Community Council

 

Community Council

The Community Council is a group of people who give their time to help look after the ‘nuts & bolts’ bolts of the village and surrounding communities. For example, if benches need repair, signage is missing or damaged, drains need clearing, extra rubbish bins. These are just some of the things they request the County Council to attend to. They lobby County Councillors on our behalf, get regular reports from the Police on any problems in our area.

There are representatives from Elrig, Mochrum, Monreith and of course Port William who attend these meetings.

They fund this website and indirectly the facebook page see HERE

If there is a problem in the village they need to know about it so contact them either via the persons listed below on or via the contact page on this website.

Port William Community Council meets on the last Wednesday of month at 7.30 pm in the Maxwell Hall. ALL WELCOME, do come along
