Edwinstowe Parish Council

Edwinstowe Parish Council Information

Edwinstowe Parish Council consists of eleven elected Parish Councillors who serve for four years. They are volunteers and receive no payment. They make the decisions at the monthly Council meetings. There are also committees including finance, planning, events and the Edwinstowe Village News editorial board.

Parish Council Responsibilities

Our responsibilities include:

Picking up the litter, keeping everywhere tidy and basic maintenance (you’ll see our staff and the van around the village every week).

The childrens play areas and open spaces (but not Fourth Avenue – that is Newark & Sherwood District Council). We’ll soon be taking over the new park next to the old Rufford School site on Mansfield Road, to be named “Edwinstowe Jubilee Park”.

  • The Cemetary.
  • The Allotments.
  • The Village Hall (which is looked after by a management committee). The Parish Office is in the Village Hall.
  • The War Memorial.
  • Providing dog waste bins.
  • The public toilet on Mansfield Road.
  • Some of the seats around the village.
  • The Christmas lights.
  • Organising events such as the Christmas lights switch on and the Remembrance Parade.
  • Keeping the verges cut.
  • Walking the footpaths and rights of way.
  • Producing the village magazine – “Edwinstowe Village News!”.
