NOTICE OF VACANCY
1. Notice is given that a casual vacancy exists in the office of Councillor for the Melling Parish Council caused by the resignation of Councillor Cllr Debbie Millican
MELLING Parish Council are working together with local residents to make our village a safer and cleaner place.
Making Melling safer for everyone
Unfortunately, inconsiderate parking has become an increasingly hazardous practice in our village with cars, vans and sometimes even HGVs parked on footpaths and street corners. This practice can cause difficulties for blind and partially sighted people, users of wheelchairs and mobility scooters as well as parents with children, pushchairs and buggies. At worse, it means people may have to step out into a busy road to avoid a vehicle parked without consideration.
Melling Neighbourhood Plan
Melling Parish Council has produced a draft Neighbourhood Plan and will shortly be seeking your views!
What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
A Neighbourhood Plan is a planning document which will be used to determine planning applications in our area.
In 2016 the three primary schools in Aintree and Melling worked together on a local history project to learn about and to honour the lives of the local soldiers who fought and died in WW1.
Melling Parish Council had a very successful community clean up day recently with a great turn out from local residents.
I go to Jersey each year to see my daughter. This year, I went in June to take part in the Around the Island Walk, which has become one of the largest one-day fundraising events held in Jersey.
Melling Christmas Wish Celebration
On the 5th December the community of Melling came together to celebrate the festive period at the Melling Christmas Wish Celebration. There was an amazing turnout of families young and old who saw the Christmas tree lights switched on, with an appearance from Father Christmas who gave away selection boxes to all children and adults whilst people enjoyed hot chocolate, mince pies and cake with songs sung by the children from Melling Nursery, poems by Melling Primary School, carols by Melling Community Gospel Choir and performances by Wend Searle Dance Academy.
The Melling and Aintree WW1 Exhibition was opened today with a moving remembrance service performed by Aintree Family Church Revd Geoff Bentley.
Councillor Mr. Chad Thompson, Melling Parish Council’s newly elected Chairman has already given a fresh and invigorating boost to a Parish with much to celebrate.

June saw the return of the amazing scarecrows to Melling. Once again the creations were outstanding and brought lots of pleasure to residents and passers-by.
Congratulations to the winners, and a big well done to everyone who created the fantastic scarecrows, and to St Thomas Church members for organising this wonderful festival which has become a highlight in Melling’s calendar.
