Welcome to Crofton Parish Council’s website

Hello and a very warm welcome to the new and updated website provided and managed by Crofton Parish Council. The site is still under construction in some areas however we do not anticipate it to be long before it has full functionality as currently envisaged.

Although this website has been created primarily to publicise the council’s operations, it has been designed with the end-user (a current or prospective resident of the village) in mind, and therefore looks at bringing together a holistic view of community life and engagement, of which the council forms an important part, so that residents may engage with all aspects of community life as desired.

Before using this site please ensure you familiarise yourself with our General Data Protection Policy, Website Data Protection Policy, and Conditions of Use

Please navigate using the page headers or search bar. You can make suggestions using our dedicated page, whilst general enquiries and matters to be included on the agenda for our monthly meetings can be sent to the Clerk using a range of communication methods. 

Lastly, we would be grateful if you could please follow us on Facebook and Twitter and spread the word about this website! Please ensure you familarise yourself with our social media usage policy in connection with this.

Thank you,

Crofton Parish Council
