Welcome to Culworth Parish Council's website. Our aim is to give you easy access to information relating to both the Parish Council and the village itself.
The Council is currently made up of seven elected members from across our community. The Councillors bring a wide range of outside experience to their work and are ably supported by our very proficient and helpful Parish Clerk.
We represent a lively community fortunate enough to live in a beautiful part of Northamptonshire. Culworth is a thriving village with a primary school, popular pub, a butcher, and coffee shop. A number of our local clubs and organisations have suffered during the pandemic and we hope to support their revival as the lockdown is lifted, and inspire the development of other clubs and activities so that there is plenty to do and enjoy for everyone.
The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin serves the community as part of a group of parishes which also includes Chipping Warden, Edgcote, and Moreton Pinkney.
We hope you will enjoy exploring our website and find what you are looking for. If you don’t please tell us – the site is here to help you.
Councillor Andrew Wilby
A message from our Parish Clerk Jose regarding the village Jubilee events:
"Are you all thinking of making a scarecrow? Cakes, flower arrangement (- doesn't have to be conventional but maybe express some aspect of the UK or whatever you would like). Please encourage children to make cakes, arrange some flowers in church, and make a scarecrow. The garden competition is all-inclusive. Please don't think you need a weed-free ,immaculate garden - the judges may well like weeds! Come and join in the fun. Culworth Snappers has an exhibition in the church already of some spectacular shots of the village. See if you recognise them. Please collect and deliver competition entry forms at Mumfords', The Red Lion Barn or Forge Coffee for collection."
