A jubilant year ahead!

As the gavel was struck on Tuesday 24th May at the Shaw and Crompton Annual Parish Council meeting, Councillor Louie Hamblett was unanimously appointed as Chair of Shaw and Crompton Parish Council 2022-23.

Cllr Hamblett thanked council for their support and his predecessor Councillor Berry for his support also.

He also added that voluntary service is an integral part of our communities and he will be working to support some hard-working charities this year.

His chosen charities are Pennine Mencap (Autistic and SEND Support), Royal British Legion (Shaw and Crompton Branch) and Dr Kershaw’s Hospice.

His partner Stephen will be his consort for his civic year and they will become the first openly LGBT+ couple to hold the post, along with Cllr Hamblett being the first autistic Chair for the council.

His colleague Councillor Joe Beeston has also been appointed as Vice Chair for the ensuing year.
