Welcome to the Farlam Parish Council website


In May this year the Parish needs to elect  new Councillors.  Some of the existing Councillors are not standing for re election.

There are only 6 meetings in a year and any more time that you give to the Parish is at your own discretion.

The Council needs more people to come forward and become involved there is no lower or upper age limit in fact it would be great for some of the young people to join, it would look fantastic on their C.V.’s

The Council is Non Political and politics are never discussed.

Forms will be available from the middle of March from the Clerk and final date for submission is 4pm on 3rd April 2019.

Next Council Meeting


13 March 2019    1930 Hrs Lacy Thompson Memorial Hall

The 2018 Play Area Inspection Report  click on the  link to down load the report.

You will see from the report that chains are showing signs of wear and the posts also have problems. The Council spent over £500.oo in February 2017 to replace one post and a number of smaller items that had worn.  

The play area is entering into the latter stages of its useful life and I think that if the community wishes to retain a play area then serious consideration should be given to MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY forming a GROUP to raise funds to revamp the area with particular attention being paid to installing modern equipment on a proper play area base NOT a soggy field with grass that cannot be kept cut or moles out.  If a group cannot be formed the Parish Council will have no option other than to remove items as they become beyond repair.
