Parish Council

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.
