The Town Council is currently offering a reduced service which may mean from time to time that the office has no staff present at the Town Hall.  We are however working behind the scenes to maintain Town Council functions as much as possible.  Therefore, you can contact us via email at office@wimborne.gov.uk or phone 01202 881655.  Please note that committee and Council meetings are now being held virtually via Zoom.  Further information can be found on the ‘Meetings’ page. (No new room bookings are being taken at the moment other than for Civil Ceremonies).
