Werrington is a village in the picturesque Staffordshire Moorlands, on the border of Stoke-on-Trent.  Up until 1974, Werrington had formed part of Cheadle Rural District Council, before amalgamating with Caverswall to form Caverswall with Werrington Parish Council.  Meetings were held in each area in alternate months.

In 1988 it was agreed that Werrington was now large enough to become a Parish in its own right and Werrington Parish Council was formed.  Throughout its history, Council meetings have been held on the 2nd Monday of each month in the function room at the rear of the village hall.

 

The Duke of Edinburgh

10th June 1921 – 9th April 2021

Werrington Parish Council is saddened by the news of the Duke of Edinburgh’s passing.  The Parish Council and the residents of Werrington send their deepest condolences.

Please place memorial tributes at the Memorial Gardens, Ash Bank Road.

The additional advice below has now been issued:

 “The Royal Family have the safety and wellbeing of the public in mind during these challenging times. The Family therefore ask that anyone wishing to express their condolences does so in the safest way possible, and that the public not gather at Royal Residences.

 In accordance with public health advice, members of the public are asked to continue to follow the current Government coronavirus guidelines, particularly on avoiding meeting in large groups and on minimising travel, to keep themselves and others safe. 

Members of the public may wish to consider making a donation to a charity of their choice, or one of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Patronages in memory of His Royal Highness, instead of leaving floral tributes.”
