The Parish Council is your voice in the attractive North Norfolk villages of Bacton and Edingthorpe. We meet once a month (except August and January) and we represent the interests of our two villages.
Parish councils do have quite a few powers (though some of these are quite obscure) and we are consulted about many things that affect the villages. We can be a focal point for matters of concern. The Council also provides and facilitates amenities in the village. We are keen to promote our villages and are always receptive to ideas and suggestions.
The Council meets on the second Monday of the month. Meetings are held in public in the Bacton Village Hall, starting at 7pm unless otherwise notified.
We are often confronted by people who say "Why doesn't the parish council do........?" The reality is that all of us who are councillors are volunteers: we give our time for nothing and all parish councillors do much more for the village than simply attending meetings. Our resources are limited, but we can achieve a lot so long as we get the support of the people who live in our villages. So next time you feel like a grumble at the parish council, come along to a meeting and say "Why don't we all get together and......?" or something along those lines!
We are developing a photo gallery of both old and modern photographs and we invite members of the public to contribute to them.
