Sadly one of our long serving Parish Councillors Mrs Barbara Higinbotham is leaving the Parish Council due here moving out of the Village . We are sorry to lose such a valuable Councillor and wish Barbara much happiness in her new adventure. This now leaves two positions open on the Parish Council and we look forward to hearing from any interested parties who can spare some of their valuable time to come and join us. 


Following the elections which where unopposed the following 5 candidates were successfully elected to the Coniston  & Thirtleby Parish Council. Mr E. Stead, Mrs K.Stead, Mr C.Dent, Mr P.Bannister and Mrs B. Higginbotham. As We are allocated 6 Councillors that still leaves the Council one Councillor short so if anyone is interested in joining then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

 All meetings are held at the Village Hall commencing at 7pm. Members of the public are welcome to attend and are given an opportunity to raise issues with the Council during public participation.
