To Woughton Community Council

Woughton Community Council is the council closest to the residents in the parish of Woughton. The Community Council is here to support residents by representing their views on issues affecting them. We provide environmental and community facilities. On our website you will find information about Woughton Community Council’s services, as well as news about upcoming events and projects.

You can also get information at our office, based in the Local Centre on Coffee Hall. We are open each weekday between 9am – 5 pm (except Friday, when we close at 4pm and Wednesday, when we close at 1pm for staff training). More details on our ‘Contact Us’ page.




Community Fridge Update

Rules for accessing the Community Fridge

Following our post and comments on Facebook yesterday, we think it is important to clarify a few issues:

Throughout the pandemic, we have offered free face coverings. If you do arrive at the fridge without a face covering, we will happily provide a disposable mask, but would ask that this is the exception, rather than the rule. We would also ask you to bring a bag.

You will have seen that other food providers have closed, as they feel unable to keep people safe – both staff and customers. We are trying NOT to go down this route but will be monitoring this and, if we do need to close then we will. Due to our need to protect more vulnerable staff and visitors, we will be reducing our opening and only offering 2 sessions each week – Tuesdays and Thursdays. This will be the case until further notice.

We continue to see high numbers of infections across the city and across the parish. We are seeing public sector workers lose their lives to the virus. With up to 1 in 25 people infected and many of them not showing symptoms, we must manage the risk associated with this service. This is about keeping staff, volunteers and people who visit the fridge, safe.

In order to keep the service operating and the fridge open, we have to ensure that we are able to operate safely and ask for your support in this matter – this is about all of us working together to keep each other safe.

We have posted this on the Facebook page, updated the original post to clarify and will continue to update as and when things change.

Coronavirus News

With the new ‘lockdown’, there is a lot of change and news happening each and every day. Whilst we will keep our main coronavirus page updated, we will also add any recent developments here on the homepage.

MK Libraries (@MKLibraries) | Twitter

During lockdown, you can still access Milton Keynes Libraries, but online.
e-books, audiobooks, online comics and graphic novels, newspapers, magazines and periodicals, online courses, even driving theory test practice. There is absolutely LOADS to find.
You can also do ‘click and collect’ – check the Facebook or website for more information.



Settled Status Support

Following discussions at our Full Council meeting in December, it was suggested that to support all our residents, we enable people who are EU nationals to apply for ‘Settled Status’, to enable them to continue to be part of out community post June 2021.
The government link is for information and advice around this.
If you feel you would benefit from some support with this, please contact us and we can see how we can help.





Waste Collections for Christmas and New Year


Community Fridge News

We are please to say that the Community Fridges are now open again, different times and a different system, but back up and running. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FRIDGE IS CURRENTLY CLOSED ON WEDNESDAYS, DUE TO STAFFING AND SAFETY ISSUES 

You will be asked what you need from a list of what we have. A maximum of 10 items per visit – hand sanitiser provided and please wear a mask when visiting. If you have symptoms, please don’t attend, but if you are in need, give us a ring and we can sort something out.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for ‘one off’ openings, if we have lots of stuff and enough staff / volunteers!

Following advice from Central Government and in line with safety precautions, as from 17th March 2020 the following actions have been taken to protect local residents and staff and help reduce the impact of the virus:

This is clearly a difficult time and these decisions have not been taken lightly. We have to protect our staff, our councillors, our residents and those we come into contact with. Whilst many of us don’t fall within the ’high risk’ categories, many of us do and the need to protect everyone is paramount.
