The Parish Council is responsible for:​

  • provision and maintenance of the children's play areas and Outdoor Fitness equipment on the Water Meadows

  • maintenance of Outdoor Fitness equipment and the Zip Wire on the Village Playing Field

  • maintenance of the roadside verges and hedges in some parts of the parish

  • provision of dog and litter bins

  • maintenance of some street lights

  • maintenance of the church clock and the war memorial

  • repair and upkeep of bus shelters in the parish.

The Parish Council is looking to form a group of volunteers to help maintain Scarning Water Meadows. If you are interested or want more information please contact Nick Hartley ( or 687492). We are looking for a qualified/experienced individual to run the group. If you know anyone who can help, please let us know.

The next Parish Council meeting will be an online meeting on 21 September (see agenda for full details). Please email or write to the clerk in advance of the meeting if you would like to join the meeting as a member of the public by no later than 5pm on 18 September.

We are pleased to announce that in accordance with Government guidelines, the play areas will open again on July 4. Please note that we are unable to regularly sanitise the equipment and the equipment has not been sterilised. We have erected signage advising all users to maintain social distance in accordance with Government guidelines and wash or sanitise their hands before and after using the equipment. We would suggest that users of the Outdoor Fitness equipment do so in a clockwise direction to minimise contact with others.
