Now that Coronavirus lockdown has been eased, we have been informed that we can advertise the two following vacancies on the Town Council. However, please note that if a parish by-election is requested by the Loftus electorate, the election will need to be delayed until May 2021 due to Coronavirus legislation
Please note that the office at Loftus Town Hall is currently shut and no Council meetings are taking place. The Allotments Committee is therefore unable to meet to consider any applications. Meetings will recommence in-line with Government Guidelines. You can of course still apply for an allotment and all applications are considered in application date order, but there will be a delay in approving any applicants for tenancy. Please also note that all Poultry Plots are currently tenanted so if approved for a Poultry Plot you will be placed on a waiting list, but you a can also apply for a cultivation plot in the meantime.

A huge congratulations to Cllr Barry Hunt for raising £15500 for SSAFA. SSAFA were delighted to attend the Loftus Art Gallery on Thursday evening and receive this amazing donation. Cllr Hunt slept out at 11 Cenotaphs across East Cleveland leading up to Remembrance Sunday 2018 and also raised money throughout his Mayoral year 2018-19. In his speech Cllr Hunt explained he had chosen SSAFA as his Charity as he felt that there were ex-servicemen and their families that were not getting re help they should, but thanks to SSAFA, this was changing - he was very proud and humble to present the cheque and said this was once of the best causes he had ever been involved with. Cllr Hunt also thanked everyone who has donated, sponsored and supported him throughout this endeavor. Tom McCune and Frank Dooley from SSAFA expressed their sincere gratitude to Cllr Hunt for the money and awareness raised and confirmed this was one of the most remarkable individual efforts of fundraising for SSAFA Cleveland they had witnessed.
