In response to new responsibilities under the Flood and Water Management Act, Lancashire County Council and Blackpool Council have produced a joint Local Flood Risk Management Strategy. This strategy will be subject to a public consultation from 10 January – 21 February 2014 and we would like your views!
The strategy is available to view at:http://www3.lancashire.gov.uk/corporate/atoz/a_to_z/service.asp?u_id=3904&tab=1 and paper copies are also available on request.
There are two ways to give us your views - an online questionnaire is available at the Lancashire County Council Have Your Say Website:http://www3.lancashire.gov.uk/corporate/consultation/responses/responses.asp?siteid=5140&pageid=26949&e=e and we have organised a number of public drop in events.
The place-name Weeton — first recorded in the Domesday Book as Widetun — derives from the Old English wiðig (willow) and -tun (settlement). The village presumably derived its name from the presence of indigenous or farmed willows. To this day, there are fine specimens of willow trees in Weeton.
The Parish Church of St Michael's Weeton was built in 1843 on land granted by the Earl of Derby.Today this Grade II listed building provides a place for worship and is joined with the Parish of Weary Green.
The Parish Council is responsible for the governance of Weeton and has 5 elected members and 1 Parish Clerk. The Council meets on the 1st Wednesday of each month at 7-30
The Village Hall at Weeton was brought from Yorkshire 90 years ago. During the second world war the Hall was used as a canteen for the servicemen and women based at Weeton Barracks.Since then it has received many repairs.The Hall is due to be demolished in January 2014 and replaced by a purpose built new Village Hall as part of small housing development.
No Village would be complete without a local inn. Weeton has one of the best locals around with a landlord who has won several awards.The Eagle & Child also boasts Good offers such as 2 fo1 meals Monday - Thursday but booking is essential
Each year the Village of Weeton has a Beer Fest and a Gala and many more community events
On this site you can find information on the village of Weeton including the Parish Council, The Village Hall and community events.
