Next Meeting of the Parish Council 12th January 2022

The meeting will take place at the WI Hut on Bubup Hill,  Loversall. The agenda for the meeting can be viewed by clicking on the ‘Parish Council’ Tab and then selecting ‘Meetings Minutes and Agendas’.

Covid Precautions

In view of the high rate of transmissibility of the Omicron variant, which is now the dominant strain in Doncaster, anyone wishing to attend the  meeting is asked to be socially responsible by  wearing a mask, socially distancing and  taking a lateral flow test on the day of the meeting. Thankyou 

Dog Fouling

Regrettably there has been a spate of dog fouling on the pavements through the village. We would like to make everyone aware that there is a maximum penalty of £1500  for not clearing up after a dog. Doncaster Council has recently prosecuted a dog owner who was fined the maximum £1500.  The vast majority of dog owners do the right thing but there are always the irresponsible few. In particular if your children take the dog out make sure they have poo bags and remind them it is an offence not to clear up. The waste bin at the end of the village can be used for poo bag disposal. Let’s be good neighbours.

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

The Queen will celebrate her Platinum Jubilee in June 2022. A small group of residents is looking at how  the Jubilee could be celebrated with an event  in Loversall. If you are interested in being part of planning such an event please email and we will pass your details on.

Vacancy for post of Parish Clerk

The vacancy has arisen following the retirement of Lindsay Wilson who has served the Council for six years. The Council by law must employ a person to act as the “Proper Officer” / “Responsible Finance Officer” . Because the Parish Council is very small we do not have the resources to employ a Clerk on anything but a very part time basis but the role is an extremely important one, ensuring that Council business is conducted legally, following national guidance and ensuring adherence with the Councillor Code of Conduct.  The Clerk is also responsible for following up actions decided by the Council and responding on the Council’s behalf to consultations by third parties. Experience in administration/finance and IT literacy is essential.

For further information and a full job description please email

(The role of Clerk can be undertaken on a temporary unpaid basis by a parish councillor and Cllr Keith Wilson,  is currently undertaking the role on this basis, as on a previous occasion)

Accounts for year ended 31 March 2021

Each year parish councils prepare an annual governance and accountability return (AGAR) which relates to the proper governance of the council’s finances.  The detailed accounts are audited by an independent internal auditor. Provided the external auditor’s criteria are met, parish councils with small levels of income and expenditure can be exempt from an external audit (and associated costs).

All of the relevant  AGAR documents for Loversall Parish Council 2020/21 can be viewed by clicking on the ‘parish council’ tab at the top of the page and then clicking on the ‘finance’ tab.

Each year parish councils must issue a Notice of Public Rights with regard to inspection of accounts and this notice was published in a previous post

Loversall Parish Councillors 2021-2025

Following the May 6th 2021 local elections, the Parish Councillors for Loversall are: Nicola Harris, Spencer Morris, Nigel Tomlinson, Keith Wilson and Colin Wright. They will serve for up to four years. Further information about your parish councillors can be found by clicking on the Parish Council tab at the top of the page.

Parish councillors are elected or co-opted volunteers from the parish and carry out their role as a public service  without any form of payment. Just like Borough and County Councillors, they must agree to be bound  by a code of conduct, which requires them to undertake their duties fairly, impartially and honestly in the public interest. They must also disclose any pecuniary interests that they might have and which might prove to be a conflict of interest with their role as Councillors. These interests are included with the information provided on each of the councillors on this website.

The Chairman of a parish council is elected annually and is a statutory post defined in law. Keith Wilson, who has been the Chairman of the Council for nine years,  decided not to stand as Chairman in 2021/22 and Nigel Tomlinson has been elected in his stead.

If you have any questions ,  concerns or suggestions to improve the village  then you can either speak to one of your councillors direct or contact the Clerk at
