Council notices:

The next monthly meeting of the Parish Council will be Tuesday 10th March 2020 at 7pm. Ahead of the meeting, you can find the relevant documents here.

The council has been engaging residents on green space provision within the village, from 1-29 February 2020. More details can be found here. Thank you for all the suggestions you have taken the time to submit, which we will now be reviewing.

Our planning application to demolish and replace the existing parish centre has been approved! For further monthly updates on progress please follow the dedicated page here.

In our November meeting we received reports of dogs running free in both the Churchyard and Cemetery. Please note dogs are not allowed in the Churchyard whilst owners must keep dogs on a leash in the Cemetery and on the footpaths. Also as a matter of respect we would be thankful if dogs are not allowed to defecate in the grounds.

Library notices:

You can visit the library’s dedicated site (with information on opening hours) here.

Not been to the library before and unsure of what to expect? Take a virtual tour here

If anyone has any fund raising ideas for the library and want to promote their ideas or help with existing events please let the library volunteers know.

Also to continue to promote new members, we have gained 29 new members since our last meeting and we would again ask our existing members to continue letting people know that there is a library in Crofton and where we are, and we thank them for their continued support and promoting the library.

It has also been agreed to have a Food Box in the Parish Centre for non-perishable foods to be given to those who have been identified who are in need. Any food donated will be picked up on a regular basis.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance is looking for Community First Responders in the Crofton/Walton area.

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 data protection policies found here and here and our Conditions of Use found here.

Please navigate using the page headers or search bar. Suggestions can be made here whilst general enquiries and matters to be included on the agenda for our monthly meetings can be sent from here.

Lastly, we would be grateful if you could please follow us on Facebook and Twitter and spread the word about this website! Please ensure your read our social media policy here.

Thank you,

Crofton Parish Council
