interesting and helpful for you. We have tried to concentrate our content on information that relates only to the Town Council. Consequently you can be informed on;

The roles and responsibilities of the Council are important to us and we do our best to make sure that you are pleased with what we do. Quite a few of the services affecting the town are provided by either Colchester Borough Council or Essex County Council. We have therefore provided links that will enable you to enquire further about these. Likewise, the abundance of Societies, Clubs and Voluntary organisations that make Wivenhoe such a flourishing community can also be accessed through this link - http://www.wivencyclopedia.org/.

Wivenhoe Town Councillors are all non salaried volunteers. They are supported by a small team of administrators and enjoy the benefits of an Estates ground team together with staff who help to maintain and keep the William Loveless Hall. All are dedicated to providing and maintaining the best local public services within their attainment. Equally, they are available for you to contact so that you can question and discuss on any matter that affects you as a resident of the Town.
