I just wanted to write and thank the Downley Parish Council for letting us use Mannings Field for our circus event.  It was a brilliant evening and was amazing to hear all the children laughing so much!  We're busy adding up all the numbers so not sure how much we have made but it was certainly worth it to see everyone having such fun!

Thank you so much!

With kindest regards

Councillor Richard Bowden

We are deeply saddened to announce the death of Councillor Richard Bowden who passed away on 17th September. Richard had been a Downley Parish Councillor for many years. He chaired our Finance Committee & was the driving force behind the Council’s lighting project which sees the replacement of sodium lights throughout the Parish with energy efficient LED Lighting. Richard had resigned from the Council on 14th September aware that his illness prevented him from continuing his Council work with the commitment he had previously shown. Our thoughts at this time are with Richard’s widow Valerie & with his family & we are grateful for the years of service Richard provided to the community.

Street Lighting

The replacement of all sodium lights in the Parish with LEDs continues.
