The Parish Council is made up of 11 Councillors and represent the village on various matters. We are effectively the third tier of local government, the other two being the Borough Council of Kings Lynn and West Norfolk and Norfolk County Council. We normally meet at 7.00 pm on the second Thursday of the month at Walpole Community Centre. The public is very welcome to attend and we encourage people to speak during the public participation section which is part of each formal meeting. During the meeting we will discuss varying issues which affect the community. Please refer to the meeting agenda to confirm time and topics/issues for discussion.

May 2015: was an election year: all 11 seats on the Parish Council came up for election for a four year term starting after the local elections on Thursday 7th May 2015.
Several of our existing Councillors were not standing for re-election; so new candidates were very welcome.
In the May 2015 elections, only 8 nominations were submitted for the 11 seats on the council, so all were elected unopposed. The Council can fill the remaining vacancies by co-option within six months of the election.
