Clerk: Chris Pilkington

Who we are & what we do

The Parish Council consists of seven councillors who are elected to serve for a four year term. The last election to the Council took place on 2nd May 2019. All Councillors receive no payment whatsoever.

Council Meetings are normally held on the last Wednesday of each month, except August and December - see the diary of meetings for more information.

Ledsham Council owns and maintains a small number of assets in the parish. These are the three boundary markers on the roads into the village, flower tubs along Claypit Lane, the parish noticeboard and two litter bins in the centre of the village. The Parish Council also manages the Jubilee Garden on Claypit Lane under licence from the Wheler Foundation.

For further information relating to the work of the Parish Council please contact the Parish Clerk who will be happy to give advice and assistance.



Parish Councils can establish committees with delegated powers to take decisions about certain matters. Ledsham Parish Council's only committee is its Staffing Committee, whose remit is to take decisions relating to the employment of the Clerk & Responsible Financial Officer of the Council.

The Staffing Committee has three members with its current members being Cllrs Emma Broughton, Andrew O'Leary and Paddy Parkes. Cllr Broughton is Chairman of the Committee.
